Theresa “Terry” Bielinski Gerratana was first elected in a special election on February 22, 2011, to represent the citizens of New Britain, Berlin and Farmington. In November of 2014, Terry was reelected by her constituents to serve a third term.
Practical, down-to-earth and dedicated to bettering the lives of others, Terry’s roots in Connecticut’s 6th Senatorial District run deep. A lifelong resident, Terry has been involved in her community as a concerned citizen, a volunteer, an organizer, an activist and a legislator for more than two decades. In her third term in the state Senate, she will serve as co-chair of the Public Health Committee and vice-chair of the Government Administration and Elections Committee.
Terry first served in the Connecticut General Assembly as a member of the state House of Representatives for ten years, from 1993 to 2003. During her time in House, Terry distinguished herself from the rank-and-file as a thoughtful leader while serving as co-chair of the Human Services Committee.
Terry was instrumental in passing children’s health care legislation as well as managed care and mental health reform. She worked to create a breast and cervical cancer early detection and treatment referral program, to require health insurance plans to provide 48-hour inpatient care for mothers and infants after normal child delivery and to create a work incentives program for people with disabilities.
Terry’s commitment to social change and the betterment of people in the 6th District and across the state of Connecticut has been recognized by many groups, including the League of Women Voters of Connecticut, the ARC of Connecticut, the Connecticut Association of Social Workers and the Connecticut Medical Society.
Dedicated to “good government,” Terry served as a commissioner of the State Elections Enforcement Commission from 2007 to 2010, where she worked directly on implementation of the state’s Clean Elections Program. She is also a former Ethics Commissioner for the city of New Britain, a position she held from 1990 to 1993.
In addition, Terry has been president of the League of Women Voters for the New Britain area and president of the Junior League of Greater New Britain. She has deep roots with area organizations, including New Britain General Hospital (now the Hospital of Central Connecticut), the Klingberg Family Center, the New Britain-Berlin YMCA, the New Britain Library board, the New Britain YWCA and local arts organizations.
Terry received her Bachelor of Science at Central Connecticut State University and was certified as a secondary school teacher. A mother and grandmother, Terry and her husband, Dr. Frank Gerratana, reside in New Britain.
