Senator Kushner Proud of 100% Voting Record During 2021 Legislative Session

Given the unique and difficult circumstances surrounding the 2021 legislative session, State Senator Julie Kushner (D-Danbury) today was proud to announce she achieved a 100% voting record, giving her district a voice in every matter voted on by the General Assembly. Sen. Kushner voted 481 times from January to June.

“From being sworn in for my second term in office outside in the cold of January due to a surge of COVID-19 to joining my colleagues on the Senate floor for special sessions in mid-June, this was an arduous but successful year for the General Assembly,” said Sen. Kushner. “Through Zoom calls and sometimes-limited access to the Senate. I was able to join several of my colleagues in voting on every piece of legislation considered by the legislature. I am incredibly proud of our successes, such as achieving expanded post-traumatic stress injury claims for more first responders. But, I also recognize more could have been done to help the public. I hope to achieve similar successes in next year’s session.”

Sen. Kushner was one of 14 Senators to achieve a 100% voting record, with 12 of those Senators including herself being Democrats. She voted to support Connecticut working families 100% of the time.
