Letter from Terrie Wood, February 6, 2020

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The legislative short session began yesterday and runs until midnight, Wednesday May 6th.

The first day of session is always filled with great energy and optimism.

I’m enthusiastic to continue the responsibility of representing the 141st district, and encourage anyone who lives in district to reach out with ideas, questions or concerns. I am honored to continue this work on your behalf!

My committee assignments remain the same as last year: Human Services; Finance, Revenue and Bonding; and Higher Education and Employment. I continue in a leadership role as House Republican Policy Chairman.

The Human Services Committee holds responsibility for the Department of Social Services and the Department of Rehabilitation Services.

Finance, Revenue & Bonding Committee deals with all finance, revenue, capital, bonding, fees and taxation matters and anything relating to the Department of Revenue Services.

Finally, the Higher Education & Employment Advancement Committee has cognizance over the community colleges, state university system, and the University of Connecticut – as well as workforce development programs.

My primary focus this session will be continued efforts on fiscal stability and growing our state’s economy. In addition there will be important debates on health, transportation and education and other issues.

Please follow my proposed legislation, by visiting my website (www.repterriewood.com) and click on the “Legislation” tab. To follow committee meetings and House debates as they unfold live on Connecticut’s public affairs television network, CT-N, tune your TV to Channel 59, or stream the proceedings online at www.ctn.state.ct.us.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

We’re on to another new year with many opportunities to create a new path of growth and prosperity for our dear state of Connecticut. The legislative short session begins on Wednesday, Feb. 5, and finishes on Wednesday, May 6.

As we head to Hartford, a couple of things at the forefront of my mind are tolls and long-term solutions for changing the direction of our state’s fiscal path, inspired by Dan Haar’s column in the Jan. 5 Norwalk Hour article titled, “Connecticut: The Lost Decade” and the bi-partisan Fiscal Stability and Economic Growth Report published in March 2018.

Warm Regards,

Letter from Terrie Wood, October 10, 2019

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Though Connecticut continues to struggle with the big fiscal challenges of our underfunded pension liability and continued subservience of the majority party to the state employee union leaders —which is of course at the expense of common sense and respect for the hardworking citizens of our state —there are bright spots ahead. 

With some recent legislation passed to support our job creators, the revitalization of Connecticut’s Economic Resource Council (CERC), and an innovative leader signing on as president of the University of Connecticut (UConn), we have numerous reasons to keep our hope and faith alive for the future of Connecticut. 

For information on these recent events, please click here to read the fall edition of my "Hartford Current" column in the Darien Times, just released today. If you have any questions about the issues I touched on, or anything else related to state government, please contact me via the means listed below.

Warm Regards,

Terrie Wood

141st District

Will Also Serve as House Republican Policy Chairman​

Posted on January 11, 2019

HARTFORD — State Representative Terrie Wood (R-141) joined legislative colleagues on Wednesday, Opening Day of the 2019 Legislative Session, and was sworn in to her sixth term. She will serve for two years as State Representative for the 141st General Assembly District of Norwalk and Darien.

“It is energizing to be starting another Legislative Session in Hartford,” said Rep. Wood. “I truly enjoy this responsibility and will continue to do my best to represent your voice in Hartford. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime with questions or concerns about state government, and ideas for new legislation.”

Rep. Wood’s legislative committee assignments for this term are Human Services; Finance, Revenue & Bonding; and Higher Education & Employment Advancement Committees. In addition, she was named House Republican Policy Chairman.

The Human Services Committee holds responsibility for the Department of Social Services and the Department of Rehabilitation Services.

In closing, Rep. Wood commented, “This will be a challenging session given our ongoing fiscal difficulties.

I look forward to getting to work!”
