Monica Tujak Brill, the Democratic nominee for Connecticut Senate District 21 today received the endorsement of U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro (CT-3rd Congressional District), along with numerous other organizations, in her race for Senate. The 21st District includes most of Stratford, all of Shelton, and portions of Monroe and Seymour.
Congresswoman DeLauro stated: “As Connecticut moves forward, I know that Monica Tujak Brill will be an instrumental part of the solution in its fiscal stability and long term recovery. A highly experienced CPA of 30 years, Monica has worked with large and small organizations including world famous The Frick Collection, Catholic Charities of Fairfield County, and New Opportunities, Inc., helping each administer the many services they provide and keeping expenses low. Monica is also a passionate advocate for single Moms, their children, and seniors. She’s been hailed as a News 12 “Hometown Hero” for spearheading the design and implementation of the children’s wing mural at Bridgeport Hospital. Monica also served over a decade as a home visit volunteer with Fairfield County Jewish Family Services, and as an active parent member of the Trumbull High School Golden Eagles Marching Band where her three daughters each participated on the Color Guard Team. Monica is committed to ensuring that her constituents have the means to stay and thrive in Connecticut and that is why she is running for office. I am proud to endorse her and hope you will cast your vote for Monica Tujak Brill for State Senate, District 21, on Nov. 6.”
In addition to DeLauro’s support, Tujak-Brill has received numerous endorsements from organizations representing thousands of Connecticut workers and residents including CT AFL-CIO, National Organization of Women, Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters Association of Connecticut, Communications Workers of America, NARAL, International Union of Operating Engineers Local 478, Connecticut Police and Fire Union, Planned Parenthood, Moms Demand Action, and IBEW Local 488.
Upon receiving U.S. Rep. DeLauro’s support Tujak-Brill remarked, “I am very honored and grateful to have the endorsement of Rosa, who has proven time and again to be a true champion for working families in Connecticut. What I am most proud of too are the many thousands of people who support my efforts to just do the right thing once elected—for all the people of Connecticut—and that starts with getting our state back on a sound fiscal track to strengthen our economy.”
