The Working Families Party has endorsed Theresa Conroy for State Representative in
the 105th Assembly District which includes the towns of Seymour, Beacon Falls and
Conroy was one of the first lawmakers to recognize the opioid epidemic as a public
health crisis. She has been instrumental in limiting prescriptions to opioids and
increasing access to lifesaving overdose reversal medications.
“Representative Conroy is a tireless advocate for working families in her district. She's
worked hard to protect funding for hospitals, championed innovative healthcare
programs to reduce opioid use in the Valley, and has been an integral player in reviving
the manufacturing sector,” said WFP State Director Lindsay Farrell. “She's tough and
she consistently delivered results, and that's exactly the kind of candidate we endorse.
We're proud to support her candidacy.”
This year, Conroy took on Governor Malloy as he slashed funding to Griffin Hospital,
risking jobs and patient care. While Republicans all voted "no," Conroy and her
Democratic colleagues restored Griffin's money.
“Working families are the heart and soul of Seymour, Beacon Falls and Derby,” Conroy
said. “I will always fight for you in Hartford.
Conroy has been a vocal proponent of training students in advanced manufacturing and
has supported upgrades to programs at NVCC and Platt Tech.
Theresa Conroy is a legislator and an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse. She worked
for 28 years at the VA Health Center in West Haven.
