Local lawmaker Dave Yaccarino will seek reelection in 2018. North Haven’s state representative announced his intention to run in an email to The Citizen, stating in part:
“It has been my honor to serve our community as your representative for the past seven years. I will continue to fight for senior issues, local education, and achieve a more fiscally sound state to benefit all of the people of North Haven and Connecticut. As a ranking member of the commerce committee, I will continue to promote policies for sustainable, high-paying jobs.
“I have been a lifelong resident of our town, and had the privilege of raising my three children, David, Joseph, and Carolyn, here as well. I am a local business owner of DJ’s Cards and Comics, which has just entered its 27th year, and have been involved in the community for over 30 years. While I’ve maintained a 100 percent voting record over the last seven years in office, my dedication is greater for the people of my hometown. I will continue holding my regular office hours at McDonald’s, and being an activate participant in our community.”
