“[We are] so very fortunate to have such a dedicated and effective team to represent Greenwich at the State Capitol,” states Richard DiPreta, Chairman of Greenwich RTC. “Senator Scott Frantz and State Representatives Mike Bocchino, Fred Camillo and Livvy Floren are intimately connected in our community and fight tirelessly for their constituents every day. This session they successfully passed a bi-partisan budget as the minority party in the House; with a budget that includes no tax increases and no tolls. We are proud to once again nominate this team as the Republican candidates for State Senator and State Representatives. They are exactly the candidates we need to pull the State of Connecticut out of the fiscal crises created under the Malloy administration.”

“I am honored to have the trust of the voters to run again for the 36th District Senate seat and was very happy to accept the nomination at the Convention.

If re-elected, I will continue as Co-Chair of the Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee to work across the aisle as I have always done in the past to generate bipartisan solutions to our fiscal challenges. We have an outstanding leadership team with two Republicans and two Democrats on this Committee and will continue to work together as harmoniously as we have in the past if we are all reelected.”

“I am humbled and honored that the Greenwich Republican party has once again endorsed my candidacy for state representative of the 150th district. As Republicans we have made great strides in Hartford producing bi-partisan budgets, phasing out the estate tax, capping spending and avoiding tax increases and tolls. There is so much more work that needs to be accomplished to create a sound, fiscally conservative economy. An economy that will attract new businesses to our state, allows those business already here to flourish and most important creates jobs and a future for our residents so that they and their children can and will remain in this beautiful state.

State Rep. Fred Camillo, 151st District of Greenwich, is seeking reelection for sixth term. Fred serves as a member of the Commerce, Executive and Legislative Nominations, and Higher Education and Employee Advancement Committees. Camillo is dedicated to advocating for public safety, consumer protection, commerce, and animal welfare initiatives in Greenwich and beyond. Fred grew up in the Cos Cob section of Greenwich and is involved in many community nonprofits including, Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich, Greenwich Boy Scouts, Greenwich Old Timer's Athletic Association, Donna Marie Camilo Leukemia Walk, and many more.

“We need to restore our beloved state to the prominence it once held and away from the reputation it has acquired as the state people flee from. Rep. Camillo said. The structural reforms we fought for and that became part of the 2017 budget is only a beginning; and must be continued if Connecticut is to turn this ship around. It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve the people of my home district and to be their voice in the People's House in Hartford and I hope to continue that service for another term.”
