LT. GOVERNOR BYSIEWICZ STATEMENT ON THE RESIGNATION OF SECRETARY OF THE STATE DENISE MERRILL
(HARTFORD, CT) – “I want to thank Denise for her almost 30 years of dedicated public service and for her work not just as Secretary of the State, but as a State Representative and Majority Leader. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Denise since 1992, when we began serving together in the House of Representatives. I served as Chair of the Government Administration and Elections Committee, with Denise as Vice-Chair. Together we worked to implement public financing, a centralized voter registration system, and improve the security of our state’s elections, all reforms which eventually were enacted in Connecticut.
“She has been a passionate advocate for increasing voter participation and election security, and lead our state through the 2020 election, turning out a historic 1.86 million residents. Our state elections are more secure and efficient thanks to her hard work. Our thoughts are with Denise at this time, and we send our love and prayers to her family.”
