State Representative Bill Simanski (R-62) took the oath of office for his fifth term representing the 62nd General Assembly District that includes Barkhamsted, Granby, Hartland and New Hartford on Jan. 9.

“I am humbled to begin another two-year term representing the people of the 62nd District,” said Simanski. “Our state continues to face major challenges, looming deficits for the next biennial budget, slow economic growth and an unaffordable cost of living. I am eager to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle and the new administration to bring structural changes to restore opportunity and affordability.”

Rep. Simanski will continue in leadership roles as Assistant Republican Leader and on the Bill Screening Committee. Additionally, he will serve as a member of the budget-writing Appropriations Committee, the Banking Committee and the Education Committee. 

The 2019 Legislative Session will run for a five-month period from Jan. 9 to June 5. Simanski can be reached at or 860-240-8700.
