Connecticut Democratic State Senator Gayle Slossberg of Milford announced on Friday that she won’t be seeking another term in office. She recently recused herself from voting on Andrew McDonald, Governor Dannel Malloy’s nominee to be Connecticut’s next chief justice.
Slossberg is a centrist Democrat who’s in her seventh two-year term in the State Senate. She says she’s not seeking another term in office for personal reasons. In recent years, Slossberg sided with Republicans on some key votes including a controversial union concession deal and last year’s state budget.
