Representative Stephen Harding is running for the Connecticut State Senate to find the appropriate resources our communities need to be safer and more affordable and to stand up for common sense laws and voting against wasteful tax and spend policies.
Stephen Harding was raised in Brookfield and went through the public school system, and is now raising his own family in the town he grew up in. Stephen is married to his beautiful wife Kelly, a teacher at Sarah Noble in New Milford, and has two young children Carter and Piper.
He is a practicing attorney, small business owner, and has served as State Representative for the 107th District (Brookfield, Bethel, Danbury) since 2015. During his time in the legislature he has served on the judicial, education, government and elections, and environment committees. As ranking member of the environment committee, he has championed legislation which provided a continuous revenue source to addressing aquatic invasive species in our local lakes, such as Candlewood and Lillinonah.
Throughout his time in the legislature, he has focused on trying to make Connecticut more affordable by alleviating the growing tax burden faced by our small businesses and residents. He has been a continuous supporter of our law enforcement in efforts to keep our state safe. Last, he has always supported efforts to keep our zoning laws local, with a strong focus on curbing over development and preserving open space.
