Secretary of the State Denise Merrill presided over the ceremony in the State Capitol House Chamber. Fox was elected last Tuesday in a special election. He takes over the seat that was held by Carlo Leone.
“I am honored that the residents of my district in Stamford have put their faith in me to represent them in these challenging times,” said Fox. “It’s time to get to work on the state budget and turning this economy around. I’m excited by the opportunity”

“Rep. Fox brings a wealth of experience to the Capitol that will be very beneficial as we face the challenges ahead,” said Speaker of the House Christopher G. Donovan, who attended the ceremony.
“It is an honor to be a part of the Stamford delegation to the General Assembly,” said Fox. “My predecessor always worked hard for the people of the 148th District. I plan to continue that tradition. We have a lot of work ahead of us, and I am ready for the challenge.”
