It's Time For a New Approach
Stephen Samela is running to be Naugatuck’s next state representative. The proud son of working class parents, Stephen and his wife Dayna both teach children with special needs at area schools. As a homeowner, Stephen knows the impact that fiscal issues like property taxes can have on a family. He also knows the value of a tight-knit community like Naugatuck. Stephen and Dayna are both members of the Congregational Church of Naugatuck, where he serves on the business and hospitality committees.
Stephen is running for state representative because he believes it’s time for Naugatuck to have a true voice in Hartford. For too long, issues that have a real, daily impact on our families — like healthcare, taxes and transportation — have gone unaddressed. As Connecticut turns the tide against the COVID-19 pandemic and begins reopening its economy, our leaders need to hear from everyone in their communities, not just from those with whom they agree.
