Southington Legislators in the News!

Two do us proud!  Then of course there's that other one......

Sampson, Markley break national 1 hour  fund-raising record! 

Senator Joe Markley greets Southington resident  (Illustrious) Jim Vander Eyk
as State Representative Rob Sampson looks on, while fund-raising

in front of the Southington WalMart store earlier this month.

State Rep. Rob Sampson and Sen. Joe Markley helped raise more than $24,000 to help feed local families in need recently.

Teaming up with The Salvation Army, Sampson and Markley ran one of their iconic red collection kettles outside of the Walmart on Queen Street.

Shortly after their hour-long shift started, local firefighters pulled up in an engine and dumped a manila envelope full of money into the pot.

The legislators collected more than $9,000 in checks and more than $3,000 in bills and coins.

Bruce ("Zeke") Zalaski arrested on DUI charge.

A state representative has been arrested on a drunken-driving charge following a traffic stop in Bristol.
