Biography

State Representative-Elect Robin Comey is proud to serve the citizens of Connecticut’s 102nd House District, which is comprised of the shoreline town, Branford. She is dedicated to addressing issues facing Branford and Connecticut residents, from preserving the environment to advocating for health policies that improve access to care.

Comey is a small business owner and non-profit leader who has raised more than $750,000 in grants, private donations, and public funding since 2009 for projects throughout Branford in order to improve the quality of life for residents and encourage local economic development.

She has experience reaching across the aisle to garner bipartisan support to advocate for effective solutions. Comey is dedicated to introducing legislation that will increase the accessibility of affordable healthcare and care for seniors, promote support for small businesses, reduce gun violence, and protect public education.

As a local advocate she is known for efforts to enact programs and policies that support children and education. Most notably, Comey was successful in working with the Branford Board of Education, alongside other advocates, to put policy in place that outlines how schools should handle food allergies. Branford has since become a state leader in how schools address food allergies and was the model for state-wide legislation that passed in the Spring of 2017.

Comey is a member of the 3rd District on the Branford Representative Town Meeting and serves on the Education Committee. She is also the executive director of the Branford Early Childhood Collaborative, which transitioned from a grass roots community collaborative to a non-profit organization, under her leadership. She is also a member of numerous health, education and civic organizations throughout Branford.

In Hartford, Comey will bring her experience, thoughtful leadership, and track record of success to continue to work to solve Connecticut’s issue, as well as obtain resources and support for the residents of the 102nd District.
