HOUSE DISTRICT 109: ARCONTI WINS

November 7, 2018

DANBURY — Democrat David Arconti, Jr. has won a fourth term to 109th District of the Connecticut House of Representatives.

Arconti held an almost 1,600 vote lead at press time over Republican Veasna Roeun, a Cambodian-American National Guard veteran and city health inspector, in a rematch of the pair’s 2016 race for the same Danbury seat.

The two ran a remarkably friendly race — in stark contrast to national politics — but the pair did split on how to fix the state’s ongoing budget struggles and whether to support a local charter proposal.

Arconti campaigned against interstate tolls and suggested the state budget would benefit from a migration toward a county-style system of sharing resources across towns and regions.

He also opposes state funding for the Danbury Prospect Charter School, which would be the city’s first public charter.
