State Representative Vincent Candelora (R-86) has been named Legislator of the Year by the Connecticut Retail Merchants Association (CRMA) for his commitment to understanding the issues of retail merchants and for advocating on their behalf in the legislature.
Candelora, the House Republican deputy leader, was honored by CRMA at the 18th annual Awards Luncheon on Oct. 4 in Hartford.
CRMA specifically mentioned Candelora’s efforts of understanding what it takes to run a retail business as he is a retailer himself.
