By Staff Report

HARTFORD, Conn. – Senate President Donald Williams Jr., D-Brooklyn, announced Wednesday that he won’t be seeking re-election in the fall.

After 21 years as a state Senator and 10 years as the leader for the third floor chamber, Williams surprised many of his colleagues when he decided to call it quits.

“After serving 10 years as President Pro Tempore of the State Senate, I look forward to pursuing other challenges at the end of this term,” Williams said in a press release. “The progress we have made when facing difficult challenges, particularly in the past four years with the help of Governor Malloy, has been substantial, and Connecticut is well positioned for new growth in the years ahead.”
