"On February 1st, 2022 I was sworn in at our capitol as the New State Representative of Connecticut's 144th District and promised to do my utmost to uphold your faith in our constitution and in our government.

Since taking office I am proud to have successfully worked to Invest in Education, Revitalize our Economy, Defend Abortion Access, Protect our Seniors, and Fight for Veterans and First Responders.

Coming into this second election, I am proud of the work I've done to make Stamford a better home for all of us. But there is more work to be done, and I am eager to advocate for Stamford's 144th District.

Providing Affordable Options

for Stamford Residents

Lowering the Cost of Living

For many residents, Stamford has been home for generations. But rising costs have made keeping Stamford  home difficult. To combat this Hubert has:

  • Required a local fair rent commission be created in all towns with 25K+ residents

  • Extended the Free Bus Service Program and cut the car tax 

Protecting Our Seniors

Stamford is a community that cares - that's why Hubert has promised to advocate for and pass legislation to ensure that senior residents are able to age in the city they call home.

Since being elected, Hubert has:

  • Helped cut property taxes for retirees

  • Capped prescription drug costs and reduced the cost of insulin

  • Ended the pension and annuity tax

  • Strengthened policies against Elder Abuse
