The Connecticut chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) honored state Sen. Tony Hwang with its 2016 Legislator of the Year award for his work in the area of public safety.

“In 1980, Candy Lightner, a realtor from California, started Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) after her 13-year-old daughter, Cari, was killed by a drunk driver who had several previous DWI arrests,” Hwang said. “Thirty-six years later, Connecticut continues to build on what Candy Lightner started in her daughter’s memory. At the State Capitol, I continue to do all I can to work with Democrats and Republicans to make our roads as safe as they can possibly be.

Hwang ( represents Easton, Fairfield, Newtown, Weston and Westport. He can be reached at 800-842-1421 and at [email protected].

“Public safety must be our top priority, and we need to continue to make Connecticut a national model in this policy area,” Hwang said. “I am humbled to receive this honor from the Connecticut chapter of MADD.”
