Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon

Thank you for visiting my website. As you know, this is an election year and we are required to follow legislative ethics rules to ensure state resources are not used for campaign purposes.

When election-year restrictions are in place, lawmakers who are up for re-election must limit outreach and external communications, including not sending out email updates after April 12, and not posting new content on our websites after June 30.

However, if you need information or have a legislative issue, please feel free to contact me with your requests and concerns and I will do my best to return your call, email or letter promptly.

Even though my legislative website will remain frozen until after the election, you can still get lots of useful information here:

Please keep in mind I am your representative year around, so don’t hesitate to get in touch!
