He was first elected to the state House of Representatives in 2002, following in the footsteps of his father, Gerald, who served as a state senator. Labriola serves on the General Assembly’s transportation, government administration and elections, and judiciary committees.

The 131st District represents Oxford and portions of Naugatuck and Southbury.
