Your State Senator is Focused on Creating and Protecting Jobs!


Mike McLachlan believes cost-effective job growth starts with leveraging Connecticut assets that can attract new businesses. Mike wants state government to focus on helping existing businesses – when they thrive, new businesses are born and new jobs are created.

A Danbury native, Mike hails from the McLachlan hat manufacturing family with deep roots in our community. The youngest of seven children of Harry and Helen (Deakin) McLachlan, Mike learned as a young man that community service is a high priority. Mike and his wife, Alesia, live in Danbury.
