The 113th District represents solely Shelton, and incumbent Jason Perillo is being challenged for the seat by his own party.
Heller is a member of the Shelton Board of Apportionment and Taxation.
Heller is a graduate of the University of Connecticut with degrees in finance and economics.
He operates a departmental budget of $3 million in a large municipality in Connecticut.
“In this challenging economic time, I am running for state representative to bring my financial and management background to the Connecticut House of Representatives on behalf of Shelton residents,” Heller said.
Shelton Democratic Chair David Gioiello commented, “Adam Heller is committed to his family, his community and would be an asset to the Connecticut House of Representatives on behalf of the city of Shelton. Shelton Democrats are proud to support him.”
Planning and Zoning Chair Ruth Parkins and Perillo will have a Republican primary in August.
