Today, I will be forming an exploratory committee for statewide office, including Attorney General, because Connecticut needs a fighter who will stand up for all of us.
William Tong has served for over a decade in the Connecticut General Assembly where he has successfully stood up to the NRA and Wall Street, led the passage of the Second Chance Society and bail reform and fought for historic LGBTQ legislation. A Connecticut native born to immigrant parents, William has always stood up for families like his who work every day to provide a better life for their children.
Growing up in the Hartford area, the Tong’s owned a Chinese restaurant where William worked alongside his parents before going to Brown University and then the University of Chicago Law School where he was taught by then-Professor Barack Obama. He is currently a lawyer at Finn, Dixon & Herling LLP, one of Connecticut’s leading law firms where he practiced law for 14 years.
