Rep. Tony D’Amelio will step down from the state legislature at the end of the month to focus on family and his restaurant business, the Waterbury Republican announced Tuesday in a press release. 

First elected in 1996, D’Amelio’s departure comes after more than 24 years in office and one year before the end of his current term. In the press release, he attributed the decision in part to the impact of the pandemic on his business, Verdi at Western Hills, a restaurant in Waterbury.
