About Shawn

Shawn Dooley

First and foremost I am defined by my family. I am the very proud husband to CiCi and father to Caroline (24 - attending the US Naval Academy), Emma (16), Jack (15), and William (13).  I am the son of my hero - Captain Roy Dooley, USN who served our nation for 30 years and Nancy Clifford Dooley - the greatest mom and grandmother anyone could ask for.

Our house is very busy as we also have 2 dogs (Buddy and Fin), 3 cats (Cheshire, Bat, and Callie), 2 gerbils (Flash and Trump), 1 horse (Foxy), and a Bearded dragon named Norbert.

I was first elected in a Special Election in January 2014 and have had the honor of being elected by my community 3 more times.

I currently serve as a member on the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies; the Joint Committee on Public Health; the Joint Committee on Election Laws; the House Committee on Federal Stimulus and Census Oversight; and Special Joint Committee on Redistricting.


I have also had the pleasure to be appointed to the Conference Committees for Election Laws, Campaign Finance Reform, and most recently Automatic Voter Registration.  


Additionally, I had the special honor to have been selected by the Chief Justice of the Trial Court to serve as the non-attorney member on the Child Support Guidelines Task Force.  


Currently, I still serve as an On-Call Firefighter/EMT on the Plainville Fire Department and was recently appointed as the Senior SAFE coordinator for the town.
