Fred Camillo, a Republican, had no elective experience before his run for the legislature in 2008, but his community involvement included organizing an effort to open a community dog park and helping to oversee various youth baseball leagues and a recycling program in Greenwich. He is the founder of the Greenwich Recycling Company and former owner of A.F. Camillo Carting and Recylcing.

Camillio voted against Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's $1.5 billion tax increase, the repeal of the death penalty and the decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana. He voted for the legalization of medical cannabis. He missed a vote on the minimum wage in 2013, but voted against a minimum wage increase in 2014 and a mandate in 2011 that some private employers offer paid sick days.

Camillo was one of eight House Republicans who backed Malloy's bio-science initiative in 2011. With nearly the entire legislature, he voted during a special session the same year for a jobs bill that provided economic incentives to manufacturers, major employers and small businesses.

He missed the vote on the post-Newtown gun controls in 2013, but voted for the 2016 law requiring gun owners to surrender their firearms within 24 hours of being served with a temporary restraining order in domestic violence cases.

He lives in Greenwich.
