Shelton mayor Mark Lauretti qualifies for Citizens’ Election Program funding

SHELTON, Conn. (WTNH)–Shelton mayor Mark Lauretti has surpassed the $250,000 threshold in fundraising in the race for Governor.

Lauretti, a Republican, announced that he had surpassed the mark at a fundraiser hosted by Naugatuck’s mayor, Pete Hess, a Democrat, on Tuesday night. Passing the $250,000 mark means Lauretti now qualifies for the Citizens’ Election Program, which provides public financing for qualified candidates.

“While it is great news to reach the $250,000 qualifying threshold, there is much work that needs to be done. I look forward to the next year on the trail and talking to folks about the Shelton success story, to date our campaign has raised over $270,000 ” Lauretti said.

Lauretti has served as Shelton mayor since 1991.
