Less than three months after filing as a candidate for the 13th District State Senate seat, Dante Bartolomeo’s campaign far surpassed the minimum required to qualify for the Connecticut Citizen’s Election Program and will make her campaign one of the first Senate races to qualify.
“I am proud and humbled by the overwhelming amount of support I have received in my campaign,” said Dante Bartolomeo. “The number of individual donations from residents in Meriden, Middletown, Cheshire, Middlefield and Rockfall is a testament to our grass-roots campaign efforts” she continued.
The “Dante for State Senate” campaign filed its first quarter campaign report on April 4th with a total of $15,750 from over 440 donors. The minimum required to qualify for Connecticut’s public campaign financing program is $15,000 from 300 in-district contributors.
Dante Bartolomeo is serving in her second term on the Meriden City Council, currently as Deputy Majority Leader, Chairwoman of the Public Works and Parks & Recreation Committee, Vice Chairwoman of the Finance Committee, and Liaison to the Board of Education.
