Not easy raising moolah during the holiday season, but it’s a necessity as John Gomes eyes January 23 and a second Democratic primary against Mayor Joe Ganim.

Gomes, judging from his Faceboook page, had a sturdy turnout at O’Manel Thursday evening, including an appearance by basketball legend Charles Smith.

Economic development consultant Kelvin Ayala emceed the event.
