State Senator Marilyn Moore on Monday endorsed Dita Bhargava‘s campaign for state treasurer. She is challenging Democratic-endorsed Shawn Wooden, former Hartford City Council president, in an August 14 primary.
Campaign news release:
“Dita is the right candidate with the experience our state needs,” said Senator Moore. “Her deep experience in finance and her understanding of the challenges that working families in our state face is exactly what we need to lead a critically important office. I wholeheartedly endorse her candidacy and urge all Democrats in Bridgeport and beyond to vote for her in the August primary.”
Senator Moore, the Senate’s Deputy President Pro Tempore, chair of the Children and Human Services Committees and a lifelong resident of Bridgeport, joins a list of elected officials and civic organizations that have endorsed Dita’s campaign, including EMILY’s List, State Representative Chris Perone, State Representative Jonathan Steinberg, Manchester Mayor Jay Moran, Ridgefield First Selectment Rudy Marconi, and Simsbury First Selectman Eric Wellman.
“I am honored to have the support of Senator Marilyn Moore,” said Dita. “She’s a fighter who stands up for her community, and she knows that I will bring the same level of advocacy for working families to the Treasurer’s office in Hartford.”
