Harp Supporters Collecting Petition Signatures To Ensure Primary Ballot Slot

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ Supporters of New Haven mayoral candidate Toni Harp are continuing their efforts to collect thousands of signatures to place her name on the September primary ballot.

The city’s Democratic Party missed a key deadline to turn in the results from their July 23 convention, forcing the party’s candidates for mayor and other local offices to collect signatures and petition their way onto the Sept. 10 primary ballot.

Harp’s campaign said it needs to collect 2,406 signatures by Aug. 7.

Harp had won the party’s backing with overwhelming support from the town committee on July 23.

Several hundred of Harp’s supporters gathered on Thursday night pick up petitions. Her campaign was urging others to stop by the Whalley Avenue headquarters over the weekend to pick up petitions or sign a petition.
