HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut State Treasurer Denise Nappier says she is seeking a fifth term in office.
Citing what she called “proven experience,” the Democrat announced Monday she has filed paperwork with the State Elections Enforcement Commission, forming a campaign committee. Nappier said she plans to participate in the state’s public campaign financing system.
Nappier needs to raise $75,000 in small contributions of $100 or less.
She’s the latest incumbent constitutional officer to announce plans to seek re-election. Democratic Secretary of the State Denise Merrill and Democratic Comptroller Kevin Lembo are seeking office again. Both plan to participate in the public financing system.
Nappier has served as state treasurer since 1999. In the post, she manages the sale of state bonds, oversees the state’s cash flow and invests the state’s pension funds.
