Ms. Shaw would like to extend her gratitude for all of the support shown, and is excited to begin working on her message of innovation and no-nonsense politics to create better opportunities for residents today, and in the future.
Candidate Lauren Shaw
for district 38 | waterford & montville
Under Connecticut public financing laws, minor parties must petition a certain percentage of the previous cycle's vote in order to receive money. Thanks to our previous candidate's hard work, I already have ballot access. Our next step will be petitioning the good people of Waterford and Montville for signatures and small donations to qualify for a partial or full grant. I know, it gets pretty complicated pretty quickly. Here's a breakdown of what we need to do to have a fair shake for this election:
1. Collect $5000 from CT residents, in amounts between $5 and $100.
2. Collect 1,800 signatures for full funding ($28,150)
There are number of ways to help! Donations in small sums, signing a petition, and spreading the word will all help increase our democracy. The more voices are heard, the more choices we have. Thank you.
