Farmington, CT – Bill Wadsworth’s campaign for State Senate announced that Bill has qualified for the Citizen’s Election Program (CEP) and that the campaign’s grant application was approved by the Commission at their Wednesday July 23 meeting.
“I am excited that we reached our goal to qualify for the CEP so quickly,” said Wadsworth. “It’s an honor to have received such an outpouring of support from the communities in the district and a clear sign that people are hungry for new leadership.”
The campaign was able to reach the qualifying threshold in just two short months of fundraising. This is an important goal to have achieved so early in the campaign, and will provide momentum heading into the Fall.
“Reaching our fundraising goal will ensure that my campaign has the resources to get my message of lower taxes, less spending, and a brighter economic future to every corner of the 5th Senate District,” said Wadsworth.
As part of the campaign finance reform law, under the Citizens Election Program, State Senate Candidates must raise $15,000 in “small dollar” contributions of $100 or less. 300 of those contributions must come from towns in the District. The campaign can then apply for a grant to be approved by the Commission, which gives the campaign additional funds to spend through November.
