GOP Treasurer Candidate Thad Gray Gains Momentum With New Endorsements

Thad Gray, a Republican, wants to be the state's next treasurer. He picked up some key endorsements last week.

Thad Gray, a Republican running for treasurer in Connecticut, announced a number of endorsements last week that would appear to give his campaign forward momentum in the early weeks of 2018.

In a press release, Gray announced endorsements from eight members of the Republican State Central Committee. These eight will be among key state and local leaders endorsing candidates at the party’s May 2018 convention.

Gray’s endorsements included:

  • John Morris of Goshen from the 30th district, which includes 14 towns in Litchfield County
  • Ginny Landgrebe of New Milford from the 30th district
  • Melissa Russell of Bethlehem from the 32nd district
  • Marianne Clark of Avon from the 8th district
  • Mary Ann Turner, Enfield from the 7th district
  • Paul Smith of Windsor Locks from the 7th district
  • Chuck Pyne of Woodbridge from the 17th district, which includes towns in the Naugatuck Valley
  • Michael Meadows of Sprague from the 19th district, which includes Norwich

Gray said of the endorsements:

“It’s a real honor to be supported by these outstanding Republicans who go the extra mile to help recruit, support and elect competitive candidates across our state.”

…”It is critical that the Republican candidate for State Treasurer communicates a plan to repair the damage done to our pension funds and earns political support to win this election.”
