In April I announced that I've decided to run for the Democratic nomination for State Treasurer. In the days since Treasurer Shawn Wooden announced that he would not be seeking reelection, I have received dozens of endorsements and many calls and emails from people urging me to get into the race.  These are volatile times that require significant and complex investment decisions. Now more than ever, Connecticut needs a Treasurer who has the background and experience necessary to run the office and maximize its impact. We need a Treasurer who understands finances, understands the social governance impact that office can have on corporate America, and will represent the highest standards of public service. I've spent 25 years working in finance on Wall Street and the past ten years working to help hold corporate America to a higher standard on issues that impact Connecticut residents in their everyday lives.   I want to thank Treasurer Wooden for improving the state's credit rating and judiciously divesting from gun manufacturing and Russian-owned assets. I believe that there is further progress to be made, though. We can do more to improve the lives of pensioners, workers, and residents, the fiscal health of our state, and the environmental and social impact of our state through its investments. 

I'm looking forward to connecting with you and working hard to gain your support.
