Former Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele made it official this morning: He’s running for Mayor of Stamford.
Fedele, a Republican who also served in the legislature, said he filed the necessary paperwork with the city clerk. “My life and career have been shaped by Stamford values,” Fedele said in an email. “Stamford is not only my home – it has also been in so many ways, my life.
“I went to our public schools. I met my wife here and we raised our family here. I founded an information technology business from scratch here. I did achieve success with the opportunities our community provided to me and I am running for Mayor to make sure we expand those same opportunities now and make sure they will still be here for our children and grandchildren.”
All signs point to an intense mayoral race in Stamford. Minutes after receiving an email announcing Fedele’s candidacy, a fundraising email from Democratic mayoral candidate William Tong arrived in my inbox.
