HOLDER-WINFIELD SECOND CANDIDATE IN 2013 MAYORAL ELECTION TO SIGN UP FOR NEW HAVEN DEMOCRACY FUN (candidate has withdrawn from the primary race).
Gary Holder-Winfield, the second candidate to contract with the Democracy Fund as a participating candidate for the 2013 New Haven Democratic Party primary election for Mayor, withdrew as a candidate from the race on June 26, 2013. Pursuant to the Democracy Fund Ordinance, Sec. 2-830(c), Mr. Holder-Winfield will have to return whatever public funds he has not yet expended.
The Democracy Fund plans to conduct a thorough audit of the July 10, 2013 SEEC filings for all participating candidates, including Mr. Holder-Winfield, and will publish the results on its website.
Pursuant to the Democracy Fund Ordinance, Holder-Winfield and his treasurer Christine Bartlett-Josie submitted the required Participation Affidavit and the Candidate Contract to Administrator Ken Krayeske on February 21, 2013. Under Ordinance Sec. 2-824(f), the Administrator has five days to accept a signed contract evidencing the candidate’s intent to participate and abide by the strictures of the Ordinance.
On February 1, 2013, Holder-Winfield filed papers with the Connecticut State Elections Enforcement Committee forming his candidate committee, Winfield 2013 Election Election Committee. All of Holder-Winfield SEEC filings are now confirmed and available online at the New Haven Democracy Fund’s website.
Holder-Winfield’s participation allows him access to the Democracy Fund’s hybrid system of public campaign financing. Once Holder-Winfield collects 200 donations by registered New Haven voters between $10 and $370 dollars, the Fund will match the first $25 of each donation 2-to-1. Once he makes the 200 donations, and the election is contested (in that another candidate has spent $5,500.00), Holder-Winfield is able to collect a $19,000 grant. He can continue to collect matching funds, up to $125,000.00, throughout the primary election.
The Candidate Contract, Participation Affidavit and other documents will be posted on the Democracy Fund’s website. Holder-Winfield will be required to post his filings on the SEEC’s eCris website, as well, to insure the full disclosure that is at the heart of public campaign financing.
For further information, please contact Democracy Fund Administrator Ken Krayeske at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-995-5842.
