    Sundiata Keitazulu


    Sundiata Keitazulu New Haven - Mayoral candidate Sundiata Keitazulu became the third candidate to contract with the New Haven Democracy Fund as a participating candidate for the 2013 Mayoral Election.
    Pursuant to the Democracy Fund Ordinance, Keitazulu and his treasurer Melanie Phillip Denby submitted the required Participation Affidavit and the Candidate Contract to Administrator Ken Krayeske Thursday evening, April 4, 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.
    Earlier on April 4, 2013, Keitazulu filed papers with the New Haven City Clerk’s Office officially forming his candidate committee, Citizens for Keitazulu.
    After reviewing all those filings, along with the Candidate Contract and Participation Affidavit, Krayeske accepted Keitazulu’s contract.
    Keitazulu’s participation will allow his campaign access to the Democracy Fund’s hybrid system of public campaign financing. Once Keitazulu 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), Keitazulu will be able to collect a $19,000 grant. He can continue to collect matching funds, up to $125,000.00, throughout the election.
    The Candidate Contract, Participation Affidavit and other documents will be posted on the Democracy Fund’s website. Keitazulue 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 democracyfund@newhavenct.net or 860-995-5842.

    Contact information for the participating candidate can be found in the candidate contract .pdf below.
