A group of Wilton residents, including the Republican Town Committee’s two endorsed candidates for Board of Selectmen, Lori Bufano and Joshua Cole, have announced the formation of a “slate” committee to raise money and support the two candidates in the November election.
The group, Committee for Wilton 2017, filed paperwork on July 26 with the State Elections Enforcement Commission. Wilton residents William Lalor was named chair and Jennie Wong was named treasurer.
Slate committees operate independently of party committees and can help with fundraising. Individual contribution limits for 2017 are $1,000 for individuals, as compared to $250 individual limits for individual campaign committees.
As required, Bufano and Cole have identified the committee as their sole funding source for their campaigns.
