WILTON — Kim Healy, the Republican-endorsed candidate for the 26th state Senate district, announced on July 9 that she had met the qualifying threshold of the State’s Citizens Election Program (CEP). Healy raised $16,370 from 372 contributors.
“I am so thankful for the overwhelming support for my campaign,” she said. “I filed to run on March 17, almost a week after our local schools closed, and at the same time, the state-imposed a stay-at-home order. As an unknown in the political sphere, I expected it would be a huge challenge to get the donations needed to qualify, as limitations on social interactions resulted due to COVID-19.”
