WEST HAVEN, Connecticut, USA, June 13, 2019 – Michele Gregorio, current Vice Chairwoman of the West Haven Board of Finance and former Chairwoman of the West Haven Republican Party, enthusiastically announced her candidacy to run as the Republican nominee for mayor.
To highlight the candidate’s commitment to recognize small business owners for their contributions to our community, the announcement took place at Full Circle Pizza, 845 Jones Hill Road, West Haven. The packed house had supporters spill over to another room and included elected officials, business leaders, volunteers and family members. A reception followed immediately after the announcement.
Gregorio stated, “From the bottom of my heart, thank you. This outpouring of support is further evidence that voters demand change after decades of Democrat mismanagement and one-party rule. Status quo politics has proven to be detrimental to our financial health and to the decline of our city. We must return West Haven to a city that attracts businesses, increases our tax base, and allows families to thrive."
David Riccio, former West Haven Councilman-at-Large and the prior Republican mayoral candidate endorsed Gregorio at the event. "Michele has natural leadership skills and has proven herself in the corporate world. A true professional in every sense and above all understands the obstacles that trouble West Haven residents. I am honored to serve as Michele’s campaign manager.”
