It’s early in the race for 1st selectman.
But the first returns are in. The initial financial disclosure statements, that is.
Democrat Jonathan Steinberg — whose campaign committee is called “Jonathan for Westport” — has raised $100 since January 1.
Republican challenger Mike Rea (“Michael Rea for Westport”) more than tripled that figure. He pulled in $375.
Incumbent Jim Marpe and his new running mate Jennifer Tooker (“Marpe-Tooker for Westport”) are waaaaay in the lead. Since January 1, they’ve hauled in $13,930.
There’s still time to contribute. Election Day is November 7.
