NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk’s mayoral candidates have both been thumping their chests – their campaign war chests, that is – this week ahead of the Thursday filing deadline.
Democratic candidate Harry Rilling reported Tuesday that his campaign had raised $36,380 in the August-September reporting period, giving him a total of more than $95,000 raised since he announced his campaign.
Wednesday, incumbent Republican Richard Moccia’s campaign reported raising $47,180 for a total of $70,000-plus for the campaign.
“We had a great couple of quarters, and we are right on budget with four additional fundraisers to take place before the election,” said Moccia campaign manager and RTC Chairman Art Scialabba in the Wednesday press release.
In Tuesday’s release, Rilling said, “I have been amazed at the generous response of so many personal friends, community activists and leaders in Norwalk during my fundraising efforts. These results prove that the people want new leadership for a better Norwalk.”
