Third-quarter mayoral campaign filing: Harry Rilling

(Correction 11:10 a.m.: An earlier version of this story indicated the campaign had received a loan. According to the campaign’s Deputy Treasurer David Murchie, the campaign has received no loans.)

NORWALK, Conn. – Harry Rilling is on a bit of a roll as the Sept. 10 Democratic mayoral primary election nears.

Rilling was the first of the four Democratic candidates to get enough signatures to secure a spot on the ballot, and he presented the most signatures. This week he picked up endorsements from all three of Norwalk’s Democratic state legislators. Then, Tuesday, the former chief of police filed his third-quarter campaign finance report showing he raised $10,022, all from individual donors. That total was $35.21 less than money raised by Vinny Mangiacopra, Matt Miklave and Andy Garfunkel combined.

Rilling reported donations from 119 individuals, with just over 100 of the residing in Norwalk.

Rilling has raised $58,784.99 so far in his bid to become the next Norwalk mayor.

    Stuart Wells has given twice? Shouldn’t our Registrar of Voters be neutral? Come on…it only shows that this campaign will support the same old, same old. Time for Putting Norwalk First. Time for Matt Miklave to implement budget reform, and bring in qualified, talented new individuals that are honest about what they do. We can’t continue with people that say one thing and do the opposite.

  2. Don’t Panic

    Stuart Wells is the Democratic Registrar. Karen Lyons is the Republican Registrar. These are elected offices.

  3. NorwalkVoter

    You have errors in your report for Rilling. Pls recheck the payments and the loan. Not correct.

  4. Oldtimer

    “Shouldn’t our Registrar of Voters be neutral? ” Why ? Are you suggesting that every City employee should give up the right to support a candidate, maybe even the right to vote ?

    City employees see a lot of how an administration has worked, or failed to work, and form valuable opinions that should not be silenced because they work in City Hall. There are other former employees that could probably tell us a lot but choose to keep their experience, and opinions, to themselves.

  5. David Murchie

    As Deputy Treasurer for the campaign, I note that there have been NO loans to the campaign. Please correct this story.

    1. Mark Chapman

      @David Murchie
      We have corrected the story.

  6. bill

    I agree that all registrar of voters should be neutral and ineligible to donate in a primary.

  7. RU4REEL

    What is wrong with you folks, Oldtimer is spot on, city employees who live here are paying attention in some instances, sorry if you don’t like it.
    Wells is a taxpayer and he can donate to whom ever he wants, you should feel bad for him, if moccia wins Stu may be in the stew.
    Besides it shows me that Wells is his own man, it takes courage to step up like that, especially with a vindictive leader steering the ship.
    I know a few other folks donating under others names, you don’t think those are city employees?
    I did see a few city employees on the list I know though, not afraid to speak up, good for them.
    Does Stu have a Rilling lawn sign too!

  8. Asa H.M.

    To clarify, I was not asking about other city employees. While I do believe they should all be able to stand for their convictions, the perception in this case of a Registrar of Voters – and ESPECIALLY THE DEMOCRATIC ONE IN A DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY – might lead to better judgement. Oh well, this is Norwalk and better judgement is not our strong suit…
