Dunn Mayoral Announcement Sunday

by LonSeidman

A gathering will take place on Sunday afternoon from 4 – 6 pm at the VFW Farmingbury Eatery where Mayor Thomas G. Dunn intends to declare his candidacy for a fifth term as Wolcott’s Mayor. Anyone is welcome to attend.

Last week, Steven Olmstead declared his candidacy and was endorsed by the Democratic Town Committee. Olmstead is currently the Vice Chairman of the Town Council and serving his first term as Councilman from the 3rd District.

Republicans have placed James Paolino at the top of their ticket, although only as a place holder seat. Republicans generally have been supportive of Dunn’s performance as mayor, but want to ensure someone could challenge Olmstead or Dunn if anything changes in Wolcott politics.
