State Representative Gary Holder-Winfield will begin his campaign for mayor of New Haven on Friday. The Democrat told me he will file the papers to become a candidate, a month after beginning an exploratory campaign and two months after his appearance on Face the State.
During that broadcast on December 9, Holder-Winfield told me “Mayor John DeStefano was not listening,” and that it was time for a change. DeStefano, first elected in 1993 and re-elected nine times, is announcing today he will not seek an 11th term.
