Democrat John Blankley, a top CFO and Connecticut business owner, and Greenwich resident for 35 years, announced today that he is running for Connecticut State Treasurer. After nearly a year speaking with residents across the State and raising funds for Connecticut's Citizens' Election Program, Blankley released the following statement:
“When my family came to America 35 years ago, as immigrants, we chose Connecticut for its great schools, natural beauty and great people. No one talked about financial problems. But today we face the daunting task of addressing budget deficits and 50 years of unfunded pension liabilities.
