Middletown mayor announces run for governor

MIDDLETOWN —  City Mayor Dan Drew announced his 2018 candidacy for governor of Connecticut Wednesday afternoon.

Since forming his exploratory committee, Drew has raised more than $177,000 dollars.

Drew, who was elected mayor of Middletown in 2010,  is serving his third term as Middletown’s mayor, having been recently re-elected to the city’s first four-year mayoral term.
