Mark Lauretti on Government Reform
Opposed publicly finance campaigns, but will participate
Mayor Mark Lauretti has made it official: He's running for governor in 2014. To qualify for the state's public financing system, Lauretti will need to raise $250,000 in contributions of $100 from 2,500 people.
Like many Republicans, Lauretti had
opposed establishing a system to help publicly finance campaigns when it began in 2008. However, he said it wouldn't make sense not to participate in the system as a statewide candidate. "I wasn't in favor it, but why wouldn't I use it?" he asked.
