HARTFORD — Fairfield First Selectman Ken Flatto dropped out of the race for the Democratic endorsement for comptroller as the first ballot was under way Saturday.
“I have decided to release my delegates and ask them to do what I’m going to do and cast my ballot for Kevin Lembo,” Flatto said. “Nancy Wyman has been one of the outstanding comptrollers of this century. I believe this ticket needs to unify. I understand there are a lot of different feelings. I ask you all come together and allow Kevin Lembo to be comptroller,” Flatto told the convention.
