Lanier Reaches Goal to Qualify for Public Election Campaign Funds

Vicki Lanier (R) of Old Lyme has announced that in just six weeks of active fundraising, she significantly exceeded the required amount of funds and number of donors to qualify for public campaign funds to be used both in any

primary efforts and ultimately in her race against any Democratic candidate this November. Lanier’s donors have come from both statewide and the four towns with areas in the 23rd District, namely Old Saybrook, Old Lyme, Lyme and Westbrook.

Lanier commented, “I am excited by the level of support we have so quickly built for my campaign effort. My extensive experience of true civic service and real accomplishments as an elected official have prepared me for the demands of serving as an effective state assembly member. ”

She added, “With the close of the 2014 legislative session, I would also like to express my thanks to our distinguished retiring 23rd district state representative, Marilyn Giuliano. She has done an outstanding job of balancing leadership on issues with listening to constituents and advocating for their views.”

Vicki, a life-long resident of Old Lyme, was elected to the Regional District 18 Board of Education in 2009, where she served as treasurer. She holds a law degree from Quinnipiac University and practices family law. She is a contributing mentor to various women’s groups and active in community efforts supporting children and small businesses.
