New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart for governor? Newsmax.com is speculating whether she will run in 2018 for the Republican party nomination. At 29, Stewart is Connecticut’s youngest mayor.
Stewart told Newsmax she is “110 percent” focused on her job as mayor of New Britain. It is expected she will seek a third mayoral term in 2017. Newmax named Stewart to the list of 30 Influential Republicans 30 And Under last year.
Stewart is being credited with reigning in city-employee costs. “That’s because I kept talking to them, and we did compromise,” she told the website.
