Gay Man Running for Conn. Comptroller

Gay Man Running for Conn. Comptroller


Health care advocate Kevin Lembo has entered the race for Connecticut comptroller, a post that oversees the state's financial reporting.

Lembo, a gay candidate supported by the Victory Fund, was previously running for lieutenant governor but ended his campaign once Nancy Wyman, Connecticut's current comptroller, agreed to become the running mate of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dan Malloy. Before Lembo became a health care advocate, he was assistant state comptroller for more than six years and worked for Wyman -- now he's looking to succeed her as comptroller.

"Nancy Wyman has been my friend, mentor, and colleague for more than a decade," Lembo said, according to The Connecticut Mirror. "There is no one more prepared to be our next lieutenant governor. It's an honor to support her. I am also proud to launch my candidacy for the office in which she has so ably served for the past 16 years."

The comptroller's duties include serving as the state's fiscal watchdog, bookkeeper, payroll officer, and independent fiscal analyst.
