Mayor John DeStefano Jr. and New Haven Democratic Town Committee officials will endorse Democrat Ned Lamont SOM ’80 for governor Wednesday morning at the John C. Daniels School of International Communication Interdistrict Magnet, according to a press release.

Lamont announced his bid for governor in Hartford in February. His running mate for lieutenant governor is Mary Glassman, mother of Amanda Glassman ’10. Mary Glassman, the six-term first selectman for Simsbury, Conn., was originally also running for governor but exited the race Monday to join Lamont’s ticket.
