Treasurer

As Erick Russell becomes Connecticut’s next state treasurer, he’ll make history.

Russell will be the first Black out LGBTQ person elected to statewide office in U.S. history, according to the LGBTQ Victory Fund. Russell is an attorney who specializes in municipal finances.

The Associated Press called the race for Russell Wednesday afternoon. He won with 52% of the vote.
