Steve Fontana, the North Haven Democratic state representative who lost in an upset in 2010, sent a press release today saying he “will make a major announcement on Monday, January 23, 2012, at 11 a.m. on the steps of Wallingford Town Hall.”

A pretty good hint about the nature of the announcement is found in the tiny print at the bottom of the release: Paid for by Fontana for State Senate, Sarah Aziz, Treasurer. Approved by Steve Fontana.

The 34th Senate District of East Haven, North Haven and Wallingford is now represented by Sen. Leonard Fasano, R-North Haven, who says he is running for re-election.
