GMO activist qualifies for public financing in House race
Tara Cook-Littman, the founder of GMO Free CT, said Wednesday she already has qualified for public financing in her recently announced campaign for the state House of Representatives.
Cook-Littman, 38, of Fairfield, whose group forced passage last year of the nation’s first labeling law for foods with genetically modified organisms, is a Democrat seeking the seat now held by Rep. Tony Hwang, R-Fairfield. He is expected to run for state Senate.
“I am humbled by the outpouring of support from the community,” Cook-Littman said. “We’ve raised more than $5,000 from over 150 local residents in less than three weeks. This is a great way to kick off this campaign.”
