According to the Stamford Times, Rolf Maurer of the Connecticut Green Party failed to get enough signatures to appear as a balloted candidate for the Feb 22 special election to fill a vacant seat on the Connecticut State Senate. He will instead be running as a write in candidate:
Maurer, who ran for Stamford mayor in 2009 and for state representative in 2010, needed 251 voter signatures by Jan. 18 to get on the ballot. He did not get the amount of signatures needed, so he will be considered a write-in candidate.
