Osten backing Bhargava for state treasurer

State Sen. Cathy Osten, D-Sprague, has endorsed Greenwich businesswoman Dita Bhargava for state treasurer.

"We need someone in the treasurer's office who's going to put working families first, and that person without a doubt is Dita," Osten said in a statement. “Dita not only has the right experience, but also the right motivation for seeking this office in the first place — to make our state stronger and more financially sustainable. I can't wait to vote for her in the August primary, and I urge my fellow Democrats in eastern Connecticut and throughout the state to do the same."

Bhargava, who explored running for governor before deciding to focus on the state treasurer’s seat being vacated by Denise Nappier, is a former vice chairwoman of the state Democratic Party.
