    Nolan and Carter to square-off for 39th District seat

    New London ― An incumbent state legislator will face off against a former city mayoral candidate to represent New London’s 39th District this fall.

    Democrat Anthony Nolan, who is seeking a fourth two-year term in office this November, is being challenged by Beloved Carter, a Republican who unsuccessfully sought to unseat Michael Passero as the city’s mayor last year.

    The 39th District encompasses the city’s first and second voting districts. It’s third district is represented by the state‘s 40th District.

    Nolan, a retired city police officer and former City Council president, is running on a platform of supporting veterans, local economic development, education, affordable housing and mental health initiatives.

    Carter, a former pastry chef and retired director of the New London Breakfast Program, has not previously held elective office. In her recent mayoral campaign, the lifelong New London resident highlighted high taxes, an “out of control” housing market and downtown crime as issues she pledged to address.
