Mayor, Runner & Ringmaster!

Mark Lauretti and daughter Alexis from an earlier race

Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti is one of only 36 runners who have run in every one of the Commodore Hull Thanksgiving Day Races – and he will be running again this year with several other family members. However, today  we want to be among  the first to congratulate him and wish him good luck for another major endeavor that he is undertaking. It was announced today that Mayor Lauretti has been selected to be the 2008 Ringmaster for Bridgeport’s phenomenal Barnum Festival. He has to be a runner to keep up with all the things that he is involved in! So as he passes you on the course (or maybe as you pass him!) give him a little nod and encouragement for this great honor.
