SHELTON, Conn. (WTNH) – Matt McGee, 18-years-old, is a senior at Shelton High School. He is running for Alderman in Shelton’s third ward election Tuesday November 5, 2019.

The 18-year-old student is one of two Democratic nominees, and running against Republican incumbent Board of Aldermen President, John Anglace, and Republican incumbent Cris Balamaci.

McGee’s driving force is Shelton’s underfunded education budget.

McGee said in a release, “Shelton schools are underfunded by $3000 per student, and as a student I have witnessed first hand the effects of such an underfunded budget. Increased class sizes, aging books and technology, and burdensome fees such as pay to play are my top concerns.”
