Mary Stone of Old Lyme, a candidate for state representative for the 23rd District, has qualified to receive the first round of grants for 2014 under the Citizens’ Election Program.

The 23rd district encompasses Old Saybrook, Old Lyme, Lyme and coastal Westbrook.

The Citizen’s Election Program is a voluntary program that imposes contribution limits of $100 and strict spending limits. Grants vary, but typically grants for the general election are $27,850 for a House race and $94,690 for a Senate race. To qualify, a candidate must raise $5,000 and obtain signatures from 150 voters registered within the district.

Stone, a writer and editor, has served on the Lyme-Old Lyme Board of Education and currently serves on the Old Lyme Zoning Board of Appeals, the Open Space Commission, and the Lyme–Old Lyme Education Foundation.
