Stacey Rosado did not report any contributions or expenditures to the Connecticut State Elections Enforcement Commission.
Rosado provided the following reasons for her 2013 campaign in the New Britain City Journal:
"Born & raised in New Britain, I am a product of our city. My mother is Polish-American and my father is Puerto-Rican. I am very proud to represent both ethnicities.
I attended New Britain schools and graduated from NBHS in 2004. A major reason why I am running for BOE is because my parents were skeptical about sending me to a public middle school in NB and I would like to work toward ensuring that parents and families have no doubts about sending their children to a school in the Consolidated School District of New Britain.
My first job was working for the City of New Britain as a camp counselor and I worked my way up to be a site-program supervisor for the Parks and Rec Dept. This experience helped me realize my passion for working with youth.
I earned a B.S. in Human Development & Family Studies and a Master’s degree in School Counseling from UCONN. My education gave me the skills and knowledge to work in the best interest of our students and our future!
If elected to the New Britain Board of Education, some important initiatives I will push for are: early literacy on or above grade level at the elementary level and for secondary schools ensuring all students have a post-secondary plan and an adult in their building to mentor them with goal setting and guidance. Increasing parental / family involvement at all levels is essential!"
What was at stake?
Five seats were at stake. Incumbent Democrats Sharon Beloin-Saavedra and Judy Greco were on the ballot. Both candidates were successful in their re-election bids. The New Britain Democratic Town Committee endorsed newcomer Daisy Sanchez for the 2013 election, who also won a seat on the board. Daniel Davis, Nick Mercier and Stacey Rosado received the endorsement of the New Britain Republican Town Committee. Only Rosado did not win a seat on the board. Current members Paul Carver, Anthony Kane and Luisa Leal did not file for re-election.
About the district

New Britain lags behind the rest of Connecticut based on median income, poverty levels and higher education achievement. The 2010 U.S. Census found the median income in New Britain was $39,838 while the state median income was $69,243. The city's poverty rate was 20.9% compared to the state's 9.5% poverty rate. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (17.5%) was lower than the state average (35.7%).
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
