Kelvin Roldan, the Democrat representative for Hartford's 4th District, said Monday he's established a committee to explore a possible run for mayor or treasurer.
Roldan, 32, was recently named a deputy majority leader of the state House. He won re-election last year, but only after barely beating Angel Morales, an unemployed convicted felon, in the August primary.
"I will spend the next few months visiting each of our neighborhoods, engaging in an open and honest dialogue with the people of Hartford about their vision for the future of our city and discussing exactly how I can help make our city... a still stronger and still more vital community," Roldan said in a statement.
He is employed as director of strategic partnerships for Hartford public schools and is a member of the legislature's judiciary, appropriations and insurance and real estate committees.
The field for mayor already includes Mayor Pedro Segarra, city lawyer Shawn T. Wooden and longtime city politician J. Stan McCauley, all Democrats.
