Connecticut Green Party candidate for Attorney General Ken Krayeske grew up in Watertown, where he attended a segregated elementary school. “I didn’t quite understand it as a kid,” Krayeske said, “but Watertown is a highly suburban, car-centric experience built on racism.”

Krayeske graduated from Holy Cross High School in Waterbury and then Syracuse University for journalism. As a reporter at the Hartford Advocate in 1998, he pushed for an end to the war on drugs. In 2009, he extracted one of the most famous quotes in sports journalism history from former UConn basketball coach Jim Calhoun: “Not a dime back.”

After watching the American journalism industry implode, Krayeske turned to law. His litigation has forced an overhaul of the Connecticut Department of Correction’s healthcare system.

He has settled cases like:

Krayeske wants to create accountability mechanisms in the AG’s office to end draconian policies of state agencies against our families.

His top priority is to convert the AG’s office into a “human rights” law firm, fighting for citizens. His campaign seeks to raise awareness about the AG’s daily attacks on civil rights, defending constitutional violations by state actors.

He and his wife recently moved to New Haven after living in Hartford for 24 years. They have a kindergartener in public school.
