DANBURY DEMOCRATS ANNOUNCE A FULL SLATE OF CANDIDATES FOR THE NOVEMBER 7TH MUNICIPAL ELECTION HEADED BY AL AMEIDA FOR MAYOR
DANBURY – The Danbury Democratic Town Committee (DDTC) has unanimously endorsed a full slate of candidates for every city office for the November 7, 2017 municipal election.
“The twenty-eight officers and members of the DDTC are pleased and proud of the Democratic team that has been assembled for this year’s city election. We have incumbent office holders, veterans and people newer to the electoral political process; people of all ages, races, nationalities and creeds – women and men alike – that represent the mosaic that makes up our city,” Chairman Gene Eriquez said.
“This is the first time in several municipal election cycles that Democrats have offered voters a full slate of candidates for every position being contested,” he further noted. “We are together and working hard to earn their vote,” Eriquez added.
There are 42 candidates led by Al Almeida for Mayor, Frank Salvatore, Jr. for City Treasurer, and Joan Bielizna for Town Clerk at the top of the ticket. They are followed on the ballot by 21 candidates (including 6 incumbents) for the City Council, and 3 candidates (including 2 incumbents) for four-year seats on the Board of Education. There are 9 candidates (including 3 incumbents) for Regular Member positions on the Zoning Commission, 3 candidates for Zoning Commission Alternate Member posts, and 3 candidates for Constable positions (including 2 incumbents).
In addition, due to the resignation of Board of Education member, Holly Robinson, effective August 1st, the DDTC will nominate a candidate next week to vie for the remaining 2 years of her term of office. That candidate will seek a two-year term for the Board of Education on the November ballot.
