It was a big night for Democrats in the state with two of the largest cities in Connecticut electing new Democratic mayors.
In Stamford, David Martin won his second mayoral bid with a win over former Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele. Martin will take the top spot from outgoing Mayor Michael Pavia who earlier in the year decided not to run for reelection.
In Norwalk, Republican Mayor Dick Moccia lost his 4-term tenure to the Democratic challenger, former Police Chief Harry Rilling. The City of Norwalk elects a mayor every two years.
Elsewhere in the county, First Selectman of Greenwich, Peter Tesei (R) kept his spot, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton (R) was also reelected.
