The aftermath.

NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk Democrats are celebrating what they describe as a near-sweep in Norwalk electoral politics.

Travis Simms has crushed the competition to become District 140 State Representative, in the tally presented by Norwalk Democrats, and Chris Perone has easily cruised to reelection over Republican challenger Frank Page.

Cafero has conceded, Mayor Harry Rilling said at about 10:30 p.m.

Democrats have announced no results in the District 143 contest between Republican incumbent Gail Lavielle and Democratic challenger Stephanie Thomas.

Why was Nancy asked to leave the Republican event? Was other media allowed to remain? Is there any other media?

People of the 142 will rue the day Fred Wilms was beaten..More fiscal instability up in Hartford, and indirectly Norwalk..Duff and Nathan better deliver for Norwalk, as our taxes are about to go up dramatically…

A City with a stagant Grand List for a decade, falling property taxes and exodus of long time homeowners knows its future under further solid Democatic rule. Our high paid public Unions are rejoicing. And business will have further reason to avoid locating in Norwalk.
