Stamford Mayoral Race

Democrat Martin is Stamford's next mayor

Nov 6, 2013

Democrat Stamford mayoral candidate David Martin defeated Republican Michael Fedele to become the city’s next mayor Tuesday night. Unofficial vote results had Martin clinching the victory by about 13-hundred votes. 

By 9 p-m Fedele announced he was conceding after Martin took 11 of the 20 precincts. Democrats say Martin’s win was a result of grassroots support. They say Martin was able to tap into a feeling that city government had become less than transparent over the last four years. Martin acknowledged the work had just begun.
