Miller - Behuniak Election Babble

We're not done with local elections just yet! Seymour First Selectman Kurt Miller and Seymour Democratic Party leader Stephan Behuniak react to the referendum results in Seymour, where voters rejected borrowing $15 million for a new recreation center. Miller talks about what's next for the project. Then Behuniak gives a frank summary of his local Democratic Party, and what it's like to be a Democrat in a town that heavily favors Republicans. The pair then share their unique views on the mayoral race results in Derby, where Mayor Rich Dziekan was re-elected to a second term by a slim margin. Finally, the two share their thoughts on the heated, sometimes messy mayoral race in Ansonia.

Miller - Behuniak Election Babble

Ansonia Mayor David Cassetti

Mayor David Cassetti says he’s earned a fourth term by shepherding economic development that has transformed Main Street, brought back manufacturing jobs and laid the foundation for major investment in long-dormant former factories downtown. The Republican is being challenged Nov. 5 by Phil Tripp, an Alderman who switched parties in May. Cassetti sat down with The Valley Indy for a podcast interview last week. No questions or topics were provided in advance of the interview.
