NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (WTNH) – New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart has been re-elected for her 5th term as mayor on Tuesday night.
Stewart was the incumbent and was challenged by Democratic State Representative Bobby Sanchez.
Sanchez conceded to Stewart before Stewart then announced victory.
It’s a democratic city overwhelming, but Stewart has proved successful. She’s well-known, having run for governor and lieutenant governor.
“We arguably bring the most aggressive absentee ballot program in this state. We got a 10% return rate on all the absentee ballot applications that we sent out because we knew people would be reluctant to come to the polls,” said Mayor Stewart.
