Elicker beat out current Mayor Toni Harp in the Primary last month, securing the Democratic nomination for the city’s top job.

“I think he can be a great leader for the City of New Haven, that’s why we’ve all come together here: all the elected leaders and community leaders saying ‘this is important.’ And make sure we are turning the page and that New Haven can be what it can be.”

Mayor Harp is not out of the race. She says she will be on the upcoming ballot under the ‘Working Families Party.’
