  • The Low-Key Election

    The local election campaign this year lacked the effervescence of a vigorous contest for the town’s top elected office. First Selectman Pat Llodra’s strong and compassionate leadership over the past extraordinary year effectively deflated whatever political aspirations potential challengers may have been harboring for 2013. Aside from a handful of contests for council seats, for town clerk, for a school board position, local Republicans and Democrats nominated only candidates who were guaranteed election under provisions of Newtown’s charter.
