Only the top four make the cut. In other words, Gallo is out and no longer head of the Democratic Town Committee.
More updates to come.
UPDATE (3:10 pm): Gallo speaks to News-Times about losing the eleciton.
"I’ve been doing this since 1979," Gallo said today. "I’m going to relax."This wasn't a big surprise to Gallo, after the Democrats last the last two elections, he saw the writing on the wall.
A recount was held today because Helena Abrantes led Gallo by three votes in Tuesday’s primary, a narrow margin with more than 350 people voting. The recount was held at the Pembroke school and at City Hall, where absentee votes were tallied. Gallo was the only incumbent on the Democratic Committee to be unseated.
"We called a meeting for Monday night," Gallo said after the recount. "That’s my last official act as chairman."
Mamy rumors are circulating on who is to replace Gallo. I have the big scoop on the whole thing but I don't want to drop anything just yet. I'll keep everyone informed as things develop.
What a crazy political day in Danbury.
