Yesterday at City Hall, members of the Danbury Democratic Town Committee held their caucus and endorsed their pick of candidates for this November's election.
Gary Goncalves will lead the top of the ticket as candidate for mayor while Lori Kaback takes a shot at becoming Town Clerk for a third term. Rounding up the ticket is Eileen Coladarci who hopes that three time is a charm as she runs again for the position of City Clerk. The party also nominated candidates for all the common council wards seats as well as Common Council at large, Constable, Zoning Commission, and Board of Education.
After the caucus, I caught up with Democratic Town Committee Joe DaSilva Jr. to get his comments regarding the slate.
While I'll update this post with a listing of all the candidates, I wanted to share with everyone video footage from last night's caucus from City Hall.
