The New Haven Independent brings us this possible blockbuster: a matchup between John DeStefano and Bill Dyson, a popular former state representative.
Dyson’s possible candidacy has sparked interest because he has 16 winning elections behind him, deep local ties among constituencies he has helped in town, and a statewide reputation on issues like prison overcrowding and reentry of ex-offenders. No other potential challenger to DeStefano has emerged this year with those credentials despite local controversies over taxes and cops and schools.
Read Paul Bass’s entire article, it’s good stuff.
One interesting piece from the article is that Dyson may decide to challenge DeStefano as an independent. That would make November a lot more interesting than usual for the Elm City.
