A quick municipal roundup, stretching back to the beginning of the month:
- Newington’s mayor Jeff Wright (R) kicked off his re-election bid in early June. Wright shook up Newington by leading a slate of Republicans to a majority on the town council. Newington has been heavily Democratic for decades.
- Guilford’s First Selectman Carl A. Balestracci is retiring, and a lively race to succeed him is off and running.
- Republicans in Brookfield endorsed a slate. William Tinsley, a member of the finance board, will run for first selectman.
- Rep. Tim O’Brien is still considering a run for mayor in New Britain.
