Democrats seem to have finally come up with a challenger for Mayor Ryan Bingham; local attorney Samuel Slaiby.
Bingham was elected in 2005 as one of the youngest mayors in the country. He easily won re-election in 2007.
A recent charter change means that the mayoral candidates are now seeking a four-year term instead of a two-year term.
Martin vs. Pavia in Stamford
Stamford Democrats chose David Martin to succeed outgoing mayor Dan Malloy. Martin is a longtime president of the Board of Representatives. Republicans endorsed Michael Pavia, a former member of the Board of Representatives, on Tuesday. Look for Stamford to be one of the most watched races this year.
