Incumbent-less race in Stamford nears end

STAMFORD - For the first time in 14 years, the mayoral race in Stamford does not involve an incumbent after Democrat Dan Malloy decided not to seek re-election.

Republican Mike Pavia and his supporters were out in force Tuesday making a final pitch to voters, hoping the night will end in victory. Pavia owns a real estate managing and construction business in Stamford, but has also served as the city's Public Works commissioner, a police commissioner and on the Board of Representatives.

David Martin has also had a busy day of last-minute campaigning. Martin, a Democrat, has served on the city's Board of Representatives for 26 years. He was the first candidate in Stamford to formally announce his plans to run for mayor back in February.
