STAMFORD - Stamford mayoral candidate Mike Fedele hopes there will be much to celebrate after the votes are counted this evening.

Fedele cast his vote Tuesday morning at Scofield Middle School. He also made several stops throughout the day at polling locations across the city.

The candidate is touting his 18 years of diverse government experience as the factor that makes him most qualified to be mayor. He served on the city's Board of Representatives, spent 10 years in the state House of Representatives and served four years as the state's lieutenant governor.

Fedele also developed a successful business.

He says this has been a good campaign but now it comes down to who gets out the vote. Fedele also picked up the Independent endorsement in this race, meaning his name appeared on the ballot twice today.

Former Gov. Jodi Rell and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie also put their support behind Fedele.
