Candidates line up for Bridgeport primary

(08/04/03) BRIDGEPORT - The end of the Joe Ganim era in Bridgeport is near, as candidates lined up for a mayoral primary election that begins on September 9.

There could be as many as seven candidates in the Democratic primary and two more on the Republican ticket. The candidates have until 4 p.m. Wednesday to submit their signatures to qualify for the ballot.

Mayor John Fabrizi (D) won the Democratic Party endorsement, giving him the top spot on the ballot. State Representative Chris Caruso (D) will occupy the second spot, since he was the first of the primary candidates to return his petition. Max Medina will appear third, State Rep. Bob Keeley (D) will be the fourth entry, and City Councilman John Guman (D) will follow in the fifth spot. Neither Charles Coviello nor Carl Horton submitted signatures by noon Monday, but Coviello says he will submit his before Wednesday's deadline.

In order to qualify, each candidate must collect at least 1,462 signatures from registered party members.
