Complete election results

The election comes at a time of several hot button issues in the city.

Stamford has been growing so fast, causing overcrowding, traffic and parking issues.

Mayor Martin says he understands those concerns, but will not close the door on development because it's too important for the future of the city.

Martin says his team has been working hard to spear the city in a better direction.

The Democrats also kept a majority on the board of education, board of finance, and several seats on the board of representatives.
