First selectman race neck-and-neck in New Canaan
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Republican candidate Kevin Moynihan edged Democrat Kit Devereaux by just 33 votes -- but that total didn't include absentee ballots in the race for first selectman in New Canaan.
It could take some time before a final tally is available.
Moynihan had beaten incumbent Robert E. Mallozzi in a July caucus. He was previously a New Canaan Town Council member for four years. Before that, he was a member of the Republican Town Committee and former town treasurer.
During the campaign, he touted his personal and professional experience, saying he is the most qualified person for the job.
He said he was focused on improving parking spaces at the town's Metro-North station, expanding natural gas, improving cellphone service in the town and creating a transparent government.
