Dempsey fails to submit petition for Council primary

Democrats in District 5 will not have a primary as John Dempsey failed to turn in his petition on time.

Dempsey, who had pulled papers two weeks ago to challenge Greg Cann for the 5th District Town Council nomination in the Oct. 13 special election, did not turn in his petition by the 4 p.m. Friday deadline, according to Democratic Registrar of Voters Rick Marcone. This means there will be no primaries for Town Council seats on Aug. 18.

Cann was nominated by the Stratford Democratic Town Committee on June 28. Stratford’s Republican Town Committee chose James Duffy to be the GOP’s candidate in the District 5 race.
