After falling short two years ago, Republican Rich Dziekan scored a decisive victory Tuesday over two-term Democratic incumbent Mayor Anita Dugatto.
Dziekan, a retired Hamden police officer, beat Dugatto by an unofficial vote count of 1,802 to 1,295.
That’s a remarkable turnaround from 2015, when Dziekan lost to Dugatto by 112 votes.

Did you vote today?
You have until 8 p.m.
We have reporters in Ansonia, Derby and Seymour. We’re linking to the Shelton Herald for Shelton race results.
We’ll post results on our Facebook page, and then publish in-depth wrap-up stories here on ValleyIndy.org.
At least, that’s our plan.
Elections are unpredictable. Close races could result in long wait times.
Sit back, relax, and thanks for your support!

Two-term incumbent Derby Mayor Anita Dugatto will face challenger Rich Dziekan in the municipal election scheduled for Nov. 7.
It’s a rematch of the 2015 contest, which saw Dugatto best Dziekan by 112 votes.
Dugatto is running on the Democratic line. She earned her spot at the top of the ticket by defeating Carmen DiCenso by 30 votes in a Democratic primary last month.

Election Day is Tuesday (Nov. 7) so it makes sense that campaign-related letters to the editor are among our most-read stories.
By the way, The Valley Indy published 23 letters to the editor regarding the election since Oct. 31.
We’re proud to be a sounding board for the lower Naugatuck Valley, and we’re proud to have displayed your letters alongside our bylined content on the front page of ValleyIndy.org.

Saying he has turned a stagnant city dotted with empty buildings into a “busy metropolis,” Ansonia Mayor David Cassetti closed a 90-minute presentation Wednesday by vowing “the best is yet to come.”
But he said his annual “State of the City” address had nothing to do with the local elections scheduled for Tuesday.

The woman behind plans to open a Shelton speakeasy/burlesque club asked residents to reserve judgment after rumors about the business prompted widespread concerns.
“It’s not going to be a strip club. It’s not going to be a gentlemen’s club,” Randi Lee England said. “It’s a burlesque club.”
