Foster May Stay In Race

Statement from Mary-Jane Foster to supporters:

I am overwhelmed by the response to my announcement yesterday and the subsequent news that the incumbent will not have a spot on the ballot. I have been persuaded to seriously reconsider going forward with my run as the mayoral candidate for honesty and change in the city of Bridgeport this November.

Since I did not officially withdraw from the election, my name remains on the ballot. I am talking with supporters and others about the path and the future of this wonderful city. I will weigh my options and soon make a careful and thoughtful decision.



  1. Rumor Mill: I wonder what Black Rock’s David Walker thinks of recent events. He could unite both parties and maybe bring PAC money to the contest. Here’s the best part: when he’s tapped for a GOP nod in 2016, he’d leave Bridgeport in the hands of Rick Torres, the head of Bridgeport’s City Council! Then, he’d have a fantastic story to tell his new audience.
    I write from the perspective of a local strategist with a local vision.

  2. Finch and Stafstrom lost the primary to a convicted felon, convicted for felonious abuse of the mayor’s office. It’s either Foster or Torres this November. Finch should learn how and when to sit down. He’s about to go down in history, in a very negative way.

    1. With all due respect to Mary-Jane Foster, because she is a lovely lady, her numbers in the primaries do not show she is a viable candidate. There is a lot of anti-Ganim vote out there, if Mary-Jane stays in she splits that vote. Much like Finch, she lost against Joe. And quite frankly, I don’t understand the strategy of if Finch is in I am out, or if Finch is out I am in, you’re either in it to win it or you drop out. I would be so proud of the city and the voters if it were indeed a race between Foster and Torres. What a statement about the integrity of our city to support two candidates with integrity, vision, and the ability to roll up their sleeves and get the job done.
