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.
