In his quest to regain the mayoralty, Joe Ganim also had a goal to secure more than 50 percent of the vote so no one could claim a spoiler role. He did that.
Unofficial results for mayor: Ganim 11,198; Mary-Jane Foster 6,029; Rick Torres 2,838; David Daniels 504; Charlie Coviello 72; Chris Taylor 61; Tony Barr 24. So Ganim more than doubled up the totals of his opponents combined. While finishing a distant third for mayor, Republican Torres also lost his City Council seat. Democrats Kate Bukovsky and Scott Burns will represent the 130th District on the council.
Roughly one-third of eligible voters participated in the general election.
