Paging George Lucas.
Black Rocker Chadwick Ciocci, a former Republican town council majority leader in Trumbull, is backing petitioning candidate Lamond Daniels for mayor, calling him the “Luke Skywalker of this race.”
In a piece of political opera, see video above, Ciocci frames Mayor Joe Ganim “the emperor” and John Gomes “Darth Vader” to Daniels’ Luke Skywalker. Ciocci characterizes Ganim and Gomes ballot cheaters. “One just outcheated the other.”
And, so it goes in this Star Wars campaign space odyssey that’s grabbed national attention with a few more sequels to come. And this saga isn’t even a fictional universe.
