All Members of North Branford Town Council Return to Office

Though Al Rose unseated Michael Doody as deputy mayor, all of the incumbents were re-elected in yesterday's election, while three new faces join the Board of Ed.

Bryon Wentworth, registrar of voters, reported that 2,460 residents turned out to the polls for North Branford 2011 municipal elections. This accounted for 28.1 percent of registered voters, down about four percent from 2009 when 2,904 voted (32.3 percent).

In , nine of the 12 candidates on the Town Council ballot were elected to a seat with every incumbent returning.

"I'm glad everyone made it back because we're in the middle of a lot of stuff so we'll be able to keep moving forward," said Al Rose, who was voted deputy mayor. "I'm humbled to have ended up deputy mayor."

Anthony Candelora was re-elected for his second term as mayor.

"I am honored to be mayor another term," said Candelora. "I would like to thank all the residents and I am very proud to serve with the same council. We will have great continuity and look forward to rolling up my sleeves and get to work on the budget taxes and working with the BOE."

Ashley Clow Joiner and William DellaCamera, who both ran and lost in the 2009 elections, along with newcomer Nick Demos were not elected. All three are democrats.

With three open seats and three candidates running for the Board of Education, the trio of Lou Paternoster (R), Anthony Ferraiolo (D) and Ed Corradino (D) will all join the BOE. Stephen Levine (D) and Jack Krasko (R) return as Town Constables.
