Norwalk Democrats stood together on Tuesday in front of Family Diner in a show of unity for their efforts to bring about change to the city.
Standing with Democratic candidates past and present, State Senator Bob Duff began the event. “We are one party speaking with one voice for a better Norwalk,” Duff was quoted saying in a release from Rilling's campaign office.
Former Mayor Bill Collins reaffirmed the importance of Democrats working together.
“You have a better chance of winning and of making a difference when you have a party pulling together,” Collins said in the release.
Democratic mayoral candidate Harry Rilling spoke to the difference that the party could make. “We’re going to make a big change in Norwalk and bring a new type of government,” he said. “We are going to represent all the people of Norwalk.”
Former Democratic mayoral candidate Vinny Mangiacopra showed his support for Rilling and the entire Democratic slate.
“In what has been a historic election year, Harry Rilling has proved that he is the man to move Norwalk forward,” Mangiacopra said in the release. “Harry has proved that he will be a uniting figure on the behalf of progress for our city. I am proud to support Harry to be our next Mayor as well as the dynamic ticket of Democratic Council and Board of Education candidates.”
