The Norwalk Democratic Town Committee nominated 25 members to appear on the November ballots Tuesday night, even if the top of the ticket remains unresolved.
After over four hours of debate and a voting deadlock, the Democratic party resigned itself to forego nominating a mayoral candidate, instead opting to hold a primary election Sept. 10.
However, a number of nominees for the Board of Education, Common Council and other positions were named with much less complication.
Shirley Mosby, Haroldo Williams and Sherelle Harris were all chosen by majority vote to appear on the ticket as at-large candidates for the Board of Education. The Democrats' fourth representative, current board member Heidi Keyes, was chosen only after a vote off.
Keyes and Olivia Dardy both received majority votes but were tied after the initial tally. The vote off -- in which the 35 DTC members could cast one vote for either Dardy, Keyes or Regina Krummel -- resulted in Keyes winning by a count of 20-12 over Dardy.
For the Common Council, the Democrats chose current board member David Watts and Eloisa Melendez to run for District A; Phaedrel Bowman and Travis Simms to run for District B; John Kydes and John Hauter in District C; Nick Sacchinelli and Marilyn Robinson for District D; and Kate Tepper and current board member John Igneri for District E.
Five nominees were named for at-large Common Council representation: Sharon Stewart, Deidra Davis, Chrisley Ceme and current Councilman Warren Pena.
Dora Witherspoon was endorsed to run against Republican incumbent Rick McQuaid for Town Clerk.
Anna Duleep, who currently sits on the Common Council, will instead run for Sheriff in November.
David Jaeger was endorsed for City Treasurer.
Mark Pinzon and Pete Marks were nominated as town selectmen.
Brenda Penn-Williams, Samuel Disraelly, Raymond Dunlap and George LaMonica were all endorsed as constables.
The Republican Town Committee will hold its own nomination convention on Monday, July 22 at 7 p.m. at the Norwalk Inn & Conference Center.
