Middletown Election Results: M-town is Blue, Red Rosa still Creepy

Middletown Ct Election 2014 Results: 10:00 pm UPDATE: Some districts in Middletown still have not reported numbers. Middletown High district 3 & 6 included. Witnesses confirm democrats rounded up folks at the soup kitchen & homeless in the north end today promising a hot meal & took them to the polls in a last effort push. Reports that over 500 Wesleyan students, most registering as democrats, were added as new voters in the final days before the election. Local Democrats & the Malloy campaign bused students to the polls from campus today. No word if meals were purchased for students by Democrats, as was done in the last cycle. Currently, the change to a 4 year term for mayor & common council as part of Middletown's Charter is looking likely based on reporting districts. Foley & Malloy are too close to call in Middletown at this time. The unofficial turnout hovers at 59% we are hearing from early estimates.

11:35 pm UPDATE: Szynkowicz conceded to Serra at 8:57 pm and offered her congratulations on his victory in person at City Hall. Fernandez conceded to Lesser at 10 pm & also congratulated him in the Council Chambers where Lesser watched votes being tabulated. Earlier Roberts conceded to incumbent Doyle. At this time final votes have not been tabulated from all districts. Bartolomeo remains in a slight lead over Suzio at this hour, however neither has conceded. Absentee ballots are also still being counted. No numbers yet on previously unreported districts.


12:00 am: UPDATE: At Council Chambers the tabulation scene was still chaotic well after 11:00 pm. The numbers from the registrars are being projected on the smallest screen available seemed all the more confusing with the excel spread sheet having missing cell formulas delaying the effort. The process seems antiquated. Vote counting is done publicly to be transparent; but the room filled with politicos & reporters gabbing makes it a long event. Finally all the numbers are in; we defer to the spread offered by the Courant below. 

2:00 am: UPDATE: No official results, available at the link embedded, have been filed with the Secretary of State for Middletown. Below are unofficial results published by the Hartford Courant. At 1:39 am Gov. Malloy declared himself the victor based on his campaign leaders' projections. 

Conclusions: 
1. Middletown might be D 3 to 1 but after Red Rosa visited in person last week at the Westfield forum, it was James Brown who stole our hearts proving M-town finds Delauro's antics creepy.  So far (based on early results), the only conservative to go the distance locally, & that he did! We'll done Mr. Brown.  

2.  In all other races the D's trumped the R's. Rumors of shenanigans are rampant. Candidates leaning over the screens of vote counters seems wrong.It was reported by a few that there was a party affiliated wearing a Malloy tee shirt assisting same day registrants in the lobby of City Hall earlier in the day causing moderators to repeatedly ask the person to remove such or vacate the area, which he refuses. Republican sign holders being unfairly questioned well outside the 75 ft radius from the polls, while the D's appeared to have carte blanche. D's Illegally posted signs on the grounds of the senior center, a public housing authority property. One would have hoped that with such a majority, the D's would take their victory with dignity,but hey, this is Middletown!
In reality, the locally running R's should be extremely proud- they have come closer than any others in recent past to the career politicians they challenged & exposed many truths about the incumbents in the process.

3.  D's will use free goodies for votes. Not quite legal, but it works.

4. How does Roberts get no votes? Did he not vote for himself!!? Something is up here. Seriously, this can't be true. And no write-ins reported? Call Councilman Bauer now!

5. The mayor's AIDE will drop Mayor Drew off places so he can campaign on the public dime all day, but keep the mayor mobile parked at City Hall like he's doing work.

6. No one has found any bags of uncounted absentee ballots yet giving a Malloy victory in Middletown, but $5 says it could still happen in Hartford ...
