NORWICH – Mid-term elections will be held on Tuesday and for residents in the City of Norwich, those elections will include a race to determine who will be the mayor of Norwich. Three candidates are vying for the position. Republican Joseph Maiurano, who was appointed to the position after Mayor Robert C. Rapheal passed away in May, will be running against Democrat Michael Carnrike and independent Vince Anthony.
Each candidate says they want to see Norwich move forward, but they have different ideas about how to go about it.
According to Maiurano, “The city is doing everything possible to move things forward. We’re planning and anticipating things for the future.” Maiurano said the city has planted many seeds, and soon they will begin to grow. He pointed to positive steps that have occurred in the city, such as the number of newly-occupied storefronts on Broad Street, and the council’s work to clean up the blighted buildings in the city. Maiurano encourages everyone to shop locally to support the new businesses.
