NORWICH In less than one month, elections will be held throughout the county, and among the choices on the ballot this year, Norwich City residents will see three candidates for the three open alderman positions in the city.
The City of Norwich Common Council could see two new faces this year as positions in the first and third ward open up. Current First Ward Alderman A. Anthony Abraham and Third Ward Alderwoman Suzanne Williams will not seek re-election. Attempting to fill the positions are Republican candidates Bob Carey and John Deierlein.
Carey, an employee at Mang Insurance, has lived in Norwich with his wife and three children since 1998. I always wanted to get involved with local government, and now that my children are off to college, I felt that it was the time to get involved, Carey said.
