Upon his Primary victory Tuesday evening over challenger and fellow Democrat Gary DePalma, Jack Stacey issued the following statement:
"I am so thankful to my supporters and everyone who voted for me. I am also proud to welcome my fellow Democrats from the DePalma team who did an outstanding job in the Second, Third, and Fifth districts, and on the Board of Ed."
"Gary was a true gentleman this evening, he came to our headquarters, shook my hand, contributed to our campaign, and vowed that all of his supporters will put up Jack Stacey signs this week. Our Democratic team is now nothing but the best."
"With my platform of smart economic development, more efficient town management, and improved quality of life for all residents, I know that the people of East Haven will 'back Jack' like Democrats did tonight. The most important thing right now is that we come together as a party, get our message out, and beat the Republican incumbent on November 5th. We can and we will make East Haven better, together. "
