New Mayor Elected in Bridgeport

Posted: Updated:

On Tuesday, voters cast their ballots in Bridgeport.

Current mayor Jim Christie was not eligible to run for another term as mayor, so his seat was up for grabs.

Voters also elected three city council members. Election officials characterized Tuesday's turnout in Bridgeport as steady.

"When I was down there, it was quite steady, there was a steady stream of people coming in and out. We were hoping for 25 to 30 percent turnout and we're still hoping to get that today,"said mayor-elect Mario Blount.

The results were as follows:

MAYOR: Mario Blount 861; Mike Fresa- 399; Charles Lindsey- 318.

CITY COUNCIL (top three): Diana Cole Marra - 969; John Wilson, Sr. - 775; Robert Greer - 812; Lowell "L.J." Maxey - 741; David Claprood- 304.
