NORWALK, Conn. – The chair of Norwalk's Democratic Town Committee has resigned three months after being elected for a second term in his post.
Marc Bradley said in a letter to the committee that as of Tuesday he is no longer a resident of Norwalk. He is thus ineligible to be on the committee, by law and Democratic Party rules.
Vice Chair Brenda Penn-Williams will act as interim chair until a special Democratic Town Committee meeting can be held to elect a replacement. Committee member Vinny Mangiacopra said that would happen before the end of next week.
"With the information still being fresh from Marc's resignation, the party will be discussing our options the next few days on who is best to lead us going forward," Mangiacopra said in an email.
Bradley's emailed resignation said, "I write this letter with some sadness, but also with a great appreciation for all of the relationships that I have made and the successes that we have shared over the past few years. It has always been my hope to make Norwalk a better city and I feel fortunate to have worked with so many of you to do exactly that.
"The decision to leave Norwalk was not an easy one. But, it is the right decision for my family right now. ... Our party is on the right side of the issues facing Norwalk. I am sorry that I will not be with you to make this next stand, but I look forward to reading about our city's continued success and our party's gains in this coming election, and beyond."
