The candidates endorsed by the Network for Public Education and the Connecticut Post won a stunning upset victory over the Democratic machine candidates in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

This is another loss for the corporate reformers who tried to abolish the elected board and give control to the mayor.

“The challenger slate won by a two to one margin over the party’s endorsed slate, easily winning in all districts, in unofficial and incomplete results.

Andre Baker Jr, Howard Gardner and Dave Hennessey received 3,409 votes, 3,284 votes and 3,308 votes, respectively.”

If the challengers prevail in the November election, Superintendent Paul,Vallas may be out. That is, if he survives a court challenge over his lack of credentials to serve.
