That thing about Waterbury...

After the silliness of 2005, who didn't see this coming in Waterbury.

Oh, this should be very interesting. Since Mike Jarjura won in 2005 as a write-in candidate, many pundits forcasted that Waterbury is basically up for grabs. TOday, we should hear that Democrat Paul Vance in throwing his hat into the race while Republicans State Rep. Selim Noujaim (74th) and State Rep. Anthony J. D'Amelio (71st) might jump into the circus also.

There are other people thinking about the race but since it's still pretty early in the campaign season so we'll have to wait and see what happens. If anything, it's REALLY rare to have a Republican primary as they usually get things worked out to avoid things like that while Democrats usually shed blood before a general election.

The Brass City is one of three cities to keep an eye on this year. You'll have to wait a bit until I comment about the other two (it's only January 2nd).
