Mayor Ben Dover was very surprised when told one of the sitting city council members planned to oppose him in the November elections. Contacted last evening on the Mediterranean Island of Sardinia, where he and his secretaries are on a business trip, he talked to CHANNEL 1 NEWS via Skype during a break in what was said to be a very important meeting.
"I hope Councilman Doolittle is fooling around again, he likes to fool around you know." Dover said with a face getting redder by the minute. "He needs to stick to what he does best and that's sniffing other peoples morning breath!"
The connection was lost before the Mayor could be told the field of candidates had grown. Two more Bridgeportians have tossed their hat into the ring bringing the total of challengers to three.
