Gatsas and Arnold are among the estimated 50 candidates seeking to win or hang onto seats on the boards of aldermen and school board. Voters will also be deciding the winner of the race for welfare commissioner and whether to approve the nine charter revisions proposed by the Charter Commission.
Normand said he hopes that turnout surpasses expectations. "I encourage everybody to come out and vote. The weather's supposed to be nice," he said, adding, "These municipal elections, this is where voters have a voice in choosing the candidate that represents them on those issues every day that they face, more so than in a federal race."
"We've done everything we have in past elections, and hopefully voters will have the opportunity to voice their opinion," Gatsas said. "I'd just ask them to go out and vote."
