Former police chief Harry Rilling has won the Norwalk Democratic party's nomination to run for mayor.
Rilling received 1,703 votes to defeat former town clerk Andy Garfunkel, Common Councilman Matt Miklave and District D Democrat Vinny Mangiacopra. Rilling garnered 51.22% of the total vote, according Norwalk's Democratic registrar of voters.
Those numbers tallied 3,325 total ballots cast in Norwalk -- roughly 21% of all the city's registered Democrats.
Rilling will vie for the city's top executive office against incumbent Republican mayor Richard Moccia. Moccia, mayor since 2005, was re-elected in 2007, 2009 and 2011.
Mangiacopra finished second with 781 votes; Miklave finished third with 501 votes; and Garfunkel finished fourth with 340 votes.
Rilling will oppose Moccia in the general election Nov. 5.
