Norwalkers explain who they're voting for and why

Norwalk, CT | Added on September 06, 2013 At 03:30 PM

By the end of the night Sept. 10, the Norwalk Democratic party will have its candidate for the city's top office.

After campaigning against each other and current incumbent Mayor Richard Moccia since January, former town clerk Andy Garfunkel, former police chief Harry Rilling, Common Councilman Matt Miklave and District D Democratic chairman Vinny Mangiacopra will square off on Tuesday's primary election ballot.

Throughout the summer, the Democratic candidates have voiced their platforms and ideas at multiple forums, debates and public events.  In addition to our coverage of the four candidates' individual campaigns, we gathered faces in the Norwalk community -- people who are known supporters of each candidate - and asked them why they're supporting their candidate.

We spoke to the following people.  Click each of the links to view the full video:
