HOUSE DISTRICT 110: GODFREY WINS

November 7, 2018

DANBURY — State Rep. Bob Godfrey easily won re-election to the 110th District of the state House of Representatives on Tuesday night.

The long-time Democratic leader is the Deputy Speaker Pro Tempore and was first elected 30 years ago in 1988.

Godfrey held a 1,300-vote lead shortly after 9 p.m. at press time over Republican Erin Domenech, who did not actively campaign for the seat, on his votes to approve capital funding for local public schools and against Republican-proposed cuts to the state spending.

The race, or lack thereof, was a striking contrast to Godfrey’s heated 2016 campaign against Republican Emanuela Palmares for the Danbury district. Godfrey ultimately secured 58 percent of the vote and Palmares, who had said she would challenge him again, has since been appointed to the Danbury school board.
