Voters elected five women mayor in Torrington, Derby, Norwich, New Haven and New Britain.

In New Britain, the mayor-elect is not only a woman, she’s just 26-years-old. Erin Stewart has leadership in her blood. Her father, Timothy, was New Britain’s mayor for eight years.

“I’m just going after my dreams and I hope that I can inspire a lot of younger women to be involved in politics,” Stewart said. Stewart is set to be inaugurated next Wednesday.
