McMichael beat Robert Nelson and Steve Poiry with 52% of the votes Tuesday. He currently represents the 5th district on City Council.

McMichael said New Haven needs a new direction, leadership, and focus – and that this is the right time.

Current Mayor Terry McDonald has said he will not seek re-election. There wasn’t a Democrat in the May Primary. Democratic and Independent candidates can still apply for the November election.
