DML Message Congratulates Local Candidates on their Victories

DML Message congratulates Aftab Pureval, Leon Stavrinakis, and Matt Meyer for their victories Wednesday, and are excited that these candidates are helping bring real change to the people and places that they now serve.

Political newcomer Pureval was elected to the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts. “The man with the duck ads” toppled Traci Winkler, “one of the best-known names in Hamilton County politics” according to WCPO.

Stavrinakis handily won his race, receiving 61% of the vote in a South Carolinian seat he has held since 2006. Stavrinakis knows the city of Charleston well, and it is why he is known as one of Charleston’s “best local legislators.

Meyer doubled the vote of incumbent Mark Blake to become Delaware’s New Castle County Executive in a campaign where he promised to change the culture of corruption inside the state’s largest municipal government.
