Former Town Council District 7 candidate Louis Bevilacqua will remain a former candidate.
Bevilacqua, a democrat, sent an email Friday trying to nullify his resignation but Trumbull Democratic Town Committee Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo said that was impossible.
"There's a process to go through," she said. The DTC has not nominated a replacement.
Bevilacqua submitted a one-line resignation letter Aug. 27, stating, "Please be advised that I need to resign as a candidate for the Town Council District 7."
Bevilacqua had said, "the local Democratic committee decided to go in a different direction."
On Friday, he emailed Registrar Sandy Mangiacapra.
"As previously stated in the media, I accept the nomination of the Democratic party. In light of the current political realities I have decided for the good of the party to remain on the ballot, contrary to to any other letter or document you may receive that I may have signed that may imply otherwise," Bevilacqua wrote.
He later said, "As far as I know, I'm still on the ballot. I'm not sure how it's going to work. We'll see how it works out going forward."
Meanwhile, two other democrats, incumbent Michael Rappa and Thomas Ragonese, have dropped off the slate. John Lawlor replaces Rappa and Jerri Fahy Marrocco of Louis Street replaces Ragonese.
The other democrat nominated for District 7 is Tom Whitmoyer. Former councilman Charley Pitcher is a petition candidate.
