Democratic Candidate Alfonso Davis released the following statement after the party made its designation:

"I would like to congratulate Mr. Nicoletti on receiving the democratic designation from the party. While the Democratic Committee votes to provide democratic representation for the party, it is but a microcosm of the great people of this city. The people should ultimately decide who they want to represent the democratic party in November. With that being said I look forward to a well spirited primary in September."
