BRISTOL – We would like to thank Democratic Candidate for Mayor for the City of Bristol, Ellen Zoppo-Sassu for stopping by once again to join us on the State of the City with Mike Anthony. We extended an invitation to Mayor Cockayne to be a guest along with his Democratic challenger, but unfortunately, the Mayor declined our invitation. There was a lot of conversation regarding the $2.4 million deficit with the Bristol Board of Education. We discussed the large amounts of money spent on the increasing Special Education programs and why this program continues to grow here in Bristol. We also discussed the possible performing arts magnet school at the old Memorial Boulevard School and how it would be mostly funded by the State of Connecticut. The conversation included how her campaigning is going and she told us that she has raised more money as of today than she did in 2015 all together.
Remember to make your voice heard and get there and vote on November 7th. Join us each week for a full hour of conversation about what is going on in our City, Bristol, Connecticut.
