City Councilman Anthony Paoletto reports on his Facebook page the passing of Barbara Powell who served on the Democratic Town Committee for decades. See here.
It is with a heavy heart and with great sadness that I announce the passing of Barbara Powell. Barbara was a long time resident of Bridgeport and the 138th District. She was very active for many years, always giving back to her community. She served the Democratic Town Committee for 30+ years–one of the longest serving Town Committee members in Bridgeport’s history. The entire Powell Family has been a pillar in the community for decades. Barbara became part of my family. She will forever be missed in our family, our community, and all of our hearts! Prayers to her entire family in this tough time.
