Lowell Weicker, the greatest Connecticut governor for Bridgeport, has endorsed Mary-Jane Foster for mayor. There should be a life-sized statue of this man in Bridgeport. From Foster:
Political powerhouse Lowell P. Weicker, Jr. endorsed Mary-Jane Foster for mayor of Bridgeport today. Weicker, a party maverick widely respected for his independence and straight talk, was an active proponent of Connecticut’s largest city during his tenure as governor of Connecticut in the early 1990s. He is credited with the visionary relocation of Housatonic Community College to downtown Bridgeport as well as opening a state police barracks and a Southwestern Connecticut governor’s office in downtown.
“Bridgeport has every reason to be the great city of Connecticut,” stated Weicker. “That said, it needs visionary leadership. Independent-minded smarts is what Mary-Jane Foster brings to the table. Politics no longer carries the day. Turning dreams into reality is the city’s future. That is Mary-Jane’s commitment.”
“Lowell Weicker is legendary for his commitment to Bridgeport, for his political courage for calling it like he sees it and for challenging leadership that has abused its power,” shared Foster. “His endorsement speaks volumes about the importance of this race and what is at stake. Bridgeport cannot take another four years of a failed Finch administration. As mayor, I intend to lead with the same courage, integrity, and commitment that Governor Weicker has demonstrated throughout his storied career.”
