State Senator Marilyn Moore on Feb 18 will host her first fundraising meet and greet as a candidate for mayor at the Metric Bar and Grill, 39 Cannon Street Downtown. The event will take place from 5 to 8 PM, with a $25 suggested donation.
“We all agree I am the person to reset and restore Bridgeport,” she said in a prepared statement. “If not now, when? And if not me, who else has successfully worked independently of the systems that oppress us?”
Moore, 70, announcement her candidacy on January 21. She was elected to the State Senate in 2014 defeating incumbent Democrat Anthony Musto in a primary on her way to a general election win. She has handily won reelection twice.
“This will be a people’s campaign for integrity and transparency in our city government,” she said. “That’s what I believe in, that’s what I’m going to run on, and that’s what I’m promising as mayor. I have a vision for our city that goes far beyond anything that’s ever been done before. I believe that government should work for all people–not just the few at the top–and that the voices of our city’s most vulnerable populations need to be heard. That’s why I will work to reset, reform, and restore the way Bridgeport does government.”
