From Tara O’Neill, CT Post:
For the third time in a little more than two years, Mayor Joe Ganim has appointed a new director for his second chance office.
Earl Bloodworth has been chosen to oversee the Mayor’s Initiative for Reentry Affairs for Bridgeport.
No stranger to this type of work, Bloodworth comes from New Haven’s Warren Kimbro Reentry Project, where he worked as the program manager to reduce recidivism in New Haven.
“With a background in social justice and community organizing, I bring a vast skill set and fresh perspective to the role,” Bloodworth said in a prepared statement. “I look forward to working with Mayor Ganim to fulfill the program’s mission to the returning citizens of Bridgeport.”
Bloodworth’s annual salary will be $62,424, according to Rowena White, the mayor’s director of communications.
