The political action committee Better Bridgeport, formerly known as Citizens Working For a Better Bridgeport, chaired by Jeanine Oburchay is inviting all potential candidates for City Council and Board of Education to fill out a questionnaire and return it by June 30. Candidates should E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and specify whether you need the school board or council questionnaire, according to committee member John Marshall Lee.
More from Lee:
Better Bridgeport will review each questionnaire received by June 30 and invite selected candidates to a follow-up interview in mid-July. Endorsements of candidates in the primaries and in the general election may be issued by the group. Endorsements will be announced in August via official press releases and may come with some financial and field support to endorsed candidates. Individuals wishing to advance the cause of better governance in the City may donate to Better Bridgeport online at www.betterbpt.com. We are a thrifty group. Each dollar you donate will advance the cause of better governance in Bridgeport.
In August Better Bridgeport expects to co-sponsor with other civic-minded groups, public forums to showcase endorsed candidates and to allow citizens to ask questions and be heard. In addition John Marshall Lee will be holding informational sessions on City financial operations that “good governance” candidates are welcome to attend. The first one to be held is on Monday, June 26, 2017 at 5:30 PM. For more details on the Monday meeting, please call 203-259-9642.
