To the Editor:

I am writing to you to inquire about the article that was written with regards to a potential candidate to run for office of the mayor in the 2017 election. I strongly believe that Mayor Stewart has done a tremendous job during her tenure as mayor. I have seen extreme growth in the economic development of this city with new businesses, restaurants, and housing.

Not to mention Main Street USA; this was a huge success in New Britain during the ’90s. Mayor Stewart and the Parks & Recreation Department were able to bring this wonderful event back in 2015. During the summer months in the newly renovated Central Park, there was a variety of food trucks, vendors and live entertainment during the week. It brought a great feeling back to downtown.

As a former commissioner, I commend Mayor Stewart for the work that has been done to bring back a sense of pride to the city of New Britain.
