Public Forum For Better Government

Published on March 9, 2013 from

On Saturday, March 16th, Bridgeport residents are invited to attend a public forum to address their state representatives and senators regarding HB5724, a proposed bill which would close a loophole in the Connecticut State Statutes that currently allows Bridgeport employees, and city employees in other municipalities, to hold elected positions in their representative assemblies.

The forum is being held on Saturday, March 16th on the first floor of the main branch of the Bridgeport Public Library, 925 Broad St. beginning at 2PM.

Passage of this bill, co‐sponsored by Bridgeport State Representatives Jack Hennessy and Auden Grogins, will eliminate the clear conflicts of interest that currently allows city council members to vote on public policies that affect their personal lives. This bill should be embraced by all who believe in good government.

The event is being sponsored by a city‐wide nonpartisan group:
Citizens Working for a Better Bridgeport.

The group can be contacted at:
