Press release from Mayor Art Ward, hot off the presses:
Mayor Arthur J. Ward announced today that he is seeking names of citizens to fill positions on the City’s boards and commissions. “This administration is committed to bringing new ideas and perspectives to the many boards and commissions which oversee the vast array of functions that are needed to run a city of 60,000 residents,” said Ward.
Ward continued, “We know there are many bright, committed men, women and youth in Bristol who have a great deal to contribute to the betterment of our City. Bristol is rich in diversity, but that needs to be reflected more in the makeup of our boards and commissions for a fair representation of Bristol’s needs.”
The Mayor is urging residents to become involved, now. Ward stated, “This is the time to become involved. There is so much potential to rejuvenate Bristol and make it a destination, not a pass through.”
If you are interested in applying for a position, you are asked to submit a letter of intent stating your reasons for applying and any qualifications or experience you feel would be of assistance to this board or commission. At this time, there are openings on the following boards and commissions: Commission for Persons with Disabilities, Bristol Parking Authority, Bristol Transportation Commission, Mayor’s Task Force on Energy Consumption and the Library Board. Please direct your correspondence to Office of the Mayor, 111 North Main Street, Bristol, CT 06010, Attention: Board and Commission Appointments.
