Note send this morning from Mayor Art Ward to state lawmakers trying to help the Press and 12 other Central Connecticut papers stay in business:
As Mayor of the City of Bristol, home of the Bristol Press, I want to extend our gratitude to you and the New Britain legislative delegation for pro-actively pursuing a potential means of retention of both the Bristol Press and the New Britain Herald.
This office has also been in contact with the office of Congressman John Larson with regard to this issue and is committed to assisting you in resolving this matter in the best interests of the media and the cities of Bristol and New Britain.
