It’s not the job she wanted, but former Republican mayoral candidate Mary Alford has snagged a position at City Hall.
Mayor Art Ward, who defeated Alford last fall, nominated her to serve on the city’s Transportation Commission until 2012.
The move got the unanimous backing of the City Council.
Transportation commissioners serve without pay “to promote a safe, efficient, and sustainable public transportation system” in Bristol.The panel consists of seven members, including the city planner, a regional planner, a senior citizen, a city councilor and three residents.
