Newcomer eyes council seat in 1st District
A Democratic newcomer is eyeing a possible City Council run in the 1st District.
Steve Jeffries, a human resources recruiter, said he is interested in seeking election this fall to one of the two council seats representing northeastern Bristol.
The incumbent Democrat in the district, Kevin Fuller, is running for a third term after giving up his mayoral bid this week. First-term Republican city Councilor Eric Carlson hasn't said whether he'll seek reelection there.
Jeffries has a political science degree from Central Connecticut State University and a master's in human resource management from Capella University. He's working on a doctorate there, too.
Jeffries is also a U.S. Army Reserve veteran.
