ZOPPO-SASSU LOOKS AHEAD TO TUESDAY
With the municipal election four days away, Ellen Zoppo-Sassu issued a statement Friday thanking residents and encouraging voters to come to the polls on Tuesday, Nov, 7.
“Since we started the campaign in June, we have knocked on 4,127 doors and met hundreds of residents who had opinions and serious concerns on many issues affecting the city. One thing is clear - people are passionate about where they live, frustrated over the distractions, and are ready to roll up their sleeves and participate however they can to help get things moving.”
“We know that Bristol has the potential to be a vibrant community and what is needed are elected officials who listen to the community, have a respectful discussion of the issues, and follow through to get things done,” Zoppo-Sassu said. “There is a lot of work to do to repair the city’s perception and reputation across the state. We need to treat all taxpayers, city employees, and visitors with respect and dignity. We need to work every day to ensure that government is transparent and accountable. It’s time to move past the city’s current sordid chapter and get to work on the important issues and fiscal priorities.”
I feel strongly that we have run a strong campaign and I think that based on public response to our issue oriented campaign, the financial support from donors, and people who have been working at Headquarters every night, that we are positioned to win on Election Day. I am looking forward to working with the council candidates who are successful on Tuesday, and I promise that regardless of Republican or Democratic affiliation, all council members will have a seat at the table and be encouraged to participate on committees where they can be the most effective at representing both their districts and the city as a whole.”
On Tuesday, I promise that I will bring positive change to Bristol government of which the citizens will be proud, and I ask for your support.
