To the Editor:
I am pleased to write this letter of support for Ellen Zoppo-Sassu, Democratic candidates for mayor of our great city of Bristol.
I have known Ellen for many years. From a young age, she has been interested in government. During my last term as mayor, Ellen served on the City Council. When I later returned to the council, I served with Ellen again. No matter what committee, project, or issue, Ellen would research thoroughly and make a reasoned decision as to what she felt was in Bristol’s best interest.
In addition to her political service, Ellen has been involved in numerous community activities and organizations. Her tremendous energy and great community service have been an asset to our city.
Throughout the years, Ellen has been a devoted daughter to her parents and, with her husband, has raised three children. With her dedication to family values, she understands the needs of senior citizens and as mayor, she would serve as a role model for our young people.
Having served five consecutive terms as mayor, I know how difficult and time-consuming the position is. I have every confidence that Ellen would be an excellent mayor. She is intelligent, well-spoken, ethical, and not afraid to make hard decisions.
Please vote with me on Nov. 7th to elect Ellen Zoppo-Sassu as mayor of the city of Bristol.
