Historic Inauguration Set For Nov. 13 — Public invited

The public is invited to attend the 2017 Inauguration of newly elected city officials.

The Inauguration will be held at Bristol Eastern High School on Monday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m., in the auditorium.

The Courant reported Zoppo-Sassu said “The inauguration is Monday night, the first council meeting is Tuesday, I want to meet with our department heads — it’s going to be busy, I wanted to do this at the Memorial Boulevard School, but there’s a question about the elevator. It’s looking like Bristol Eastern instead.”

Ellen Zoppo-Sassu will be the first female Mayor of Bristol.

On Election Day, DTC Chairman Dean Kilbourne said“Tonight, Bristol has made history. We have elected our first female Mayor.”

Zoppo-Sassu said “I think all we can say is that the people have spoken.”
