Welcome to the Office of the Mayor. I hope this virtual guide will help you find the important information you need about Hartford, a city with a proud history and an even more promising future. Since I was 15 years old, this City has provided me with much hope and opportunity--- as it has for generations of families since it was founded in 1635.
Creating jobs, ensuring safe neighborhoods, continuing to raise academic standards and expectations, and stimulating neighborhood economic development with an emphasis on small business are key priorities for Connecticut's Capital City. Also, a stronger and closer working relationship with our city, state, and federal delegations are crucial as we strive for a more fiscally responsible government.
Our "One City, One Plan" for conservation and development is instrumental in our vision for the next decade to be a global, green, and competitive job hub that provides a vibrant quality of life for all of its residents, employees, and visitors.
The diversity of our people is our strength and our residents continue to welcome more and more visitors every year. So, welcome to Hartford and to www.hartford.gov.
