"As Mayor, I will always advocate for Hartford, the city that opened its doors to me and provided opportunities that shaped my success.
My mission is simple: To make Hartford a national model for urban reinvention by leveraging existing resources to attain economic security and create a nurturing, inspiring environment for all residents.
I am committed to modernizing the way our local government works and to running an administration that is efficient, responsive, and open. It is truly a privilege to serve the people of Hartford. I look forward to working together to make Connecticut’s Capital City the best it can be."
