Each year the city council decides among itself who will serve in the role of Mayor. Each year we know someone of great skills will be chosen to serve. The people of Bristol have through elections empowered each of those individuals who serve on city council to make wise choices and to govern responsibly. As in years past with Mayor Dolan, Mayor Feierabend, and countless others, Mayor Powers too has served our community well. The roll of Mayor is one of self-sacrifice and a great willingness to serve.
As we look to the handing off of the Mayor’s gavel at the July City Council meeting we thank Mayor Powers for her strength, eloquence, a year dotted by countless meetings, ribbon cuttings, speeches, nights, weekends and holidays and welcome the next Mayor to the role.
