Hartford’s Mayor, Luke Bronin, is winding down his tenure and will not seek a third term at the helm of City Hall. Bronin acknowledges that the toughest battle during his two terms as Mayor was pulling the City’s finances back from the brink of bankruptcy with a state-financed bailout.
The COVID-19 pandemic dealt a gut punch to the revitalization process which was both devastating and a major source of frustration, making Bronin’s final year at the helm, a major feat. The pandemic has changed the fundamental work landscape by increasingly shifting it to working remotely from home, reducing the need for office spaces by large and small businesses. There are also planned high-profile downsizing by businesses including United Healthcare. Further details are in provided in an article authored by Kenneth R.
