Mayor Erin Stewart of New Britain stopped by Bristol to promote The Bristol Beat’s newest DJ’s, Stevey Steve and Amy Sunshine.

The station was launched earlier this Summer and continues to grow in popularity.

Steve Gagné owner of The Bristol Beat said “Mayor Stewart was like this little peppy ray of sunshine, from the time she walked through the door to the time she left.  She’s very positive and up-lifting. During the time she visited with us, it was obvious why she’s well-liked in New Britain. We’re all looking forward to more visits from her in the future.”

Stewart was elected to her first term on November 5, 2013, at the age of 26; and reelected to her second term on November 3, 2015.

She is currently the youngest serving female mayor in the United States for a city the size of New Britain.
