Council candidate Greg Hahn is commitment to bring Memorial Boulevard School back from uncertainty

Memorial Boulevard School

I am proud to call Greg Hahn my friend for over 40 years. When he told me about his passion and commitment to bring Memorial Boulevard School back from disuse to a new use, a new life, I knew I needed to do more than just vote.

My BFA from the University of Hartford Art School has energized me in my life and opened my eyes to how all forms of the arts can transform and build up a community and make it more prosperous and enjoyable. A cultural center coupled with an entertainment theater would be an asset that could last for generations.

Sadly, our current mayor has let that idea of a new vibrant MBS wallow to a point of uncertainty on whether it will ever be more than just an old school waiting for renovation into office space.

Greg sees what I see, the potential within MBS to become a historical gem repurposed into a mecca for enjoyment and community pride. With a large enough theater, many musical and theatrical shows will be able to find a welcome home. And where people flock, so do businesses that cater to hungry, thirsty, happy people.

For too long, Bristol has created empty space in hopes that businesses will see potential and build. Our city planners must do better. A plan to create open space in the center of Bristol and then put bids out to see what can be built there is not a viable plan.  

I believe that Greg is the right man, for the right job, at the right time. Bristol needs a councilman like Greg Hahn. He has shown me that he cares deeply about the future growth of Bristol.

MBS is but one project but I believe an important one. Greg believes that too. This is an opportunity to create a living breathing entertainment and cultural center, which will bring back to downtown Bristol needed revenue in a way that will last beyond Greg’s tenure on the council.
