The public is invited to attend the 2017 Inauguration of newly elected city officials.

The Inauguration will be held at Bristol Eastern High School on Monday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m., in the auditorium.

The Courant reported Zoppo-Sassu said “The inauguration is Monday night, the first council meeting is Tuesday, I want to meet with our department heads — it’s going to be busy, I wanted to do this at the Memorial Boulevard School, but there’s a question about the elevator. It’s looking like Bristol Eastern instead.”

Ellen Zoppo-Sassu will be the first female Mayor of Bristol.

On Election Day, DTC Chairman Dean Kilbourne said“Tonight, Bristol has made history. We have elected our first female Mayor.”
