BOE Member Joe Sokolovic Endorses Gomes For Mayor
Bridgeport, CT - Board of Education member Joe Sokolovic, has endorsed John Gomes for the Office of Mayor.
Sokolovic stated, “As someone who has been involved in education for the last 8 years, as a father, advocate and elected official and being intimately familiar with education funding, It’s refreshing to see a Mayoral candidate that has taken an interest in Bridgeport Public Schools. John is the only candidate, thus far, to put forth an education platform that truly recognizes the interplay between state and local funding. His plan recognizes that the city is not doing enough in regards to local funding and has an actual plan to find ways to shift dollars."
Sokolovic continued, "John is a product of Bridgeport Public Schools and entrusted his children to our underfunded system, which shows a dedication to public education. He seems to realize that the damage done to our children is due to fiscal neglect, especially on the local level that has been taking place for decades and most recently under the current administration. Our students cannot afford four more years of the status quo.It is for these reasons, I am proudly endorsing John Gomes for Mayor!"
Gomes stated, "Joe Sokolovic has been a tireless advocate for the students in the Bridgeport Public School system and I am honored to have earned his endorsement for Mayor. Our movement for change continues to grow each day and I am grateful for all the support from elected officials and the Bridgeport community."
Joe Sokolovic joins City Council member Jorge Cruz as the second elected official to formally endorse John Gomes for Mayor.
