The City of Bridgeport filled a crucial position by promoting from within.
The City Clerk of Bridgeport, Andrea Kerr, has been promoted to the position of Director of Community Development. Kerr served five years as City Clerk and said her new position will be very different from her previous role.
Kerr focused on community relations as City Clerk and will now be focused on development for the growing city.
“I’d say that in the next year we need to update our comprehensive plan and what they will do is it tells us how many new houses we should add for the growth and where we should look to annex next so that will kind of help me get a better idea of what I need to do over the next couple of years,” said Kerr.
The city is actively in the process of filling the position of City Clerk.
