What do you like about Bridgeport … why is this a good place to live?  I tell my kids all the time that you live in a “Hallmark Movie." The sense of community, the “small town feel," opportunity, and spirit of excellence that Bridgeport has is extremely rare.

What is your best childhood memory? Riding bicycles around Bridgeport with my brother Mike and our friends on summer days. On any given day, we may have played wiffle ball, football, basketball, or played in the woods. Depending on our location at lunchtime, one of our moms would feed the whole crew, and we typically weren’t expected home until dinner time. Bridgeport was a great place to grow up and those summer days were full of adventure.
