NEW BRITAIN – Today, Christopher Porcher officially filed his candidacy for New Britain Mayor in the 2019 municipal election. Chris was joined by his family, campaign manager and members of the Democratic Town Committee.

Porcher, a life long resident, has worked in the city for the last seven years as an advocate and educator in service to youth, adults and families. Christopher’s campaign, relying on his social services background and managerial experience, will emphasize more efficient and effective approaches to leading city government.   

“I have dedicated all of my working years to social services and assisting other residents. I am dedicated to bringing social change and creating an inspirational movement that we are in desperate need of. I have unique experiences of being a public servant and an administrator who will serve the citizens of New Britain well. As manager in a nonprofit organization, I have served as an innovative leader who is dedicated to bringing change and hope for all people. I have the experience of overseeing budgets and making tough decisions in the best interests of people.

“I am well aware of the increased burden of property taxes for the average citizen of New Britain.  Mortgages and escrow payments have increased faster than income. We must take action in order to keep New Britain an affordable place to live. New Britain has the ability to be a leader; not a follower. I am committed to leading a forward thinking government that values education and economic growth.

“As we talk with communities all over the city, I look forward to learning voter concerns and ideas. This is not my personal agenda, but an agenda for the people of New Britain. My commitment is to protect taxpayers, bring innovation, and make education a priority for New Britain once again.”
