She clearly enjoys the work that she does, and we are all eager to see the wonderful projects she will accomplish in her time with us.”
“I am ready to embark on this exciting ride with the city of Bridgeport,” said Geeti. “I am committed to the citizens of this community, and putting my best foot forward to evoke positive change in the health of Bridgeport residents. We will seek public input and we are looking for the best ideas for how to promote positive medical practices. I thank both Mayor Ganim and Bridgeport for this opportunity, and I can’t wait to get started.”
