MAYOR GANIM STATEMENT, CONDOLENCES ON THE PASSING OF CHARLES (CHARLIE) COVIELLO

 
Bridgeport, CT – This evening, on June 13, 2019 the City of Bridgeport recognizes and mourns the loss of an employee, and long-time activist, advocate, politician, and friend, Charles (Charlie) Coviello.   
 
Mayor Ganim offered condolences, “We all feel a great loss by the passing of our friend.  Not only did Charlie make many great contributions to the East End and our city, but he always put community first.  I’ve known Charlie politically and as a friend for more than thirty years – he was one of a kind, he was the last of his kind, and will certainly be missed.”
