Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim

Joe Ganim’s election as Bridgeport’s mayor in 2015 was an unlikely comeback story. 

Reelected after seven years in federal prison for felony corruption, Ganim got a second chance. And now, he is asking for their vote to put him back in the mayor’s office once more.

This hour, we sit down with Joe Ganim ahead of the September 10th Democratic primary. 

If you’re a Bridgeport resident, we want to hear from you. What questions do you have for Mayor Ganim? We take your calls, tweets, and Facebook comments.
