Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia Will Not Seek Reelection

The mayor announced to Stamford Patch Thursday afternoon he would not seek another term.

Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia will not seek another term in office as the current one draws to a close later this year, he announced to Stamford Patch Thursday afternoon.

"I made my decision a while ago," Pavia said in a phone interview. "I am not a career politician. I never intended to make this job a long-term career. While urged by Republicans and Democrats alike to seek another term, I am announcing that I will be stepping away from this position."

Taking office in 2009, Pavia succeeded Dannel P. Malloy, now the governor of Connecticut. With big shoes to fill, Pavia said he was happy with the work he's done.

"I think the record speaks for itself. I've accomplished a great deal," Pavia said. "In the next 10 months, I expect we will continue to accomplish a number of other items. I will continue to work as hard as I have and can only hope I will leave this city in a better place for it."

I don't know this man and don't live in Stamford, but this is one politician I respect. NOT a career politician. Came in, I hope did some good for the citizens of Stamford, and left. Now if we can get others, in Hartford & DC to do the same we just may survive.
