    I am interested in learning how the city is positioned to petition for infrastructure spending at the federal level as well as progress with NoHo and I-84 tunnel proposals!

    As a City of Hartford resident  I would like to go to this event to learn more about what the city A ministration plans to do citywide and regionally. Also as  HYPE member for the past three years this will be my first hype event

    The specific challenges Hartford faces with housing have long been a passion of mine. Hearing the mayor speak on what he thinks the future holds for filing vacancies, transit oriented development, surface parking, the spin off benefits from West Hartford coming down places like Park St, oher challenges we face, other solutions we have- how I can work with his vision and plans would be immensely valuable for a person like myself. 
    I'm ready to help, I want all the information I can get.

    I would like to attend this event with the Mayor to hear updates about the city's evolving plan for school consolidation and improvement.

    It would be interesting to see not only where the city has come from and where it's headed, but also to learn about the plan for getting there.

    I live in downtown Hartford and am very interested in the (obviously) controversial concept of regionalism.  I'd like to hear what Mayor Bronin thinks the response to some of these conversations from wealthier suburban neighbors has been to date.

    I'm looking forward to hearing the Mayor speak on the future prospects of Hartford, and how he is planning to address some of the current challenges the city is facing.

    I'd like to hear what the mayor has planned to bring together all the individual towns of CT to better the state as a whole, in addition to the Hartford-specific initiatives he has and what we as citizens can do to help/foster/educate/promote..

    Living in the West End, there is certainly a staunch difference in the feel and development neighborhoods even a few blocks apart. Are there plans to smooth some of the rifts in our communities? If not, we may see an even greater cleavage between neighborhoods.

    Very excited to hear what Mayor Bronin has to say at this breakfast! As a new resident in Hartford, I'm becoming increasingly interested in better understanding the current state of affairs and doing my best to stay informed. Events like these help provide context and insight from folks who would otherwise be harder to access. Thanks for putting this together.
