New Britain’s newly elected twenty-six-year-old Mayor, Erin Stewart, has a little experience with that office. Her father, Tim Stewart, held that office for four terms. Now elected to her first political position, Stewart is quickly working to prepare herself, her staff, and her city for the transition after defeating Mayor Tim O’Brien Tuesday night.
