Mayor Ganim Swears In New Health Director

BRIDGEPORT —  Mayor Joe Ganim on Tuesday swore in a new Director of Health for the city of Bridgeport.

Maritza Bond brings extensive experience in health administration including nearly a decade with the Eastern Area Health Education Center covering Eastern Connecticut from a base in New London, serving as the organization’s executive director for the last four years.  Bond also has experience managing immunization, medical interpretation  and other programs for diverse populations in the Bridgeport area and the Naugatuck Valley.

Bond’s first official day as Bridgeport Director of Health was on Nov. 1  and according to Connecticut state law, she is now sworn in for a term of four years, to conclude on October 31, 2020.

She is a graduate of Southern Connecticut State University and holds a Master of Public Health Degree from the University of Connecticut Medical School in Farmington.

Bond was nominated for the position by Mayor Ganim after a thorough search and was overwhelmingly approved by the Bridgeport city council on Oct. 17, 2016.

“I am very happy to have Maritza Bond as part of our administration, I am sure she will serve the residents of Bridgeport extremely well,” said Mayor Ganim.  “She clearly has passion and energy for this work and we look forward to years of accomplishments in improving public health in our city that Maritza will lead.”
