    Mayor's Statement on Resignation of Alderman Drew King

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

    MAYOR DESTEFANO’S STATEMENT ON THE RESIGNATION OF ALDERMAN DREW KING

    -PRESS RELEASE-

    (New Haven) - Today, Drew King resigned his office as Alderman for the 22nd Ward, which covers the Dixwell neighborhood.

    In his resignation letter to Board of Alderman President Carl Goldfield, King stated that he felt “blessed” for the time he spent on the Board. He went further by thanking those friends that gave advice and helped him as he made a decision that is based on family, faith and a desire to put his life into order

    “I believe that Drew did the right thing in resigning - putting the City of New Haven, the Dixwell Community and his family first. I also want to recognize the advice and courage that Board President Carl Goldfield, Alderman Shah and Aldermen Blango gave to Drew,” stated Mayor John DeStefano, Jr.

    The City will now prepare for a special election to fill the vacancy left by King’s resignation sometime in the first few weeks of April, but within the 45 days as mandated by the Charter.

    “The City, the Board and the Dixwell community now look to move forward from these troubles the past couple of months and focus on a positive agenda. Drew’s colleagues on the Board will miss him, but perhaps what that Ward needs is fresh, new energy and new ideas to get past this resignation,” argued DeStefano.
