WATERBURY, Connecticut — Waterbury Mayor Neil O'Leary says he's changed his mind and will seek a third term.
The Republican-American reports (http://bit.ly/1LIaSeh ) that O'Leary said on his radio program he initially intended to call a halt at the end of his second two-year term. But he said messages from supporters and well-wishers over the past few days prompted him to think again.
He says he's interested in serving the city for the next four years and that he's committed to Waterbury.
A recent change in the city charter extended the mayor's term from two years to four.
O'Leary says accomplishments included Waterbury's A-plus bond rating, consolidation of Board of Education offices and an announced privatization of the emergency dispatch center expected to free up police and firefighters.
