Hon. Joseph Ganim, Mayor of Bridgeport, Connecticut, was our guest on Criminal Justice Insider with Babz Rawls Ivy & Jeff Grant – The Voice of Connecticut Criminal Justice! Fri., March 2, 2018.

We are grateful that Mayor Ganim shared with us his incredible riches-to-rags-to-redemption story. He was elected mayor of the city five times, and served from 1991 to 2003, when he resigned after being convicted on federal felony corruption charges. Released in 2010 after serving time in federal prison, Ganim returned to Bridgeport and successfully made a political comeback in 2015 when he again won election as mayor, and was sworn in on December 1, 2015.
