Businessman Bruce Bennett has been confirmed to the Danbury City Council. He was endorsed by the Danbury Republican Town Committee to fill a vacancy as an at-large member. Bennett will replace Christine Chieffalo, who recently moved out of Danbury.
Bennett served on the Southbury Planning Commission in the early 1990s.
The former Danbury Titans owner and long-time car dealer turns 70 this month. He handed the Nissan dealership operation over to his son after 30 years and then created the Federal Hockey League team to play at the Danbury Ice Arena. The team disbanded a year ago after two seasons.
Bennett says he can bring a lot to the table as an entrepreneur, who lives on the west side and invested in CityCenter.
