Danbury City Councilman to resign after 20 years

After 20 years representing Danbury's 4th ward on the City Council, Tom Saadi is stepping down.  The Council Minority leader will submit his resignation to the Mayor and the Council President at their February 5th meeting. 

Saadi often spoke at municipal land use meetings in opposition to developments and zone changes believed to be harmful to the neighborhood, including fighting against a proposed waste transfer station on Plumtrees Road.  Saadi, a Major in the Army Reserves, also fought for the Army Reserve Center in Danbury. 

Since 2017, Saadi has served as the Commissioner of the State Department of Veterans Affairs.  He says greater responsibilities as Commissioner and increased military obligations, combined family responsibilities, led to his decision. While calling it an honor to serve Danbury and its people over the years, Saadi said the time and energy necessary to properly serve the residents of the 4th Ward, while carrying out his duties to Veterans, to this county and to his family, made it tough. 

He added that he will miss serving on the Council.
