WEST HAVEN, Dec. 11, 2019 — Mayor Nancy R. Rossi was presented with a framed certificate from Connecticut Conference of Municipalities President Neil M. O’Leary and Trinity College professor Daniel J. Mrozowski on Tuesday, Dec. 3, for completing 36 hours of study to become a certified Connecticut municipal official.

Rossi was honored for her achievement in the CCM training program at its annual convention at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard.

The CCMO coursework, developed by Trinity, educates elected and appointed municipal officials in working collaboratively, solving problems, building partnerships, and working across political and organizational boundaries, said O’Leary, the mayor of Waterbury.

During the CCM convention, Rossi was also recognized with an award for West Haven’s Bronze designation by Sustainable CT at its 2019 Certified Towns Award Ceremony.

The city met high standards in a broad range of sustainability accomplishments, including improving air quality in public spaces, to earn the prestigious Bronze certification, according to Lynn Stoddard, executive director of the Institute for Sustainable Energy at Eastern Connecticut State University, which manages the Sustainable CT program.

West Haven was also nominated as a CT Success Story for its commitment to addressing climate vulnerability.

The Bronze certification is good for three years and can be upgraded to Silver with the achievement of additional sustainability actions, said Robin Parsons, who leads the West Haven Sustainability Team.
