    Toni Harp

    Mayor of New Haven

    An abiding commitment to social justice steers Mayor Harp’s career in public service.

She was recently elected to a third term as mayor. Throughout her career, her policy priorities have centered on full access to affordable healthcare, public safety and an equitable criminal justice system, public education, with particular emphasis on early childhood learning and literacy, and job creation and economic development.
