New Haven Mayor John DeStefano Has New Jobs Lined Up

The 10-term mayor decided not to seek reelection and will end his two-decade run as New Haven's mayor on Jan. 1.



    New Haven Mayor John DeStefano Jr. has lined up a couple of new jobs when he leaves City Hall after 20 years.

    DeStefano will be executive director at Start Community Bank on Jan. 2, a job he announced last May. He'll begin teaching a political science course at Yale University later in January.

    Start Community Bank resulted from a settlement in a battle DeStefano led more than a decade ago over the conversion of the 167-year-old mutual New Haven Savings bank to stock ownership.

    The New Haven Register reports that at Yale, DeStefano will teach a course focusing on New Haven as it compares with New York, New Orleans and other cities in the development of transportation, manufacturing and culture.

    State Sen. Toni Harp will be inaugurated New Haven mayor on Jan. 1.
