STAMFORD, CT - Stamford Mayor David Martin announced on Wednesday the appointment of Citizen’s Service Supervisor Frank Fedeli to serve as the veterans’ service contact person for the City of Stamford. Fedeli will be charged with assisting local veterans in gaining access and information to services and leading the newly-established Veterans’ Resource Center once open this fall.
“We have a dedicated community of veterans here in Stamford, who served with distinction in order protect us and the freedoms we have come to enjoy.
