Former assistant to Danbury Mayor named head of CityCenter
He left hometown Danbury to get married, and now joined by his wife, Kara, and their 11-year-old chocolate Labrador, Charlie Brown, he returns to the town where he played High School football. PJ Prunty has been named new Executive Director of CityCenter Danbury. He couldn't be more thrilled, but his delayed honeymoon comes first. In mid-August, he will take the position, filled for eight years by another Danbury enthusiast, Andrea Gartner. As he calls in from Hawaii, “ I look forward to building upon the recent successes within CityCenter Danbury and to further increase the positive momentum that is clearly visible throughout our Downtown. I'm appreciative for the opportunity to work with the members of the CityCenter Board, staff, Downtown property owners and merchants, and residents to continue to make CityCenter Danbury the destination for business opportunities, arts and culture, dining and entertainment, and history buffs." PJ returns from a year at Empire State College in Saratoga Springs, NY, where he served in the Office of the President in much the same way as he served Mayor Mark Boughton for five years. In 2010, PJ was hired as community services coordinator at Danbury City Hall. His bride of seven months served as a contract analyst for the Office of the New York State Comptroller.
