Mayor Curt Leng

I was born and raised in Hamden, and I am extraordinarily proud to serve as your Mayor. I have lived in Hamden all my life, and now my wife Stefanie and I are raising our son Cooper here. Since being elected as your Mayor in November 2015, I have been working hard every day for Hamden’s success. Over the past two years, our Town has made significant strides towards becoming a more secure, safe, and sustainable Hamden – a place we can all be proud to call home.

In 2 years, Hamden saw its short and long-term bond ratings increased to “SP+1” and “A+” respectively. We paved and repaired more than 25 miles of streets throughout Hamden’s communities, with more than 5* miles of brand new sidewalks poured in the same time frame.  We opened a new Police Substation on Dixwell Avenue, we put body cameras on our Officers, we ticketed more than 500 traffic offenders in 2016 alone, AND – we established the first walking beats and bicycle patrols in Hamden in over 40 years. These are just a few examples of our success.

Working towards the benefit of our great Town is one of the sweetest joys in my life, and I can proudly express to you that my work has only just begun! I will never stop working for our future, and I humbly ask for your support as we work together to make Hamden a better home.
