This Saturday, Eyewitness News kicks off a new and, hopefully, somewhat regular feature: Nutmeg Names.
We are going to take a look at some local folks who have made a mark on Connecticut.
First up, former Hartford Mayor Ann Uccello. In 1967, she became the first woman elected mayor of our capital city, and the first woman in America to be elected mayor of a major city.
Uccello was also the last Republican mayor of Hartford. She became one of the popular politicians in our state, and eventually went on to work for Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford in Washington, D.C.
Mayor Uccello has great stories to tell, too many to fit in the confines of Eyewitness News. She is a fascinating woman.
Learn more about this political pioneer on the morning of Saturday, Dec. 2 on Eyewitness News This Weekend between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m.
