(July 25, 2012) --- Mayor Pedro E. Segarra released the following statement following the recent internal announcement that Lincoln Financial Group has signed a 5-year extension to remain in Hartford at Metro Center on Church Street.
"I am thrilled that Lincoln has decided to stay in Hartford. A 20-year commitment to our wonderful City is something we value and treasure – it shows a willingness on their part to continue being a critical stakeholder in the ongoing renaissance of Connecticut's Capital City. I want to thank Laura Dambier and her team for being such terrific visionaries and friends and for their willingness to embrace our vision and mission as we continue our work to make Hartford a terrific place to live, work and play."
Last November Mayor Segarra congratulated Lincoln Financial Group's long-term care initiative, MoneyGuard Reserve Plus, for hitting $1 billion in sales and for their consistent support of organizations like the Artists Collective, Greater Hartford Arts Council and the Hartford Public Library. Most recently the Mayor was invited to address employees as part of Lincoln's Diversity Program.
