Senator Gaston Releases Statement Following Announcement of New M&T Bank in Bridgeport

Today, Senator Gaston is releasing the following statement after M&T Bank announces plans to open a new branch in Bridgeport’s East End.

“This new branch opening up on the east end will be a huge boost in our community allowing our most vulnerable residents to finally have the convenience of accessing their funds when they need,” said Sen. Gaston. “The bank will also provide a great opportunity for careers among many Bridgeport residents in need of a job. This has been a huge push and pull with M&T Bank and I am elated for this moment for our great city of Bridgeport. I look forward to the upcoming success of future employees who will be granted a job in 2024 with M&T Bank, and I hope this location brings easier access for community members to be able to walk right up to the ATM and access what they need.”
