Here's Abrantes' bio:
Helena is a candidate for the City Council in Ward 2 where she lives with her husband, David. Helena has two adult children who both attended Danbury Public Schools. Her oldest son graduated from Fordham University with a degree in Physics. Her youngest son graduated from the University of New Haven and is a franchise owner and a 2nd Lieutenant in the army. Helena served on the City Council from 1995 to 2001 and as City Clerk from 2001 until 2003. She was the Mayoral candidate for the Democratic party in 2007. Helena is a para-legal and owns a restaurant, The Atlantic, on Osborne Street. She is very concerned with the city’s direction and thinks we need people on the Council who can voice their opinion. She will meet regularly with her constituents and attend City Council meetings on their behalf.
Recently, I met up with Abrantes and talked to her about her campaign and her take on issues in the city...as well as her take on the performance of Mark Boughton four years after her run for mayor.
