He’s been an exceptional Town Attorney, Public Safety Director and Acting Town Manager. No one can compete with Chris in either his base of municipal knowledge and experience or his innate people skills. If the last three months is any indication of where we’re headed, Enfield has some great things in store.” In the past few months, Chris already made a positive impact amongst Town employees from various departments as they were happy to learn that Bromson is staying.

While I’ve loved serving as Town Attorney and Director of Public Safety, both of those positions enhanced my ability to be an effective Acting Town Manager, and ultimately readied me for this exciting challenge as Town Manager. It absolutely feels like the next right thing and I’m eager to continue my work with the Council, staff, and residents.”
