Council Spotlight

Recognizing the Retirement of the Mayor of Rockville Bridget Newton

On Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2023, Councilmembers Sidney Katz and Kate Stewart presented a proclamation to celebrate the accomplishments and service of Rockville Mayor Bridget Donnell Newton, who has served as mayor for the last ten years.

During her tenure, she championed economic development initiatives in the City of Rockville, launched the Rockville Goes Purple campaign to raise awareness about the impact of opioid addiction, and during the 2019 election, Rockville became the first city in Maryland to conduct its local election entirely by mail.
