UB is offering students free rides to the polls

BRIDGEPORT — University of Bridgeport spokeswoman Leslie Geary says it’s a service offered every year, not just when Mary-Jane Foster, vice president of university relations is waging a hard fought primary battle for mayor.  Still, an email blast went out today from the Scribe, the university’s student-run campus newspaper reminding students that there is a free shuttle to take them to Roosevelt School every five minutes up until the polls close at 8 p.m.

 The email signs off with  Mary-Jane needs your vote! During the campaign, Foster campaign workers said they found a well of support at UB, getting about 200 students to register to vote in Bridgeport and pledge support for Foster.
