BRIDGE­PORT >> It’s fit­ting that the bor­ough’s new po­lice chief found out about the job open­ing over a Fran­zone’s pizza.

Todd Bereda’s Bridge­port roots run deep — his great-great-grand­fa­ther helped lay the bor­ough’s curbs.

And to hear him talk, you get the im­pres­sion that he might just bleed Bridge­port bur­gundy, that is, if he wasn’t a cer­ti­fied blue­blood, hail­ing from a fam­ily steeped in Mont­gomery County law en­force­ment. CHIEF >> PAGE 5
