Attorneys for Hartford Democratic Registrar of Voters today prepared a request for an injunction to stop removal proceedings underway by the Hartford City Council. Attorneys for Working Families Registrar filed similar paperwork yesterday.
Tomorrow morning March 28th, Saturday I'll be on the Tony Terzi program on WDRC radio for the 8am hour. Tony will be taking phone calls on the live program. Fell free to listen in if you have time, I think it will be an interesting conversation.
Word was issued from the office of Hartford Fire Chief Carlos Huertas that he was unable to find any qualified candidates to fill his open Assistant Chief slots from within the HFD. Huertas stated that he would be initiating a nationwide search outside the Department to fill the slots.It seems as a failure on Huertas's part that no one is qualified or was mentored by him to move up, even though there appears to be several qualified people that should be developed to move up from within
Maybe in an effort to be fiscally responsible , we could find a search company that would give us a package deal. Conduct a search for both the Assistant Chief and a Chief able to properly develop suitable replacements to move up from within.
Its just an idea but I think we deserve suitable people to fill in and lead the HFD, and I don't think we need to look outside, we just need someone that is capable to lead and develop what we have already. Too much time has been wasted on the games that have already been played for the last year or so.
The first steps in the legal battles that promise to be prolonged and costly to Hartford's taxpayers have begun. Legal papers were filed today by attorney Thomas Murphy who is representing Working Families Registrar Urania Petit.
Her application for a temporary injunction was filed today.
When do Hartford's residents reach their boiling point? When do we get tired of all the negative editorials pointing out the incompetence and failings of the Segarra Administration. Are we tired yet of the self entitlement of Segarra, Saundra Kee-Borges Terry Waller an the Segarra inner circle. All of this at the hands and on the backs of some of the most impoverished people in this Country
Waller and Kee- Borges continue to line their pockets at taxpayer expense while Segarra lines his gut with caviar, lamb, and champagne courtesy of Hartford taxpayers. It is wrong as well as immoral the way they benefit themselves and their cronies as so many in Hartford are struggling to make ends meet and just keep the lights on and put food on the table.
What is wrong with teaching life's valuable lessons. Apply for a job and if you rise to the top of the other 407 candidates, congratulations. If not, better luck next time. Push yourself a little harder and earn what you want. That's how this country was built. Not everyone has the benefit of a corrupt Uncle Pedro or a scandalous Aunt Saundra.
This type of behavior is unconscionable to most of us, but apparently not to the Waller and Borges families who seem to have made careers of fleecing the people of Hartford. This behavior is only going to change with a complete flush and cleansing of the municipal cesspool at 550 Main Street. It is not going to happen under the "leadership" of Pedro Segarra. No matter how indignant he seems to be each time a scandal is revealed, the bottom line is it is all happening under his nose, on his watch, with his handpicked inner circle. Segarra is either incapable or unwilling to exert the level of leadership Hartford sorely needs.
Once or twice might be understandable, but the constant embarrassments have become the hallmark of Segarra's Administration and change is needed to start turning this disaster around and for Hartford to be taken seriously again. Only when the proper tone is set and accountability begins in City Government will things finally change. I don't see that happening under a Pedro Segarra Administration.
Some people are meant to lead, others should realize their failings and know when to call it quits gracefully.Pedro, now is your time.
After getting fed up with the lack of openness in Hartford City Hall, I decided to begin a program on Hartford Public Access Television called "WE THE PEOPLE". Through tips received we have been able to expose numerous issues that the Perez Administration would prefer to keep quiet.
