The Mayoral campaign is heating up, and everyone is weighing in.
Kevin Rennie, a columnist from the Hartford Courant and also a blogger at "the Daily Ruction", dailyructions.com, posted his review of mayoral candidate Shawn Wooden's performance on WFSB's "Face the State".
Here are Kevin Rennie's comments:
WOODEN BY NAME, WOODEN BY NATURE
Many people possess high hopes for Hartford Democrat Shawn Wooden’s campaign for mayor of Hartford this year. They may adjust them after Wooden’s embarrassing debut on Sunday’s Face the State.
Wooden should not have been surprised by the first question. It was the classic, “Why do you want to be [insert office here]? Mercy, the Day Pitney lawyer seemed stumped. He rambled like he was trying to pad his billable hours. It got worse. Wooden, who has done well with early fundraising, offered a river of generalities in what ails Hartford and how he’d fix them.
The lowest moment came when Wooden tried to dance around the conviction of disgraced former Hartford mayor Eddie Perez. He would not say if he believed the Perez verdict was fair because, after all, he was never in the courtroom during the trial.
During his halting performance, Wooden promised to provide “serious, meaningful” leadership. His potential to do that was not on display during 12 1/2 painful minutes with Dennis House.
