I first posted here on July 29, 2011 about the City of Hartford's questionable medical benefit that allowed City of Hartford employees to travel to Puerto Rico for Medical care. You can read that original posting here

Then on August 14, 2011, the Courant's Kevin Rennie picked up on the story and wrote about it in his column in the Courant. You can read his column here

Now the Courant is reporting that the City has cancelled its contract with Satori Medical due to concerns over a previous fraud conviction involving the companies owner. The Courant story can be found here

Do the words "due diligence" mean anything to those working at Hartford City Hall? A simple Google search before signing any contracts with Satori Medical would have turned up all the information they would need.

The employees in City hall only use the Internet for facebook. They don't have time to research contracts that could involve hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars.

What is wrong with City Hall? Is there anybody over there who actually gives a damn! For Hartford's sake I hope either Stan McCauley or Kevin Brookman make it in November 8.

There are many City employees who DO give a damn and work very hard every day for the taxpayers of Hartford. Don't slander all the employees based on department's mistake.
