Statement from Council President Shawn Wooden on allegations made by Republican Registrar Sal Bramante
“One of the most important jobs of the Council is to be responsible with taxpayer funds. Given the low turnout of town committee primaries and the number of registered Republicans in the City of Hartford, we believe that these elections call for the minimum staffing levels required by state law. On February 27th, the Council allocated sufficient funding to meet those requirements. The Council did its job, and did so responsibly. And while we are being accommodating and are working to find a solution that best serves the city, the Republican registrar is being wasteful, unresponsive and combative. The public deserves better.”
The above statement was received in response to the previous posting regarding the Republican Registrar's comments regarding the Council's actions for the upcoming Presidential primary.
