IT MIGHT WORK FOR ELLIOTT BUT APPARENTLY NOT FOR RAMON
Hartford politico Ramon Arroyo, husband of 3rd District State Representative Minnie Gonzalez, apparently isn't as lucky. Arroyo had been arrested years ago for soliciting a prostitute, who was actually an undercover cop, while he was working as an employee of the City of Hartford in his City vehicle.
Although Spitzer must hope that the voters of New York have short memories and don't place much weight on character or integrity, Democratic Town Committee members from the southern part of Hartford and the northern portion of Wethersfield apparently do.
Last night ,Arroyo was soundly defeated by political newcomer Albi Sako in his run for a coveted Democratic State Central seat. Sako defeated Arroyo 33-10 in a very decisive vote.
Sako in his short time on Hartford's Democratic Town Committee has brought a breath of fresh air to Hartford politics and is hopefully beginning to usher in a new era of leadership for our City.
Arroyo is also apparently a Commissioner with the Connecticut Puerto Rican and Latino Affairs Commission
