According to the Hartford Courant today, Mayor Pedro Segarra and his staff today were "shocked" to learn that a popular basketball program that has worked with Hartford's youth for 16  years would be moving to Waterbury.

Shocked? The proper term should be ashamed. With Segarra's high priced marketing staff, should they not have been on top of this. Did it not dawn on any of the braintrust "Geez, have you noticed the pro-am hasn't booked any school for 6 weeks like they usually do?". No one noticed that there were no planning meetings being held?" Or even that someone probably should reach out to the pro-am organizers and ask " How can we help you get this moving for this year?"

That's what sales people do. They chase the leads and make sure they are closing the deals. Not let them pack up and move to Waterbury without a fight.

Again, they should be shocked, embarrassed and all the other words that apply to incompetent individuals that are more concerned about salaries than moving Hartford forward and serving our youth.

If the pro-am has saved one Hartford child from street violence, it's value is priceless and we can't allow events like this to slip through our fingers.

The leadership vacuum keeps growing every day.

Mayor Pedro Segarra's embattled Chief of Staff  Jared Kupiec today called it quits, claiming he is moving on to attend Law School. Just what we need, Kupiec as a lawyer.
In a letter to City staff, Kupiec stated:
"Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with a mixture of joy and sadness that I announce my resignation today.  I will not be leaving immediately, however, as there is need to allow for a seamless transition and a full recalibration of the Mayor's administration.

It has been an absolute pleasure to serve the City of Hartford. I have learned a tremendous amount working alongside all of you and am grateful for all the work we’ve accomplished together.

I have thought a lot about this decision and know that it is the best one for me at this time. My next step will be to prepare for a new career outside of politics and law school, which has been a life-long ambition that I have put off for far too long.  I will always be loyal to our Capital City and am eager to continue championing its incredible potential. I look forward to seeing some of the projects I pushed forward grow and develop but there are new challenges and opportunities that I feel compelled to pursue.

I have to once again thank Mayor Segarra for giving me this special opportunity. It has been a tremendous journey to work for someone with real vision and passion.

Thank you all for your tireless dedication to the City of Hartford and I look forward to staying in touch.
