At Wednesday nights public hearing on the Rock Cats deal, Segarra once again found it necessary to embellish the truth during his comments . He was telling the story about how he is constantly hearing from Hartford residents about what a great job he is doing and how they all welcome the Rock Cats deal.
I immediately knew that couldn't be true because the sentiment in the community seems to be more opposed than favorable to the deal. I do know that Segarra has a tendency to only hear what he wants to hear, and probably is tuning out the negative comments. It is all about the ego and convincing himself what a terrific job he is doing. That is what has gotten him into trouble repeatedly.
But then as he continued his remarks, he stated that a resident came up to him and said "If not us, who? If not now, when?". This just sounded too lucid for a Segarra comment .So I had to make my first stop Google to see if we might have a little plagiarism going on here.
Sure enough we do, the fraud continues.Michigan Governor George Romney appears to have been the first modern person to popularize the saying (September 1963). Romney was pushing for “tax reform” — a 2% Michigan state personal income tax. (Michigan now has this tax and it’s over 4%.) In a speech to the Michigan legislature , Romney asked "If not us , who?. If not now , when?"
Pedro, please try dealing with the truth, it will make life a lot easier
