Waller and Kee- Borges continue to line their pockets at taxpayer expense while Segarra lines his gut with caviar, lamb, and champagne courtesy of Hartford taxpayers. It is wrong as well as immoral the way they benefit themselves and their cronies as so many in Hartford are struggling to make ends meet and just keep the lights on and put food on the table.
What is wrong with teaching life's valuable lessons. Apply for a job and if you rise to the top of the other 407 candidates, congratulations. If not, better luck next time. Push yourself a little harder and earn what you want. That's how this country was built. Not everyone has the benefit of a corrupt Uncle Pedro or a scandalous Aunt Saundra.
This type of behavior is unconscionable to most of us, but apparently not to the Waller and Borges families who seem to have made careers of fleecing the people of Hartford. This behavior is only going to change with a complete flush and cleansing of the municipal cesspool at 550 Main Street. It is not going to happen under the "leadership" of Pedro Segarra. No matter how indignant he seems to be each time a scandal is revealed, the bottom line is it is all happening under his nose, on his watch, with his handpicked inner circle. Segarra is either incapable or unwilling to exert the level of leadership Hartford sorely needs.
Once or twice might be understandable, but the constant embarrassments have become the hallmark of Segarra's Administration and change is needed to start turning this disaster around and for Hartford to be taken seriously again. Only when the proper tone is set and accountability begins in City Government will things finally change. I don't see that happening under a Pedro Segarra Administration.
Some people are meant to lead, others should realize their failings and know when to call it quits gracefully.Pedro, now is your time.
