MAYOR BRONIN, with accompanying resolution concerning the appointment of Darrell V.
Hill as the City of Hartford's Chief Financial Officer and Director of Finance, effective July 5, 2016
I don't normally use profanity, but a few choice words come to mind when reading this. Darryl Hill should be nowhere near Hartford's finances when you consider the mess he has already created. Dillon Stadium quickly comes to mind, and the Hartford Stadium Authority is a close second.
What is Luke, (or whoever is making these decisions) thinking?
And where in Hartford's City Charter does it say anything about a Chief Financial Officer? As a broke City, what are we going to pay for this newly created position? And how can we possibly go to the region and try to explain we are being fiscally responsible and ask for their help while doing things like this.
The Hartford City Council needs to step up with a loud and clear "NO"
