HARTFORD'S DOUBLE STANDARD
The list above is a document given to all potential Hartford Police applicants this week in preparation for their pre-employment background checks. I understand the need for a fair and thorough background check of police applicants, but should they really be held to a higher standard than anyone else at City Hall, including the made up position of Chief Financial Officer?
One of the documents requested for the background check is "proof of your most recent motor vehicle and real estate taxes payment"
I am just wondering , why is it OK to ask that of a potential Police Officer but we don't require the same information of a potential Finance Director or a CFO, if we had such a position.
Maybe because the CFO hasn't paid his auto taxes for over a year so he has no proof of payment to submit
