The Mouth for Hartford Baseball, I. Charles Matthews
The poll is by no means scientific, but I think it is a pretty good gauge of what people are thinking. As of the time that I am writing this, approximately 55 votes have been cast against continuing with the current members, and only 2 votes are supportive. I think that could be called an overwhelming lack of confidence in I. Charles Matthews and the Hartford Stadium Authority.
I am not sure why Mayor Bronin has continued to support the leadership (or lack of leadership) of I. Charles Matthews and the other members who appear to have been a complete failure. I am told by some insiders that it may involve election promises made to deliver votes during the recent mayoral election. I don't think Mattherw has been correct on any of his public comments so far on completions or schedules. Matthews is a loose cannon, made worse by the presence of television cameras or microphones.
In case Mayor Bronin doesn't realize it, this stadium mess has the potential to derail any future political aspirations, and continuing on the current path does not bring confidence to Bronin's management style or decision making skills. If he "stays the course", the last thing he will have to worry about will be any future votes or any greater political aspirations.
I think probably the only thing that could have eroded public confidence in the Hartford Stadium Authority more is if Bronin appointed Pedro Segarra to a vacancy on the Authority.
