The exodus continues from the beleaguered Bronin Administration. The latest to jump ship is the Director of the Emergency Services Telecommunications Department, Clayton Northgraves. Northgraves has apparently informed Mayor Luke Bronin that he will be leaving.
Northgraves took over the troubled agency in November 2014 and restored management to a City Department that was frequently criticized for its inefficiency under its previous Director, retired HPD Sergeant Andrew Jaffee.
Northgraves is only the latest in Hartford Department heads that have parted ways with the Bronin Administration in the 18 months the Mayor has been in office.
Northgraves was previously with the Town of Enfield and the City of New Have in 2014n before coming to Hartford.
In addition to Northgraves there have also been numerous departures from the Police and Fire Departments in the last several days adding to the leadership void in City Departments. Much of this is being caused by the indecisiveness of the Administration and the concern over the course of Hartford's future and the lack of any structural change to put Hartford back on a solid foundation.
