Downtown Biz Owners Want New Mayor

18 posts in this topic

An increasing number of downtown business owners are saying they want a new Mayor. They say the mayor has been silent on the increase of downtown crime, and Saturday's shooting outside Trumbull Kitchen was the final straw. If you are not safe there, then where are you safe? I've heard they are upset by the departure of three major employers under the Perez administration: Mass Mutual, ING, and WFSB, with no replacements. The mayor has worsened the parking system: More meter maids and fewer spaces. The mayor has failed to get a new parking garage built (Morgan Street was proposed under Mayor Peters) and he has failed to develop empty parking lots. Most of the development is the result of the state. Keep your eyes on the Courant, the mayor's support of the union at the Convention Center is about to cost downtown another big high profile event.

I saw it on the news Sunday morning. A man was robbed and shot in front of Trumbull Kitchen. The north end thing was something different.

Sources please. Or is this mainly your personal opinion, as I suspect? We know by now what you think of the mayor so there is no need to hind behind the veil of "downtown business owners." By no means am I suggesting that you aren't entitled to your opinion but let's be honest here...

I believe it!!!!!! Mayor Perez needs get voted out. The citizens of Hartford need to vote in a pro-business Mayor if they want to see a strong business climate evolve. His union support at TCC center is only hurting things more then helping.

I saw that on the news as well. Not good!

All;

Is the HPD station still in the NORTH MEADOWS area? If it is, they need an hour to get to DOWNTOWN. Who put that station there? Hard to get to.

i am sure we will hear about 1 more major hartford insurance company moving their 1200+ downtown employees to Bloomfield within the next 12 months. They aren't happy with the current building or cost of parking downtown.
