Mike Peters tears Perez a new one.

7 posts in this topic

First he suggested that Perez cut his staff in half. Peters said there is no way he needs 38 people especially with the city running a deficit.

He said none of the city's directors have a clue what Perez is doing because he keeps everyone in the dark.

Peters wanted to meet with Perez but got the run around. The former mayor hasn't talked to Eddie in 6 years.

Perez is clueless about the relationship with the state. Perez is responsible for the relationship going south and even showed up for a surprise meeting with the governor when the governor wasn't there. This terrible relationship (which is Perez's fault) is costing the city big time.

The mayor isn't doing anything about filling the vacant lots downtown and the investments that the city is making are the wrong ones. Pezez should do more on the waterfront but he has ignored it.

It's not just city businesses, suburban governments are not happy with Perez.

He also implied the "other shoe is about to drop" in regards to the grand jury investigating Perez.

So, in short, Perez is a lone ranger ignoring advice with a bloated staff making bad investments and is about to be indicted. But didn't we know that before the election and before the Courant endorsed him?

Congrats to Mike Peters for the courage to say what should have been said long ago.

My friend, I. Charles said all of this during the campaign. Too bad the voters didn't really turn out to vote and most who did didn't pay attention. I. Charles did carry the North End and West End though. The rest of the city screwed us this time.

What is the Hartford voter looking for these days?

I think that Hartford suffers from an incumbancy issue. I mean it seems hard to dislodge an incumbant in the current environment.

I wonder how hard it would be to get a strong voting block to win an election.

knowing nothing about how the city does the election....

is it purely based on popular vote?

HT you said you buddy won the west end and the North end. does that matter or is the real figure Perez dominating the south end?

just curious how the now 1500 downtown residents will play a role in upcoming elections.

It's all popular vote and a few hundred new voters could make a significant impact since turnout is abysmal. The issue is that Mathews narrowly won where he won, and Perez dominated heavily in the South End, with Matthews finding very little traction there. It may be a matter of ethnicity unfortunately as many hispanics seemed to think it was the blacks and whites trying to take their guy out and came out strong to keep that from happening. And you are correct, we do have a serious incumbancy issue. People are not likely at all to oust sitting politicians in the city or even the state from what I've noticed.
