Mayor Finch gives “Key to the City” to Paul Vallas

With ousted Democratic Board of Education chairman Kenneth Moales, Jr. at his side, Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch gave Paul Vallas Bridgeport’s “Key to the City” for his “service to students.”

There is still no word whether Governor Malloy or Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor stopped by last night’s “Farewell Reception” for Vallas in Bridgeport but if they did they managed to stay out of the pictures that have been posted on social media sites.

From the reception, corporate education reform industry advocacy group, Excel Bridgeport, Inc. tweeted,“So many wonderful people in the room giving Superintendent Paul Vallas a warm farewell!!”

Now that Vallas has Bridgeport’s “Key to the City” it isn’t clear whether he will drop his attempt to stick up the taxpayers of Bridgeport and Connecticut for that extra $20,000 he has been demanding or simply take the $500,000 he has already received and his “key” and head back to Illinois in early February.

If anyone out there knows whether Malloy or Pryor joined Finch at the extravaganza, don’t hesitate to inform Wait, What? readers.
