On Tuesday Mayor Eddie Perez held a press conference that was a well-crafted preemptive strike by he and his attorney to mitigate the damage against him. Unfortunately he and his high powered attorney can’t do the same for the city of Hartford which he was elected to protect from such dishonest acts.

January 27, 2009 was a sad day for Hartford only because it was the beginning of many more arrests and sad days to come. The corrupt Willie Nunez administration is going to have to give an account for its mismanagement of the city trust.

The only good thing that may come from the sinking of the “SS Titanic aka Nunez Administration” is that the Hartford Court of Common Council might finally mature. It is the responsibility of the City Council to provide oversight of the Executive Branch of City Government.

If the political posturing of certain council members can be tamped down, it is possible that the City Council under the leadership of Pedro Segarra could come full circle. We will know the answer to that question once a unified City Council calls for Willie Nunez to step down.

They can call it a well-crafted preemptive strike for the sake of mitigating further damages against the city of Hartford. Failure to do so would only mean that the Court of Common Council is as corrupt as the administration.

next Mayor will do basically the same thing. Everyone wants the "strong Mayor" pay and will help out family and friends. Nobody will be better or worse. Cant make everyone happy...

Perez has to be put away. He is a malignant tumor in Hartford City Hall, thoroughly and completely corrupt and dishonest.

Why is Bill Clinton recieving tens of millions of dollars from Foreign countries? Follow the money should be
used by the government. Bubba and Hillary have become multi-millionaires.
Does the Ivy League condone this action?
The serfs are using Bubba as an example, monkey see, monkey do.

Perez is Mexican or something like that he'll get off, the city should demand his resignation.

The state legislature should pass a law that creates the exact same penalty for lying to state investigators/attys, regardless of whether they are under oath or not.

But the legislature wont, because theyre a bunch of thieves too.
