The Mayor of Hartford

Feb 10, 2011

Hartford’s new mayor is dealing with piles of snow, a hole in the budget, and the everyday problems of running a city. 

Pedro Segarra took over when Eddie Perez stepped down amidst corruption charges.  At the time, he said he wasn’t planning to run for Mayor again. 

But now he is and he’s facing challengers for that job, already.

He’s also looking at a budget deficit of $40 million dollars next year.  Yesterday he got some good news from Governor Malloy about education grants from the state.  But there’s still a long way to go to fill the budget hole.

Today, a conversation with Hartford’s mayor about all these things and more.
