Got the unexpected today — a rare phone call from Mayor Eddie A. Perez.
Word on We The People Hartford was that Perez had more work done on his house since the work that got him into trouble. (Jury selection for his trial starts in April.) So we filed an FOI request with the city. And the mayor called.
“Me and my brother painted the house,” Perez said. And his brother also fixed some tile on a basement countertop, a staffer later said. No permits were needed.
Talk of anything else is all “gossip,” Perez said. “So please don’t waste people’s time and effort on it.”
