Below is a story that ran on our air Friday. Sorry for posting it late. Looks like there are changes at Segarra headquarters.
Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra has sacked his entire campaign staff following a convincing win in the Democratic primary.
Segarra became mayor following the resignation of Eddie Perez. This is his first run for the office.
In an interview, Segarra said he is cutting his political operation in part because a primary win in a Democratic city is typically a bigger fight than the general election itself. Also, the mayor said he wanted to shift away from a consultant-driven campaign — and get back to on-the-ground political organizing.
Here’s another thing worth noting — Segarra has just gotten the endorsement of the city’s Republicans.
