In Hartford, city officials have been wrestling with a possible ethical issue for months. The question was whether the city treasurer should be allowed to supervise his wife. Now, as WNPR’s Jeff Cohen reports, city officials say an agreement is near.
Meanwhile, Cloud is facing criticism from political opponents over another issue. Last week, WNPR reported that Cloud — a Democrat — has used his work email to ask banks that do business with the city to donate money to a non-profit for back-to-school supplies. That non-profit, Hartford Communities That Care, is run by a Cloud political supporter.
