Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra has stuck by his now former chief of staff throughout months of challenges — including questionable spending and allegations of favorable treatment.
I’m on vacation (can’t you tell?) but this one was too important to pass up. It appears former Chief of Staff Jared Kupiec was driving a city car weeks after he left the city’s payroll. Here’s the statement from Segarra:
I was informed today that Jared Kupiec was using a city vehicle after the conclusion of his employment with the City of Hartford without authorization. I am deeply disturbed and disappointed by this news. We’re getting the facts and will act accordingly.
You won’t hear much more from me on this one until next week. But Brookman has written about it. And I’m sure others will, too.
