Get ready for the cannon fire. This mayoral race might require more ammo than all the arms and munitions buried on the grounds of the old Remington site.
Mayor Bill Finch’s Communication Director Brett Broesder is easygoing on the surface, but underneath rhetorical guns ablaze in a chivalrous defense of his boss against the expected candidacy of former Mayor Joe Ganim. Here’s a small taste for what’s on the heated horizon from Broesder, dubbed “the ministry of public enlightenment” by former City Councilman Tom White.
“It must be hard for Joe Ganim to watch an administration that is succeeding by creating jobs and making smart and sound investments in the future. Let’s be clear about who Joe Ganim really is: He’s a corrupt politician who ran a nearly $1 million criminal, pay-to-play scheme out of the Bridgeport mayor’s office.
“We’re all for second chances in life. But a corrupt politician shouldn’t be allowed to pick the pockets of taxpayers again. It’s common sense.”
