You want plain talk? Engage a conversation with Democratic Town Committee member Jorge Cruz, a candidate for City Council in the 131st district covering the South End, Downtown and portion of the West End. Cruz, a supporter of Mayor Joe Ganim, attended the mayoral forum Wednesday night at the Klein Memorial Auditorium. In the expletive-filled video above and in a Facebook post Cruz rails against no forum questions covering issues very personal to him in both his past and in his current role helping substance abusers.
This FORUM was very disappointing and BORING AS HELL … They asked the same old same old boring questions that are asked by panels on debates and FORUMS TIME AFTER TIME … IT WAS A WASTE OF TIME. Though I Respect EACH candidate on the stage and their answers to various QUESTIONS I left the Forum pissed off.
Out of the ten QUESTIONS NOT ONE QUESTION regarding Substance abuse Treatment, was asked, not ONE QUESTION REGARDING HOMELESSNESS WAS ASKED, GUN VIOLENCE. When I tried to get an answer from the panel when I tried to ask them WHY you didn’t asked a DAMN QUESTIONS about the suffering addicts they shamefully walked away from me.
It dawned on me that these people just don’t give a DAMN about the people suffering in BRIDGEPORT CT. SHAME ON THEM. These people that plan THESE forums are completely disconnected from the REAL ISSUES FACING THE PEOPLE. It goes to show that they’re complicit along with society in compounding the stigma that many of My brothers and sisters in Recovery have to live with EVERY DAY of their lives.
But once I got home it really dawned on me that those of US running for City councilor must take the Mayor out the equation because this RESPONSIBILITY falls on the hands of the city COUNCILORS who who lives in the district and wants to REPRESENT the district must be the strong Advocates to highlight the needs of people are suffering addicts and Homelessness.
Ladies and gentlemen that is why I’m running for City Councilman for the 131st District. I’m passionate and I will be that STRONG VOICE. YOU WON’T SHUT ME DOWN WHEN I’M FIGHTING AND SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER. These people are in TOTAL DENIAL of the suffering out HERE. That’s why I’m asking for your support and VOTE LINE A ALL THE WAY for me yours Truly Jorge Cruz and Denesetaylor Moye on September 10th. We are not afraid of confronting those in top positions. We will rattle their comfort zone and ruffle their feathers. Thank you.
