Board of Education member Chris Taylor claims his bona fide address is 155 Davenport Street in Bridgeport’s East End and not Bronson Road in Fairfield. If that’s the case he’s residing there illegally in an industrial zone.
From Brian Lockhart, CT Post:
The tour of Chris Taylor’s apartment started with his small living room, then his bedroom, and ended in the bathroom, where toiletries, including an unopened hand soap, were arranged neatly on the sink.
“I organized it nice for you,” Taylor, 49, a retired contractor, joked with a Hearst Connecticut Media reporter when it was suggested the bathroom seemed almost suspiciously tidy and organized. “Couldn’t be staged better.”
That is the question at the heart of a just-launched state investigation of Taylor. Is the Republican school board member and one-time mayoral candidate’s Bridgeport address–a dormant recycling business at 155 Davenport St.–for show? Or does he really live with his mother in Southport, which would prohibit him from voting and holding elected office in Bridgeport?
That is what Democrat Maria Pereira, Taylor’s Board of Education colleague and frequent sparring partner, alleged in the voluminous case she built and submitted to the state Elections Enforcement Commission. The SEEC on April 17 authorized staff to launch a probe of Pereira’s allegations.
