City Councilwoman Eneida Martinez, in response to an OIB story regarding comments she made about two city lawyers enforcing collections on behalf of the Water Pollution Control Authority, issued this statement on her Facebook page:
What did I violate? Am I opening or exposing the coalition of CORRUPTION that has been going on in the City of Bridgeport for decades with properties taken from the hard working elders or hard working families. I will not apologize for exposing truth to the public. Our youth hang with a clic and wear colors they are automatically labeled as gangsters or gang affilated. Stand at a block with a bunch of people, you are labeled as a hustler. But in the eyes of the law of Bridgeport it’s okay for the employees of the City of Bridgeport Attorney Office to refer all the City business WPCA FORECLOSURES business to one source because of the connection and foundation building. I am not going to sugar coat a level of corruption that destroys the lively hood of the Constituents that elected me to represent them.
BASH ME BUT I WILL FULFILL MY DUTIES…I WILL FIGHT FOR JUSTICE OF ABUSE….
