Three weeks from a Democratic primary for mayor, State Senator Marilyn Moore wants incumbent Joe Ganim to fire Police Chief AJ Perez for poor performance, but if she wins the mayoralty she declares antithetically “I would make him do his job. I’d give him a chance.”
CT Post reporter Brian Lockhart has more:
“Put somebody in the position that knows what they’re doing,” Moore said during a meeting Tuesday with Hearst Connecticut Media’s editors.
But she also admitted that, because he has a contract, terminating Perez may be easier said than done.
Moore is challenging Ganim for his job. The two are competing in a Sept. 10 Democratic Party primary and are scheduled to appear together Wednesday night at a 7 p.m. mayoral forum at the Klein Memorial Auditorium.
