Second To Nunn No More, Pricey Vehicles And Job Flattened

Andy Nunn, dethroned chief administrative officer under Mayor Bill Finch, had hoped a sea change would carry him to a permanent slot as director of the Port Authority, even authorizing more than $70k for two new vehicles. Nunn’s ship was grounded along the way. For Joe Ganim, this is a bit of déjà vu. As a candidate for mayor in 1991 he filleted incumbent Mayor Mary Moran’s taxpayer purchase of a new Buick Park Avenue sedan during the height of the city’s fiscal crisis. Ganim auctioned off the vehicle when he became mayor. CT Post reporter Brian Lockhart has more on this Nunn-sense.

Andrew Nunn was officially let go this week from his job running the Port Authority.

He left behind a pair of brand-new sport utility vehicles costing the city $72,458 that, though his future was cloudy, he had purchased for the job in late November.

“This is just one more thing of many that seems to be totally improper,” said Daniel Roach, head of city operations for returned Mayor Joseph Ganim. The administration is grappling with what it claims to be a $20 million deficit inherited from Mayor Bill Finch.

    The irony of it all is just too rich: a felon convicted of public corruption is re-elected and is taking to task his self-proclaimed “honest” predecessor for greed, avarice and spend-dizzy ways with public money.

      I hate to agree with you “Kid,” but I agree! Live and learn. Pieces of shit just like to take. I am curious what Andrew Nunn did for Finch in his re-election bid. Glad his ass is out! One more position for Ganim to fill. Why would he imagine he had a chance to keep his job and buy an expensive vehicle to boot? My eyes were opened and now I see!

    Let’s have a raffle for those two vehicles.

    *** Maybe the vehicles could be used for city management undercover work, watching, following and checking up on questionable city employees during work hours, no? *** POOTIE TANG MOBILE ***
