Governor Ned Lamont and City Council President Aidee Nieves were on hand as Mayor Joe Ganim received his booster shot administered by Department of Public Health Commissioner Manisha Juthani, an infectious diseases physician at Yale School of Medicine.
Hizzoner was taking a little too much time filling out the associated questionnaire so Lamont gave him a little push: “Hurry up, Joe!” he declares in background.
Nieves, who’s expected to receive another two years as council president when the legislative body meets on Dec. 6, is next in line to be chief executive if something happens to the mayor.
During Nieves’ September primary for another council term, Ganim shares in the video, they were campaigning in her East Side district when she gave him a playful shove toward an oncoming car. In politics, it’s good to hedge your bets.
