There comes a moment in one’s life when you must stand up for what is right and walk away from what is wrong. Last night was one of those moments.
Last night, I chose not to accept the nomination of the Democratic Town Committee because I am in this race for the people of Hartford and not the politics.
I will not stand by and let outsiders try to buy their way into office and take control of our city.
It would be an abomination for us to let political influence determine the character of Hartford that would be represented by someone who has never held political office nor advocated on behalf of the City of Hartford.
We will let the people decide and not a few political insiders trying to stack the deck in their favor.
Too much is at stake to hand over the reins to an outsider who has absolutely no experience to be Mayor and no real relationship with the people here.
Our campaign and the great people of Hartford will do everything to ensure the people’s victory on Sept. 16.
This election has always been about the people of Hartford.
Today, I walk with you.
Mayor Pedro E. Segarra, is  seeking a third term as mayor of Hartford, CT

  1. keep fighting your a mayor that cares about the people of Hartford you’re not like those Washington politicians part of Washington cartel that can be brought and pay for by lobbyist.

  2. I don’t know Pedro, Luke sure seemed to have relationships with the majority of the members of the Hartford Town Committee, which is the real reason you walked out, and not the righteous reasons you state.
    Your performance Monday had all the drama and none of the practical impact that has come to characterize your administration. So, thanks for creating that tidy little metaphor for everyone.
    And, please, stop with the divisive and embarrassing language that makes it sound like you’re defending the castle against an invading barbarian horde, and start talking about your next term could possibly suck less.
    “There comes a moment in one’s life when you must stand up for what is right and walk away…”
    Exactly.
