Kennelly Seeks to Lead Hartford Charter Revision Commission. Brinson Considers Challenge.
Former Hartford City Council member and unsuccessful mayoral candidate John Kennelly wants to serve as the chairman of the city’s charter revision commission. Kennelly, who has been dealing with a February arrest for drunk driving, is one of 11 members of the commission.
With Mayor Pedro Segarra mired in contradictions on Hartford’s fiscal policies, this would seem a bad time to add to the tumult that is Kennelly’s constant companion. Kennelly has contacted other members of the commission seeking votes. Hartford political veteran Bruce Rubenstein has also been making calls to see where members stand. One of those fielding calls is former Republican council member Corey Brinson. He told Daily Ructions that he may make a bid for the chairmanship in an effort to bring peace to the warring factions taking shape on the commission.
