With attempts to remove eleven residents from a 9-bedroom home on Scarborough Street underway, the family gathered today in City Hall to strike back.

The 68 Scarborough attorney, Peter Gosselin, said that his clients  instructed him to file a lawsuit in federal district court, alleging that their constitutional rights have been violated. This was filed this morning.

Additionally, they will be filing an injunction to prevent accruing fines until a court ruling is made. If this is not granted, they can be fined $100-250 per day or face ten days of imprisonment.

As became clear yesterday, attempts to amicably resolve the issue have gone nowhere.

Mayoral Campaign 2015: John Gale

John Gale was at Max Bibo’s early, having a pistachio muffin and a coffee. The New York Times was on the table, folded. He put his phone aside, but did answer when one of his daughters called and told her she’d be getting that call returned later. Continue reading 'Mayoral Campaign 2015: John Gale'»

Mayoral Campaign 2015: Joel Cruz, Jr.

Joel Cruz, Jr. walks into Mozzicato’s on a Monday afternoon, immediately greeting waitstaff in a way that suggests this is not his first time here. He apologizes to me for being late by four minutes; it’s early rush hour, when being late by four minutes is the equivalent of arriving early. He orders a water, and when pressed, a giant slice of cake. He never takes his phone out once. Continue reading 'Mayoral Campaign 2015: Joel Cruz, Jr.'»

Mayoral Campaign 2015: Luke Bronin

I arrived at his home a few minutes early on a Sunday evening. The children were in bed. No television or radio on. He drank a glass of water. He checked his phone once and told the caller he was busy. Continue reading 'Mayoral Campaign 2015: Luke Bronin'»

Moylan: Moving or Not?

The fight to keep Moylan Montessori in Hartford has gotten confusing.

There have been claims that Mayor Segarra is promising that Moylan will remain in the city. A petition website says as much.

Nothing has yet been brought to the Board of Education. In January, the BOE voted to allow for property price negotiations for a potential site in West Hartford. This resolution is still in effect, despite an announcement weeks ago that Thom Deller was looking at other sites in Hartford.

Where did the Segarra rumors come from? It seems that through Linda Bayer, this announcement was made at a recent NRZ meeting.
