Hartford's Independent Audit Commission plans to file an ethics complaint against Mayor Pedro Segarra for allegedly failing to "uphold city laws" and hire department directors within six months of appointing interim directors.
Hartford's Independent Audit Commission says it will file an ethics complaint against Mayor Pedro Segarra due to the mayor's alleged failure to "uphold city laws."
Specifically, the IAC accuses Segarra of failing to permanently hire department directors within six months of having employed them on an interim basis.
This reportedly violates a city ordinance that requires a formal hiring process in which department director candidates are vetted by the city council.
The mayor's office did not respond to a request for comment.
