8 mayoral hopefuls took the stage in Hartford Wednesday night.
The Democratic candidates for mayor faced off in a forum at the Hartford Public Library. Along them was current Mayor Luke Bronin. Former Mayor Eddie Perez was also there, trying to get his job back.
Nearly a decade ago, Perez resigned following his corruption conviction.
Perez said, “I bring the experience, the commitment, and most importantly a track record of getting the job done.”
Bronin said, “We’ve got a lot of work left to do. We’ve worked really hard over the last few years to bring our city from the brink of bankruptcy to a fragile stability.”
The forum was put on by the group, Hartford Votes.
