State representative Hector Robles has been fired by the Hartford Police Department. The Democrat was under investigation for much of this year and accused of falsifying time cards at HPD.
The Republican party and the Working Families Party chose not to challenge Robles for re-election this year, so he is on the ballot tomorrow unchallenged.
