In 2007, there were about six or seven candidates at this point in the race for mayor of Hartford, and right now for 2011 there are four, including Mayor Pedro Segarra. This Sunday on Face the State, we talk with Edwin Vargas, a former teacher.
Vargas is no stranger to city politics. He ran unsuccessfully last year against State Senator John Fonfara. During our interview Vargas talked about why he wants to be mayor, why he believes the current mayor needs to be replaced, and the former mayor Eddie Perez.
Tune in this Sunday at 11 for Face the State.
We’ll also talk about all things legislative with three esteemed journalists: Mark Pazniokas of the Connecticut Mirror, Rick Green of the Hartford Courant, and Brian Lockhart of the Stamford Advocate. What a trio to make me look smart!
