Thank you, Waterbury, for being interesting this year.
Mayoral candidate J. Paul Vance Jr. (D) attacked Mayor Michael Jarjura (D) in a release to media today, accusing the incumbent of pursing the GOP nomination. Said Vance:
“I think it’s outrageous that the Mayor is attempting to seek this nomination,” said J. Paul Vance, Jr. “This is a classic example that the political old guard is alive and well in Waterbury and back room dealings are still rampant. Mike Jarjura’s actions show that he is willing to forsake his own party for political gain. He clearly cannot decide if he is a Democrat, Republican, or Independent – just as he cannot decide if he is a full-time land developer or full-time mayor.”
This is the first I’ve heard of Jarjura going for the GOP nomination.
