NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk Democratic mayoral candidates Vinny Mangiacopra, Matt Miklave, Andy Garfunkel and Harry Rilling answer this question posed by Norwalk Democratic Town Committee member Susan Wallerstein at the recent NDTC mayoral forum: “Since Norwalk doesn’t have a city manager, mayors have created different kinds of second-in-command positions besides city clerk. Bill Collins hired someone with a city manager back ground, Alex Knopp brought in Attorney Ed Schmidt, Dick Moccia hired a grant writer and used redevelopment money to hire Tad Diesel. What are your plans, and why?”
Hospital mergers are pretty much always bad. We should oppose this one.
