Segarra, Ritter Point Finger At Oz Griebel

By Jeff Cohen

May 10, 2012

Iíve just finished interviewing Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra and State Rep. Matt Ritter.

When I asked both of them why the tax bills that could have generated $8 million in revenue for the city failed, they each pointed a finger squarely at regionís chamber of commerce ó The MetroHartford Alliance ó and its leader, R. Nelson ďOzĒ Griebel. When I asked Segarra whether he had a chance to speak with Griebel, he said he hadnít ó and he needs some time to calm down before he does.

Iíve put in my own call to Griebel. Iím sure weíll hear back. Iíll be speaking with Griebel later this afternoon. More today on the blog and tonight on the air.
