I must say, that Dan Drew's administration looks like a complete farce. Who is pushing to put these people in their positions? Drew or the democratic powers pushers? Is Drew so blinded by his desire to be at the state level, rubbing elbows with Malloy, that he has lost all site of the dysfunction within the city? What an embarrassment and disappointment Drew is. All he is good at is using BIG words. But at least he doesn't stutter as bad as Malloy!ReplyDelete
