And His Record Does Not Help The New Congressman ....

While this unfortunate incident occurred months ago, didn't Enfield Mayor Cocoa admit in an earlier statement to papers, that he likley made a gesture towards Mr Mancuso and his children @ the Enfield Shaw's?
One can only guess what that gesture was, but since Mayor Cocoa admitted this earlier, where's the confusion as to whether he "did this" or not.
Certainly appears that he was totally out of line to verbally attack anyone, anywhere. Especially with children involved. Take about a class-less act. He never ceases to amaze (what's amazing is that some Enfield folks were duped to have elected him to public office).
Trust me, not all State employees are like the former Enfield mayor.

Hard to believe. Wonder what Joe Courtney thinks about his ol'bud, Pat Tallarita? Probably not accepting any phone calls or invits from him these days. Would be political suicide to continue to be "buddy buddy" with such a loose cannon.

These issues, incidentally, have everything to do with why Courtney will likely lose Enfield in 2008.
Because of the turmoil with Mayor Tallarita, Courtney has pointedly avoided visits to Enfield, lest he have to share the stage. These visits point to a lack of care. Since he took over, Enfield hasn't gotten the attention it received when Rob Simmons was the Congressman.
Courtney has also done a very poor job with constituent services. His office has failed to address the concerns about issues and legislation that I have raised in various letters. The level of sloppiness is incredible. There have been instances when I wrote about one bill and got a reply about a completely different bill. This shows what our letters and emails are worth- absolutely nothing.
Enfield deserves better representation. We need a Congressman who remembers that his constituents are his customers, not a proletariat to be manipulated.
