Waterbury Mayor Mike Jarjura may Leave Democratic Party

 

Waterbury Mayor Mike Jarjura is considering leaving the Democratic party and becoming a Republican.       The 5 term Democrat told me today he is disappointed his party is nominating someone else, and he is thinking of accepting overtures from the GOP to be their nominee.  

Jarjura told me he will make his final decision over the weekend, and announce his decision Tuesday.

  1. Democrat turned Republican is another fine mess. Perhaps Mike should heed the decision of his party. They don’t want him anymore. Time for somebody new.

    Why would the GOP want to run a turncoat unless it’s to keep the status quo in place!!

  2. Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please Please let this be true.

    Disgusting attacks on Kevin Lembo and an endorsement from the Family Institute? He disgusts me both on political and human levels.

  3. Jarjura has done a great job in Waterbury. He is even tempered, polite to all and has balanced the budget and improved the City. Why would voters take a risk on changing leadership when things are finally going well for Waterbury?

  4. He is desperate. Nothing has changed in Waterbury in the 10 years he’s been mayor. Same as his pal Rowland it’s all about “me me me”.

  5. I supported Mayor Jarjura in the primary last year. Asa delegate to the convention, I support Rep. Reynolds. When he withdrew, the mayor laid it on the line – the state is broke. At the same time, He explained that the fiscal situation in his city than it was when Giordano was mayor. The city is better off today, why change? In my opinion, he is being targeted because he ran a primary against the “chosen one” Lembo.

  6. I ask, does anyone really care what party these “officials” belong to? NOPE – just as long as they do their job, and he is NOT doing his. In the regular job market he would have been “FIRED” a long, long time ago…
