Hartford Mayor to Give State of City Address

HARTFORD — Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra will give a state of the city address on Monday before the Court of Common Council in City Hall.

In his second adress after being elected last November, Segarra will highlight the city’s recent accomplishments, “truths” and challenges that face the  community in the coming year, officials said.

“Tomorrow evening, I want to share with the people of Connecticut’s capital city our truths, and share with them the ways we can build on all that is positive in our city,” Segarra said.

The address will be followed by a public hearing and a City Council meeting on the second floor.

In other matters, Segarra has asked the city council to enter into an executive session to discuss the Rahshim Campbell lawsuit against the city. Campbell is a former police officer, who was fired in December 2010.

That’s because an internal  investigation by a three-member panel said in a report that Campbell was caught on camera beating a suspect in custody in 2009. Campbell was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and tampering with physical evidence.

He was acquitted in May 2011.
