Mayor Maturo is all talk and NO action!
On May 2012, when the New Haven Register addressed the community’s concerns to make the Shell Beach public access and sea wall safe, Maturo punted to his town engineer, Kevin White, who stated, “We are working with the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection now.”
One year later, DEEP confirmed that they had not heard from the Mayor’s or engineer’s office.
In October 2013, in response to the community’s continued protest, Maturo told the New Haven Register, “The town engineer gave me a report today stating he is in the process of applying to the DEEP to get permission to rebuild that wall, because we can’t do it without DEEP.”
More than a year & a half later, on November 1 2013, DEEP officer, Krista Romero, confirmed that there had been NO communication from the mayor’s office.
More than a year and & half has passed and despite people stumbling and falling at the sea wall and it continuing to crumble, Maturo has done NOTHING! Vote Maturo OUT on Tuesday!
