Remove Commissioner Haas from office

This petition had 30 supporters

Mayor Stewart’s Conservation Commissioner Ken Hass had threatened members of the community by threatening to expose private information that the city possesses on them including their allegedly nonpublic criminal and civil records in an attempt to embarrass them publicly in retaliation for publicly stating their opposing to the Tilcon deal.

It is regular practice for members of the Stewart administration as part of their public relations efforts to go online on a daily basis, type in search terms relating to current political topics on popular social media sites such as Facebook, and post comments on people’s private Facebook posts and other social media websites in an effort to gain a upper hand politically and to either stop or at least discredit any opposition to their political agendas.

Ken Haas is not in a position to continue to serve in the Stewart administration. He had experienced a serious lapse in character judgment last night. He had publicly threatened to embarrass members of the community by saying he is willing to reveal personal records kept on them by the city government in an effort to politically retaliate against for publicly opposing the Tilcon agreement.  This sort of behavior – harassment, threats, and scare tactics by members of the Stewart administration including Ken Haas – is unacceptable ,and we cannot allow them to continue to make excuses such as “my account was hacked” in an attempt to avoid taking any responsibility. We must and we will hold them accountable. If we fail to hold Ken Haas accountable, this will only enable other members of the Stewart administration to continue to threaten, bully, and harass members of the public. This sort of behavior will endanger the democratic process, and will undoubtedly lead to widespread corruption and fear amongst the community. We must not allow that!

I believe that Ken Haas must either resign or be removed from office by Mayor Stewart. No member of the community should ever have to feel scared, threatened, or belittled for stating their personally views online.The people of New Britain do not deserve this, and no person should live in fear for publicly opposing a political initiative of the Mayor or from holding and sharing their personal views on their personal social media pages.
