Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr.
After the FBI arrested four police officers, Mayor Joseph Maturo was asked what he would do for the local Latino community. He replied that he might “eat tacos.”
Community organizers in East Haven say they expect hundreds of people to turn out for a weekend march calling attention to allegations of police discrimination toward Latinos.
Less than a week after four of his police officers were arrested on federal charges of violating the civil rights of Latinos, East Haven Police Chief Leonard Gallo has resigned.
Mayor Joseph Maturo Jr. has apologized several times but resisted calls for his resignation over remarks he made to a television reporter.
