Itemized Receipt Of New Year’s Eve Dinner Surfaces; Includes Caviar

by Categorized: Jared Kupiec, Pedro Segarra, Purchasing Cards Date:

The Courant today received a copy of the itemized receipt for a New Year’s Eve dinner attended by the mayor, his chief of staff and seven others, which has drawn criticism.

Mayor Pedro Segarra has said he reimbursed a portion of the dinner, and his chief of staff, Jared Kupiec, said today that he would reimburse the remaining cost. The dinner, which cost $707, was charged to Kupiec’s city credit card.

An itemized receipt of the dinner shows that the attendees ordered caviar (for $110), oysters, rack of lamb and cheesecake, among other things. You can view the receipt here: p_20130506115732

The dinner was for eight people, Segarra has said, including himself; his spouse; Kupiec; a female guest of Kupiec’s; Chief Operating Officer Saundra Kee Borges; two members of the Hartford Police Department who were providing security for the mayor that evening; and an eighth person whom he could not recall. The meal was put on a city purchasing card because the group was working at First Night in Hartford, he said.

    Simply disgusting. Our towns are in millions of dollars of debt, our state is in billions of dollars of debt and our country is in trillions of dollars of debt. Democrats in Hartford are wishing away my future and the future of my children for thousand dollar steak dinners, just like Democrats on the national level are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars for a night at a hotel in Paris. I’m sick to my stomach.

    I love how politicians always say they will reimburse or return money… but only when caught. Segarra – living like the 1% on taxpayer’s money while the residents in his city beg for jobs and starve. Typical politician and completely out of touch.

    What do Democrats care about the public? Take a look around at Democrat controlled cities. The voters love to be scammed, shot at and dumped on. How dare you care about education!

    Repent- this is an absolute, I’m not in touch with the masses, Foca up .

    La majoria de nuestra gente sobreviva en menos de $5.00 dollares al dia, y voz (El Arcalde y su Gente) gastan ciento y pico, en huevos de un salmon.

    Varon, We are FKed w/your leadership, please resign.

    Oh come on people. Malloy, Segerra and the rest of the Dems have been wasting your money for years. And have thrown it around like it is yours and they have no worries about spending. This is a perfect example of why businesses don’t want to be be here to do business. Political entitlement mentality is rampant among the Dems because they know the voters will always turn out for them.
