Sources: Kee Borges Applies For Bloomfield Job

Saundra Kee Borges, the city’s corporation counsel who served as the interim chief operating officer for several months, has applied for a job as the Bloomfield town manager, sources with knowledge of the situation said.

Kee Borges was among 15 semifinalists selected for the seat, but did not make the short list of finalists, sources said.

The town is seeking a replacement for Louie Chapman, who left in April to become city manager in Delray Beach, Fla. Chapman was town manager in Bloomfield for nearly 20 years.

Former longtime Avon town manager Phil Schenck has been serving as interim town manager.

Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra in March named Kee Borges Hartford’s new chief operating officer, replacing David Panagore, but her appointment lacked the support of the city council (which must approve it). Segarra later withdrew Kee Borges’ nomination at her request.

Kee Borges has been wrapped up in some negative news about the city lately. She was one of eight people who took part in a $700 New Year’s Eve dinner at Max Downtown. She, Segarra and others dined on caviar, rack of lamb and oysters and charged the meal to a city credit card.

Kee Borges, a former Hartford city manager, left her city post in 2002 but returned in 2010 for the corporation counsel position.

Kee Borges could not immediately be reached for comment Monday.
