A Background On Rational Programs In
Testa, whose restaurant hosted Ganim’s fundraiser, said he did not know Kayo well and could not recall talking with him about the ethics board. Ganim referred a question about whether Kayo should resign from the ethics board to City Attorney R. Christopher Meyer . Meyer on Thursday said no one has asked him about Kayo’s situation or whether Kayo could be forced off of that commission. “My first inclination when someone is arrested is ‘innocent until proven guilty’,” Meyer said. “We live in America.” But Jeff Kohut , a former ethics board member, said Kayo has to go, and Ganim has the authority to remove him. Kohut said whatever ultimately happens with Kayo’s arrest, the public’s perception of the ethics body has been compromised. And Kayo’s controversies do not help Bridgeport’s image with the rest of the state as a city of bizarre, if not outright corrupt, politics. For example, writer and radio host Colin McEnroe , in a column for the Hartford Courant , took comic note of Kayo’s situation: “This whole mess may affect Kayo's position on the Bridgeport Ethics Commission , although personally I don't see why.” Kayo said he has no plans to resign his ethics seat. He claimed the information in the Stratford police report was false.
