Claims city favors more expensive contractor
Leader Herald Staff Report
Mayor Carlo DeMari chased and chested bumped local contractor Peter Tufts following the contractor’s testimony to the council Monday night.
Tufts left the chamber after speaking briefly before the council.
He was speaking with the mayor’s chief of staff Erin Deveney at the top of the stairs on the third floor when the mayor accosted him.
“The mayor stormed up the stairs with his blue suit on. He’s pointing his finger at me.
“You f***ed me good. You f***ed me good,” the mayor repeated.
“He pointed his finger at me.”
“You know what you said,” the mayor complained bitterly.
Tufts said the mayor became more belligerent and out of control.
“Now he’s chest bumping me and then he says, ‘”“You’re another piece of s**t like Greg Antonelli.”’
The mayor apparently told Tufts he had to return to the city council chamber to do a swearing in of a police officer.
When the mayor came back out, he was spitting fire at Tufts.Continue reading Contractor chased, “chest bumped” and sworn at by enraged mayor
