Bridgeport council seeks power to recall mayor


The hits keep coming for Joe Leiberman's friend, Bridgeport Mayor John Fabrizi. Now it seems that the city's council wants the power to recall the mayor.

City leaders have formed a special committee to recommend reforms in light of Bridgeport Mayor John M. Fabrizi's confession that he used cocaine while in office.

Bridgeport City Council President Andres Ayala Jr. appointed the committee's members Monday.

It is expected to review a provision in the city charter that could allow for recall of the mayor, although questions remained about whether it would conflict with state regulations.

The group will also review whether to adopt a strict city policy on drug use, including whether it should be deemed an ethics violation under city ordinances.

Fabrizi said he would "absolutely" consider suggestions made by the council, but noted that "they don't set policy."
