A month has come and gone since Ansonia Mayor David Cassetti identified two men he wants to fill vacancies on the city’s Board of Aldermen — without any action by Aldermen.
And now new names are emerging as replacements.
After a meeting last week, board President Phil Tripp handed out the resume of a third man to reporters and sang the man’s praises, but stopped just short of officially endorsing him.
He downplayed any notion of a rift between himself and the mayor over the appointments, saying it’s up to the rest of the board to decide who fills the slots.
