Your early UConn accomplishments seem to pale in comparison for us. Good try though
Please accept your defeat with dignity and stop the spin. We deserve better. Your time has come and gone.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE : Mayor Segarra releases first accomplishment in 50-day plan
July 28, 2015 : As a part of Mayor Segarra’s re-election campaign, the first point for his 50 Days of Accomplishment plan was released this afternoon.
The first accomplishment highlights a notable achievement for a younger Pedro E. Segarra: While in law school at the University of Connecticut, Segarra was a founding member of UCONN’s Latino Law Student Organization. He also served as the organization’s first president.
As a Puerto Rican, Mayor Segarra has oftentimes noted his pride in his heritage while serving in public life because of the perspective it has given him in how he approaches and solves problems. He was motivated to create this organization to give students like him a chance to develop connections in a supportive atmosphere.
“I wanted to create a positive and encouraging environment for other Latinos enrolled at the UCONN School of Law. By building each other up, we created a setting that motivated us to be our best,” Mayor Segarra said. “I am proud to see that is still thriving today.”
The group is still an active part of UCONN’s student life, and continues to offer academic and professional development programs. It serves as a community for many Latino and non-Latino students.
