South End Monument Honors Leo Pugliese

by J. Rossetti-Ford

Recently a monument to Leo Pugliese, a long time Hartford Democratic "Boss" and community activist, was dedicated at the intersection of Broad and White Streets and Maple Avenue in Hartford's South End. The inscription on the monument described Pugliese as "A splendid and good friend who gave 60 years of time, effort and affection to the people of Hartford and the State."

The memorial was funded by a gift from the Alexander A. Goldfarb Memorial Trust 1998.

Last Thursday, September 17, a few of the many friends of Pugliese left behind in Hartford's South End gathered to pay him homage.

"He was a man who cared deeply about people and had a very special quality that brought folks to the table to talk. He dedicated his life to helping others in a superior democratic effort," said former Deputy Mayor Robert F. Ludgin.

"I will always remember his kindness and how much he would do for anyone in our Hartford community. He was a man of his word. Leo had great pride in our democratic process," said former Democratic State Central Committee member William Barone.
