BRIDGEPORT - Voters spoke out Wednesday about the racially charged message between two city council members.

Councilman Bob Walsh, a Caucasian man, left a voicemail to fellow council member M. Evette Brantley who is African-American. In the message, he mocked the way she thanked developers for letting council members visit a tour site.

One resident near Bridgeport?s 132nd district, which is represented by Walsh and Brantley, says he is discouraged from voting for Walsh after learning of his remarks. Others say they?ll wait for the other side of the story before they form an opinion.

Walsh says he has attempted to get in touch with Brantley but she hasn?t returned his calls.
