The article is generally reliable and trustworthy, as it provides factual information about the events that have taken place between Mayor Justin Elicker and Alder Darryl Brackeen. It also provides quotes from both parties which adds credibility to the article. However, there are some potential biases present in the article which could affect its trustworthiness and reliability. For example, the article does not provide any counterarguments or perspectives from other sources such as political analysts or experts on public education in New Haven. Additionally, there is no mention of any risks associated with Elicker's handling of public education in New Haven which could be seen as a form of one-sided reporting. Furthermore, while the article does provide quotes from both parties involved, it does not explore any possible motivations behind their decisions which could lead to an incomplete understanding of the situation at hand. Finally, there is no mention of any other candidates running for mayor in this year's election which could be seen as promotional content for Tom Goldenberg's campaign.
