First Selectman Timothy M. Herbst issued the following statement in response to comments made by the leadership of the Trumbull Democratic Town Committee:
Recently, the actions of the Chairman of the Trumbull Police Commission have become a matter of intense public concern. I completely understand and share in those concerns. Recently, I was presented by the media a press release from Trumbull Democrats. While I expect them to attack me, I find it deplorable that they would call into question the integrity of the Trumbull Police Department and the integrity of the Trumbull Ethics Commission.
