First Selectman Tim Herbst continued his political assault on Gov. Dannel Malloy this week, despite the fact that Malloy has announced that he will not seek re-election. Herbst reacted to Malloy’s announcement by expanding his rhetoric to include all state Democrats.
"The end of the Malloy era is welcome news for those who believe in opportunity for our citizens, low taxes and fiscal responsibility," Herbst said. "But make no mistake, any Democrat who has held public office during Malloy's tenure or supported this governor's job-crushing agenda owns an equal share of the blame for our state's perpetual fiscal crisis and the ruinous policies that have so hurt struggling Connecticut families, retirees and businesses.”
