The Democrats are trying to create a story where there is none. I recently sent a non public email to the First Selectman regarding a possible conflict of interest involving one of the members of the P&Z. I did not send out a press release, I did not file a Freedom of Information request. I just asked a simple question. What happened next was quite remarkable.
Myself and the Republican Party were accused of mudslinging and sending out fliers regarding the first selectman. They even sought outside legal advice before answering my simple question. If they knew there was no conflict, why did they need a legal opinion? Clearly they wondered whether it was a concern.
