With a political career that includes three terms in the state Senate and two stints as town treasurer, Anthony Musto is used to people trying to vote him out of office. Now, though, it appears his office is simply being taken from him. Literally.
Musto was informed by First Selectman Tim Herbst last week that his tiny Town Hall office is being taken over by the Economic and Community Development Department for use as a conference room. The town treasurer is primarily responsible for generating income by investing the town’s cash reserves. Musto defeated Republican John Ponzio to reclaim the position last year. He previously held the office from 2005 to 2009.
