To the Editor:
Members of the Trumbull Town Council are elected to represent the will of the people of Trumbull. That sounds pretty obvious, and it is the cornerstone of what defines our representative Democracy. In fact, it’s so obvious that we shouldn’t have to even say it. The recent actions of the council, however, seem to suggest that it isn’t that obvious to some of the council members. Instead, they decided to go directly against the will of the people and pass an ordinance to say that it is mandatory for the town to fully fund the annual required contributions to pensions (known as ARC) every year no matter what.
