A Town Council vote of no confidence in the state budget process last Thursday became a political face-off between First Selectman Tim Herbst and the Democrat who will challenge him for the seat in November.
Town Council Democrat Vicki Tesoro, who represents District 3, voted against the symbolic vote of no confidence in Gov. Dannel Malloy’s and Democratic legislators’ handling of the state budget process, saying it was not in the Town Council's authority to take such a vote. The vote was passed by Republicans on the council, who supported the proposal put forth by Herbst.
