Trumbull Republican Town Committee Chairman Jack Testani on Tuesday called Democratic First Selectman candidate Martha Jankovic Mark the “single greatest threat to the taxpayers wallet” when highlighting her votes as a member of the Town Council concerning the Trumbull High School renovation.
“In this campaign, Mrs. Mark will try to pretend she is a fiscal conservative, but the fact of the matter is that she voted to spend 73 million dollars renovating Trumbull High School, without allowing the taxpayers to have their say,” Testani said. “In the recent Charter revision, process, Mrs. Mark voted against the provision that would allow taxpayers the right to decide capital projects in excess of $15 million dollars by way of a public referendum. Despite the fact that this was supported by 63% of the voters in 2011, Mrs. Mark did not agree. If elected, she will clearly implement her big spending agenda against the will of Trumbull taxpayers.”
