To the Editor:
I am writing in response to a letter from Jack Testani, chair of the Trumbull Republican Town Committee, that appeared in the Times. In an election year you can expect each side to paint their actions in the most favorable light and, in doing so, stretch the truth a bit. Mr. Testani’s letter contains many of these exaggerations and in some cases, complete fabrications. However, one obnubilated comment he made needs to be corrected as it could lead the public into a false sense of complacency. I refer to his comment that the pension problem in our community has “been addressed.” That is wrong and in fact, under the current administration, has gotten worse.
