Letter — Why did Democrats change position?

To the Editor:

Last Monday night I sat in amazement as the Trumbull Town Council repealed ordinances that were passed just a few months ago by unanimous bipartisan approval.

One ordinance prevented past Trumbull employees from serving on their own pension boards and the other ordinance prevented retired town employees from coming back to work for the town and double dipping.

hat could have happened in the past two months to change the minds of the Democrats who served on the Council in the last term to suddenly reverse their position and now think these are good ideas? Amazing! There must be some ulterior motive for such a reversal of policy. So much for the promise of transparency and open governance.
