State Sen. Anthony Musto is demanding that First Selectman Timothy Herbst apologize and retract comments he made about him and the Trumbull Housing Authority last week. But that won't happen.
Musto, who has been the housing authority's attorney for 10 years, called Herbst's comments "defamatory, outrageous and filled with falsehoods" this week. Specifically, he took issue with Herbst's contention that the THA, which oversees the town's Stern Village housing complex, put politics ahead of people and engaged in a secret and illegal meeting to renew the contract of Stern Village Executive Director Harry Wise.
