Municipal leaders meet in Hartford; voice concerns over budget
By WFSB Staff
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -
Municipal leaders from across the state held a news conference Wednesday in Hartford to discuss Gov. Dannel Malloy's proposed budget.
Cities and towns are always concerned when cuts are proposed, and while Malloy said the money they will receive will be flat funded, city and town leaders disagree.
They're urging Malloy to not take away funding they depend on.
The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities took part in what's being called the Day on the Hill, and met with its state legislative delegations throughout the day to voice their concerns.
Some leaders in attendance included Torrington Mayor Ryan Bingham, Bridgeport Mayor William Finch, Mansfield Mayor Betsy Paterson, Bristol Mayor Art Ward, Litchfield First Selectman Leo Paul, East Hartford Mayor Marcia Leclerc and Connecticut Conference of Municipalities Executive Director Jim Finley.
Channel 3's Susan Raff will have a complete wrap-up starting on Eyewitness News at 5.
