Bob Duff high school?

On Dec. 9 of last year, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff hosted a surprise press conference surrounded by state and local Democrats Lucy Dathan, Chris Perone, Mayor Harry Rilling and others.  Senator Duff stood next to a sign that read: A Brand New Norwalk High School.  According to an article in the Norwalk Hour, Duff and other officials familiar with the project said, “an agreement had been negotiated with the state to provide an 80 percent reimbursement, more than double the roughly 33 percent the state normally offers on school building projects.” If you care about the truth AND your taxes, know this: right now there is no plan for a brand new Norwalk High School, and there is no plan for 80% reimbursement by the state.
