Calling the bluff on Duff

According to State Senator Bob Duff’s December 9 announcement, the State has approved — despite Connecticut’s financial woes and Gov. Ned  Lamont’s debt diet – a new $200 million Norwalk high school to be completed as early as 2023 with 80% state reimbursement, instead of our usual less than 35%. Unfortunately, information has now surfaced that indicates that this announcement was premature. In fact, the project is so tentative, it was unethical for our state senator to make such a promise and unwise for our local elected officials — our  mayor, Common Council and Board of Education — to rush to action.
