The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities (CCM) lauds Gov. Ned Lamont for the collaboration his administration has had with local governments across the state as the COVID-19 pandemic hit Connecticut; but it is also important to be able to criticize our leaders even when we think they are otherwise doing a great job and are our allies.
The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities strongly supports legislative efforts to reduce property tax reliance. We are appreciative that Gov. Dannel Malloy and legislative leaders have demonstrated their commitment toward finally addressing this outdated and overly burdensome tax system. The story, however, does not end there. Lost in the debate are details of significance to our local communities.
