Little more information has surfaced from last week’s Waterbury Republicans Independence Day Dinner, where former Gov. M. Jodi Rell allegedly expressed dissatisfaction with Gov. Dannel Malloy’s leadership.
Malloy has credited his predecessors with the $3.6 billion deficit he met when he was elected governor in 2011, but CT Post reported Rell called those statements “lies” at the June 25 dinner.
Twitter user @WaterburyGOP tweeted at 7:33 p.m. on June 25, “Gov. Rell thoroughly eviscerating @DanMalloyCT @GovMalloyOffice claims of "turning the state around". This is the Jodi we all know and love!”
CT Post reported Rell blamed the deficit on the Democratic-controlled legislature, and many in attendance at the dinner crowd agreed with her sentiments.CT Post article about Rell’s speech at the Waterbury Republicans Independence Day Dinner.
Who do you think is responsible for the 2011 deficit?
