MAYORS BRONIN, GANIM, AND HARP REACT TO GOVERNOR MALLOY’S FY 2017 MIDTERM BUDGET ADJUSTMENTS (MAYORS OF LARGEST CONNECTICUT CITIES MEET AT STATE CAPITOL TO DISCUSS IMPACT OF BUDGET CUTS, FOCUS ON COMMON AGENDA)

(Feb 3,2016)- Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin joined Mayors Joe Ganim of Bridgeport and Toni Harp of New Haven today at the State Capitol in Hartford to discuss the impact of the fiscal year 2017 midterm budget adjustments announced by Governor Dannel P. Malloy.  The mayors discussed forming a common legislative urban agenda, and the potential impact of budget cuts proposed by Governor Malloy.  While the full impact of the budget cuts on each municipality is still being analyzed, the three mayors issued the following, joint statement on the budget:
 
“Connecticut cities, already limited in their capacity to generate revenue, depend on state assistance to bridge a gap created by significant property tax-exemptions built into state law.  Our cities can thrive or merely survive depending on funding levels of municipal aid programs.  We will meet with the Governor and legislators in the weeks ahead to champion inclusion of critical aid to Connecticut’s three largest cities and all municipal governments.”
