MAYOR BRONIN STATEMENT ON STATE SENATE PASSAGE OF S.B. 528

MAYOR BRONIN STATEMENT ON STATE SENATE PASSAGE OF S.B. 528

HARTFORD, CONN (May 5, 2018) –  This evening, Mayor Luke Bronin released the statement below after the bipartisan passage of S.B. 528. 

“Over the past two years, we have worked to face a massive fiscal crisis honestly, transparently, and directly,” said Mayor Bronin. “We have made deep cuts, our labor unions have stepped up in big ways, our business community has committed to Hartford’s future, and we have embraced the ongoing and intense scrutiny of the Municipal Accountability Review Board.

“Along with those steps at the local level, the assistance agreement between the city and the State makes it possible to put our city on more stable footing, as we work toward the long-term goal of true sustainability and strength.  

“Hartford’s fiscal crisis developed over decades, and it is rooted in the fact that Hartford is a city built on the tax base of a suburb.  It will take many years of discipline, growth, and continued partnership to achieve sustainable fiscal strength for our Capital City.  

“Last week, the Municipal Accountability Review Board voted overwhelmingly to approve our five year stability plan, and I’m deeply grateful to the legislators of both parties who voted tonight to support that five year plan.  Over the next five years, our budgets remain very tough and very tight, and if dramatic reductions were to be fully implemented after five years, it’s unlikely that Hartford would be able to sustain those cuts.  

“That said, I fully understand and respect legislators’ desire to revisit the agreement after five years, and my commitment is that we will continue to work hard to earn the confidence of our the legislature and the state as a whole as we move our Capital City in the right direction. 

“I’m particularly grateful to Hartford’s Senators John Fonfara and Doug McCrory, and to Senate leadership for their work in finding  a reasonable resolution, and for recognizing that stability is vitally necessary for growth.”
