TEAM Westport Chair Clears Up ‘Misperceptions’ on CNN

WestportNow.com Image
Harold Bailey, chair of Westport’s diversity committee TEAM Westport, told CNN interviewer Michael Smerconish today he wanted to clear up some “misperceptions” about the group’s white privilege high school essay contest that has attracted national attention. First, he said, he did not author the essay prompt. It was done by committee, he said. Second, another misperception was that it sparked “outrage” in the community. Not so, said Bailey. In fact, he said it has gotten “tremendous support” from clergy, educators and ordinary citizens. See full interview HERE. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) WestportNow.com photo from CNN

Legislators Begin to Push Back on Malloy’s New Budget

By Keith M. Phaneuf

www.ctmirror.org

The General Assembly today began its review of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s new two-year budget with a strong, bipartisan pushback from the Appropriations Committee.

Lawmakers challenged proposals to reallocate local aid, open nonprofit hospitals’ real property to municipal taxation, continue dedicating some sales tax revenues to transportation, and close 40 percent of next year’s deficit with state employee concessions.

Malloy, who met with Capitol reporters at a separate news conference, said legislative resistance comes as no surprise.

The governor, who highlighted several key aspects of his plan in the days leading up to its full presentation on Wednesday, acknowledged there are a lot of difficult choices.
