GOP Gov Hopefuls Want More State Worker Concessions

Stamford—Four of Connecticut’s Republican gubernatorial contenders indicated today that they would ask unionized state employees to grant concessions in 2015 -– for the third time in seven years -– to help balance the budget.

Answering questions at a debate in Stamford, state Senate Minority Leader John McKinney of Fairfield, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, Avon attorney Martha Dean and Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti all said the state’s worsening budget deficit requires more worker sacrifices.

But he did say workers need to give back, and he predicted they would support concessions to stabilize the long-term future of their salaries and benefits.

Greenwich businessman Tom Foley, the GOP’s 2010 gubernatorial nominee and a candidate again in 2014, did not attend today’s debate, which was sponsored by the Business Council of Fairfield County, Cable News 12 and the Hearst Newspapers
