Connecticut’s mayors launched a pointed attack today on Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposed budget, saying the former mayor of Stamford is obscuring cuts to municipalities and usurping their authority by shifting state aid from discretionary to education grants.

It was a startling personal critique of Malloy’s second proposed biennial budget and a rebuke by a constituency that Malloy protected at significant political risk in his first budget, when he raised taxes by a record $1.5 billion rather than cut municipal aid.

With varying degrees of enthusiasm and a hint of trepidation, the bipartisan group accused Malloy of fiscal fraud, saying his budget’s prose sets priorities of economic development and education, while his numbers undermine them.

“When you read the budget, it’s completely different,” said Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, a Republican. “Black is white, white is black. You’re looking through the looking glass. Nothing is as it seems.”
