Dear Readers: HERE IS THE LATEST FROM TEAM FOLEY:BOUGHTON:
MALLOY: STATE EMPLOYEE UNIONS ON HIS CAMPAIGN PAYROLL
$4,000 Consulting Fee to SEIU
Recent filings by the Malloy campaign with the State Elections Enforcement Commission reveal Dannel Malloy has paid a $4,000 consulting fee to the SEIU http://files.smartcommunicator.net/customers/192/file/SEEC30_October_10_Filing_7698%20pg%2036.pdf – a state employee labor union. Throughout the campaign Malloy has denied that he has made any special deals with state employee unions in exchange for their support, but this recent filing shows labor unions are not only working hard for Dannel Malloy – he is paying them.
This special relationship raises serious questions about Malloy’s ability to negotiate on behalf of the taxpayers with union leadership. How can he negotiate the best deal for taxpayers when he is on the same side as the labor leaders he is paying for their support?
“Dannel Malloy’s relationship with union leadership is strong and deep despite his denials. The next governor is going to have to negotiate with organized labor to fix our state’s problems. Dan has sent clear signals that he will be unable to conduct those negotiations on behalf of the taxpayers of Connecticut, because he has made so many commitments to union leadership,” said Justin Clark, campaign manager for Tom Foley. “It is another reason to be concerned about Dannel’s plan to raise taxes. If he can’t reduce costs, he will have to raise taxes on Connecticut residents at all levels and by a lot.”
