Statement from Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff on Norwalk School Construction Compromise

Norwalk, CT—Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) today released the following statement regarding an agreement on a five-year capital school construction plan:

“Our children deserve a first class education which is why I fought so hard for this compromise,” said Senator Duff. “Working together, we have been able to put forward a realistic plan that will result in Norwalk’s children being educated in an environment that is safe and conducive to learning. Building new schools, while ignoring the majority of our existing schools, was never the proper course. The revised plan addresses years of neglect and deferred maintenance. I want to thank all of the parents, teachers, staff, students and residents of Norwalk who reached out to me in support of fixing our current schools. Thanks to you, we are on a path to see real improvement.”
