Looney, Duff, Maroney & Winfield Statement on West Haven Audit

Today, Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff, State Senator James Maroney (D-Milford, Orange, West Haven, and Woodbridge), and State Senator Gary Winfield (D-New Haven and West Haven) released the following statement in response to the recently released audit of federal CARES Act spending in the city of West Haven.

“We are outraged by the findings of the recent audit of West Haven’s spending of federal CARES Act funding. We expect that increased oversight by the state’s Municipal Accountability Review Board will significantly limit local spending discretion and provide much-needed change and accountability. Mayor Rossi and West Haven city government must ensure that those responsible for fiscal mismanagement are held accountable. The hard-working people of West Haven deserve better.”
