State Senator Matt Lesser Releases Statement Following the Resignation of Comptroller Lembo

This morning, state Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown) is releasing the following statement after Comptroller Lembo announced his resignation.

“Comptroller Lembo is an extraordinary public servant and a close friend. It’s been an honor to partner with Kevin on many issues over the years, none more important than our unfinished work of making sure that health care is a right and not a privilege.

Kevin has bolstered our state’s fiscal position – and perhaps more than any other single person deserves credit for Connecticut’s record rainy day fund. He’s been unafraid to stand up to special interests, and has taken on drug prices, retirement security and budget transparency. I am grateful for his friendship and service and wish him the very best.”
