LETTER: You can’t have it both ways Mr. Tymniak

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor:

You can’t have it both ways, Chris.

For months you’ve told voters they should choose you because as the Town Manager in Ansonia (for less than two years) you are responsible for a zero tax increase — achieved by spending down 20% of Ansonia’s surplus to meet their actual 3% budget increase. Never mind that Ansonia is now the 2nd most distressed town in CT — after being rated 7th. Or that 50% of Ansonia’s revenue comes from the State of CT, putting the town on a clear path to bankruptcy should that revenue be reduced.

Now, in a recent television interview on News Channel 12, near the end, you’re telling voters you’re really not the person responsible for all those financial decisions in Ansonia after all. That it’s the mayor.

Which is it?

You say your work in Ansonia is the experience that you bring to the First Selectman’s job — did you make these financial decisions or not?
