Connecticut: Middletown anti-toll resolution says Gov. Ned Lamont’s tax plan will hurt the working class

Middletown officials are considering a resolution opposing highway tolls like a number of cities and towns have adopted across Connecticut, but this one is pointed in its criticism of Gov. Ned Lamont’s proposed budget, which it says is regressive and will harm the working class and small businesses.

The measure, introduced by common council member Gerald Daley, who is a Democrat like Lamont, contests whether the state’s wealthiest residents are paying their fair share under the governor’s budget proposal.
