GOV. MALLOY: EAST HAVEN MAYOR’S COMMENTS ARE “REPUGNANT” AND “UNACCEPTABLE”
 
(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today released the following statement in reaction to the racially insensitive comments by East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo:
 
“The comments by East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo are repugnant.  They represent either a horrible lack of judgment or worse, an underlying insensitivity to our Latino community that is unacceptable.  Being tired is no excuse.  He owes an apology to the community, and more importantly, he needs to show what he’s going to do to repair the damage he’s done.  And he needs to do it today.”
