Lamont to answer public questions on tolls

From Stamford Advocate.

Gov. Ned Lamont will make several public appearances this week to take questions from constituents over his proposed transportation plan, which includes controversial highway tolls.

Lamont will take call-in questions on WNPR’s Where We Live at 9 a.m. Tuesday, and on WTIC 1080 AM at 8 a.m. Thursday. The governor and Transportation Commissioner Joseph Giulietti will also attend a town hall forum in Westport Sunday.

The forum, hosted by state Sen. Will Haskell, D-Westport, and state Rep. Jonathan Steinberg, D-Westport, was scheduled following a weekend uproar over an email from a pro-tolls activist group that suggested their members keep the forum, originally in the works for Tuesday, a secret. Toll’s opponents have accused Lamont of conspiring with the local group to keep opponents away from the forum, but they have not cited any evidence.

Note from MTAC: Members are encouraged to attend the forum on Sunday, January 12 at 4:00 pm. The location is Bedford Middle School, 88 North Avenue, Westport, CT.
