December has been a month of bad surprises from the Malloy administration, adding that the latest notification of cuts to education funding takes the cake by coming only one day before the money was supposed to be sent to towns.
The holidays are supposed to be a time of giving and promise. Instead, these drastic cuts to education funding in the middle of the fiscal year is another rotten apple from Gov. Malloy’s bag of bad gifts. Last minute cuts to schools and $30 million freeze in money promised to municipalities continues a sadly predictable trend. The governor is a Scrooge to our communities and children, while playing Father Christmas to state employee unions. Happy New Year indeed!
