James J. Finley, Executive Director and CEO of the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities (CCM), issued the following statement on the energy strategy unveiled earlier today (Friday, Oct. 5) by Governor Malloy.
“Governor Malloy’s focus on driving down the cost of electricity and heat was right on target because these energy costs are a real burden for cities and towns – and their property taxpayers,” said Finley. “We also applaud his focus on energy efficiency because investments in efficiency are an effective way to bring down energy bills. The policy development strategy outlined by the Governor will generate tangible initiatives that can help local governments reduce their high energy costs associated with delivering programs and services to their residents and businesses – and that is something local officials welcome. “
