Is A Milford Legislator Proud of Allowing Long Island Sound To Get Polluted Or Does He Not Know What He's Talking About?
Richard Roy, now heading into an eighth term as Democratic representative for the 119th district, saw an even larger margin in his win over challenger Kevin Liddy according to early results Tuesday.
"I am delighted by the results," Roy said. "This validates what I accomplished as chairman of the House environmental committee, especially as this pertains to Long Island Sound …."
Consider that Long Island Sound is in pretty bad shape. While some improvements in water quality have been made, the pace of improvement has slowed, and part of the reason is that the State of Connecticut has all but abandoned the cleanup. Richard Roy should know that this is not merely my assertion. A recent report by the Connecticut State Legislature’s Office of Legislative research concurs.
So I guess that’s what Richard Roy is proud of.
Either that or he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
