Finch heads to Hartford Monday for hearing on Guv’s budget

From Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch’s weekly calendar…

Monday, March 4, 2013

  • 9 a.m. On Air with WICC
  • 10:30 a.m. Addressing Illegal Gun Trafficking with Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Sen. Chris Murphy, and Police Chief Joseph Gaudett, Mayor’s Conference Room, Margaret E. Morton Government Center, 999 Broad Street
  • 12 p.m. Connecticut General Assembly Public Hearing, Legislative Office Building, Room 2E, 300 Capitol Avenue, Hartford
  • 7 p.m. City Council Meeting, City Council Chambers, City Hall, 45 Lyon Terrace

Room 2E is where the legislature’s Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee will hold court on a handful of bills, including Gov. Dannel Malloy’s budget. You know, the one that Finch and other big city mayors hate.

Oh for those days when Malloy, fresh off of winning a razor-thin 2010 gubernatorial race with a big hand from Bridgeport, could count on Finch to support his fiscal policies.
