Rep. Chris Caruso, D-Bridgeport, who led opposition last week during the public whining session in opposition to the proposed DCF treatment and detention center on Bridgeport’s Virginia Avenue, today asked to meet with Gov. Rell on the issue. In a letter, signed by Sen. Anthony Musto, D-Trumbull, the duo asked for the governor to join them, the mayor, City Council members and neighbors to discuss the $36-million plan.
Caruso, in an interview, said there’s a chance that despite the plans for the 36,000-square-foot facility, the DCF might give up and find a site elsewhere.
Asked for a comment on the invitation, Adam Liegeot, a Rell spokesman, said: “Apparently, Rep. Caruso sent his letter to the media before sending it to Governor Rell. The governor is not in receipt of this request.”
