I’ve covered Robert Genuario in his capacity as state budget director, a Republican state Senator from Norwalk and as a zoning attorney appearing before that city’s land use agencies.
And I cannot recall ever witnessing the mild-mannered Genuario storming out of anything.
But according to a press release issued by state unions, Genuario is, behind closed doors, one angry guy. Apparently he and other members of the Governor’s staff “stormed out” of a planned meeting with labor leaders yesterday on an early retirement proposal.
“Governor’s Agents Storm Out After Failing to Produce Analysis of Impact to Services, Costs to Pension Plan of Latest Retirement Incentive,” read the union press release.
Wow. I bet members of the legislature’s Judiciary Committee wish they’d been aware of Genuario’s penchant to fly off the handle earlier this week when they approved his nomination to the bench by Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell.
Sounds like the Judicial Branch needs to do some budget tweaking to prepare for all of those wooden gavels this tyrant-of-a-man is bound to be breaking after he’s sworn in …
