A local lawmaker is taking the Governor to task over his recent presentation to General Electric.
Ridgefield state Representative John Frey says a dozen states have made offers or presentations to Fairfield-based General Electric to move their headquarters. Frey told the Hartford Courant that Governor Malloy's presentation was "the least persuasive, the least interesting and the least prepared". Frey continued by saying that Connecticut's presentation was not well received, in part, because it features a picture of a jet engine built by competitor Pratt and Whitney.
Malloy's spokesman told the Courant that Frey was not in the room and probably has a second-hand account.
GE threatened to move when lawmakers approved massive tax increases in June.
