Gov. Malloy’s Transportation Commissioner James Redeker took his Chicken Little routine on the road recently. In each community, he proclaimed that the Special Transportation Fund sky is falling and only tolls and tax increases can save us.
Gov. Malloy set the stage for Redeker’s appearances last week when he announced the indefinite suspension of nearly 400 repair and improvement projects. It seems he intends to maximize commuters’ pain as a way to lower their resistance to giving the state even more money than they do already.
