Sometimes a little sunshine disinfects


As Berlin goes, so goes New Haven?

No money for commie headquarters in New Haven. Not in this year’s budget, anyway. I’m sure they’ll be back, but in this war, we have to to take it one battle at a time.

A proposal to use state money for a New Haven community center that includes a tenant affiliated with the Communist Party was blocked Monday following objections from two Republican leaders as well as veterans.

The $300,000 in state bond money for improvements to the New Haven Peoples Center had been opposed by state Sen. Andrew Roraback, R-Goshen, and state Rep. Sean Williams, R-Watertown because the building houses a bureau of People’s World, a Communist Party newspaper. They said the state shouldn’t fund any project that is connected to partisan group.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who runs the State Bond Commission panel, said Monday that panel members would not vote on it because of the controversy surrounding the renovation project, as well as push back from veterans.
