Stefanowski Responds to More Cost Overruns On Scandal Ridden State Pier Project

May 26, 2022

Branford, CT– Bob Stefanowski, candidate for Governor of Connecticut, responds to yet more cost overruns on the scandal ridden State Pier project, that is under FBI investigation: 

“The Governor is ‘Mad as Hell’ at cost overruns, but he hasn’t done a damn thing about it,” said Stefanowski. “This is the same Governor who in February of 2020 said ‘Kosta’s got to deliver the goods… on time and under budget… We’re going to hold people’s feet to the fire to get it done.’”

“Now there’s an FBI investigation and the cost overruns are in the hundreds of millions of dollars. The cost overruns on the construction of the state pier in New London have gone from $93 million, to $157 million and now ballooned to $255 million.”

“If you were building a house and the cost went from $93,000 to $255,000, would you fire your builder? Well, for New London’s State Pier, the numbers are in the millions, and no one cares. Yes, a $255 Million taxpayer-funded contract wildly out of control, and Governor Lamont has done nothing.”
