09/15/10 Greenwich Resident Tom Foley Asks,"Does Dan Malloy have a Problem Telling the Truth?"

Tom Foley for Governor
Dan Malloy’s latest taxpayer funded negative ad is untruthful and begs the question whether Malloy is loose with the truth.
Tom Foley saved the Bibb Company, a struggling textile company, he bought in 1985. Bibb employed over 3,000 more people in 1996 when he sold the business than when he bought it. There were never 2,000 jobs lost and Tom Foley never fired anyone at Bibb. When he sold the company he ensured that workers’ pensions and medical benefits were protected. When the new owners closed a plant in Columbus, Georgia two years later, Tom had nothing to do with the business. Tom Foley never made $20 million from the Bibb Company.
Dan Malloy is not only not being untruthful about Tom Foley’s record, he has been caught in a lie about his own. In his latest ads Dan Malloy claims he created thousands of jobs in Stamford, but the Bureau of Labor Statistics disagrees. According to Chris Keating of the Hartford Courant, the BLS shows that Stamford has lost 13,000 jobs since 2000 and has 5,000 fewer jobs than when Dan took office in 1995.
“On the campaign trail Dan Malloy says if he is governor he will tell us the truth. If that’s the case, he’s off to a very bad start. Dan’s misrepresenting my background and being caught in lie about his own seriously call into question his qualifications to be Governor.”
“Character counts in Connecticut. More than ever, Connecticut needs strong leadership it can trust. Dan Malloy’s latest ads sound like a typical career politician who will do and say anything to get elected. Connecticut needs more than that in its next Governor to set a new direction for the state, bring jobs and the economy back, and solve our daunting fiscal crisis without raising taxes,” said Tom Foley.
