Tesei says Blankley would run Greenwich like a "dictatorship"

GREENWICH, CT October 21, 2011 – Greenwich First Selectman candidate John Blankley today called on First Selectman Peter Tesei to take accountability and apologize for comments he made at the Byram Neighborhood Association's debate in which Tesei suggested Blankley would run the town like a "dictatorship" should he win the seat on November 8th.

"Mr. Tesei's outrageous accusation that I plan to govern the Town of Greenwich as the 'dictator' of a 'regime' is completely out of line," said Blankley. "I demand an apology from Mr. Tesei who, as First Selectman, should show the common sense and responsibility to own up to the absurd and offensive nature of these remarks which have no place in this campaign."

"Unlike my opponent, my campaign is not about divisive, partisan politics, but rather the residents of Greenwich. As First Selectman, the door to my office will always be open and I will listen closely to the concerns of my customers - the taxpayers of Greenwich - and demonstrate the proactive and responsive leadership they expect and deserve."
