That has been the consistent message of the Malloy administration, starting at least as far back as February. Some spin doctor told Malloy and his troops: keep saying the “brighter” thing.
At times, it has caused public officials to sound like they were doing a treacly light bulb commercial instead of the people’s business. Here is Malloy spokesman Devon Puglia explaning to WNPR (thanks, Diane) why it’s a good thing to gut the library budget. Because brighter!
And in describing the weekend budget deal, Malloy decided to bring on da poetry. You know, some fresh new imagery!
“A brighter tomorrow will start with this budget today,” Malloy said in a statement.
Please bear in mind: it is not tomorrow yet. We’ll let you know when the brightness starts.
