Who cares what Duff thinks? He is well known for saying on TV that CT's electric customers were not giving Electric Rate deregulation a fair chance. More and more businesses are shutting down or leaving the state because of high electric rates and CT residents are struggling to pay these criminally high electric bills in the face of cut wages or lost jobs. Duff is a slimebag who should resign immediately!

Giving attention to bills seems like something the Governor should be doing to keep residents informed. As Governor, she needs to make public appearances and that requires her to travel within the state to do it.
I don't see where public bill signing is"improper use of state vehicles". Maybe she should get herself a fancy little plane and travel around by air instead of car! Must be a slow news week!!

You'd think the Governor of a state with a deficit of nearly $9 billion would have better things to do with her time than "re-sign" billls.
What's the point? She could just as easily have people come to her office in Hartford.
She's praising herself for making all these cuts to vehicles but can't cut back on her own driving?
It's just self-promotion on the taaxpayer's dime.
