After trying to connect democrat John Fabrizi's endorsement of First Selectman Tim Herbst to a potential development on Madison Avenue, Trumbull Democratic Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo has apologized.
“It was a dumb thing to say, which is typically what happens when you’re angry and you try to say something. It came out wrong, and I’m sorry for it. I think most people in politics are good and decent people who believe deeply in public service. It was dumb of me to suggest otherwise," she said Monday.
Herbst said he was not expecting an endorsement from Fabrizi, the former democratic Mayor of Bridgeport. Fabrizi spoke at a recent fundraiser for Herbst.
The first selectman added that his mother, Deborah Herbst, has known Fabrizi for years. Deborah Herbst is a retired Milford principal and Fabrizi works for the Bridgeport School district.
