Dan Debicella of Shelton, the Republican challenging U.S. Rep. Jim Himes for Congress, said Monday morning that Jim Himes “wasted” $3 million in taxpayer money and then tried to distance himself from the stimulus-related money for a yacht and ferry builder.
Debicella held a press conference Monday morning at the site of the former Derecktor Shipyards in Bridgeport’s East End. At the political event, he said Himes — a Democrat in his third term — had “wasted taxpayer money on special interest friends, destroyed jobs in Bridgeport, and attempted to cover it up.”
