NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk State Sen. Bob Duff is the recipient of an award from the Public Housing Resident Network. 

The network presented Duff (D-Norwalk, Darien) with the "Outstanding Elected Official" Award recently. The award came in recognition of Duff's support for public housing and its residents, representatives said. Duff received a certificate during a ceremony at St. Paul’s Nursery School in Wallingford.

“All people deserve a decent and affordable place to live, and public housing provides exactly that to thousands of families across our state. After many years of neglect, the state has made significant investments in public housing in recent years, which I have been very glad to support. I am honored to receive this award from PHRN and the many families that make up the organization,” said Duff.

“We are very happy and honored to present this award to Senator Duff, who has fought for the lower-income residents of the state and the families who live in public housing," said the network's Vice President Daisy Marie Franklin. "Senator Duff always makes himself available to hear his constituent’s concerns, and he is committed to decent and affordable housing for all residents.”

“All people deserve a decent and affordable place to live, and public housing provides exactly that to thousands of families across our state."

Not exactly, the TAXPAYERS provide exactly that to an ever increasing number of people who cannot afford it here.

What Mr Duff & the Democrats ignore is the fact that they have created a state where fewer and fewer people who work for a living can find decent affordable places to live. One of the reasons for the extraordinary tax burden we are under is the success the Democrats have had attracting lower income families to our cities. So in actuality this is an award for increasing the number of needy people in the state. And the more of them we have the more solidly the Democrats grasp on us gets. Why any of this is viewed in a positive light is beyond me. Shouldn't we be working towards creating a community where MORE people can afford to feed themselves & LESS people need assistance?
Perpetuating poverty for political gain seems to be the Democrat business plan in CT.
