FOIA complaint filed after City of Waterbury refuses to release John Rowland records

From Connecticut 5th District:

The New Haven Register and Register Citizen filed a complaint with the State Freedom of Information Commission Friday afternoon over the city of Waterbury’s refusal to release documents related to former Gov. John Rowland‘s work as a taxpayer-funded economic development coordinator.

The city argues that the public does not have the right to see emails, letters, work schedules and expense reports related to Rowland’s $100,000-a-year job because Rowland was technically an employee of the Waterbury Regional Chamber of Commerce, not the city, even though city taxpayers were funding the position.
