Sen. Fasano Welcomes Amistad Support from Attorney General

August 21, 2014

Hartford – State Senator Len Fasano (R-34), Senate Minority Leader Pro Tempore, released the following statement today regarding Attorney General George Jepsen’s appointment of a receiver over the operations and assets of Amistad America, Inc.

“It is a shame that years of lax oversight by this administration has put such an important educational and cultural asset at risk and possibly resulted in the squandering of taxpayer dollars. It is essential that we protect and preserve the Amistad for future generations. I am grateful to the Attorney General for his thorough review and action on this matter. By appointing an independent receiver, we can ensure the survival of the Amistad and verify that taxpayer dollars are spent efficiently and put to best use,” said Fasano.
