HARTFORD, Conn. – Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley told WFSB’s Dennis House on Sunday that Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has cut funding to schools and municipalities during his tenure as governor.

“He’s pulled back spending on schools,” Foley told House.

It’s a statement he also made during his acceptance speech Saturday at the nominating convention.

Malloy’s “spending on schools has declined partly because he’s pulled back aid to schools, aid to towns, excuse me,” Foley told House. “. . . We have many schools in Connecticut that aren’t doing a good enough job. We have some 120,000 young people in schools not getting a decent education.”
