U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal
Current and former state officials on Thursday mourned the passing of Fauliso, who also served as a Hartford alderman, municipal court judge and state senator. He died on Wednesday.
“There is no doubt that we are now seeing the effects of decades of neglect when it comes to investing in our infrastructure,” Malloy said.
There were 139 violations since 2004, Blumenthal said. Per 100 miles of track, Metro-North had five times the number of safety defects than any other commuter railroad in the country, he added.
