Mark Lauretti on Principles & Values
Denies involvement in two Shelton development scandals
Lauretti downplayed any political damage done by scandals involving Shelton, such as one that led to convictions for two prominent developers and a city building official and another one that involved the theft of up to $914,000 by a former city
Assistant Finance Director . Federal law enforcement officials oversaw the development scandal investigation and pursued Lauretti as a target, but he was never charged with any crime and denies having done anything illegal.
Lauretti said when asked about the issue. "That's standard for public officials. It means that I've been vetted. And don't forget the sitting governor went through the same thing." Part of the Shelton investigation focused on home improvements made to
Lauretti's home. Questions also have been raised in the past about the cost of work done on Malloy's home in Stamford. Lauretti said when you hold public office, some people don't like you and they often will make accusations to cause political problems.
