Connecticut Gov. Lamont pledges transparency in ongoing probe of state projects, ‘we’ll get to the bottom of it’

“Nora [Dannehy] got together with Stan Twardy — two former U.S. attorneys,’’ Lamont said. “We came forward immediately. We said, ‘Leave no stone unturned.’ Zero tolerance for this type of stuff. Follow where it may. That’s what Stan Twardy’s report showed.” Twardy was hired by the state and conducted the investigation into the hiring of Anastasia Diamantis by Colangelo. The investigation into the state projects is being done by federal officials. Members of the Connecticut State Building Trades Council were prepared to talk to Lamont about Diamantis during a meeting on July 22, 2020, according to a union meeting agenda disclosed by Rennie. The agenda mentioned Diamantis in detail concerning various construction jobs, including the Birch Grove Elementary School in Tolland that has raised concerns.
