Hartford, CT – Today Tom Foley thought he was holding a political theater press conference to decry lost jobs at Fusion Paperboard. But he was called out quickly, forced to admit he never reached out to the company, workers, or town officials before his visit.
Showing up more than 30 minutes late for his own event, Mr. Foley was confronted by workers from the mill, who questioned why he was there. The video of the entire exchange can be found here.
The most contentious portions of the video can be seen between:
4:07 – 6:40
11:54 – 14:26
15:55 – 17:00
23:42 – 24:30
26:20 – 28:25
The visit was particularly ironic because Fusion Paperwork is owned by a private equity company. Tom Foley, who went there to lament lost jobs, also laid off hundreds and hundreds of workers at Bibb Co. while he helped run the NTC group.
