Hartford, CT - As First Selectman of Trumbull in 2016, Tim Herbst rolled back Trumbull teacher’s benefits to save money in Trumbull’s budget, but not before receiving a 22% raise in 2014. By cutting teacher’s benefits, Herbst was violating a collective bargaining agreement made between the Trumbull Education Association and the Trumbull Board of Education. Herbst’s budget reduction also caused over 80 non-tenured teachers to be fired. Before Tim Herbst resorted to cutting benefits and laying off teachers, did he offer to give back his raise to the town’s budget?
