Woodbury first selectman faces harassment claim

WOODBURY, Conn. (AP) — Woodbury's first selectman is facing a sexual harassment complaint from a town resident who was offended that he called her "attractive."

The Republican-American of Waterbury reports that Linda Zukauskas has filed the complaint against First Selectman Gerald Stomski with the state Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities.

Zukauskas said in an affidavit submitted to the commission that Stomski called her "attractive" at the annual town budget meeting last May and that she found the comment "sexually harassing and insulting."

Stomski says he uses the word "attractive" all the time and didn't mean it in a sexual way in his comment about Zukauskas. He says he doesn't understand her discomfort and believes the word is a compliment.

A spokesman for the state commission says he can't comment on pending complaints.
