Official faces harassment complaint after calling woman attractive


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 reported that Linda Zukauskas 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 said he uses the word attractive all the time and did not mean it in a sexual way.
