Welcome to "Minutes with the Mayor," a weekly video feature where Stamford Patch interviews Mayor Michael Pavia about the issues facing the city.

This week, Pavia addresses the possibility that the city will face cuts in municipal aid if Gov. Malloy is unsuccessful in getting unions to agree to concessions.

Gov. Malloy is proposing that state aid to Stamford be reduced by over $450,000, according to unofficial numbers calculated and released by the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities. (Only $24.6 million of the $54.4 million in proposed cuts are presently quantifiable by municipality.)
