Former First Selectman Jeb Walker's pension issue has been forwarded to the state's attorney's office for possible investigation, according to New Canaan Police Chief Ed Nadriczny.

"I made an inquiry with the state," Nadriczny said. "I asked them to look into the matter, to determine if there was any impropriety (at the) end of February."

It is unclear when and if any action will be taken.

An October review of the issue by the law firm Bishop, Jackson & Kelly, LLC, determined that Walker and former Finance Director Gary Conrad's behavior violated the town's Code of Ethics, but made no determination whether the acts constituted criminal activity. The firm advised that the town's Pension Committee decide whether to pursue an investigation.

In December, the town's Pension Committee, chaired by First Selectman Robert Mallozzi, decided not to send the matter to state officials for investigation.

Mallozzi was not available for comment Monday afternoon.

Walker received a pension of $944 per month for nine months before it was discovered last summer that he was only entitled to $344 per month due to the amount of service he was vested for. He has since returned the more than $4,000 he inappropriately received.
