"Governors Rowland and Rell have failed to control energy prices," said DeStefano. "Even worse, they've followed the failed policies of President George W. Bush by slashing funding for the development of clean, renewable energy technologies and for energy conservation. My plan calls for bold action that will make Connecticut a national leader in alternative energy and provide real relief for our families."
As a Democrat I especially appreciate how he connects Rell to the Bush administration. Gov. Rell has done a good job distancing herself so far, but if either DeStefano or Malloy has an actual chance of winning they need to find ways of getting voters to associate Rell with Bush. Focusing one energy seems like the most effective way to accomplish this.
The plan itself is bolder than his plan for pay equity, which I last reported on. I like that JDS is talking about energy beyond just gas prices. As many of you have pointed out they may go down again as the election nears. Speaking of plans and initiatives, I wonder how many more we'll get before the convention.
