A choice of two interesting speakers on Wednesday the 21st at 7 pm:David Sirota in New Haven and Kevin Phillips in Litchfield.
Went to check out the Areyto Festival on the New Haven Green. Saw Dan Malloy, Eddie Perez, and John DeStefano all in the space of about half an hour. And Rell had some people there in stupid t-shirts with Jodi across the front. The Gubernatorial race is really heating up!
Washington Post has an interesting story about Obama possibly running for the White House in '08. The story claims he is what the Democrats are thirsting for.
Reliable sources tell me Rell Administration will be announcing several changes in the coming week. The DOT Commissioner, Stephen Korta, is stepping down and moving back to his former position as head of Bradley Airport. Side note: The Deputy Commissioner at DOT Charlie Urso the former FBI agent brought in by Rell with great fanfare left two weeks ago.Strong indications are Jim Flemming Commissioner at DPW will move over to DOT. Kevin Rasch Rell's legal counsel also stepping down. Unconfirmed word is he's going to Robinson Cole.Stay tuned...
I am glad to see that Kevin Rennie feels the same way that I do about Alan Schlesinger.Schlesinger is indeed a second rate candidate.....Extract from Sunday's Column...Connecticut Republicans have nominated former state Rep. and former Derby mayor Alan Schlesinger. He's tried to revive the tradition of the campaign song by setting his last name to the tune of that Disney classic, "The Mickey Mouse Club March." A candidate with a silly song, no sense of irony and a cellphone is all the Republicans have offered in this riveting race. And that may be the best news Lieberman's had this year.
The usual. Nancy Johnson kissing up to healthcare interest groups.. it's a little old but I just found it..as read in the Corner Report
CTknows: great scoop there; but the ConnDOT stuff was in the NHR several days ago and linked on thid blog...this is much hotter news:::Governor: Changes In Phone Use Can Save Money June 17, 2006 Associated Press
