There's much to wonder about a guy who couldn't hack reading resolutions when he was on the Greenwich DTC, but Rennie goes down a different path:
In his cable business, however, Lamont has not been so eager for union attention. At one conclave, Lamont gave the cold shoulder to Bill Henderson, president of Communications Workers of CT Local 1298, when Henderson had the temerity to suggest to the cable executive that he ought to let the union into Lamont Digital.
Rennie goes on to delve into the Ann Lamont investment messes, which frankly I'm not sure mean much except the one that he doesn't mention, where somehow, really, no coincidence here, Ann's fund invested in a cousin of Bush. Maybe Ann will attend the George Bush fundraiser hosted by L. Scott Frantz in Greenwich.
As the staunchest of staunch Republicans, Frantz did something unusual in 1990; he contributed to the state Senate campaign of a Democrat. The fiscally conservative Democrat was little known outside of Greenwich then, but he had the same type of entrepreneurial background and Ivy League pedigree as Frantz.
His name? Ned Lamont.
"Frankly, we've been pretty good friends," Lamont said. "I respect him. I like him. But I've still got to work on him on the political front. Maybe he'll do a fundraiser for me and show his true bipartisanship - reaching across the aisle."
