Open Forum

Shays as head of the Peace Corps? Jim Himes seems to think that’s a good idea.

Job losses: A plant in Watertown is shutting down, Aetna is laying off workers in the state, and Stanley is closing a factory in Clinton.

The governor and the legislature are headed for a showdown over the senate vacancies law.

Could Rosa DeLauro end up as Labor secretary? I’ll believe it when I see it.

What else is going on?

  1. Tonight is the Hartford City Charter Revision Commission public hearing at 6pm in City Council chambers.

  2. Oh, and this is actually the second one, or a continuation of the first because the public was all but shutout at the first public hearing last week. Read: blog post on it.

  3. Job losses: A plant in Watertown is shutting down,

    OEM AUTOMOTIVE parts manufacturer no-less.

    People just don’t get it.

    The automobile industry (including captive import) is the biggest engine (no pun intended) in the national economy and 3rd in Connecticut.

    A big year in car sales would spin the entire economy around in nothing flat *and* reduce emissions, increase overall fuel economy and strengthen the dollar.

  4. Though I doubt Rosa will be picked, I think her selection would completely throw the 3CD into chaos seeing as how no one was prepared for her to leave just yet. Anyone have any candidates in mind who might run in the special election?

  5. Unless Rell knows something about the future of Dodd or Lieberman that nobody else knows, I don’t understand why she would fight over allowing the voters to choose a replacement senator.

  6. “Unless Rell knows something about the future of Dodd or Lieberman that nobody else knows, I don’t understand why she would fight over allowing the voters to choose a replacement senator.”

    I am sure a lot of voters in New York would love to be able to choose their replacement senator as well.

    Seems to me that with only 2 senators per state the job is important enough to let the voters in every state decide, rather then leave it to the governor.

  7. Congresswoman Hilda Solis (California) named as Secretary Of Labor.

    So much for Rosa

  8. Reuters reports: Toyota may post first loss in 70 years

    Hmmm, 70 years – that would mean they made a profit right through WWII.

    So I guess the title of Jerry DelaFemina’s humor book; “From Those Wonderful Folks That Brought You Pearl Harbor” was actually not so funny after all.

  9. HI,

    I appreciate the concern which is been rose. The things need to be sorted out because it’s not about the individual but it can be with everyone.
