Well, it could be. Gov. Rell today tried to strike a positive tone on the economy today when she spoke with business leaders in Hartford:
She said while the state has lost jobs, “it’s not as bad as we thought it would be.” She said there are also new jobs being created in the state, mostly in the film industry.
Turning the economy around may take longer than “we hoped, but we will get through it,” Rell said.
Take a look at the article to see new unemployment figures, and to read how Rell thinks negotiations with state employee unions are going (hint: not well). Rell still hopes to avoid layoffs.
As an aside, I’m getting most of my news from the Capitol from CTNJ these days.
