New Jobs For CT05 Pols And More Crony Capitalism

ctnewsjunkieTwo more columns for CT News Junkie and the Journal Register newspapers.

The first one takes a look at the future employment of two failed candidates for Connecticut’s fifth congressional seat last year. Democrat Chris Donovan and Republican Andrew Roraback are strong prospects for new jobs. One sounds like a good fit; the other could be a disaster.

The second one suggests lifting the absurd requirement that municipalities and school districts advertise in newspapers. I say eliminate this vestige of crony capitalism, or at least make it voluntary. Let towns put legal notices on their websites instead. It could save them millions of dollars a year but would not, as newspaper publishers claim, endanger the public’s right to know.
