After taking a job at the New Haven Register covering the Connecticut legislature, I have again shifted, or rather refined, my focus at the request of my bosses to cover the 5th Congressional district race, exclusively.
It’s been fun. After breaking several stories about John Rowland, (he’s working for Lisa Wilson-Foley but not getting paid; he worked for Wilson-Foley’s husband as recently as two weeks ago; he might have worked for Mark Greenberg, proposing to be paid through the candidate’s nonprofit animal shelter, but didn’t; plus all the ancillary coverage that went with it) I’m at a bit of a loss.
And in need of a vacation.
We’re also getting a Republican Congressional debate underway in Torrington, so that will be fun. Soon enough my focus will widen to include the Senate race, too, but for now, I’m enjoying owning the 5th district.
