OP-ED | Connecticut’s Disappearing Middle Class

by Suzanne Bates | October 10, 2014 10:30am

This is one of the best times of year to walk through one of Connecticut’s pretty little towns, with the lingering smell of damp leaves and fair-trade coffee hanging in the chilled air.

OP-ED | A Race In Which Nobody Wins

by Susan Bigelow | October 10, 2014 9:00am

If the last couple of polls are to be believed, Tom Foley has royally squandered a gift of an election, handing his lead back to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. This happened for two reasons: first, Tom Foley is a lousy candidate, and second, Dan Malloy is very good at attacking his opponent.

None of these are particularly inspiring reasons. Such is political life in 2014.

ANALYSIS | Esty Campaign Defends Negative Attacks in 5th District Race

by Matt DeRienzo | October 7, 2014 8:23pm

By some political playbooks, U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty appears to be acting more like a challenger than an incumbent congresswoman in her bid for re-election in Connecticut’s 5th District. Her campaign has attacked Republican opponent Mark Greenberg early and often and has been accused of gloves-off, misleading manipulation of Greenberg’s policy positions.

OP-ED | Yes, Tom Foley, State Government Should Get People Out of Their Cars

by Susan Bigelow | October 3, 2014 8:00am

At a recent transportation forum, gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley suggested that it shouldn’t be the role of state government to “push people out of their cars” and onto alternative modes of transit. He’s wrong. For all kinds of reasons, and in all kinds of ways, encouraging people to drive less ought to be a high priority of state government.

OP-ED | Who Will Celebrate Labor Day In 2034?

by Leo Canty and James Hughes | August 29, 2014 8:00am

For more than 100 years workers and their unions have designated a day to parade and celebrate labor, working people, the jobs they do and advances they have made. Over that time, the nature of that work has transformed dramatically from farms and factories to offices and cubicles.

Those changes were hard on many as they fell by the wayside in the struggle to keep up with the need to improve skills and fit into the next level. But as hard as it was for some, the transition we will all soon face will be much faster and wilder and more difficult to keep up with than most will ever imagine.

by Susan Bigelow | August 15, 2014 9:00am

The primary is over, and the main event has begun at last! Unfortunately, it’s a rerun from 2010: Tom Foley will be facing Dan Malloy during a year where the economy is lousy and everyone’s miserable.

But before we bid the primary goodbye, let’s take a look at some of what we learned:

OP-ED | A Day Everyone Loves To Hate

by Wade Gibson | April 15, 2014 5:30am

Everyone loves to hate taxes. Too high. Too low. Too complicated. The reason for this is simple: our tendency to focus only on what we pay, not how we benefit. What if you considered the cost of your home without considering all the benefits a home brings? Shelter, security, comfort, memories, and more. You might end up hating your home, too. But we love our homes, accepting the costs of homeownership knowing that the benefits far outweigh them.
