John Larson, Rosa DeLauro, and Joe Courtney).

OP-ED | Distrust of Hartford Runs Deep, But Free Market Is No Safe Haven

by Sarah Darer Littman | October 30, 2015 9:00am


As of last week, I’m a member of one of the Connecticut’s greatest ironies: the largest municipal legislature in the nation in a town populated by people with deep distrust of anything run by government — the Greenwich Representative Town Meeting.

OP-ED | Bipartisan Lack of Integrity Destroys Confidence in Political System

by Sarah Darer Littman | October 17, 2014 11:57am

Last Friday, I attended the funeral of a much-loved relative, a brilliant man who had a long, successful career as an international tax partner at a Big Four accounting firm. One thing that struck me while listening to a succession of moving eulogies, particularly as a political writer living in “Corrupticut,” was the number of times people used the word “integrity” in describing him.
