OP-ED | Connecticut’s Inversion and the Treasurer’s Race

by Suzanne Bates | September 12, 2014 11:00am

All of this talk about people leaving Connecticut to move to cheaper places to live has me thinking about the national conversation on corporate inversions.

OP-ED | Foley & Malloy: ‘Pessimistic’ Beats ‘Desperate’ Every Time

by Terry D. Cowgill | September 12, 2014 5:30am

At this point, it’s almost become a cliche to label your political opponent “desperate.” It evokes images of a boxer on the ropes lashing out lamely at a superior fighter who is destined to roll over the injured warrior. But it’s hard to find another word to describe the tactics of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who personally and through surrogates, has unleashed a torrent of ugly attacks on Republican nominee Tom Foley.

OP-ED | Pendulum Swings Back On Standardized Tests, History Repeats Itself

by Barth Keck | September 11, 2014 9:00pm


It’s easy to dismiss Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s recent plea to “reduce the time Connecticut students spend taking standardized tests” as an election-year ploy, given the most recent public polls on the topic.

OP-ED | Tea Party Stress Test

by Joshua H. Sandman | September 11, 2014 10:00am

Tip O’Neill, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, said “all politics is local.” In the locally oriented upcoming mid-term Senate and Congressional district elections, the Democratic Party is in danger of losing their majority in the Senate and continuing to be the minority party in the U.S. House of Representatives, after losing their majority in 2010.

OP-ED | In Bridgeport, Green Energy Park is a Win for Our Kids and Families

by Bill Finch | September 11, 2014 5:30am

We face an amazing opportunity in Bridgeport.

Working in partnership with my administration, United Illuminating plans to install 9,000 solar panels atop a closed and unused landfill, as well as a 2.8 megawatt fuel cell. The site of this project is in the midst of a formerly rundown section of the city that has been transformed into Eco-Technology Park.

by Susan Bigelow | September 10, 2014 12:03pm

The good news in a Quinnipiac Poll released Wednesday for Gov. Dannel P. Malloy? It’s still September, meaning there’s time to turn things around. The bad news? Everything else.

OP-ED | Maybe Ray Rice Will Change, But Will the Rest of Us?

by Karen Jarmoc | September 10, 2014 9:22am

There have been a number of disturbing videos related to Ray Rice’s assault of his then-fiancé, now wife, that have been released to the public. Each one worse than the last. First was the video of Ray Rice dragging his unconscious partner out of an elevator and dropping her on the floor.

OP-ED | Medicaid Spending Myth is Driving Unhealthy Policies

by Ellen Andrews | September 8, 2014 5:30am

Despite mounting evidence, the myth persists that Connecticut’s Medicaid spending is out of control. And unfortunately policymakers are responding to the myth with flawed policies that could cause more harm.

OP-ED | Sick of the Nattering - and Expensive -  Nabobs of Negativity

by Sarah Darer Littman | September 5, 2014 10:00am

As of this past Tuesday I’m officially an empty nester, but should I miss the dialogue of squabbling adolescents I need only turn to my inbox and peruse communications from Connecticut’s two political parties.

OP-ED | The Politics of Malaise

by Susan Bigelow | September 5, 2014 7:59am

Nothing about the campaign for governor has been more emblematic than this: the popular and effusive Bill Clinton shows up to boost Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s sinking campaign, and ends up speaking to a less-than-capacity crowd in a badly-lit hotel ballroom. Far from firing up the base, this visit just made the governor, and the Democratic Party, look worn out.
