The Springfield shuttle lumbers into New Haven’s Union Station.

Gubernatorial aide Kip Bergstrom is ready to tell other states, “We will steal your scientists”—but he wants high-speed trains to help him do it.

Bergstrom, the state’s deputy commissioner for the Department of Economic and Community Development, delivered that message Thursday night to a gathering of more than 50 people standing in the rear of The Bourse, the “coworking loft” on Chapel Street.

He was a block away from the state-of-the-art green building at 360 State Street, which towers over the Elm City Coop.  He was two blocks from Artspace. And he was two blocks from the State Street train station.

Kip is lucky to have a job. But for the fact that Dan had a short list of synchophants looking for work he would have been fighting,and failing, to keep his post at the Stamford URC.
This is what we get for our $15MILLION dollars?! Challenging other states with a lot of hot air?

Forget it. Danny Boy wasted our money on a Busway to Nowhere. Would have been really smart to spend it on high-speed rails; but we’ve got the wrong guy at the helm.

Fisherman:  “It’s quite obvious that Gov. Malloy is in, over his head,” based on his costly, blundered decision making in office. I hope and pray that “our traveling governor,” does not continue to bury our state, in the remainder of term in office.

He should stay out of state, and let Nancy Wyman, fill in for him. I have confidence that Nancy
would be more conservative in her judgement—as apposed to a liberal spending, erratic Malloy.
