The New Year Is A Time For New Opportunities

The New Year is upon us – a time of new beginnings and new opportunities to make positive changes for a better future for Connecticut’s cities and towns, children and working families.  We can all make a resolution to work together toward an economic recovery that restores the quality of life we know Connecticut has to offer.  The state’s public structures are a key part of that recovery – its people the engine and our ideas the fuel to make it a reality.  Some opinion writers in the media only see doom – we prefer to see an opportunity for a move in the right direction.  We look forward to working with Governor-Elect Dan Malloy and his administration in 2011 to bring that innovation and ingenuity to work for all Connecticut citizens.
