Maybe I am making too much of this, but the choice of the former Governor, John Rowland, for an economic development job in the city of Waterbury, CT just isn't sitting well with me. The former Governor is reportedly going to accept the job with a salary of $90,000 to $120,000. There are many people with great qualifications and no prison record who would be great at this job. The sad fact is that the former Governor is reported to have been the only candidate considered for the job.
I do believe that corruption in our city must go very deep. I don't think it was just the Mayors or the former Governor. It think it is a way of life for City politicians. I have no suggestions for fixing the situation. A significant number of the people in the City don't seem to care or think things are OK. Sigh!
I have no wisdom here.
