Big deal! Change any law..Who said it HAS to be closed.Emminent Domain Law...Perfect--For the good of the People of CT!!!..Some bought off official. A lobbyist? Rowland & DiBella friends? NO WAY...This is a SCANDAL Again. Shut this Quasi-Agency full of political hacks down and sell it to a private company who can ship ash to their sites in RI, NY, MA, or VT. Call your corrupt legislators and Blumenthal

It is nice to see Golub, Blumental's old law partner back at the public trough. Blumental's set him up for tens of millions in the Tobacco Settlement.

Can we find anyone in CT that is not tinged with corruption????

When the contracts with CRRA are up in 2012, do you really think any town will renew? I doubt it....

How about a little digging by the reporter. It could not possibly cost an additional 100 million dollars to dispose of ash over four years. CRRA is engaging in voodoo economics. Why isn't the Courant reporting on the fact their plant doesn't work and they are currently shipping thousands of tons out of state now? Rather than serving sa their pr flak, how about a little investigation?

"Lawyers and Banks advised the CRRA to give $220,000,000 to Enron."
Who are the lawyers? Who were the Banks? How about full disclosure?
Blumenthal was advising and promoting
the Deregulation of Electricity when the bill was passed for Tom Ritter, who now sites of the board that determines how high your electric rates should be.
The Corruption is so well established, and so deep in the government,even the press is afraid to expose it.

Another newspaper in CT 20 some years ago followed on of the Deputy Commissioners around...The guy had a State car...Never showed up. Parking place empty many times..He soon resigned when complaints were filed on other matters. No law against this. If fact follow a whole bunch around and see where they go and who they meet. How long are the lunch hours. Do they even come back to office?

jodi should send out an rfp for private companies IMMEDIATELY to take this job over and then dismantle this agency asap in a way that costs the taxpayers the least for buying out these corrupt fatarse pseudo-administrators who i'm sure can't be dismissed because of their cushy contracts. if they can be dismissed outright, do it. you wanted the governor's job, jodi, now get busy.

Those who had a sense of decency, ethics and morality have left the organization. These people were brought in post-Enron loan to clean up and give the agency a new face. For some reason, this agency corrupts those who stay on and work there. The landfill is poisoning citizens of the North End. And, they have definitely continued to haul trash out of state...there are hundred of contacts and contracts - just ask for them thru the FOI. Also, the Board has given themselves and senior management enormous benefits - wouldn't you stay if given the opportunity?
