I was excited about an interview for last week’s Face the State with David Panagore, the Chief Operating Officer for the City of Hartford. It’s no secret there has been some new signs of life in downtown Hartford lately, and wanted to hear from Panagore about what’s still to come.
We recorded our chat last Thursday, and then on Friday morning we made the decision to hold that interview and the other two we recorded because of Hurricane Irene and her expected onslaught on our state just as Face the State would have aired. We could have held the program until this coming Labor Day weekend, but U.S. Open tennis is pre-empting us.
The Face the State that was recorded last week can be seen on wfsb.com right now. In the interview, Panagore talks about why the business outlook in Downtown is on the upswing, and what the city is doing to attract new business. This C.O.O. is a bright guy, who picks up plenty of great ideas during his extensive travel.
