Face the State Flashback: Weicker’s Tumultuous First Year as Governor

Twenty years ago our state was marking the end of the first year of our new governor, Lowell Weicker, and what a year that was.  It was a period of tumultuous change that still impacts our daily life today.

In our Face the State flashback this week, we take you back to January 1992, when Duby McDowell, the former moderator of this program, took an in-depth look at Weicker’s first year.   From the salty language mixed with Fairfield County vocabulary, to the income tax rally, to a pie in the face for fun, 1991 was a year to remember.

Here is the entire flashback that aired  Sunday morning at 11 on Face the State only on Channel 3   http://www.wfsb.com/video?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=6642038

  1. Whoever posted this on the WFSB web site needs spelling remediation. It’s Wiecker, not Wrecker.
