There is little privacy when you are elected official. Your salary is public knowledge, and if you get a raise, everybody knows about it. If you want a raise, you really can’t talk about it..especially in an election year.
In this week’s Face the State flashback, we take you back 15 years to 1998 when Governor John Rowland was being challenged for re-election by Congresswoman Barbara Kennelly. One of the issues being talked about was pay raises for the governor and some other elected leaders.
The report from our archives you’ll see Sunday was filed by Jeff Cole, a former moderator of Face the State.
Tune in for Face the State this Sunday at 11 only on WFSB Channel 3.
