Seldom does a race for the state legislature attract considerable attention and rarer still is the legislative race that makes national headlines. That’s exactly what happened this week as the political world buzzed with news that Ted Kennedy, Junior may run for the state senate.
This Sunday on Face the State, we will talk about Kennedy’s potential candidacy with a reporter from his hometown, Marcia Chambers of the Branford Eagle. You can watch Kennedy’s 2012 appearance on Face the State right here: https://dennishouse.tv/2012/09/13/connecticuts-kennedy-ready-to-hit-campaign-trail/
Also on the program, we are discussing the minimum wage and some of the other concerns city and town leaders have this session. Our guests are Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson, a Democrat, and Seymour First Selectman Kurt Miller, a Republican.
Rounding out Face the State agenda this Sunday is the case of the chimpanzee attack and whether the victim can sue the state for damages. Charla Nash’s two attorneys are here to discuss the ancient law that forbids a lawsuit, based on the 14th century theory “the King can do no wrong.” Most states don’t have this law, and we’ll learn about Nash’s quest to have the legislature clear the way for her to file a suit.
Finally, we will remember former Connecticut First Gentleman Lou Rell, the husband of former governor Jodi Rell who died this past weekend.
Tune in this Sunday at 11AM for Face the State on WFSB Channel 3. More pictures from Shelly Sindland, who represents Charla Nash: http://shellysindlandphotography.smugmug.com/Dennis-House-Face-The-State/n-D52t9/
