This past Sunday on Face the State, we introduced a new recurring segment, called CapChat. CapChat will feature some conversation about the future of capital city and ultimately, our state. It’s a venue to toss around information, ideas, and intelligent opinion.
Our first trio for CapChat featured Anthony Price, Thea Montanez and Paul Marte, all very active in the renaissance of Hartford. We are talking about the baseball stadium, safety, development and the brain drain.
Price is with HEDCO, the Hartford Economic Development Corporation. HEDCO helps small businesses get capital. Price has interesting thoughts on why young people are now taking a second look at a city and a state many of their contemporaries have spurned for New York and Boston.
Thea Montanez is a lifelong Hartfordite. and for years has been involved in various city organizations, including the Hartford Foundation. She currently sits on the Hartford Courant editorial board and runs her own firm, Thea Montanez Consulting.
Paul Marte is another public relations guru and familiar face in the city’s arts and entertainment scene. He does PR for the Connecticut jewel that is the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts.
Next week’s CapChat features some new faces.
