Could the Newtown Massacre have been prevented? That’s a question I posed to Scott Jackson during a taping of Face the State that aired Sunday, and it’s clear having to answer that, pained him.
Jackson is the mayor of Hamden and the chairman of the Sandy Hook Commission created by Governor Malloy. Jackson was tasked with the difficult job of investigating what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and what can be done to make sure something like that never happens again.
Jackson, is a likable, easy to talk to politician, and was a candid guest. I’ve been told by a few people to keep an eye on him, because he’s “going places.” So…what about the governor’s office?
I asked the mayor if he is interested in becoming Connecticut’s first black governor. Candidates interested in running to succeed Governor Malloy in 2018 are already thinking about it.
