Face the State

Wyman Working to Keep Aetna; Seems Open to Third Term


Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman is our guest this Sunday on Face the State, and the timing coincided with news of the Aetna merger falling apart, budget battles at the state capitol and the proposal to renovate the XL Center.

Wyman talked about the importance of keeping insurance giant Aetna in the capital city and what the administration is doing to avoid another high profile corporate departure like General Electric. We discussed why she feels 250 million dollars should be spent to secure the XL Center’s future, and we talked about her future.

Wyman didn’t directly answer questions about a run for a third Malloy Wyman term, but I got the sense from what she did say that she is open to running again, and what about running for governor herself if Governor Malloy declines to seek re-election? We asked her that question, too and you’ll see her answer on Sunday.


Also on Sunday, we are joined by Doctor James Feeney, for a fascinating conversation about a new medical marijuana program at St. Francis Hospital.  I think you’ll learn quite a bit, I know we did.


Our flashback takes us back to February 1992 when the Foxwoods Resort and Casino was brand new. We have a report from our archives by David Ushery.

See you Sunday morning at 11 for Face the State on WFSB.
