You might get a knock on your door this weekend, or perhaps an approach at the supermarket or the beach. Candidates and their staffers will be out in full force this weekend gathering signatures for petitions so they can make the Connecticut primary ballot. This Sunday on Face the State on WFSB, Secretary of the State Denise Merrill is with us to explain the process which is complicated. “Some signatures will be thrown out,” for a variety of reasons Merrill said, but she predicted “at least a few of the candidates” will make it.
Also on the program, the Executive Vice-President and Chief Administrative Officer Andy Bessette is here to talk about the upcoming Travelers Championship. Bessette also talked about the newer employees at the insurance giant, and how these millennials have different needs and living goals than people hired a few years ago.
Our final guest is the Commissioner of the Department of Transportation Jim Redeker, who explains the state’s new Hartford Line rail line. It’s pretty amazing. The new service to Springfield and New Haven means you’ll be able to travel to Manhattan via Metro North for under $50 round trip!
See you Sunday morning at 11 on WFSB.
