Just over a month after Connecticut’s eviction moratorium due to the pandemic expired, the federal moratorium has now expired too. For a look at what we can expect going forward from the landlord side, I invited President of Connecticut Property Owners Alliance Bob De Cosmo to speak on All Things Considered. He spoke about how likely it is that we'll see a wave of evictions now. He also had a lot to say about the type of people he sees as the main victims of eviction actions.

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. He's proud to be a part of the team that won a regional Emmy Award for The Vote: A Connecticut Conversation. In his 21st year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
