The Connecticut Supreme Court will take up an issue that’s pitting privacy advocates against First Amendment proponents. Simsbury’s first selectman resigns after taking a big pay cut she says is illegal. Meanwhile, the City of Hartford has a race for mayor that's about to start.

Our weekly news roundtable The Wheelhouse discusses these stories, plus the cuts in state spending were not enough to eliminate a budget deficit.

We’ll also consider whether those cuts we just made to state government actually helped to close the deficit. And, it looks like there might be a real race on to be the mayor of Hartford but why would anyone want that job?

  • Christine Stuart - Editor of CTNewsJunkie.com
  • Mary Glassman - First Selectman in the Town of Simsbury
