The Wheelhouse: 'Tis the Season for Resignations, Deficits, and Hartford Politics

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?
