The Pension Bomb

State and local governments face a $5 trillion dollar unfunded pension liability.

Politicians in Connecticut, New Jersey and Illinois are especially irresponsible when it comes to not funding pension plans...



We need to learn from Friday night’s ugly scene and never repeat it

So let me just say this to the city’s leadership: New London’s priorities need an overhaul.

Nobody cares about Fort Trumbull, City Pier, State Pier, who wins the bid for the Crystal Ave. property or what businesses are or aren’t coming to Bank St. Our primary concern is safety. A fully staffed police department allows officers to patrol Bank and State Streets, creating both the perception and the realism that the city is a safer place.

And if the woefully understaffed police department doesn’t become the top priority of our leadership — now — then our leadership knows nothing of its city and its citizens. Nothing. Zero.
