Accolades for Commissioner McCarthy
Credit Gov. M. Jodi Rell on this one - she ignored the political hack tradition and hired the best candidate, conducting a private-sector style search and luring McCarthy from an environmental post in Massachusetts.
"The development that is happening everywhere is an indication the state needs to step back and think," McCarthy told me. By creating an Office of Responsible Growth, she said, Rell is sending a loud signal that environmentalists should be a part of this debate.
I’ll join in the praise if her patron, Jodi Rell, has enough influence to get ample money back in the Clean Water Fund.
