Blumenthal: Washington is “Broken” and He Hopes to Fix It

Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, addressing the same group where Gov. M. Jodi Rell complained last week about “so much partisanship in government,” said today he agrees with her, believes it’s led to Washington being “broken,” and hopes to go there to fix it.

“What Governor Rell perhaps meant, and I agree with her, is that there is too much partisanship, too much acrimony, division, name-calling, fighting—that’s what I hope to fix in Washington,” Blumenthal told a meeting of the Y’s Men of Westport Weston, a retirees group.

The attorney general, who is seeking the Democratic nomination to replace retiring Senator Christopher Dodd, spoke a week after Rell told the Y’s Men she is leaving office because Connecticut needs a new face at a time when there is “so much partisanship and so much nastiness” in government. (See WestportNow March 11, 2010)

Responding as Rell did to a question, Blumenthal said: “The revulsion of people to what’s happening right now in Washington—and it’s justified, Washington is broken—is something I’ve seen at the state level.”

First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff said today while many Westport homes regained power today, there may be “scores still without power by midnight"and that he had told the utility company that was unacceptable.

Those last to receive power are individual properties with downed lines due to falling trees or branches, he said he was told by officials of Connecticut Light & Power Company.

“There may be scores still without power by midnight, I am told,” he said. “They tell me these are people with individual lines down and they have to concentrate their resources for the main lines. Then they can get to individual homes.

“I told them this was unacceptable and every effort should be made to get all Westport customers back on line.”

Rell Expresses Frustration to CL&P Over Storm Recovery

Governor M. Jodi Rell today called top managers of the Connecticut Light & Power Co. (CL&P) to express her continued frustration with the pace of the recovery from last weekend’s severe storm, which caused nearly 100,000 customers to lose power, the governor’s office said.

By early evening today – five days after the storm – more than 7,700 CL&P customers remained without power.

To speed the recovery, Rell is once again sending Department of Transportation crews to the area to help with debris clearance, her office said.

At the governor’s request, the state Department of Public Utility Control has also asked United Illuminating Co. (UI) to loan some of its crews to CL&P to assist in restoring power to the remaining customers, according to Rell’s office.
