11/09/09 Greenwich Resident Ned Lamont's Big Bucks Makes Jodi Rell Run Away

The Greenwich Time Missed This News Flash......

Conn. governor decides not to seek another term

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)

Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell says she will not seek re-election next year.

She made the announcement in a news conference Monday at the statehouse in Hartford.

Rell has been governor since 2004, when John Rowland resigned in a corruption probe. In 2006 voters made her the first Republican woman elected to the post.

State budget problems have driven her job approval.

HARTFORD ­ tearful Gov. M. Jodi Rell abruptly announced Monday she will not run for re-election, bringing to an end a 25-year political career that saw her rise from an obscure small-town politician to a figure credited with restoring faith in a scandal-scarred office.

In a stunning announcement during a hastily called news conference in her office, Rell said.....
.....her predecessor and former running mate John G. Rowland, resigned under the shadow of an impeachment investigation in July 2004. He eventually pleaded guilty to federal corruption charges.

Rell served 10 years in the state House of Representatives, representing her hometown of Brookfield, before becoming Rowland's running mate in 1994. For nine-and-a-half years, she ......

....."I met today with our budget chief and our sales-tax revenue continues to decline," Rell said during a brief question-and-answer period in her Capitol office after her announcement. "That's why I need to focus, right now, my attention on getting our budget in balance and dealing with the Legislature." Rell said that she's sure Republicans can hold the Governor's Residence after she retires. Right after her news conference, Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele, of Stamford, told reporters in the hall outside Rell's office that he expects to be a candidate and anticipates Rell's support.
"This is something that we've all been expecting," Fedele said.....
.....On the Democratic side, James A. Amann of Milford, former speaker of the House, is the only officially announced candidate for the party's gubernatorial nomination. But several Democrats have filed exploratory committees: Stamford Mayor Dannel P. Malloy; Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz; Ridgefield First Selectman Rudolph P. Marconi; state Sen. Gary LeBeau of East Hartford; and Ned Lamont, who won the 2006 Democratic primary against U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman.

On the Republican side, House Minority Leader Lawrence F. Cafero Jr., R-Norwalk, is exploring a candidacy.....

This book is for the amazing female pioneers who shattered the glass ceiling --- a practical and inspiring guide to figuring out what's next. Boomer women have been trailblazers throughout their professional lives. Now that their careers are losing their edge and children leave the nest, these women are ready to do for retirement what they did for the working world. The first book from The Transition Network focuses on the unique needs of women as they explore new possibilities and redesign the old model of retirement.


Gail Rentsch is a founding member of The Transition Network. In 2000, she recalls being among some 20 other women gathered to help build an organization where women could share their concerns and aspirations as they moved from their primary careers to something else. Gail retired from her primary career in 2004, after 24 years as founder and president of a successful, New York City-based public relations agency with clients that included book publishers, authors, non-profit institutions and corporations. Gail is also the co-author of The Whole Horse Catalog, first published by Simon & Schuster in 1977. That book has gone through three revisions, multiple printings and remains in print today. It is Gail's hope that this new book will last nearly as long.

Wynfield's Kingdom
Just Books
28 Arcadia Road, Old Greenwich, CT
Free and Open to the Public

Just Books is pleased to welcome Marina Julia Neary, an award-winning historical essayist, multilingual arts & entertainment journalist, published poet, playwright, actress, dancer and choreographer, as she introduces her first novel Wynfield's Kingdom (Fireship Press, $29.95).

Welcome to 1830s Bermondsey, London's most notorious slum, a land of gang wars, freak shows and boxing matches. Dr. Grant, a disgraced physician, adopts Wynfield, a ten-year old thief savagely battered by the gang leader for insubordination. The boy grows up to be a slender, idealistic opium addict who worships Victor Hugo. By day he steals and resells guns from a weapons factory. By night he amuses filthy crowds with his adolescent girlfriend, a fragile witch with wolfish eyes. Their tragicomic idyll ends when Wynfield falls under the spell of an elusive benefactress and leaves his bohemian, semi-criminal circle to follow her to Westminster. There, in the company of blue-blooded outcasts, he learns the secret of his origin and the role he is destined to play in the history of England. Invoking the ghosts of English anarchists, Guy Fawkes and Oliver Cromwell, Wynfield enters the world's biggest tavern - the Parliament, where he meets the most ruthless boy gang in the world - the British aristocracy. Using the mixture of chemicals, satire and horror, Wynfield stages an unforgettable performance and subdues the ruling class - if only for one day.
