The Dangers of Poor Air Quality in CT & Abroad
No parent should have to watch their child struggling to breathe, but that is the devastating reality for my family and that of many others. Our daughter had asthma as a child. An attack could be triggered by poor air quality, a high ozone day, or the dirty fumes of a diesel truck. The beginnings of a cold could develop into a cough, a wheeze, and a fight for air as her lungs filled with mucus. Our family spent long nights in fear as she grew worse, ending in ambulance rides to the ER. Our daily lives were built around managing the disease to keep her in a safe environment; we even drove her to school to avoid her breathing in the fumes from the diesel school bus.
Air pollution is a serious threat to public health. Besides causing or worsening asthma, a host of respiratory illnesses, and lung cancer, it is linked to heart disease, neurological disorders, preterm births and thousands of premature deaths annually.
Connecticut has some of the worst air quality in the country. This is especially true in our cities and areas of congested traffic, where asthma rates are soaring. Emissions from cars, trucks, and buses are the greatest source of greenhouse gas emissions in our state at nearly 40 percent. Pollutants from transportation include particulate matter (PM), nitrogen oxides (NOx), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), benzene, and formaldehyde. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
Bill Henry endorses Zeke Cohen for City Council President
Given the number of times Nick Mosby has publicly showered praise on Comptroller Bill Henry and how the two stood side by side in opposition to the BGE conduit agreement last February, Henry’s endorsement today of Zeke Cohen as City Council president comes as a political eyebrow-raiser. Cohen, who represents Fells Point, Canton and Highlandtown as First District councilman, is challenging Mosby, who is seeking a second term as the city’s second highest elected official in next year’s elections. Strolling along the 28th Street Bridge, Henry announces his endorsement this way in a video sent out by Cohen’s campaign:
“This is what I’m looking for in city leadership – people who know how to break down barriers and connect communities.” As Cohen materializes by his side, Henry says, “Zeke is the kind of leader who brings everyone in the room together, and helps them find ways to move the city forward at a time when we really need that the most.” The camera then pans over to Cohen, who echoes Henry’s soothing words: “Baltimore deserves leaders who build bridges instead of tearing each other down. That’s why I’m so proud to have the support of my dear friend and our Comptroller, Bill Henry.” CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

Will a recession decide the outcome of the 2024 election?
August 7, 2023
During Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign, strategist James Carville famously wrote on a whiteboard in the war room “The economy, stupid” — in large letters to keep it at the front of the campaign team’s minds. The economy was just coming out of a recession that had left unemployment stubbornly high.
