Form new port authority, make it transparent

We all now know that there is trouble, trouble right here in River City (New London), and that starts with T which rhymes with P which stands for Port Authority. Hearings are planned and politicians from both sides of the aisle are doing what they do best, pointing fingers, covering up and distancing themselves from any responsibility. Everybody says that they want to examine the troubled organization, but it is not easy to perform an autopsy while the body is still moving. Something more drastic is clearly needed.

In his State of the State and Inauguration speeches, Governor Lamont said, “I refuse to invest any time in the blame game of who’s responsible for this crisis. It’s real, it’s here and it’s time to confront it head on.” And, “This is our chance to reinvent Connecticut – to think big, act boldly.”

He is so right! Now is the time to eliminate the existing Connecticut Port Authority and create a new one!

When the new authority is established, let’s hope that it is housed in a building with big picture windows so we can all look in and see how it is conducting business.
