Attorney General Richard Blumanthal on Where We Live: Photo By Chion WolfAttorney General Richard Blumenthal on Where We Live: Photo By Chion Wolf Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is announcing new legislation today that would strengthen whistleblower protections.

This initiative is one of - seemingly hundreds - put out by the state's "public lawyer." Today, where we live - we'll be talking about some of them: His recent agreement with MySpace.com - meant to protect children online, his fight for information about the salaries of top utility executives, the battle against the Broadwater gas terminal plan.

Blumenthal also represents the state in the Sheff v. O'Neill case, we'll talk about a judges' decision to send it back to state lawmakers, and, we'll discuss his political role in the state. He's just announced support for New York Senator, and former Yale classmate Hillary Clinton.

The Attorney Generals Office of the State of Connecticut has said that one of things that they have had the most complaints about in the State of Connecticut is Condominium Association Mangers. These complaints often involve large amounts of money. Total lack of respect for the residents of these condominium's and the most outrageous behavior and attitudes that you can think of. The Attorney Generals Office of the State of Connecticut drafted legislation last year to make Condominium Association Mangers submit to a arbitration board when there are disputes between members of the association and the Condominium Association Manger. As it is now the only way to get any results from complaints by Association members that are ignored by Condominium Association Mangers is to file a lawsuit. Which the Condominium Assocation Mangers can use Assocation members assocation money to defend themselves with. This includes attempts to find how Association funds are being spent and what things cost. This lack of responsiveness can make Condominium Associations a nightmare to live in. At the present time Connecticut Consumer Protection, the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Connecticut and the State Legislature are looking in to how to correct these extremely large issues. I would urge anyone interested in these matters to contact the State agencies that were just mentioned. I would also urge WNPR to take a in depth look at this subject. I would be happy to discuss these matters as I am very involved in this issue at the State level. The situation as is, is far worse than any one could think.
