RowlandIn our Notes from the Capitol segment, Paul Hughes of the Republican American and Jon Lender of The Hartford Courant discus the questions raised about former Governor Rowland's new job as an economic development officer for Waterbury and how he might interact on Waterbury's behalf at the State capitol.
