In 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 forÂ WaterburyÂ and how he might interact on Waterbury's behalf at the State capitol. The Connecticut Post's Ken DixonÂ reported that both Rep. Christopher L. Caruso, D-Bridgeport, and Rep. Diana Urban, D-North Stonington, the House chairman and vice chairwoman of the Government Administration and Elections Committee, were concerned that Rowland could be lobbying the state. "It's like making a recovering alcoholic a bartender," Caruso said in an interview. "Or making a convicted robber a bank manager."
