Michelle Jacklin joins Team DeStefano

Didn't take her long to find a new job.
In two weeks I will be getting on board the effort to elect John DeStefano Governor of Connecticut. I’m excited to announce that I will be joining the DeStefano Campaign staff as Director of Policy and Research.

As many of you are probably aware, I’ve spent the past 28 years at The Hartford Courant, most recently as political columnist and a member of the editorial board. During my tenure at the newspaper, I covered six gubernatorial campaigns, seven U.S. Senate contests, countless congressional and legislative races and the administrations of Govs. Bill O’Neill, Lowell P. Weicker Jr., John G. Rowland and M. Jodi Rell.

I firmly believe that Mayor DeStefano will do for Connecticut what he's done for New Haven, which is to restore its economic vitality, improve its quality of life, find creative solutions for its problems and make it an even better place to live, work and do business.
