Wrong about Delauro?
While I have not heard back directly from her staff member who promised to return my call, nor from Rosa Delauro directly, I have heard indirectly, that the rumor of Congresswoman Delauro's involvement in siting an Army Reserve Training Center in Middletown, is likely untrue.
Matt Lesser, an alternate on the Zoning Board, an activist in the local Democratic Party, and a Wesleyan student, sent me an email yesterday indicating that Delauro's office had "zero influence" on the BRAC report.
That, of course, leaves it in the realm of mystery as to how Middletown was specified as the location for the base. And as we know, the Government moves in mysterious ways. And happily so.
