Have to hand it to The Hartford Courant this morning. Its story about Connecticut Development Authority President Marie O’Brien, a Bristol resident, is a real talker.
Reporter Jon Lender found that the $136,000-a-year official got nearly $10,000 worth of taxpayer-financed counseling last year “after a state investigation found evidence that she ‘exhibited offensive or abusive conduct toward co-workers’ and should be subject to ‘remedial action,’ such as a reprimand or ‘anger management training.’”
According to Lender’s story, “a state personnel official looked into numerous complaints — which included allegations of a ‘mercurial’ demeanor and ‘yelling, screaming or shouting’ — from subordinates at the quasi-public agency.”
O’Brien, of course, has a different take on things. But read the story for yourself.
