TF: More needs to be done for Hartford and all cities. Some schools, in inner cities do not perform well. Economic challenges go back to education of young people. I have been active supporting reform for public schools. If we don't prepare young people, perpetuate problems that exist.
OG: Prez Bank of Boston, experience in urban areas -- critical to work with organizations, CCM, alliance, capitol city has unique role -- critical to work with mayor and city counsel to benefit residents, ensure economic growth -- make it "shining city on a hill"
MF: As urban centers go, so go our state. Will fix educational issues -- adopt best practices of urban schools -- charter schools doing an excellent job -- break down barriers so all children have opportunity -- not just education, but economic development as well
