Oz Griebel has been at the helm of the MetroHartford Alliance — since 2001 — promoting economic development in the Greater Hartford region.
This hour, we sit down with Griebel — after his announcement he’ll step down from his role as President and CEO at the end of this year. We talk about the region, the state, and his hopes for the future.
And later, one of the casualties of Connecticut's budget impasse — there’s no funding for the state’s Summer Youth Employment Program. How many Connecticut youth will be impacted? And what does this mean for young people left with nothing to do in a season known for spikes in crime?
