Why Doesn’t My Town Have A Mayor? Answering Your Questions On Town Government

Jan 23, 2017

Recently we asked you what questions you have about how your town government works.

This hour, two listeners join us to ask their questions and we try to answer them.

It’s part of something new that WNPR is doing -- we're calling it Connecticurious -- where we find out what you want to know. WNPR's digital editor joins us to tell us more.

Connecticut’s state historian joins us, too, to explain how Connecticut ended up with 169 towns. His explanation may help us understand why some towns despise the R word: regionalization.

Plus, do you know the story of Connecticut’s Charter Oak? We hear why the Oak was so beloved in the Nutmeg State.
