Welcome to The Connecticut Mirror

an independent source of news and information about our state’s government, politics and public policy. From dealing with Connecticut’s budget crisis to choosing its top officials, 2010 will be a year of critical decisions. We hope you’ll be with us as we cover it all.

Our goal is to bring you in-depth coverage of the issues and events that will affect the lives of all Connecticut residents for years to come. Beyond that, we want to give you access to data and information behind the news, background material that is often hard to find or unavailable at all on line.

Our “Guide to Politics and Government,” for example, provides the most comprehensive information available any where on the state’s elected officials. It includes election histories, personal and political background information, summaries of financial disclosure filings with links to original documents and, for state legislators, voting records on key bills.

Please browse the Guide, read about our current features and plans for The Connecticut Mirror on our About page, and use the Contact link to let us know what you think. Thanks.
