Zeke admits that Edith had the scoop

Talking about her own retirement plans last night, Sen. Edith Prague, D-Columbia, told the Mirror she was upset that her labor co-chair, Rep. Zeke Zalaski, D-Southington, also was leaving the General Assembly.

Zalaski, who was not ready to make any announcement, halfheartedly insisted he still was thinking about it. Today, he acknowledged this term was his last.

“After ten years in the legislature, I have decided to leave due to family considerations,” Zalaski said. “This will also give someone else an opportunity to run for my office and serve the great people of Southington.”
