Would Mr. Esty head (back) to Washington?
With Elizabeth Esty now headed to Washington as the state’s newest member of Congress, it’s somewhat logical to wonder whether her husband Dan — the commissioner of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection — might also head there where here served for a number of years in the Environmental Protection Agency.
Apparently this occurred to Mr. Esty as well, since according to DEEP spokesman Dennis Schain, he actually brought it up at a staff meeting Wednesday morning.
Schain said Esty noted his wife’s victory and quoted him as saying, “he loves his job here and he has no plans to do anything else.”
Sounds like at least a little crack in the door.
