In this week’s episode, host and NewDEAL CEO Debbie Cox Bultan talks with Sean Scanlon, who, after serving four terms in the Connecticut state legislature, was elected last November as Comptroller, making him the youngest person ever elected to this statewide position. As a legislator, he tackled the high cost of healthcare and its impact on working families like his own. In his new capacity as Comptroller, Scanlon successfully reformed the Connecticut municipal employee retirement system with bipartisan support from the legislature. Debbie and he discuss how solving problems and building trust is the key to changing people’s perception of the government, and Scanlon shares his thoughts about social media. Tune in to find out how a book report put him on a path to public service and learn about his passion for addressing seemingly intractable problems.
