Lamont offers plan for Connecticut cities

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont is offering a plan to renew Connecticut's cities as he competes in the Democratic primary for governor against former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy.
Malloy has long touted his city as a model of urban success.
Lamont said Tuesday he would lead a revival of Connecticut's cities by improving schools, helping manufacturers by addressing high energy and health care costs, and focus state investments near mass transit hubs. Lamont also said he will provide funding to redevelop old industrial sites.
Lamont said some of his initiatives are modest in cost, but acknowledged parts of his plan would have to be implemented over many years because of the state's large budget deficit.
