DECD Commissioner David Lehman airs his early plans to jumpstart CT’s economy
24 May 2019
David Lehman, Connecticut’s newest economic-development commissioner, sees himself as a life-long learner.
Two books on the credenza in his upper-floor downtown Hartford office overlooking the Connecticut River — “Industries of the Future,” by Alex Ross; and “The New Urban Crisis,” by Richard Florida — speak volumes about the crossroads in the Greenwich resident’s life and career.
They also hint at where the former Wall Street banker will look for solutions to Connecticut’s decade-long, sluggish economy as well as new opportunities for innovation and job creation.
