Want talent? Get #transit

Keeping young residents: Keeping young residents in Connecticut means making cities attractive - "As a young professional, I want to reside somewhere that I can live, work and play without depending on an automobile. I want to be able to walk my dog and cross the street — at a crosswalk, mind you — without causing an accident. I want to be surrounded by thriving intellectual activity and unique cultural attractions that are conducive to my mental and professional well-being. As a member of a generation of multitaskers, I need to live in a community with an assortment of amenities within easy walking distance."
