“I have lived in Connecticut my entire life. I was born here, worked here and raised my family here. But I am afraid I can’t afford to retire here. I am afraid I won’t be able to see my grandkids as often as I’d like because I will be forced to move somewhere more affordable.”
These are the words of Pam, a near-retirement age nurse I met at a recent event. Like many others, she has seen Connecticut change over the course of her lifetime. Pam’s story is unfortunately all too common.
