Making the CT Economy Better with Alexandra Daum, CT-DECD

Alexandra Daum and Ari Santiago

Alexandra Daum, the new Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, joins Ari to talk about what the DECD's plans are to improve the economy for all of CT, and what they are doing specifically for our manufacturing audience.


The DECD has a big job which includes job creation, supporting small businesses, community development, and marketing the state to internal and external audiences. Alexandra is helping to drive the solutions forward, but also loves to dig into the details, especially as it concerns communications and housing. 

From workforces to brownfields to the Manufacturing Innovation Fund, this episode covers a lot of ground!
