To the Editors:
State Rep. Gail Lavielle’s Letter from Hartford provided a welcome self-assessment of what needs to be considered by Connecticut to attract, retain and deter business from leaving. GE has been headquartered in Connecticut for over 40 years. A company like GE can obviously operate from virtually anywhere. Moreover, a decision to move GE HQ is not done quickly, not done lightly and not done without consultation with the board of directors. It was a big decision to take. It’s disruptive to an organization.
