Laborers to rally against Rowland

According to a release, The Connecticut Laborers' District Council announced today that it will hold a "major protest action" against WTIC-AM Radio personality and former Gov. John Rowland in front of the CBS Radio/WTIC Radio Studios tomorrow.
According to the release, "The Connecticut Laborers' are protesting Rowland's continual biased and hateful talk against unions, public projects such as the CTfastrak (Busway) project and the spending of state tax dollars."
"The John Rowland that I remember as governor of Connecticut always supported public projects and understood how to grow the local economy. His present show is now all trash talk radio. It's really become 'hate' radio every weekday afternoon. We're supporting a boycott of his advertisers and the radio station as well," said Charles LeConche, business manager, Connecticut Laborers' District Council. "Our organization will also be petitioning the Federal Communications Commission about this CBS Radio outlet's handling of trash talk and biased information without offering the opportunity to present different points of view. I would like to invite all Connecticut workers to join us at this protest this coming Thursday afternoon."
The protest takes place at CBS Radio Studios, 10 Executive Drive, Farmington, 2 p.m. Thursday.
