Big Week


A big week for former News 8 reporter Jodi Latina.

The state Senate Republican caucus communications staffer won a seat on the town council in Wethersfield Tuesday and now, according to a report from Kevin Rennie, Latina is about to leave her job at the Capitol to become chief of staff to New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart. She will be immersed in municipal government from morning until night.

Stewart was re-elected Tuesday.

Latina served as an aide to U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon and was a regular panelist on Tom Dudchik’s Capitol Report television show on Fox 61.
