Alert “06880” reader/Donut Crazy fan John Karrel was minding his own business, drinking an iced coffee and sitting on a sofa in the sugar-laden shop on the eastbound side of the train station around 3 this afternoon.
All of a sudden, in walked Governor Lamont, with 2 of his security detail.
Was he there for a strawberry frosted sprinkle donut? A cinnamon sugar cake? Perhaps one with shamrocks (special for St. Patrick’s Day week)?
Maybe the state’s chief executive was checking on the progress of our Transit Oriented Design Master Plan Committee?
The governor had to use the restroom.
As he was leaving — without ordering — John chatted him up. They exchanged pleasantries.
No one else recognized him.
Par for the course, when it comes to Fairfield County and Hartford politicians?
