The Yankee Institute for Public Policy is a 30-year old, Hartford-based organization that monitors the most critical areas of interest to Connecticut citizens: taxes, the state’s fiscal status, energy costs, the health industry and political and governmental integrity and accountability.

Zachary Janowski is Director of External Affairs for the Yankee Institute. After spending time in mainstream journalism, Zach joined the Institute in 2010 as its first investigative reporter and founder of “Raising Hale”–an investigative reporting blog. He writes extensively about waste, fraud and abuse in state and local governments. Zach, a native of New Hampshire, serves on the board of the Connecticut Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and works closely with the Connecticut Council on Freedom of Information. He was a 2012 recipient of a Phillips Foundation Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship. Zach, his wife and two children reside in Plantsville, CT.
