The Connecticut project on Sunshine Review
Connecticut is made up of 8 counties. Four of them were originally created in 1666, during the first consolidation of the colony of Connecticut from a number of smaller colonies. Two more counties were created during colonial times, and only two counties, Middlesex and Tolland counties, have been created since American independence, both in 1785. County governments were abolished in Connecticut in 1960. All legal power is vested in state and local governments.
Transparency of Connecticut counties

- This is your opportunity to help answer that question.
- The objective is to create a list of all counties in Connecticut, evaluate each county's website, and score & share about it right here.
