Hot In Hartford: Helen Ubinas v. Howard Baldwin

The "Hot In Hartford" contest continues with our fourth match featuring Helen Ubinas pitted against Howard Baldwin.

Helen Ubinas is a Hartford Courant reporter where she also has a blog "Notes From Hel."   Helen memorably "Tweeted" during the Cheshire murder trial during which she continually struggled with her terrible battery.

After being credited as being one of the driving forces in the creation of the Hartford Whalers, Howard Baldwin has re-emerged in the Hartford scene by taking control of the Hartford Wolfpack and rebranding them as the CT Whale. Baldwin's Whalers Sports & Entertainment is also organizing the Hockey Fan Fest featuring outdoor hockey games in East Hartford later this month.

Vote for who is going to advance to the next round, voting concludes at 11:59PM Tuesday.

  2. Howard wins easily, Helen who? Does what?

  3. I tried voting for Helen and it claimed that I "already voted in this poll." I did not. WTF.

  4. same thing happened to me. oh well, one less vote for Howard, as Helen is completely irrelevant anyway.

  5. Howard Baldwin is single handedly re-inventing Hartford. Kudos to Howard and his staff!

  6. Sorry to all who had voting problems. We will likely look into another poll host site....anyone have any recommendations?
