"Congress would work far more effectively if every congressman took the approach of U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney" New London Day, 10/31/2012
"Courtney has shown himself to be a dedicated public servant and tireless worker committed to serving the needs of Eastern Connecticut" Norwich Bulletin, 10/28/2012

City leaders and U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, D-2nd District, on Tuesday celebrated the city’s successful application for a $384,000 brownfields assessment grant that will be used in three targeted former industrial areas: downtown, the Shipping Street district and the Ponemah Mills in Taftville.

Courtney was sitting in a Lockheed Martin demonstrator cockpit at Whitcraft LLC, a company that makes hundreds of parts for the f135 engine on the F-35. He and other visitors and employees had a chance Thursday to see a sampling of the whizbang technology that makes the Joint Strike Fighter the most advanced jet fighter ever made, amid controversy over its cost and development.
