Senate Democrats' Response to Malloy
Senate President Williams and Senate Majority Leader Looney both say Gov. Malloy set the right tone and is poised to get Connecticut’s economy moving again
Hartford: Senator Donald E. Williams, Jr. (D-Brooklyn) and Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney (D-New Haven / Hamden) are giving Gov. Malloy high marks for his address to the General Assembly today.
“Gov. Dan Malloy set the tone today,” said Senator Williams. “He did not mince words about the depths of the challenges we face. People are ready for straight talk and the shared sacrifice Gov. Malloy talked about. They understand that will lead to shared prosperity. I was also pleased to hear Gov. Malloy focus on job growth and how lowering energy costs and improving our transportation infrastructure will get our economy moving again.”
Senator Looney said Gov. Malloy’s speech was extraordinary, “I think it was an extraordinary speech, exactly what we had hoped and expected to hear today. The governor struck many of the major themes he had raised during his campaign about the need for a strong partnership in Connecticut between state government and business in Connecticut and the need for aggressive executive leadership in economic development.”
