HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is going back out on the road to meet face-to-face with Connecticut residents.

The Democrat announced Monday he plans to kick off a series of community forums to discuss “the state’s pressing issues” with the public. The first one will be held at the Middletown City Hall on Wednesday evening at 7 p.m.

Additional dates and locations will be announced as they’re scheduled.

Malloy has attended more than 30 such events over the past two years, focusing on the state budget and education reform.

A potential Republican gubernatorial rival, Senate Minority Leader John McKinney, announced he is holding an eight-town “Fiscal Responsibility Tour” to discuss Malloy’s proposed budget. McKinney has been critical of Malloy’s plan.

The first stop is March 11 in Enfield.
