In Election Mode, Malloy Presses Flesh at BBQ Festival

By James Lomuscio

Today was the first time in its seven-year history that Westport’s Blues, Views & BBQ Festival run by the Westport Downtown Merchants Association (WDMA) hosted a governor.

“There’s barbecue, beer and blues; that’s not a bad combination,” said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy as he arrived at the entry way alongside the Westport Library.

Malloy is also running for reelection, and the festival offered him a chance to press the flesh at what was essentially a campaign stop in a town with a strong Democratic base.

“Every vote counts,” said John Hartwell, chairman of the Democratic Town Committee (DTC), who had invited Malloy.
