Malloy’s State of the State: ‘Real Progress’ in Connecticut

By Mark Pazniokas

In his fourth and final State of the State address before facing re-election, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today delivered a ringing defense of his response to an inherited fiscal crisis and a rebuke of critics who he says refuse to acknowledge a slow, yet measurable recovery from recession. Image

Malloy, 58, whose narrow gubernatorial victory in 2010 was the first by a Democrat in 24 years, stood before legislators marked as wounded in public opinion polls, yet buoyed by a degree of fiscal stability that allows him to propose modest tax cuts, reduce long-term debt and set aside cash reserves.
