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.

The first-term Democratic governor, who often displays a strident confidence, struck notes of both defiance and humility in a televised midday speech to the General Assembly that formally marked the opening of the 2014 session and a new phase in his undeclared candidacy.

“Our work hasn’t been easy. No person – and certainly no government – is perfect. And, Lord knows, I’m not. All of our progress has come with setbacks along the way,” Malloy said. “But together we’ve proven that positive change, while hard, is possible. That progress is possible.”

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.
