In Tough Times, Every New Job is Celebrated
By Mark Pazniokaswww.ctmirror.org
Hartford—Up against an anemic economy, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy was back on the road today, visiting a new commercial tenant at a repurposed Colt Armory to promote his frenetic efforts to encourage job growth in Connecticut.
“I’ve been the governor for less than two years,” Malloy said. “In that period of time, we have reached out and worked with about 400 companies in Connecticut, to preserve jobs, to grow jobs and to attract jobs to the state.”
In the previous eight years before he took office, the Department of Economic and Community Development worked with fewer than 200 companies, Malloy said.
“Eight years, 200 companies. Two years, 400 hundred companies,” Malloy said, emphasizing the contrast, a story certain to be told and retold as the 2014 re-election campaign draws closer. “This is not an immediate pay off, it’s a long-term pay off.”
