Gov. Dannel P. Malloy Monday announced plans for another statewide tour — a community forum on Wednesday evening in Middletown “to discuss the state’s pressing issues face-to-face with state residents.” This comes as state Sen. John McKinney — who has said he is interested in challenging Malloy in 2014 — begins his own “fiscal responsibility” tour of the state.
We have a number of critically important issues facing the state, and I am eager for the opportunity to hear from residents about their concerns, so that we can move forward together. The last two years, I attended more than thirty events like this at venues across the state. I think being out there, talking with people face-to-face so that we can have an open exchange and I can hear what is on their minds helps all of us in government be more effective at serving the people we represent.
Wednesday’s forum in Middletown will be held at the City Hall at 245 deKoven Drive and will run from 7-8PM. Those who would like an opportunity to ask a question should arrive a little bit earlier to fill out the sign-up sheet. More dates will be scheduled.
