Just in time for the legislative session and his undeclared campaign for reelection, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will begin another round of public meetings across Connecticut.
The first in this season’s series will be in Norwalk this Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Norwalk City Hall. The governor’s office says that “residents who would like an opportunity to ask a question should arrive prior to the start of the event to submit their names on a sign-up sheet.”
Malloy’s staff says that he is “the only governor in recent Connecticut history to hold these types of forums, starting a new tradition that he believes was long overdue.”
In a press release, Malloy said:
Being out there, accessible, and talking directly with people is fundamental to open government and helps us become more effective at serving the people we were elected to represent … I really do enjoy talking with our state’s residents directly and hearing their opinions on how we can make decisions that will best improve Connecticut. Engaging the public is a critical component in our strategy to make our communities stronger and our economy more competitive.
