From Kathy Megan:

\"vallasGov. Dannel P. Malloy weighed in Wednesday on the bitter court battle in Bridgeport waged by those who believe Paul Vallas is unqualified to be superintendent of schools. “Listen, it’s  a local issue,” Malloy said. “Bridgeport’s got to do what Bridgeport thinks is best for its students.”

\"danBut Malloy is not  without an opinion on Vallas. “Do I think that someone who was superintendent of Chicago, Philadelphia and New Orleans is qualified to be a superintendent in the state of Connecticut, the answer is yes.”

On June 28, Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis ruled that Vallas is unqualified for the position. Vallas has remained in office, while the city plans an appeal, but at 2 p.m. today Bellis  will hear arguments on a motion that would oust Vallas immediately.
