The speculation is starting already.
When Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced that senior adviser Roy Occhiogrosso is leaving the governor’s office after Christmas, state Capitol insiders immediately started wondering what’s his next move. That even included speculation that he would become the chief of staff in Washington, D.C. for incoming U.S. Senator Chris Murphy.
Occhiogrosso immediately said that the Murphy rumor is “definitely not true.”
“I have twin 4 ½ year old boys who spend half their time with me and the other half with their Mom,” Occhiogrosso told Capitol Watch on Monday. “So she and I need to live near each other – which is why leaving the state isn’t an option.”
