Press Release

(HARTFORD, CT) – Andrew Doba, Director of Communications for Governor Dannel P. Malloy, today released the following statement in response to Republican criticism of a report that was released earlier today showing that the State of Connecticut has reduced its overall debt by 15% ($11.6 billion) over the last three years:

 “The Republicans never fail to let the facts get in the way of their baseless attacks.  When the official unemployment rate falls to its lowest point since 2009, they point to dreamed up hypotheticals and ignore reality.  When a project gets approved, they criticize it, unless of course it’s in their district.  And now, when presented with a complete accounting of our debt reduction, they cherry pick their facts and continue to ignore the $11.6 billion that Governor Malloy has saved for Connecticut taxpayers.  It’s time for Republicans to stop rooting for Connecticut to fail.”
