I have no interest in voting for this or any politician that wants to allow monsters who kill other people to live off the taxpayers dime by getting a bed to sleep in , 3 meals a day and healthcare for life. Way to listen to the connecticut people since 60 % of us support the death penalty.

i was all for the increase in sales tax, but when you raise my income i was kind of pissed, shared sacrifice? i did not raise the state debt. i'm not on welfare driving a lexus, i'm struggling to keep oil in my tank for winter, just the other day i saw a state police car being loaded up at home depot with patio pavers. what's up with that malloy? i'm paying for that?

Dan Malloy's re-imagining of the city of Stamford speaks in resounding terms as to his promise as governor...not the least of that message is the business...aka jobs...he attracted to the city, including previously NYC based companies looking to defray costs by considering CT home bases.

As the candidate for a democratic governor, I would have supported Ned Lamont. Mr. Malloy is a professional politician who would not benefit the state of Connecticut. His example of governing Stamford will not win any major prizes.

I've loved Connecticut all my life. It used to be a place people all across the country thought was rich and beautiful. I no longer think this way. Our govener thinks we can just keep spending. My family is slowly moving out of Connecticut and taking their jobs with them. High paying jobs where they worked from home. I will be the last of my siblings to move to a warmer place where the budgets are balanced. Taxes are lower, and government doesn't want to control my every move.

Dan Malloy is more big government and out of control spending and borrowing. We need checks and balances especially with the huge majority in the state house and senate being democrats
