Measuring Governor Malloy's Eight Years In Office

Dec 12, 2018

To absolutely no one's surprise, outgoing Governor Dannel Malloy is not letting anyone define his legacy without adding his two cents.

While speaking to the media Tuesday after the final Bond Commission meeting of his administration, Malloy struck back at those criticizing job growth in Connecticut and the level of state borrowing during his eight years in office.

Which side will state historians agree with a decade or more from now? There are many ways to measure Connecticut's 88th governor. Today, we reflect on his performance.

We also ponder why Democratic state chairman, Nick Balletto, is in jeopardy of losing his post. Will J.R. Romano, the state Republican party chair, be sent packing as well?

One person definitely out of a job is U.S. Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty. On Tuesday, she gave her last speech on the U.S. House floor. We look back on her record and her missteps.
