  • Bee Tries To Have It Both Ways

    To the Editor:

    In last week’s editorial endorsement, we were told that Governor Malloy had stabilized the previous budget.  This week, after the election is over, The Bee editorial tells us that the state is faced with a $1.37B and $1.58B deficit over the next budget cycle according to the Office of Fiscal Analysis. I guess that the editorial writers must be two different people because they completely contradict each other regarding the governor’s stewardship of state finances. 

  • Letter of Endorsement

    To the Editor: 

    A rock of compassion, support, and leadership, Dan Malloy has stood solidly with the Newtown community and our families since the nightmare inflicted on us two years ago.  And he has demonstrated his courage, resolve and leadership in getting strong, common sense gun laws in Connecticut to help reduce the scourge of gun violence in our country.

  • Malloy, Foley Clash Over State's Response To 12/14 At Testy Debate

    HARTFORD (AP) — Gov Dannel P. Malloy and Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley on Thursday exchanged some of the strongest words yet in their continuing debate over Connecticut’s response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, with the candidates accusing one another of grandstanding on issues that arose from the massacre.

  • Election Year Math

    There is a classic line from a Saturday Night Live sketch delivered by Chevy Chase portraying Gerald R. Ford in a 1976 presidential debate responding to a convoluted and complicated question on the economy: “It was my understanding there would be no math during the debates.” Since that sketch first aired, math has become a staple of political discourse because of — not in spite of — Chevy Chase’s everyman response to shifting facts and figures.

  • The Sandy Hook Effect In Hartford

    When the next legislative session begins in Hartford on Wednesday next week, Governor Dannel P. Malloy will outline his priorities in his formal budget message. The extent to which Newtown and the 12/14 tragedy in Sandy Hook has aligned priorities for the governor and legislators will be obvious.

  • Town Announces Warming Centers In Anticipation Of Snowstorm

    A snow storm that has yet to fully reach Newtown as of late Thursday afternoon has town officials planning on locations for residents who may need to seek shelter should their homes lose electricity, and therefore heat.

    The snow storm will keep Newtown under a Winter Weather Warning until at least 1 pm Friday. Forecasters are also predicting temperatures at or below zero, and wind chills bringing additional concerns. Connecticut has not seen these types of temperatures for more than 15 years.

  • Governor To Be Briefed On 12/14 Probe Status

    Governor Dannel P. Malloy is expected to get an update sometime next week from officials involved in the ongoing state police probe into the 12/14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, at which time he may learn when the report will be released publicly.

    The governor would receive that update from the state’s attorney office, which is overseeing the state police investigation into the deaths of 20 first-graders and six educators at the school, according to Andrew Doba, a spokesman for the governor.

  • The Governor Takes A Tour Of Sandy Hook Center

    Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s arrived in Sandy Hook Wednesday morning for a walking tour of the business district in the village center. First Selectman Pat Llodra was waiting to guide him along the new sidewalks there and the two barely had time to greet each other before they were surrounded by news crews, cameras, and microphones. The questions began.
