Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy rejected suggestions on Thursday that he asked his education commissioner to step down. The Governor and Commissioner Stefan Pryor appeared unified at an event announcing funding for struggling school districts.
Pryor announced last week he would not seek a second term if Malloy wins re-election. Malloy says it was not because Pryor was asked not to.
“It was a decision that he reached," Malloy said. "We did have the opportunity to talk about it. I did receive his letter on Monday. And as you note, I appear alongside my friend today.”
