Governor Dannel Malloy

The town of North Stonington is flying the Connecticut State flag upside down at its town hall. The town’s Republican leaders are protesting Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy’s proposed cuts to cities and towns.

Sean Murphy is First Selectman of North Stonington, one of the many cities and towns facing big cuts in the money it gets from the state.

“The flag flying upside down on the pole indicates being in distress and I think that is a mild term for the current situation that we have at the Capital.”

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy formally announced his plans not to run in the 2018 election at a news conference Thursday afternoon at the state Capitol.

“Serving as Connecticut’s 88th governor is the honor of a lifetime, second only to being a father and a husband,” said Malloy. “And it will continue to be an honor to work as hard as I can. I will give you one guarantee: no governor’s ever going to outwork me.”

This has been quite an eventful week for the Donald Trump presidential campaign. A few days ago the campaign’s top management was beefed up with additional personnel. Last weekend the GOP presidential candidate made a campaign stop in Fairfield, Connecticut. The stop baffled conventional wisdom because Connecticut is not considered a battleground state.
