In a release from the governor's office, his staff outlined his busy day Wednesday, the same day President Obama will visit the state
Here is what the governor has on his agenda, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (And a little birdie tells us his day is not over then as there is expected to be a stop in Bridgeport after the Milford event.)
On Wednesday morning, Governor Dannel P. Malloy will keynote the Connecticut Business and Industry Association’s “2014 Connecticut Business Day,” where he will speak with the state’s business leaders about his agenda for Connecticut’s future.
Following that, Governor Malloy will speak at the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education’s “Day on the Hill,” where he will speak about his efforts to ensure that the state’s children receive a high quality education, including his plan to achieve universal access to pre-kindergarten and make college more affordable.
In the afternoon, Governor Malloy will hold an event with President Barack Obama in New Britain on the minimum wage and the importance of giving hardworking Americans the raise they deserve. They will be joined by Governor Deval L. Patrick of Massachusetts, Governor Lincoln D. Chafee of Rhode Island and Governor Peter E. Shumlin of Vermont.
In the evening, Governor Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman will hold a community forum in Milford, where they will speak with members of the public about their agenda for Connecticut’s future. This will be the second event in this year’s series of gubernatorial community forums.
