The official transition web site for Governor-elect Dan Malloy is up and running, giving job-seekers and constituents a way to reach out to the administration in its formative weeks.

“During my campaign I often talked about transparency and staying in touch with the people of Connecticut to make sure they knew what I was doing on their behalf. This website is a good step in that direction,” Malloy said in a statement released today.

The site is, and it includes a form for suggestions or ideas. For job seekers, there there is a hyperlink to its email address,

“I encourage those people who have suggestions or ideas for my administration to share them with us through our web form. In addition, I’ve told my transition team that we’re looking for the best and the brightest for every position we fill within state government,” Malloy said.

“People who would like to join our efforts can send their resume and cover letter to us for consideration,” he said. “In the coming weeks and months, we’ll launch additional ways for the people of Connecticut to stay in touch with me and get answers to their questions, and I look forward to being an active and accessible governor.”

State government has about 55,000 employees, but only about 100 are direct appointments of the governor — and Malloy promised to during the campaign to cut that number by 15 percent.
