Andrew Doba is stepping down as the communication director for Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and will be succeeded by Mark Bergman, who handled communications for the governor’s re-election campaign.
CROMWELL – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a politician who’s never gone long in reminding voters of the weak economy and fiscal crisis he inherited, seemed to turn a page Tuesday morning with a speech focusing on the new term that begins Jan. 7.
Just one month from adopting the next state budget, legislators have learned the $19 billion plan they got from Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has a $70 million hole in it, according to a new report from nonpartisan analysts. Republican legislative leaders say the shortfall happened because the administration dismissed a warning about rising health care costs five months ago.
