And now for something completely different. A smiling Gov. Dannel P. Malloy opened his annual holiday speech to the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday by comparing himself to a man prematurely given up for dead during the Black Plague, albeit the one who refused to go gently in an absurdist Monty Python comedy about the Middle Ages.
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.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy was introduced Tuesday at the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce’s annual holiday breakfast by a sponsor of the event and his political party: Rodney Powell, one of the Northeast Utilities executives who has made the gas-and-electric utility the biggest source of individual contributions to the Connecticut Democratic Party in 2013.
