What: Candidates for Governor of Connecticut will participate in a candidate forum. The event, centered on the theme of “Prospering Communities, Thriving Families,” is sponsored by several statewide nonprofit organizations. It will explore the candidates’ views on a range of issues relating to family economic security, including the state budget, jobs, economic development, health, and education. It is free and open to the public. John Dankosky, News Director and Host of Where We Live on WNPR FM, will moderate the forum.
The event is co-sponsored by several statewide nonprofit organizations: Connecticut Association for Human Services, Connecticut Voices for Children, Connecticut Association for Community Action, Connecticut Women's Education and Legal Fund, Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies, End Hunger Connecticut!, Connecticut Nonprofit Human Services Cabinet, and Legal Assistance Resource Center of Connecticut.
When: Monday, May 10 at 6:30 pm.
Where: SBM Charitable Foundation Auditorium, Manchester Community College, 161 Hillstown Road, Manchester CT. Parking in Lot C; directions
Who: Candidates who have confirmed their attendance at the forum are Democrats Juan Figueroa, Dan Malloy, Rudy Marconi, and Republicans C. Duffy Acevedo and Oz Griebel, and Independent Tom Marsh. However, Juan Figueroa has dropped out of the race. It seems likely that all the others except Dan Malloy and Tom Marsh will do so as well (although this announcement makes the Wizard of Oz a little more viable.). But, hey,
I admire their courage and willingness to run,
and they each deserve their moment in the sun:
C. Duffy Acevedo
