As mayor of Stamford, he was Dannel Malloy.
As a gubernatorial candidate, he was Dan Malloy.
Now, Connecticut’s new governor says those are both wrong. He is Dannel P. Malloy.
Well, what do you think? After all, he’s your governor.
Thanks for trying to explain the terminlogy towards the rookies!
He is our governor; but it is his name. Governor Malloy has expressed his desire to be referred to by his full name: Dannel P. Malloy. It is simple good manners to do so. To do otherwise is to engage in gratuitously insulting behavior.
