Malloy talks jobs, bullying in Greenwich

Jobs, taxes and bullying in schools dominated Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s state of the State address and question and answer session with constituents tonight at Greenwich Town Hall.

On the topic of regionalization, Malloy said: “I think communities should embark to do together whatever they wish to do together. And those that don’t wish to do it shouldn’t. But that’s not a justification for wasting money on more planning districts than we actually need in the state.”

He added, “Greenwich is as closely tied to Norwalk or for that matter a bottleneck in Bridgeport as Stamford or any place else. These are regional issues. Rail is a regional issue.”

Malloy answered more than a dozen questions posed by a group of more than 50 attendees. The event was sponsored by the Greenwich League of Women Voters.
