Dannel P. Malloy
Democrat Dannel Malloy is Connecticut’s 88th governor and is serving his second term.
Since 2011, his administration’s top agenda items have included job creation, improving public education, stabilizing the state’s finances, making long-overdue investments in the state’s transportation infrastructure, and protecting the environment.
Since Malloy took office in January 2011, Connecticut became the first state in the nation to pass a minimum wage increase to $10.10 an hour and the first to pass legislation mandating paid sick leave for workers.
He is a former mayor of Stamford, where he served from 1995-2009, the longest mayoral tenure in the city’s history.
Prior to becoming mayor of Stamford, Malloy was an Assistant District Attorney in Brooklyn from 1980 to 1984, and a member of the Stamford Board of Finance from 1983-1994.
He earned both a B.A. and a J.D. at Boston College. He and his wife Cathy were married in 1982 and have three sons.
