Dan Malloy on Corporations



Businesses should suggest which state regulations to abandon

One of the contrasts Malloy makes with his Republican predecessors Rell and Rowland is the pace and level of investments made by the Department of Economic and Community Development. He soft-pedals the big investments his administration has made in major corporations, such as the $71 million package of grants and loans that enticed Cigna to expand here and declare its Bloomfield campus as its national headquarters. Republicans have indicated they intended to make "corporate welfare" an issue next year.

Small Business Express Program: grants for 944 companies

It's not every day that a governor promotes a startup company's line of nutrition supplements. Then again, it's not every day that a nutrition-supplement company promotes a first-term governor's re-election. Both happened as Gov. Malloy toured ThinkitDrinkit, a Hartford startup that's received more than $430,000 in economic assistance and job-training funds as it has hired 26 workers at hourly rates ranging from $15 to $20.

"This is how you build the economy in the long run," Malloy said, pointing to ThinkitDrinkit as one of 944 small companies that have received grants and cheap loans from the Small Business Express Program.

Malloy accepted a sample drink from a young woman who wore a white lab coat with a large button featuring the company logo and "Malloy 2014!" The same message was written on a whiteboard in the company's test kitchen.
