Dan Malloy on Jobs

 


We created 9,400 new, private sector jobs in the last year

A little more than a year ago, on the day I was sworn in as your Governor, I said we had to [address the financial crisis] while focusing simultaneously on job creation; that by focusing on those things, we would stabilize the state's finances. I said that was critical if we wanted the private sector to do what it does best: create jobs.

One year later, it turns out that by taking that less-traveled road we have passed through the crucible of that crisis. In the process, we've brought positive, far-reaching, meaningful, and systemic change to Hartford.

First and foremost, we grew jobs in Connecticut last year--9,400 new, private sector jobs were created, the first year of job growth since 2008.

The best evidence of the change we've brought to Hartford can be found in some of the arguments we've been having around here lately. Instead of arguing over how much more money state employee contracts will cost taxpayers, we're arguing over how much money those revised contracts will save.
