Today, U.S. Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01) proudly announced that Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy will be his guest at President Obama's State of the Union address. Tomorrow night's address by President Obama will focus on rebuilding our economy so it's competitive, growing, and working for all Americans.
"It is my honor to invite my friend, Governor Malloy, as my guest to this year's State of the Union address. President Obama will present our nation's agenda for creating jobs and a plan for us to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world," said Congressman Larson. "Strengthening our economy and bolstering competiveness are goals, both myself and Governor Malloy, believe are needed to secure our state's prosperity. We face challenges nationally and at home, however with common ground with our President and a strong partnership with our Governor, I am confident that we will succeed now and win in the future."
"I've been clear that my main focus as Connecticut's governor is to create new jobs while getting our fiscal house in order," said Governor Malloy. "I'm eager to hear President Obama's agenda for some of the very same issues. Getting people back to work while facing some very real challenges, both in the state and nationally, won't be an easy task. But it's a necessary one. I'll work with anybody and everybody who is committed to this recovery, including our delegation in Washington and President Obama."
