Malloy responds to Obama's denial of individual flood aid

Democratic candidate for Governor Dan Malloy responded Wednesday April 28 to President Obama's decision not to supply individual aid to Connecticut homeowners, renters and employers who were affected my the March flooding:
"Simply put, I don't agree with this decision. In recent weeks, I've spent much time in Norwich, East Lyme, Ledyard and other towns in the region - the damage in these areas is substantial. For small businesses already struggling in a down economy, or for homeowners barely making mortgage payments, the repair costs could well be the final straw."
"We're all aware of the economic problems facing the country, but we also know that out government's most fundamental role should be to assist those most in need, especially in times of unforeseen emergency - times like these."
