Connecticut State Police Union endorse Malloy/Wyman

Democratic nominees for Governor and Lt. Governor Dan Malloy and Nancy Wyman receive their second endorsement Monday, this time from the Connecticut State Police Union.

In making their endorsement,. union leadership pointed to Malloy and Wyman's "years of experience and demonstrated commitment to working with local law enforcement."

"The truth is, Connecticut can only have safe communities if people have good jobs, fair wages and benefits that allow them to support their families," said Sgt. Andrew Matthews, Union president. "Dan Malloy and Nancy Wyman have a proven history of understanding that public safety is a priority for the people of Connecticut. You don't have to look any further than Stamford, where during his tenure Dan helped lower crime by 63 percent, making it one of the safest cities in the country."

"As a former prosecutor and mayor of a large city, I have a deep respect and appreciation for hte role of law enforcement," said Malloy. "In Stamford, so many things wouldn't have been possible if we didn't lower crime and make our city safe. I'm honored to have the support of the Connecticut State Police Union and look forward to partnering with them as Governor."

Malloy added that the work and value of Connecticut's State Police was especially evident now, as the state mourns the loss of Tfc. Kenneth Hall, recently killed in the line of duty.

The Connecticut State Police Union is the exclusive collective bargining representative for Connecticut's State Troopers and Sergeants.
