Malloy leads other CT leaders on D.C. visit

The Hartford Business Journal (Hartford, CT) January 25, 2011

"Tuesday is a big day in Washington for Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and other Connecticut policy and business leaders.
Malloy was invited as the daylong guest of Congressman John B. Larson, D-1st District, on Capitol Hill, before the pair attends President Barack Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night, a Larson spokesman says.
Malloy likely will meet with other Congressional leaders and may attend pre- and post-address receptions, spokesman Paul Mounds said.
Before flying back to Connecticut Wednesday morning, Malloy's office says the governor will meet with a candidate for the Department of Transportation commissioner post.
He also is scheduled to meet with Connecticut Congressman Joe Courtney to discuss challenges, issues and concerns about Route 11 and other transportation matters in the southeastern part of the state.
Also in Washington Tuesday are leaders from The Governor's Prevention Partnership who are there to hear First Lady Michelle Obama provide the keynote address for The National Mentoring Summit.
The summit's goal is to develop strategies that leverage mentoring to increase graduation rates among America's youth and position them for success.
Participants from Connecticut include: Jill Spineti, CEO of The Governor's Prevention Partnership; and Roland Harmon and Diane Raffanello, both of The Connecticut Mentoring Partnership." Read More
