Steven C.F. Anderson, Managing Director, InfrastructureUSA, spoke with Governor Dannel Malloy at Regional Plan Associationʼs 21st annual Regional Assembly, “Innovation and the Global City.” The event took place on April 15th in New York City.
On November 2, 2010, Dannel P. Malloy was elected the 88th Governor of the State of Connecticut and the first governor to have been elected under the state’s clean elections program. He is committed to strengthening the state’s economy, growing Connecticut businesses, and bringing jobs back to cities and towns.
Governor Malloy was Stamford’s longest serving Mayor, serving for 14 years from 1995 to 2009. Under his leadership, Stamford underwent a drastic transformation and became one of the country’s top ten most livable cities, according to Forbes magazine. He brought nearly 5,000 new jobs to the city, led the fight for more affordable housing, championed transportation efforts such as the Stamford Urban Transitway, and helped to reduce the crime rate by 60 percent. He also implemented the first city-wide pre-kindergarten program, ensuring all four year olds could attend school regardless of their parents’ financial situation.
