    We are thrilled to announce that Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy — Chair of the Democratic Governors Association — will deliver the keynote address at our Heritage Dinner!

    Dan Malloy is serving the state of Connecticut in his second term as governor. During his first term in office, Gov. Malloy oversaw the state’s largest private sector growth since the 1990s. Under his leadership, Connecticut became the first state in the nation to pass legislation providing paid sick leave and the first state in the nation to pass legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.

    Gov. Malloy has made serious investments in Connecticut’s middle class, and his keynote address will illustrate the progress a state can make when its leaders have the right priorities.

    PCs and Dem AZ members can purchase tickets for $125. CSLC members are entitled to a complimentary seat as part of their membership. PC’s, DEM AZ and CSLC members should reserve their tickets by contacting Herschel Fink at 602-234-6808 or hfink@azdem.org.
