Gov. Dan Malloy Checks On, Umm, Budget

By Ann-Marie Adams, Staff Writer

HARTFORD — Guess which top state official was spotted downtown today?

Connecticut’s own Gov. Dannel P. Malloy was spotted Monday in the State House Square branch of Wachovia Bank checking on his own budget.

Yep. He stood at the teller’s window as he made his deposit and checked his balance.

When asked by a reporter if he was indeed doing his own banking, the governor paused for a photo and responded:

“Well, someone has to do it.”

The governor was not alone, however. Nor did he have an entourage.

There was one private security officer in the background with an eagle eye.

But to the other customers in the bank, the governor was  just, well, a regular joe.

“I guess he’s really trying to get a hold of his own finances,” quipped one bank customer from Windsor.”He has to do that first before he tackles the state’s budget gap.”
