Governor-Elect Dan Malloy says that when he takes office in January, creating jobs will be a priority and Fairfield County will be a key player.

“Imagine how much more successful we could be if we had a state government that understood the kinds of investments that need to be made in Fairfield County so that we can bring more jobs to Fairfield County,” Malloy told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau.

Malloy says that the overall message will be that Connecticut is open for business.
