    Gov. Dannel Malloy last week proposed several tax hikes that will affect every resident in the state and he will be traveling to local cities and towns to meet with resident to listen to their thoughts, suggestions and concerns.

    “It really is my preference to be out there, talking with people in the flesh, hearing their thoughts and communicating in a civil manner that will bring out the best and most productive changes benefitting the State of Connecticut,” Malloy said. “It’s important that we have a chance to talk about some of the changes I’m proposing to help create new jobs and get our state’s fiscal house in order, and I want to hear what people think.”

    Malloy will hold 17 town hall-style meetings and said he held similarly styled constituent meetings when he was mayor of Stamford and wants to continue meeting with residents in a similar fashion.
