Coffee with the Future Governor, Anyone?

I'm not saying Dan Malloy is the next governor. He's just the first up at the chamber's series of coffee with the candiates. Catch him Thursday morning at the crack of dawn... er... 8 a.m. at the chamber. Here's what I wrote for Wednesday's Bristol Press (www.bristolpress.com) about it:

BRISTOL – Starting with Democrat Dan Malloy on Thursday morning, candidates for governor will be invited to meet local business leaders through meetings set up by the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce.
Chamber President Mike Nicastro announced at the organization’s legislative breakfast that it would host visits with all the candidates for governor, a group that he said seems to continue to grow.
Malloy will be the first, said Nicastro, and is scheduled for an 8 a.m. coffee at the chamber’s Main Street office on Thursday.
“We definitely want to hear from these candidates for governor,” said Nicastro.
Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele, a Republican who is running for governor, is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 25, and others will follow, Nicastro said.
“The chamber’s going to be very busy,” said Nicastro.
Nicastro invited anyone to attend.
“Come, sit, listen to these folks,” said Nicastro. “Ask questions.”
Leadership in the current economic climate – and in the uncertain years ahead – is crucial, he said, and without it, Connecticut will have serious problems.
