After announcing earlier this week he would hold his next community forum in Milford on March 5, Gov. Dannel Malloy's office reported late Friday that the public talk would take place at the Milford City Hall Auditorium beginning at 7 p.m.

In a press release, the governor said he would like to discuss "the responsible management of the state’s finances, efforts to support job growth, proposals to increase universal access to pre-kindergarten and make higher education a little more affordable, and increase the state’s minimum wage."

Malloy's office noted that residents "who would like an opportunity to ask the Governor a question should arrive prior to the start of the event to submit their names on the sign-up sheet."

The forum is open to the public and tickets are not necessary. 

“In the last three years, the private sector has grown more than 40,000 private sector jobs, the state’s long-term debt has been reduced by more than $11.5 billion, and the state budget went from a $3.6 billion deficit to a $500 million surplus. These are all signs of progress, however there is still more work to do,” Malloy stated in a press release. “Engaging the public at forums like these is a critical component in our strategy to make our communities stronger and our economy more competitive.” 

Dates and locations for additional community forums throughout the state will be announced during the coming weeks as each event is scheduled. 

Malloy and Lt. Governor Wyman have held these forums each year since their inauguration in 2011.
