Democrats Faceoff Tonight

by LonSeidman

Tonight six Democrats competing for the right to lead the State of Connecticut for the next four years will be featured in an informational forum on Channel 30. The event airs live at 7 pm.

The event will include Waterbury Mayor Michael Jarjura who has expressed an interest in the state’s top job. Jarjura has experience as a state legislator and assistant Attorney General. It will also include:

•Former state legislator Juan Figueroa, who has taken a leave from his role as president of Universal Health Care Foundation
•Simsbury First Selectwoman Mary Glassman
•Former U.S. Senate candidate Ned Lamont
•Former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy
•Ridgefield First Selectman Rudy Marconi

Last night eight Republicans tackled the state budget deficit, tolls, the death penalty and other issues.

The Whisper will ask you which of the Democrats impressed you and which didn’t after the debate tonight.
