Governor Dannel P. Malloy will serve as the keynote speaker Thursday for a $1000 per plate breakfast to benefit the Democratic Party’s State Central Committee. The breakfast, from 8 am to 9:30 am, will be held at the Society Room of Hartford. One wonders if the OWS crowd and or the Working Families Party will be protesting, outside the location at 31 Pratt Street. Afterall, aren’t the big money people in their crosshairs?
The venue is a favorite of Malloy’s. It’s where he held his “victory” party on election night, even though he was not crowned the victor, until days later, in the controversial 2010 election. Will some, if not all of the benefactors of the governor’s largesse in the controversial “First Five” initiative be among those in attendance? And which big city mayors will fork over $1000 to dine on gourmet home fries?
