Nancy Wyman Doubles Down on Dan Malloy's Failed Policies

Wyman casts tie-breaking vote for union concession agreement

Leave it to Connecticut Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman to double down on Gov. Dan Malloy's failed legacy. 

From RGA: 

"This week, Failed Democrat Governor Dan Malloy’s chief enabler, Nancy Wyman, used her office as Lieutenant Governor to break a tie in the State Senate to pass a union concession agreement. The deal, which was negotiated by Malloy, is certain to cause even more tax hikes and program cuts for a state already rocked by budgetary crisis. In casting her vote, Wyman, who has openly expressed her interest in running to succeed Malloy in 2018, has chosen to double down on Malloy’s policies, which have resulted in multiple credit downgrades, high-profile business departures, and the highest unemployment rate in the region for Connecticut."

Wyman has made it pretty clear... A vote for her is a vote to continue Malloy's failed policies.

After day of drama, Senate Democrats unite to back concessions


On a tie-breaking vote by Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, the Senate gave final approval Monday to a state-employee concessions deal after Democratic leaders mollified three dissenting colleagues with a promise to make a good-faith effort for fiscal reforms.


Uniting all 18 members of the caucus hinged on the willingness by Senate Democratic leaders to at least endorse in concept a dozen fiscal and collective-bargaining reforms sought by three wary Democratic colleagues, any one of whom held the power to kill the deal by voting with Republicans in the evenly divided Senate.

...

The show of unity did not go beyond the vote. The three holdouts — Sens. Paul Doyle of Wethersfield, Joan Hartley of Waterbury and Gayle Slossberg of Milford — skipped a post-session press conference with Looney and other Democrats, a sign of remaining difficulties in resolving an impasse that has left Connecticut without a budget for 31 days."
