Governor Ned Lamont in Conversation with Mark Pazniokas

In person: Real Art Ways, 56 Arbor St., Hartford
Live streaming option available via Zoom.
Gov. Ned Lamont won a convincing reelection last year as a defender of the fiscal guardrails that have capped spending and pushed the state to use its historic run of budget surpluses to fill the rainy day fund and begin paying down Connecticut’s considerable pension debt.
Is that what the governor sees as his mandate and mission for the next four years, imposing fiscal discipline on a state that has the second-highest per-capita debt in the U.S. and has struggled through much of the past three decades to grow jobs in the economy?
Join us for a public conversation with Lamont, a Democratic governor who has positioned himself between a Republican legislative minority that insists the state can afford broader tax cuts and a Democratic majority intent on addressing unmet needs and income inequality.
