HARTFORD, Conn. – Before he arrived to give the Working Families Party volunteers a five-minute pep talk, the head of one of the state’s largest unions and a local state representative reminded the crowd of all the progressive things Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy did during his first term.

From raising the minimum wage to making Connecticut the first state to implement a paid sick days law, Sal Luciano, executive director of AFSCME Council 4 and state Rep. Ed Vargas, reminded the crowd of about 50 volunteers huddled in the second floor offices of the Hartford headquarters why they need to support Malloy.

“There couldn’t be a bigger difference between these two candidates,” Luciano said, referring to Malloy and his Republican challenger Tom Foley. “One cares about working people. The other knows how to lay them off.”
