On issues related to education, Connecticut’s Governor Dannell Malloy is one of the worst governors in the nation.

Jonathan Pelto, who served in the state legislature, is considering a run against Malloy. Pelto knows that Malloy has repeatedly let down students, parents, teachers, and communities. Malloy has followed the money–the hedge fund money–which supports charter schools for the few.

Pelto would also challenge Malloy’s corporate tax breaks and his failed economic development policies.

Win, lose, or draw, Pelto’s candidacy would be a breath of fresh air for Connecticut. It would force Malloy to defend his giveaway of public education to private corporations.
