"Governor Malloy's 2014 agenda continues to restore the Earned Income Tax Credit to 30 percent and the proposed increase to $10.10 for the state's minimum wage will help more women, minorities and urban residents rise out of poverty," he said. "The governor's urban record and agenda speak for themselves."
"I think Mr. Foley is going to try to do what he did last time. He's going to try and buy an election. And I don't think that's going to resonate with the voters in our cities, especially when he's not even going to come out and say he's for a state increase in the minimum wage to $10.10. That is not going to resonate with voters in the state, cities or towns," Hallinan said.
