Malloy at the reception
Escorted by a troop of bagpipe musicians Governor-elect Dan Malloy, and his wife, Kathy, entered the Old Town Hall in Stamford to the thunderous applause and admiration of hundreds of guests at the Green Tie Celebration Wednesday evening. The event was presented by the Democratic City Committee. Wine, beer, soda, hors d’oeuvres, and pastries were enjoyed by all.

A sea of green ties worn by supporters who donated $50 to cover the cost of the celebration set the stage for Malloy’s homage to his Irish heritage, including explanation of his ‘lucky green tie” superstition. Governor-elect Malloy’s new driver, Shamus, attired in full leprechaun garb, made his first public appearance.

Introduced by his older brother, Bill Malloy, the Governor-elect offered a heartfelt thanks to all of the supporters to whom he attributed his road to success. "It's nice to be home," Malloy said as he addressed the crowd.

Mayor Michael Pavia offered a warm congratulations and said that he was “looking forward to a partnership of greatness between Stamford and Hartford”.

This reception came on the heels of Malloy’s earlier announcement in the day of the appointment to his cabinet of his former aide, Benjamin Barnes as head of his budget office.
