Thank you, Connecticut

Dear Friends,

Thank you for the great honor of electing me your next governor. Together with our lieutenant governor-elect, Susan Bysiewicz, I will work hard everyday to grow our economy, make government more efficient, and improve the quality of life for all our residents.

I am proud of Connecticut’s historically high midterm turnout in this year's election, and I hear your message loud and clear it’s time for a change. Connecticut’s residents reject division, and they want us to come together to address the big challenges we face.

I thank Bob Stefanowski and Oz Griebel for a spirited race.

I thank every candidate who ran for state office, and I congratulate those who won. I look forward to working with the 2019 General Assembly and bringing Democrats and Republicans together to turn our state around.

Over the next two months, I will work closely with the Office of the Governor to ensure a smooth transition. That hard work begins today.

Thank you,

Ned Lamont
