What was the cost for the Tax Payer for this lavish event.

There was no cost to taxpayers. The event is fully funded by the money people pay to attend it. It was $200 per person this year and about 1,600 people attended.

Christine: Does that include the governors security detail, personal driver, etc?

Malloy’s security detail is with him all the time. He doesn’t have a choice. He can’t fire them because he’s not in charge of them. They come with the office.

$200 a ticket, clearly a Man of the People.

So if your favorite Governor won the election, would you ask these same questions? BTW, we had a “ball” at the “ball”.. .
