"Mary Glassman has dedicated her life to public service, working hard to make our state a better place," said Malloy. "She has experience in state government and as a local elected official. She will be a tremendous partner to me, both in this campaign and governing this state, and I am proud that she will join my ticket as our candidate for Lt. Governor."
"Mary began her political career by pulling off a stunning political upset by beating an incumbent Republican to win an office that no Democrat had won for decades -- and I know that together she and I are going to do it again!" said Malloy. (Malloy)
There is a lengthy biography and resume of Glassman included in the press release. For your reference, I'll post it in the comment section.
Glassman seems to be someone that a lot of party insiders know. She's also from suburban Hartford County and the very edge of the 5th Congressional District), although it's worth noting that the Farmington Valley is deep in the heart of Rell Country. So, a solid choice, although not a mind-blowing one.
We'll see what DeStefano does tomorrow.
