Spotlight On Connecticut Gubernorial Candidates With Disabilities

| No Comments


GoodOne.jpgRegardless of who'll win today's gubernorial race in Connecticut, this contest will be notable for the fact that the candidates from both main parties, Tom Foley (R) and Dan Malloy (D), have disabilities.  (Mr. Foley has Bell's palsy; Mr. Malloy has dyslexia.) Further, both the candidates and the public have found that their respective disabilities doesn't mean that they will allow their conditions to impede their abilities to govern. The Norwich Bulletin has more on how this particular election will result in Connecticut having a governor with "a disability or condition that sets them apart" (the Bulletin's words) for the first time and what it means in general  here.
