Tomorrow will be a busy day for Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy. Re-elected for a second term, Malloy, a Democrat, is scheduled to be sworn into office for a second time Wednesday, January 7, 1:30 p.m. at the William O’Neill State Armory, 360 Broad Street, in Hartford -doors open at 11:30 a.m.
Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman is slated to be sworn in during a separate ceremony earlier in the day.
“It is an honor and a priviledge to serve the people of the state of Connecticut and Nancy and I look forward to sharing this day with as many residents as we can,” Malloy was quoted as saying in a press release posted on the governor’s website.
Other constitutional officers are also on tap to be sworn in at the armory along with Malloy. The event is free and open to the public with seating available on a “first come, first serve basis”. People are asked not to bring large bags in order to expedite movement through security checkpoints.
Concurrently, at 11:30 a.m., the Inaugration Parade is is expected to step-off near the State Capitol, make its way through the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch and end at the armory.
The inaugural ball will be held tomorrow night at the Connecticut Convention Center. Go to http://www.ct.inauguralball.com for more information.
