Hartford, Ct. – Connecticut Democratic Party Chairman Nick Balletto released the following statement.
“Governor Malloy, Lt. Governor Wyman, and Democratic legislative leaders deserve our thanks. Before this deal, Sikorsky was ready to manufacture the King Stallion helicopter in another state, but, thanks to good work by the governor and his team, Connecticut will continue to be a world leader in aerospace manufacturing for years to come. Sikorsky’s continued commitment to Connecticut will not only preserve and create 8,000 jobs at the company, but also create even more new positions through increased in-state investments at small businesses down the supply chain.
“This deal is a win-win for our state and our economic future, and I’m proud of our Democratic legislative leaders for taking quick action to get it passed.”
