Significant economic challenges still face Connecticut, meaning significant political challenges for Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. But two pieces of good economic news came his way Friday, and he was happy to trumpet them.
The state Department of Labor revised its employment numbers upward, giving Malloy a midterm number of about 22,000 private sector jobs created since taking office in January 2011. And an insurer is moving from Rye Brook, N.Y., to Stamford. The department previously had reported a decline for 2012.
"It's a great day to be Irish," Malloy said.
