The Association of Retired Teachers of Connecticut has endorsed Governor Dannel Malloy in the 2014 gubernatorial election. ARTC represents approximately 16,000 Connecticut retired teachers. Following a straw poll vote in which Malloy defeated challenger Tom Foley by more than a three to one margin, the ARTC PAC formally voted to endorse Governor Malloy. ARTC President Tom Singleton stated " We are pleased to announce our endorsement of Governor Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman for re-election based upon their continuing support of initiatives to improve public education in Connecticut and positive actions to fully fund the retired teachers' pension fund as well as maintaining solvency in the Health Insurance Premium Account ( HIPA ). In addition, Governor Malloy was successful in passing a bill to create a partial state income tax exemption on retiree pensions during the last legislative session. The Governor's support and accomplishments over the past four years has provided a greater sense of security for retired teachers and enhance the probability that they will spend their retiree years in Connecticut."
