Dan Malloy
Mayor of Stamford, Connecticut

15 June 2008: Born 1955, Stamford’s four-term mayor, Dan Malloy, is the youngest of eight children and suffered severe learning difficulties at school. However, this did not prevent him graduating magna cum laude from Boston College and obtaining a law degree from its Law School, having undertaken his bar exam orally. Between 1980 and 1984 Malloy served as an assistant district attorney in Brooklyn, where he tried 23 cases and obtained 22 convictions. Hen then practiced law as a partner in the Stamford firm of Abate and Fox until 1995.

In 1995 Malloy turfed out the Republican incumbent in the Stamford mayoral election and has been re-elected three times since. Malloy attempted a run for governor in 2004, obtaining the endorsement of the Democratic Party locally but being beaten in the primary by New Haven mayor John DeStefano, who lost the 2006 election to Republican incumbent M. Jodi Rell. Undaunted, he was re-elected to a fourth term in 2005 and will serve until 2009. Malloy continues to comment on state Democratic politics via his well-read blog (seen by some as an unofficial campaign marker for the 2010 gubernatorial election) and is a member of the National Conference of Democratic Mayors’ nominating committee.

Malloy is a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition, co-chaired by New York’s Michael Bloomberg and Boston’s Thomas Menino. He is married to wife Cathy and they have three sons together.

Stamford operates the mayor-board system of government and is considered part of the New York Metro area, though one of the safest and most affluent cities within it and the nation.
