Patch's Poll: What Do You Think of the New State Tourism Slogan?

Two-year campaign will say 'Connecticut: Still Revolutionary'

The new state tourism slogan, announced yesterday by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, is getting some mixed reviews from pundits around the state.

The Hartford Courant, in an editorial, called it "not bad" while Courant columnist and WNPR radio host Colin McEnroe said in his blog that the slogan was "a very odd choice for a state whose most famous contribution to the American Revolution was Benedict Arnold."

seems to have gotten better reviews.

The campaign will be rolled out over two years at a cost of $27 million dollars. What do you think of the slogan? The campaign? Take our poll and tell us more in the comments.

In addition, Thompson submachine guns were assembled in Bridgeport during WWII, and the largest supplier of Gun Powder to the Federal Army during the Civil War was located in Havardville, a section of Enfield (the area is currently known as Powder Hollow). David, I like your idea! I'm sure Malloy won't give a hoot, however. Dang, he could have saved OUR $27 million and conducted an informal focus group on the Patch for ideas!

The state has been fighting to get the Colt factory and area national historic landmark/historic park recognition for years. They've actually made good headway and it most likely will happen. I'll check back when it happens to read people complaining about the cost, of course.

@Long Time Resident: I agree that The Malloy Administration (and others before him) policies are not new, groundbreaking or even innovative. Each administration has exacerbated the mistakes of his/her predecessor. But if “the people” make it his/her daily responsibility to share with family, freinds, neighbors, coworkers (your sphere of influence) when you meet a new candidate that impress you and why maybe this November we can begin the process of electing new legislators willing to take CT down "revolutionary" path (I don’t mean revolutionary in the context of violence).

The only thing revolutionary in CT nowadays is the methods used by government to lie, cheat, and steal from its citizens while directly funneling all of that money to them and their friends. New England politicians excel at this like no other region of the US, except in California.
