McDonald an Excellent Choice for CT Supreme Court

Andrew McDonald is measured, thoughtful and brilliant first. He’s openly gay second. McDonald has been nominated to the Connecticut Supreme Court by his longtime friend and colleague Gov. Dannel Malloy. He is an excellent choice and should be easily confirmed.

I worked with McDonald when he was a state a senator and I was the communications director for the Senate Democrats. He was always one of the brightest in the room at any given time. He was persuasive yet never overly aggressive in the caucus room particularly on issues about which he was passionate. He fought for his home city of Stamford when it came to local and education aid to cities and towns. He fought for equal rights and fairness for all.

McDonald is also openly gay which should matter to absolutely no one. He’ll be the first openly gay state Supreme Court Justice. He never defined himself as the “Gay Senator” but he also never shied away from fervently fighting for things like gay marriage.

Malloy and McDonald go way back. He worked for Malloy when he mayor of Stamford before being McDonald was elected to the state senate. He then went with Malloy to the governor’s office and the chief of legal affairs.

McDonald’s gain is Malloy’s loss. McDonald’s nomination will leave a big hole in the governor’s staff. He was clearly a key player beyond “legal affairs.” He fills the vacancy left by Justice Lubbie Harper Jr. who turned 70 in November. More on McDonald is here.
