NORWALK - Gov.-elect Dan Malloy (D-Conn.) says he has a lot of work to do as he prepares his transition into office and how to tackle the state?s multibillion-dollar deficit.

Malloy sat down with News 12 Connecticut today to discuss the changes he plans to make. Earlier this week, he took his first look at a preliminary state budget and says he?s ready for the challenge.

The Stamford mayor says he plans to assemble a team that will close the gap. He says other items on his agenda include addressing transportation problems on I-95 and the Merritt Parkway.

Malloy and his wife are planning to leave Stamford and move into the governor?s residence in West Hartford.
