GREENWICH - Gov. Dannel Malloy continued his budget tour tonight with a town hall meeting in Greenwich.

The governor answered questions from residents about his across-the-board tax hikes.

Residents acknowledged the difficult situation the governor inherited, but said his proposal to provide affordable health care wasn't sufficient. They also spoke out against increasing taxes and calling for union concessions.

Malloy says he's taking everyone's comments from all 17 town meetings into consideration as he continues to figure out ways to create a better budget for the state.
