Patch's Poll: Do You Like CT's New Tourism Slogan?

"Connecticut: Still Revolutionary." Will it bring out-of-staters to us in droves? Take our poll and tell us what you think in the comments.

Earlier this week, Gov. Dannel Malloy unveiled Connecticut's new tourism slogan: "Connecticut: Still Revolutionary."

"'Still Revolutionary' speaks to Connecticut’s deep roots in the founding of this country and reminds us that we still have that independent, revolutionary spirit," Malloy said in a press release.

"For centuries we have been the home of literary greats, innovators and natural wonders — an incredibly diverse array of products and talent, all right here in Connecticut. We are a beautiful state, and we are very proud of our history, even as we look toward our future.  It’s time we did a better job of telling that story," Malloy said.

The tourism campaign is a $27 million effort that will span two years. It will include TV, radio, print and digital advertising as well as a new logo.

What do you think? Great slogan, or a dud? Take our poll and add your thoughts (and your slogan ideas) in the comments.

Connecticut, bad slogans just another way to burn taxpayer money... See and it didn't even cost the state a cent.

Connecticut - the nanny state, come here so we can tell you how to live your life. Our Founding Fathers are turning over in their graves. Unless you want to gamble or watch the birds, this state is a joke. But let's spend more money for useless tourism campaign. Think we'll ever see an analysis on how much additional tourism revenue flowed into the state because of this campaign?
