Protein Sciences cancels expansion plans after governor gets flu shot from foreign competitor

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy

Connecticut-based flu vaccine maker Protein Sciences has cancelled its expansion plans after learning the governor got his flu shot from a foreign competitor. The Meriden, CT-based company nixed negotiations to buy two local properties after hearing of Gov. Dannel Malloy's faux pas. Dan Adams, the company's executive chairman, told The Record-Journal the company was stung by the way "the governor blew us off like that." The newspaper said state officials are now scrambling to make amends with the drugmaker. Story
