Has your phone been ringing off the hook this week?
Has your door been visited by young strangers with clipboards & cards?
Has your mailbox been overflowing with oversized postcards these past few days?
Well then you must live in one of the districts that is having a SPECIAL ELECTION on this coming Tuesday Feb 28th 2017!!!
This Special Election cycle there are 3 candidates that will be on the ballot for state senate in both of the districts having them (former senator Kane’s district is the 32nd and former senator Coleman’s district is the 2nd) – which for the republican candidate in the 2nd district actually increases his chances of winning the race since the third candidate is seriously splitting the democrat party vote.
If you go by the number of yard signs in Windsor; the race is between Mike McDonald who has the hometown advantage born & raised in Windsor and Aaron Romano from Bloomfield, on the major roads in Windsor.
I’ve not seen a single Doug McCrory yard sign yet in my travels last week and this prior to my car needing repairs which has sidelined me until early next week when it should be back from the mechanic’s
It looks like Doug is taking from Hillary’s playbook & making the assumption that he is the democrat in a “safe” democrat district so therefore the CEP Grant money can be used for partying rather than actually in investing in a website, Facebook ads or paying for phone callers & polls? What is Doug doing with his $70k+ CEP funding grant money, is 2 postcards all that is going to be shown for the Taxpayers Money for the Special Election?
Mike McDonald has invested his $70k+ CEP Grant money wisely. Mike started fast putting up a website, he’s gotten a HQ in Windsor and is getting yard signs out into people’s yards. Mike has invested in LIVE phone callers & a polling service. Mike has had door knockers going out with him which are rewarded with a meal for their volunteering service. He’s putting his CEP Grant money visibly to work in addition to the postcards sent and personally knocking on doors in Windsor. Mike did get an on air interview over at CT Talking with Brad and Dan.
Even Aaron Romano has been using his funds wisely for getting out the message with 2 versions of his signs according to the Facebook page that he has. At least 2 phone calls have come into the house while we’ve been home with live people on the other end to answer questions. Aaron is going out into the community in Hartford and has been on the local radio stations a few times.
So these are small things which you might want to consider as we head into the Special Election on Tuesday.
How are each of the candidates treating the Taxpayer Monies given to them via the CEP Grant to reach the public?
Have you had the opportunity to talk to the candidates or ask questions of their staff and volunteers?
or have you only gotten a postcard for all of your tax dollars put into the CEP fund?
