You may have heard about the Special Elections that will be occurring on Feb 28th in the 2nd State Senate & 32nd State Senate districts due to 2 state senators quitting rather than taking office after the November 8th 2016 elections…
This will be an interesting election to watch because…
The 32nd District will have 3 candidates on the ballot with Dan Lynch an UnAffiliated Candidate being given ballot access after getting the required number of signatures to gain access to the ballot.
Dan will be able to apply for the CEP funding if he is able to raise the funds & number of in district donations required, so that is the goal he is working towards now.
If you live in the 32nd you will have a very tough choice to make because I met both Eric Berthel & Dan Lynch & both are fine men.
I’ve not met the democrat but the mere fact that he’s with the democrat party I could never consider him for office so neither should you
Sadly I will not be on the ballot for the Special Election in the 2nd state senate district…
I have heard rumor but haven’t seen confirmation yet but there may also be a 3 way race with Atty Aaron Romano on the Working Families Party ballot line since he did not get the Republican nomination after switching parties? He announced he had $8,000 raised when he presented at the Windsor RTC meeting prior to the convention on Jan 19th.
Mike McDonald will be on the Republican line and State Rep Doug McCrorey on the Democrat line… Both men are expected to be receiving the CEP Funding Grant for their campaigns once the SEEC finishes with their submitted paperwork.
I will post an update once I get confirmation with links as to who is officially on the ballot in the 2nd senate race.
Normally in Special Elections the Republicans pick up the seats because the democrats do not show up to vote as much during the off election voting sessions…
Have you gone out to vote yet?
The polls opened at 6am so they’ve been opened for a while you still have some time but PLEASE make a serious effort to get out & VOTE!
If you have already voted GREAT now call a friend & those members in your household that are registered to vote to remind them to go out & VOTE too!
#VoteRowB to end the #TaxingTyranny !
What a difference a year makes…
Last year in Jan – Feb 2015 we were hit with more snow than we wanted.
Our CT Tradition of naming winter storms had us all the way up to the letter F.
This year so far in 2016 we only have had 1 named winter storm. For the most part not much snow or even traffic problems for CT because #WinterStormAnna came on a weekend. While those who love to ski are complaining about the lack of snow, personally I do not mind because I don’t care for cold weather. I enjoy Spring, Summer & Fall for their colors & warm sunny days.
Outside of CT the nation was using the name that the weather channel had given her & they called Winter Storm Anna the next name on their storm list which was Jonas.
Anna/Jonas put a hurting on the southern states & then just a slap on the rump for CT. Yes after a snow filled winter of 2015 I’m enjoying this year which has been mostly rain.
With all of the extra taxes that Malloy & his henchmen at the capitol who locked the republicans out of the budget room have heaped upon us, saving on heating oil due to the warmer winter this season helps out the home budget.

Today is the Day to Get Out The VOTE!
Polls opened up at 6am & will be opened until 8pm
(barring any funny business at the polling stations which seems to be happening a lot the past few years in our cities)
Have you already gone to Vote before going to work?
Call Friends & Family & Remind them to #GOTV
Can you take a Co-Worker to go vote during your lunch break?
Can you get out early to assist with getting friends & family & neighbors to the voting booths?
Call the candidate that you are supporting & ask if there is some assistance that you can offer, many times there are polling stations that could use a sign waver outside for an hour or two.
Did you remind the people in your social networks?
If we are going to turn around our state we must begin with our cities & towns.
Those who are fighting common core have been made fun of the parents fighting common core & the administrations in most states have gone on the attack to try to drown out the voices of those concerned & knowledgeable enough to stand up & say “NO This is Very Bad for our children & we do not want it”
With each passing year the schools make excuses after excuses for why the students are doing poorly…
Then they demand more money because they think that if the test scores are bad then of course they must spend more money on the worst educational system that was developed…
#ParentsRights are being denied as many school officials try to hide the curriculum & lessons & tests from the parents. Teachers & Administrators have gone against what are in the best interest of the children in their push to add more highly paid staff with titles to do worthless studies…
Our children are worth more than the crazy experiments which these testing corporations are doing. We can not afford for our children’s lives to be ruined by these people.
#StopCommonCoreInCT end the moneypit waste that we have going on in every town in CT.
Learn All that you can about this program & then get down to the town halls & demand for the removal of this mess from our state & towns! #TakeBackOurSchools

Reminder Get Out & Vote NO on the Budget Tomorrow
Polls Open at 6am & Close at 8pm
#YourVoteIsYourVoice – #VoteNo
#SayNoNewTaxes – there is a lot of questionable BoE items needing transparency & the democrats in charge of the BoE aren’t being forthcoming about all the numbers nor looking for cost saving measures that can be options for our citizens – the BoE budget is 2/3rds of the town’s total budget & it needs to be better managed, we’ve had too much vagueness in their numbers & animosity by the BoE leadership when being questioned about how they plan to spend our families money
#SaveWindsorPuppies – Save our Windsor Animal Control Shelter the democrats are forcing our current “dog pound” to be destroyed by their corporate friends who they have given the tax breaks to build luxury mixed use apartments (think like Hartford office & stores downstairs & apartments on top commercial buildings) so the rich get rid of our puppies who have gotten lost & found by our animal control officers & now instead of building a new shelter the democrats who obviously do not like dogs are trying to send our Windsor Puppies out of town to possibly kill shelters #DemocratsHatePuppies
#SaveTeamParagon – our 18 year olds need to vote to save their classmates Robotics Program which the democrats will displace when they try to take over the old Roger Wolcott school which was closed due to students leaving the district – our teens deserve to have the Robotics Team in a space where they can continue to grow in learning as well as experiencing successes as they compete #DemocratsHateRobots
If you are RICH you’ll have no problem going along with the democrat bullies who have been steadily increasing our taxes every year but if you are part of the lower income brackets that are struggling under the weight of the excesses & wasteful spending that the democrats who are running Windsor are jamming down our throats then #VoteNo
Windsor Voters it is time once again to get your paper & pencil & sit down & figure out how much more this year your family can afford to spend paying for the high & inflated budget which has been put in front of us to pay with another tax increase on our property taxes…
Keep in mind that our state officials are also planning to increase our income taxes & adding taxes on items not previously taxed, in addition to raising the taxes on items we’ve got to pay for our gas, cigarettes, & wine
Many do not have the ability to attend the town hall meetings on a regular basis due to family & work obligations, but were you aware that even if you do not get cable tv into your home you can watch many of our town hall meetings online?
