Since They Built It will the Public Come?

Well opening day is almost here… just hours away and counting down…

and THIS Year Dunkin Stadium; home of the Hartford Yard Goats, will actually open on it’s scheduled date and time!

Something which it failed to do last year due to all the many building and legal troubles plaguing the; shady done in back rooms to cheat out on the city of New Britain, town council deal from 2013/14…

Not personally a fan of baseball to start with, I was against the building of the stadium using taxpayer monies from the get go… as a taxpaying homeowner like many others I resent that due to the many legal troubles that the city of Hartford over the mismanagement of city funds that we in the suburbs are being forced to pay for this project which doesn’t really do much to benefit current residents of the north end of Hartford who lost a supermarket deal with the stadium going in.

With all of the legal stuff going on, the stadium which had problems with work stopping and starting and then off again with new people needing to be brought in to finish up, I do hope that eventually the citizens of the north end of Hartford will be able to benefit.

We can all hope that the stadium will do well, but no matter how pretty it might be (if you can call the building pretty) the questions are…

“Will the Public Come as Paying Ticket Holders?”

“Will people bring their families to the edge of the north end of Hartford which has a reputation for drugs and gags and shootings?”

After all the money that has been wasted on this project I do hope that the team stays in town and some how against the odds the stadium can turn an actual profit…

But the democrats in power seem to have a knack for making businesses and jobs leave the state after giving them millions of taxpayer dollars and tax breaks so I’m not holding out my breath on this turning out to be profitable…

So let’s see if this year at least if they can get and keep the stadium filled with baseball fans cheering

“Let’s Go Yard Goats!!! Chomp Chomp Chomp!!”

 

Trump Affect in CT

Well the elections are over & Donald Trump has won the popular vote. The electoral college will make in official in Dec.  The inauguration balls will begin on January 20th 2017 after he is sworn in. Word on the internet is that there will be protests planned for that day )0;}

There are people who are planning “DeploraBalls” across the nation since most of us can’t make it down to DC to attend any of the official fancy balls to celebrate. Haven’t heard of any Balls in CT yet but I’m wondering if they will plan one? Would you attend a “DeploraBall” event if one was held in CT?

CT is in a bit of a shock as 2 worlds are colliding – CT Democrats & the liberal followers are crying, angry & in shock at the loss of seats in the general assembly; meanwhile CT GOP is celebrating the wins in the state & that the White House is now safely in the hands of the Republican Party.

 This year in spite of the cheating & lying by the CT Democrats the voters in CT were able to make some wins in the general assembly to start turning the state back onto the road to prosperity once more. Your Votes Counted! In fact so much that there were at least 2 races that went to automatic recounts.button Your Vote Counts round RWB-Stars

While Trump was unable to win in CT with it’s big pockets of #NeverTrumpers that turned former towns from 2012 Red to Blue in 2016, there were several towns that flipped this year from 2012 Blue to Red in 2016.

The towns flipping from Blue to RED blindsided the democrats who are used to ruling over CT as if they are kings & queens over peasants.  There hasn’t been equality in the state senate since the 1800s is what I’ve heard?

The Democrat Activist groups are already meeting & working to take back the state ground they lost & have stated that they plan to keep the anger – a picture of the NoWCT chapter posted 3 days after the election.

June 7th Windsor town budget Vote

Windsor Property Owners Get Out & VOTE on the Property Taxes June 7th

In Windsor, the method we use to determine our town budget is an open process. Every citizen who is registered to vote – property owners and those who rent – is welcome to participate in determining the town budget.

This is where your involvement is really important because your vote really does count. What you think makes a difference, right here in your home town.

Please take the time to vote on your town’s budget.

A YES Vote Increases the amount of your property (home, car & business) taxes

A No Vote tells the Council & School Board members to reduce their budgets to reduce or keep the same tax amount that we had after last years tax increases

TAX on back of bent over manwant vs need man balancing

The following Community Budget Forums were sponsored by Windsor CT Votes and the Windsor League of Women Voters. Town Manager Peter Souza and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Craig Cooke each promoted their reasons for increasing the budget & increasing the property taxes on our homes, cars & businesses at those meetings; some of which were video taped.

Those meetings which were taped are available to watch online or order the dvd via Win-TV

NC Enters Year 4 of Common Core and Reading Retention for 3rd Graders Increases Statewide

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
