25° Tonight in New Orleans

We need more men & women to step up to the plate rather than putting it all on government while turning a blind eye to our homeless neighbors that need a way to get out of the bitter cold

25° TONIGHT!

Getting the homeless indoors may be a literal matter of life or death when it gets this cold in a tropical climate like ours.

My Overnight Shelter is one option: open
11pm-sunrise tonight inside the front lobby of the New Orleans Healing Center at 2372 St. Claude Ave.

When it gets this cold; with possible snow and sleet, only the hardest hearts ignore the threat before us.

We have had individuals die during freezing weather; either found outside or after a fire in a vacant building. Is it too much to ask that we avoid this outcome tonight?

#CapBlackRLSH on-site all nite.

Pearl Harbor Day Dec 7th

Today is Pearl Harbor Day, the day when the USA was attacked at th Pearl Harbor Naval Base in Hawaii.

This was the event that brought the United States into the battles of WW2. 

Talk to your elders & if possible get them to talk on video camera about what they remember of the times during WW2 & afterwards & share the video on youtube.

Each year we lose more and more of our elders who actually lived through that time & our youth are not being taught about our history like we were.

Tomorrow is Election Day Nov 7th 2017

It has been a long campaign season and tomorrow it will end when the polls open at 6am until they close at 8pm and the votes are counted.

2morrow is election day remember vote

 

Met many people in Hartford, Bloomfield and Windsor as well as others from across Connecticut. I enjoy meeting people in the state whether they are in my district or in another persons district where I am helping.

Lot’s of discussions about harmful regulations and the oppressive taxes and what can or should be done to fix our state and our cities and our towns.

Tomorrow is The Day why so many people put in many hours of hard work and I thank each and every one of you that have worked to educate the people about the candidates that are running for office.

Tomorrow is Election Day 2017 and it is the day where we chose the direction of the country, the state and our cities and towns.

The choices are quite distinct to choose to go down the same path towards the destruction of our nation with old socialist / communist policies that have never worked; or we can chose to go in a new direction and turn towards policies and principles that will #MakeWindsorCTGreatAgain .#MakeCTGreatAgain and #MakeAmericaGreatAgain

We will choose to Vote for new Mayors and City-Town Councilors to represent us at the city halls and choosing the direction of our schools with the Board of Ed candidates.

I hope and pray that each of you WILL Get Out To VOTE Row B

Then when you get out in the parking lot that you call those in your household to remind them to get out to vote if they have not voted yet.

CT is in need of a change of direction, we need your help in making that change happen.

If you have a couple of hours to volunteer please give a call; we can use any and all assistance tomorrow.

We need people out on locations through out the state & we have things for people who are housebound to be able to assist as well.

The only way that we can have a #FreshNewStart is if we Vote Out Incumbents that are career politicians who are raising our taxes and wasting our money on special projects for their crony corporate friends…

To get out of this mess we need New People with New Ideas and who know what it is like to live under the oppressive rules and regulations.

#SharingIsCaring so please share this post on all of your social media networks

CT Tax Freedom Day Rally

Are you going to be there on Sunday the 21st for the CT Tax Freedom Rally?

CT Conservative

While April 24, 2017 is the National average date, of when Americans have finally earned enough to pay for their portion of Federal, State, and local taxes – CT is the last state to reach that marker…27 days later. It comes down to about 38% of our yearly income. The next closest state is NJ which is May 12th.

Granted, the Federal government has increased some of the taxes we pay, and has pushed our Tax Freedom Day back. Unfortunately for CT, over the past 6 yrs, CT residents and businesses have seen two $2 Billion tax increase budgets, courtesy of the Democrat Trifecta in CT, which moved us even further back. In 2010, the National TFD average was April 9th and CT was April 27th, a 16 day difference. At the time, it was about 32% of our yearly income.

This year, the Democrats, in the Legislature, are again looking…

Tax Sale Windsor April 22 2017

Windsor Properties to be Sold at Tax Sale on April 22

The Town of Windsor will conduct a tax sale on Saturday, April 22, 2017 in the Ludlow Room located on the lower level of town hall. Bidder registration will be at 8:00 AM and the sale will begin at 10:00 AM.Sixteen properties have been identified for the sale.  These properties have been delinquent on tax payments for three or more years or have more than $20,000 due in back taxes and have not made payment arrangements with the town.  The owners of the properties identified for sale have received a letter from the Town Attorney, and a final notice from the tax office.  They have either not responded, or have not paid enough on their account to date to be removed from the sale.

 

The property owners still have the opportunity to bring their accounts current up through April 21, 2017 to be removed from the actual sale.  If they do not, the property will go up for auction on April 22, 2017.  At that point, if the property sells at the auction, the owner will have a six month redemption period to reclaim their property.  To do so, they will need to reimburse the winning bidder the amount that was due to the Town of Windsor at the time of sale (minimum bid), in addition to 18% (1.5% per month) interest on the total winning bid.  The final day that they would be able to redeem the property will be October 23, 2017.

Phone Calls Doorknockers Postcards

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!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What’s in my mailbox this week? A Pile of Political Postcards Of Course!

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?

Get Out and VOTE on Tuesday Feb 28th 2017 at your local polling station if you live in the 2nd or 32nd State Senate Districts or the 115th State Rep District
