Windsor Properties to be Sold at Tax Sale on April 22
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.

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!!”
Happy First Day of SPRING!
#WinterStormEugene has left a mess that is still in our yards from last week but it is officially SPRING according to weathermen across the country…
Today in CT there’s still a heaping amount of snow in our yards but it is officially the first day of spring! March doesn’t know which way it wants to go, having some warmer days earlier and then slamming us with #BlizzardEugene… but now at least the sun is shining and the calendar says that it’s SPRING
Check around to see which of the local ice cream shops around you are offering a Free Small One Scoop Ice Cream. To celebrate spring there are a couple that are offering a Free Small Cone or a Buy One Get On Special.
Will you and the children be going out to enjoy the beautiful day and go out to find the Free Ice Cream in your location? Let everyone know which places are offering Free or BOGO Ice Cream in your area by leaving a comment below.
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?
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
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…
#BeggingForBailOut tour stopped in Rocky Hill CT on Monday Dec 12th 2016
It was almost a full house after all, the video camera view that I initially saw showed a bunch of empty seats but another video showed that the room was mostly full & some people were standing together in the back of the room talking among themselves…
I watched a live stream of the meeting while it was happening in Rocky Hill
The link above goes to the Fox61 article – For some reason I’m unable to get the video player to post properly so I’ve posted the video over on the other blog & it seems to post properly over there
