Paging Sasha, Yadira, Jeronimo And Major–Do You Want To Serve On The School Board?

October 25th, 2014 · 6 Comments · Analysis and Comment, Education

Sasha Duran, Yadira Antunez, Jeronimo Ortiz and Major McCargo. According to local elections officials, they represent the lone city residents registered with Connecticut’s Working Families Party. And it’s possible, even if highly unlikely, one of them could be considered to replace John Bagley on the Board of Education. Does anyone know them?

Hearst Connecticut Newspapers Endorse Malloy

October 25th, 2014 · 17 Comments · News and Events, State Politics

From Hearst Connecticut Newspapers that include the Connecticut Post, Danbury News-Times, Greenwich Time and Stamford Advocate.

When you ask Malloy a question, he will give you an answer. You may not like his answer and you may not agree with it, On the other hand, second-time Republican candidate Tom Foley’s response to specific questions are often vague, defensive and, essentially, variations on “Trust me. I’m a problem solver.” Business experience is good, but government is not a business. Whether it’s a Greenwich, Bridgeport, Hartford or Washington, the purpose of government is to do for us what we can’t do individually.

Car Makes Early Halloween Visit To Cemetery

October 25th, 2014 · No Comments · Cops, News and Events

From Doing It Local:

A car traveling at a high rate of speed on Helen Street, cut across two lanes of traffic while leaving his fender and other car body parts on the green, then crossed two more lanes remarkably not hitting any other cars. He then hit Lakeview Cemetery’s fence, went airborne sailing over the first rows of tombstones, hitting the second row of tombstones, before hitting the payment of the drive taking up a couple inches of pavement. The car continued for another fifty feet before hitting more tombstones and coming to a stop.

City Vote Key For Malloy Second Term

October 24th, 2014 · 36 Comments · Analysis and Comment, City Politics, News and Events, State Politics

In the closing days of a campaign you seek every advantage you can get. President Obama is scheduled to visit Bridgeport two days before the November 4 general election, in a reprise of 2010 at a location to be named, and wife Michelle will make a stop in New Haven next week for maybe a slice of pizza paradise, all on behalf of courting votes for Governor Dan Malloy in critical urban areas. Bridgeport has some pretty good pie too. And if you need a little topping on San Marzano tomatoes how about a few absentee ballots to touch the political pleasure center of vote banking? Mangia!

Courant Endorses Malloy

October 24th, 2014 · 9 Comments · News and Events, State Politics

 From the Hartford Courant:

Mr. Malloy, 59, is something Connecticut hasn’t seen in a while, a hands-on manager who took on the serious problems facing the state. He bit off a lot, perhaps too much. He made mistakes (as all politicians do). His sharp-elbow combativeness didn’t always serve him well. But he was a leader who made enough progress on enough fronts to merit re-election. The Courant endorses him for a second term over Republican Tom Foley, 62, who narrowly lost to Mr. Malloy in 2010.
