Ganim And Foster News 12 Debate

Public trust, education, crime, taxes, development–Joe Ganim and Mary-Jane Foster on Wednesday debated a number of issues with a primary target Mayor Bill Finch who did not participate in the forum hosted by Tom Appleby of News 12 Connecticut. Check out the debate here starting at 1:15 mark.



  1. Interesting fact: Danny Roach and Adam “Pecker” Wood, campaign managers for, respectively, Joe Ganim and Bill Finch, do not have lawn signs on their property. One would think both of them would be hawking their respective contenders but nooooooooo. They’ve been seen in deep discussion with each other. Both candidates are supported, “officially” or “unofficially” by different factions of the DTC. Could it be we are being played by Mario Testa? He’s the one with the most to lose if another candidate wins the general election.

  2. Finch throws in the towel!

    Once you say you’re going to settle for second, that’s what happens to you in life.–John F. Kennedy

    A child miseducated is a child lost.–John F. Kennedy

    The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.–John F. Kennedy

    Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.–John F. Kennedy

    I don’t think the intelligence reports are all that hot. Some days I get more out of the New York Times.–John F. Kennedy


  3. It’s easy to see why Mayor Finch didn’t show up for this debate because the voters would have seen how bad a mayor Bill Finch is, they would have heard him lie and lie and he would have been challenged to explain why he underfunded children’s education, he would have to explain why the police dept is 100 police officers short and many other questions.
