Ganim: Lamont-SuBy Ticket Changes Nothing, ‘We Have Support To Be On Primary Ballot’

May 15th, 2018 · 14 Comments · News and Events, State Politics

Statement from Mayor Joe Ganim:

“Today’s announcement of a Lamont-Bysiewicz ticket changes nothing regarding our campaign. With almost 8,500 signatures of voters in hand, it is clear we have the support of the people to be on the August Democratic primary ballot to fight for economic, political and social justice.

The people of Connecticut want change, not more of the same.

Our diverse and inclusive grassroots campaign has never been about top-down endorsements by party insiders or having the most money, but it has been about the passionate support of tens of thousands of Connecticut citizens who want a new Connecticut economy that works for everyone, not just a few. It’s about fighting for working and middle class families who are struggling to keep their heads above water.

Having been honored by the people of Bridgeport with a second chance, it’s about making sure every Connecticut resident has at least a first chance to succeed. Democratic voters deserve a real choice this August, and we will give it to them.”

    Is it possible that this is a “pivot point” for Joe Ganim? You know, a place where he can put his foot down about a fight for economic, political and social justice for the people of Bridgeport. Maybe he can return to the “second chance” given him by the voters of Bridgeport with our economic, political and social justice issues and inform us that he is all in to finish the work of his four year term, in Bridgeport and for Bridgeport? Time will tell.

    Did Joe Ganim wake up to Russell H Conwell’s talk delivered thousands of times called ACRES OF DIAMONDS and decide that the fortune he seeks can be found in his own yard? Time will tell.

    He just can’t face the facts and see that he doesn’t have a chance in hell..Joe was so concerned about “working and middle class people keeping thier head above water”,that he stole everything he could from us 15 years ago,and this time around,most recently, he was trying to give raises to his “loyal supporters” till he was caught,meanwhile teachers have to buy their students paper and pencils cause the city can’t fund them properly.

    Ganim wil spit the pit at the convention.
    Mario will nominate Joe, Then Joe will second his own nomination, just to get his hands on the mic, at that point their should be a crescendo of Lock him up! Lock him up! Coming from the Covention floor.

  • Maria Pereira

    Joe Ganim is personally calling people and asking them to help circulate petitions. He is also calling people pleading with them to host fundraisers for him.

    I sense he has hit a wall with fundraising. I don’t buy for a minute that he went from 2,000 signatures his first week to 8,500 one week later.

    I hope he is spending lots of money on his petition drive.
