Three weeks left to the presidential election. What race has your attention? The charter question to decide an appointed or elected school board? Is Democratic Congressman Jim Himes poised to win a third term? Linda McMahon versus Chris Murphy U.S. Senate war? Speaking of that, what’s the deal with all the McMahon lawn signs in the city?
OIB is inundated with news releases and statements from the various camps. We try to accommodate. Since we haven’t heard in a while from Bridgeport Republican Town Chair John Slater we’ll give him the floor defending the honor of Linda McMahon, the wrestling executive whose campaign operation is trying to pick off every vote possible in the city, a departure from recent Republicans for federal office who ignored city voters. Slater statement:
Bill Finch, The Mayor of Bridgeport, recently stated that Bridgeport will deliver the votes for Chris Murphy and not Linda McMahon even if “it’s a couple days late.” What a shame. The Mayor and his party have disrespected the taxpayers and voters in the City of Bridgeport time and time again. They believe you are stupid and incapable of thinking for yourself.
My name is John Slater and I am the Chairman of The Bridgeport Republican Town Committee. I believe that you, the taxpayer and voter in the City of Bridgeport, are our City’s greatest asset. I challenge all of you to go against the grain and vote for Linda McMahon.
I have personally supported Linda throughout each of her two campaigns for the United States Senate. I have been around her and gotten to personally know her and have developed FAITH that she is absolutely the right person to represent Connecticut. Linda is a JOB CREATOR and employs over 600 people right here in the State of Connecticut. Her opponent, who I would find personal enjoyment in his loss of the City of Bridgeport, is a slouch. He doesn’t know how to control and manage his own finances, he has proven through his legislation that he doesn’t have the mental understanding of how our economy works, and HE IS A LIAR.
I was honored to attend the “Bridgeport Sky Blast” at Seaside Park during the summer with Linda and her campaign. I was happy to see so many Bridgeport residents excited to meet Linda and pledge their support. But here is where I become confused. Bill Finch was one of them. He was more than happy to introduce his son to Linda since he is a big fan of her product. Mayor Finch became giddy at the fact that he was able to pose for a photo and obtain an autograph from Linda. At that moment, Bill was just as big of a fan of Linda as I am.
On November 6th, let’s shock the world… Deliver your vote for Linda McMahon.
