No Changes In Recounts For Democratic Town Committee Seats

March 11th, 2014 · 6 Comments · Analysis and Comment, City Politics, News and Events

UPDATE: Includes town committee list. Monday’s recount in two districts did not change the results from last Tuesday’s Democratic Town Committee primaries, according to elections officials. Candidates who placed among the top nine were elected to the 90-member committee. See results from last week here.

Recounts took place in the 135th and 138th Districts. The town committee members will meet Thursday night to elect a chairman. Mario Testa is expected to receive the nod for another two-year term. Seven of 10 districts had primaries last week. Full Democratic Town Committee list by district:

    Hail to the winners! You have a responsibility for nominating people with talent, leadership qualities and integrity to deal with the many issues facing our city and the region.

    Thanks to those who ran and lost (this time), there are lessons to be sought and reflected upon. There are many watchdog opportunities to seek out, to monitor and to report upon. Grand list anomalies, budget preparation, economic development activities, timetables for projects underway are among these.

    The importance of absentee ballots in most of these races is evident. Who is voting absentee and why? (I did so once because I was going to be out of town.) Are these homeowners who pay taxes on a residence? Tenants who pay car taxes? Or are a number of them seniors who have had better days but who have no property tax liability these days and see the City as provider of services without personal expense to them? What compelling story helps these voters separate one candidate from another? Do all candidates gain access to the frequent absentee user or are some precluded from approaching certain “residences” in Bridgeport? What do you see? Time will tell.

    Well John, I have an interesting story about senior centers and their accessibility. Here in the 138th where a lot of absentee ballots came out of the Bishop Curtis house at the foot of Palisade Ave, we tried to get access to hold a coffee hour but we do know the opposition was allowed in.
    My feeling is many of the seniors who fill out these absentee ballots do so illegally. Have you ever seen the parking lots and garages at these senior enters, they are full of tenant cars thus showing a good portion of them are in fact mobile.
    Maybe what we should do is take over the police and fire department command vehicles and turn them into mobile voting booths. Take these vehicles to senior centers and allow the seniors to vote early. If there are incapacitated people involved have a voter registration person fill out their absentee ballots. The only people who should be using absentee ballots are the military and away college students and people who are physically challenged, they can have their caregiver call in requesting a ballot. This absentee ballot usage needs to be stopped. I would be willing to bet if the ABs were checked, the majority of people using them really don’t qualify to use them. Yes, I am a senior citizen.

      Andrew C Fardy, back in Sept. 2013 primary I had just gotten home from my first knee replacement surgery and I got a call from former City Council person Mary Bruce who asked me if I was going to vote and did I need a ride. I told her I needed a ride but I was using a walker to walk and I was always in a lot of pain. Well, the good news was for that election there was curbside voting, the driver pulled up to a certain area and someone came out and checked all of my ID and then I was give a ballot to vote. The City did not have curbside voting in Nov. 2013 and although I did vote and called for a ride it was very hard for me to walk inside the school to wait and then vote, but I did. Curbside voting could be one way to get those who might be absentee voters to vote.

    Off topic:
    A complaint was filed by me about the abuse at the 138th THS polling site. The two-page letter was sent to Brandi Exec Director Elections Enforcement Comm. Denise Merrill Sec of State and George Jepsen Attorney General.
    Well I got a call today from the Attorney General and Enforcement Unit for further information which was forwarded to them per their request.

    Pat–thanks for the update.

    Lennie–kudos to you and this site. If we waited for the Post to report this … we’d still be waiting.

    Ron–thanks for that info. My mother is getting older and it’s getting tougher for her to get out and vote. Do you know of any plans to bring the curbside voting back?

    Last item–see this story–the final online version is different. But here is the earlier version.

    To all the WFP supporters, replace Maria’s name with Moales and let me know if you would have been upset by this.
