    Off top, I think this cash strapped state should not punish people for following the law by installing electronic tollbooths to generate revenue. Instead they should install electronic speeding booths along 95 and other CT’s highways. This will have multiple positive effects for the State. 1) It well generate revenue from those breaking our law, so it’s not a tollbooth tax on people obeying our laws. 2) It will force drivers to drive the speed limit, even a minor accident on our highways cause a travel nightmare for people. 3) It will make our highway travel more smoothly.

    Get on this State. Hey Joe that’s should be you Governor promise, to may our highway better traveling arteries of the people of Connecticut while generating revenue.

    PS. If the technology permit ticket distracted drives using their phones.

      What in the fucking hell does that have to do with the Board of Education?!

    • Joel Gonzalez

      Screw your idea Robert Teixeira. Did you stop to think how this will affect Speedy Gonzalez? For one, I’d have to go back to running through the woods to avoid smokey, tolls, and light cameras. Joe Ganim is the last person one should encourage to use electronic technology to generate revenue from car vehicle owners.

      LENNIEEEE. I found another RAT. Where’s the ghost of Stinky when you need him?

      “FaithActs for Education is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Bridgeport, CT that does not endorse any candidate or party. The goal of this event is to educate Bridgeport voters, and not to influence the outcome of any election.”

      RAAAAAT! Before this statement from FaithActs, is this:

      Grab a voter guide (available at VoteBridgeport.com)

      When you click on the link, you arrive allot closer to the truth as to FaithActs’ motive. The first thing you will notice is the four Big Red squares the one on the far right is for “Rides.”

      I wondered, rides to where? It can’t be to the polls because,”The goal of this event is to educate Bridgeport voters, and not to influence the outcome of any election.”
      We political animals know what takes place during ride to the polls operations and there are plenty of news stories about this part of the get out the vote (GOTV) operation.

      Text 203-583-8573 / Call 203-868-0443 – Voting commitments, rides to the polls

      If you need a FAST ride to the polls, request that Speedy Gonzalez be the driver.

  • Robert Teixeira

    A. That is why I said off topic. (top #ELS)
    B. It’s about the cash strapped State that funds the education. So in that regard it has everything to do with BOE
    C. This is why nobody cares about your views. Most of the time they’re invalid and unproductive.

  • Joel Gonzalez

    Robert Teixeira, the Kid doesn’t know his A, B, C…

    • Robert Teixeira

      Do you?
      A) They are not just car owners. They’re law breading.
      B) Tell Speedy Gonzalez to stop speeding.
      C) Dan Malloy is the last person I should encourage about my ideas because he’s not running for Governor, Joe’s running for Governor.,

    • The Bridgeport Kid

      Don’t bother, Joel. Robert drinks the same flavor of Kool Aid as Steven Auerbach.

  • Maria Pereira

    Shavonne Davis is not attending. She is educated on this charlatan organization. And no, it wasn’t by me.

    Shavonne did her homework. Go girl!!!

    • Joel Gonzalez

      Maria Pereira, I not only did the work, I educated the OIB readers and voters. Isn’t it nice when I use peoples own words and writing against them? Wink.

    • The Bridgeport Kid

      FaithActs must not be endorsing you, Maria…

      • Joel Gonzalez

        They may not be endorsing Maria? They state that they don’t endorse candidates at all. One thing is for sure, this press release/OIB commentary is solely intended to ‘take people for a ride’, literally. It’s not only intended to take people to the polls with a free ride. But take people for a ride as in LYING, FOOLING, and TAKING PEOPLE FOR SUCKERS.

        • Ron Mackey

          Joel, really, is that the best you can do?

          • Joel Gonzalez

            Be more specific with your question. Do I really need to by any clearer? I didn’t have to do much but, to point out the huge contradiction in this commentary sent by FaithActs. Have faith on the facts I’m pointing out here. Lennie Grimaldi needs to call these people and give us an explanation if anything.

        • The Bridgeport Kid

          Shavonne Davis will not be attending because highway tolls will not be on the agenda.

  • Donald Day

    Joel, if I’m not mistaken FaithActs are charter school advocates so that ride would depend on what side of the street that you walk on with respect to this issue.

    • The Bridgeport Kid

      Donald Day on point!

    • Joel Gonzalez

      Yes, Donald Day. But, to bullshit people or piss on their legs and tell them it’s raining? Anyone who says, writes, or maintains that they don’t endorse or support certain candidates and holds public meetings or forums to learn where the candidates stand on issues like the ones important to FaithActs, should immediately raise suspicion. Notice that there are candidates who did not confirm their attendance. Faithfacts, will make sure that as many people know who those candidates are to immediately discredit them or imply that they don’t care what the people in the forum thinks or want to know. What they are doing is political activity, they are fundraising, sponsoring forums, taking people to the pols, getting people to make commitments to vote, etc. Did or do they have a registered PAC with the State/SEEC? I will bet they don’t. Trump signed an executive order allowing this practice by non profits. They still must report political activities and register with SEEC.

  • LennieGrimaldi

    This comments thread is why I love OIB!

    • Joel Gonzalez

      If you love OIB, you shouldn’t let anyone try to bullshit us and get away with it. Contact them and raise the point/s I’ve raise.

  • Ron Mackey

    When did Shavonne Davis say that’s she will not be attending?
