Statement from Kate Rivera:
We WON at the polls. The people of the 130th district chose me to represent them in Hartford. Thank you Bridgeport for your support and faith in me and our grassroots movement and to the absolute hardest working campaign team. The Bridgeport Democratic Machine has highlighted the corruption it perpetrates on Bridgeport by silencing the voice of the people through an implausible number of absentee ballots. When the number of absentee ballots for a candidate is more than the number of voters who showed up at the polls in real life for the same candidate it should immediately trigger an investigation. I asked the Registrar of Voters to do supervised absentee balloting last week at 10 identified locations and she refused. Are we going to continue to allow this blatant disrespect for our City & democracy? Asking for thousands of my friends.
