Who’ll Be Connecticut’s Next Governor?

This is it. Now it’s all about mobilization. One of two businessmen, Democrat Ned Lamont and Republican Bob Stefanowski will emerge as Connecticut’s next governor replacing Dan Malloy who eschewed reelection after two terms with one of the lowest gubernatorial approval ratings in the country.

An aggregate of polls shows Lamont with a slight lead so depending on motivating forces Tuesday’s result could end up a few points either way.

The Nov. 6 ballot includes two questions pertaining to Connecticut’s Special Transportation Fund and the disposition of state property. For explanation of these questions see here.

Ballot questions:

Shall the Constitution of the State be amended to ensure (1) that all moneys contained in the Special Transportation Fund be used solely for transportation purposes, including the payment of debts of the state incurred for transportation purposes, and (2) that sources of funds deposited in the Special Transportation Fund be deposited in said fund so long as such sources are authorized by statute to be collected or received by the state?

Shall the Constitution of the State be amended to require (1) a public hearing and the enactment of legislation limited in subject matter to the transfer, sale or disposition of state-owned or state-controlled real property or interests in real property in order for the General Assembly to require a state agency to sell, transfer or dispose of any real property or interest in real property that is under the custody or control of the agency, and (2) if such property is under the custody or control of the Department of Agriculture or the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, that such enactment of legislation be passed by a two-thirds vote of the total membership of each house of the General Assembly?

  1. Stefanowski is calling for voting monitors in certain polling places. I did not see which ones but you can be sure the are in the urban areas.
    Can you say “voter suppression?” Can you say “voter intimidation?”
    Just another page out of the TRUMP Playbook.
