Why were there UnContested Races in CT in 2016?

I originally wrote this post in 2016 but have you noticed any changes to speak of in CT Politics?

Have the RTCs dedicated themselves towards actually doing some things differently? 

Maybe even starting with the leadership of those RTCs; is there stagnation or a general malaise due to needing to update the local party with new ideas?

Have the campaigns started working TOGETHER instead of only working with "the sure winner" as an attempt to grow the party in CT like is being done in other parts of the country?

Below is what I originally wrote in 2016... are things improving as we look ahead to next week and next year?

It is true there are too many UnContested Races in CT's General Assembly this year & in years past & if things do not change this will be the future as well...

The July 21st article in the Hartford Courant

points out that "due to apathy" & "lack of leadership" seats are going uncontested during a year when there should be not only full ballots but also high voter turnout since it is a presidential election year

Copied & pasted from the article 
"What a shame, then, that more than 25 percent of the House seats will go unchallenged by a major-party candidate, along with four seats in the Senate."

& also this from the article
16 Democrats will run unopposed by a Republican, nearly all of them incumbents, according to preliminary information from the secretary of the state's office. "

Shame on the local party leadership for not running full tickets; 
but also shame on the cities & towns people that have not stepped up to run for office.

"We the People" means that each citizen has a responsibility to take some small part in running the country;
That means not just showing up once every couple of years to vote a party line without knowing what the issues are but attending town & even state level meetings at the town halls & state capitol.

What are You going to do to change the "defeatist" attitude that is running rampant in our state?

What are You going to do to help #FlipTheGeneralAssembly ?

Be Safe this Halloween 2017

Enjoy this short little video I made last year

Be Safe while you go out to Trick or Treat
& have your Halloween Fun - 

Remember to: 
Wear light colors & bring flashlights so you can see & be seen 
Walk on the sidewalks not in the streets
Try to go out in groups together

Never Go Inside the House of a stranger

Wait to eat the treats until you get home & are able to check the wrappers for tampering in the full light - sadly there are people out there who have tampered with the candy in years past

Bernie Sanders - Halloween 2015

Halloween Silliness 

This is from back in 2015 but it's still funny... 
Especially since we avoided the real nightmare... 
that we could have had...
 Bernie as our actual president

State Senator Michael McLachlan Override the Veto Danbury Press Conferen...

State Senator Michael McLachlan is 
fighting hard to save money for our families 
and working hard to #FixCT

The general assembly caucuses are currently working on a new budget 

but from what is leaking out it still sounds like the original Balanced Budget that was passed and then vetoed by the governor is much better for all.
