Why are there UnContested Races in CT?

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  http://www.courant.com/opinion/op-ed/hc-ed-too-many-ct-seats-uncontested-0721-20160720-story.html

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 ?
