Special Elections State Rep Dist 7 & 68 #nq


Did you Vote Today?


Not much has been mentioned in the news for the 2 special elections...

District 7 & 68 for the state rep seats that were vacated when the state reps won their bids in Feb for State Senate, which now leaves 2 house seats to be filled tonight when the votes are counted... I've not yet heard the results but they are pending now the polls closed at 8pm

There was no republican candidate for the 7th district seat so the race is between a democrat & a far left Working Families Party union promoting new comer

If you live in the district I hope that you got out & VOTED for the democrat... the lesser of 2 evils in the race... unless of course you enjoy paying higher taxes to the unions

I can't comment on the race in the 68th district since I don't live in the area and haven't bothered to read about the candidates for that race because... 

I've been paying attention to the craziness going on with the state budget and how it affects the towns in their budgeting process... some towns are holding off their budget votes until after the session ends on June 7th

I did ask most of the town council members; including the mayor & deputy mayor and our town manager, if it would be possible to hold off on the initial budget vote until AFTER the June 7th general assembly session ending like some other towns were doing.

The general answer that I was given is "we'll have to look at that as a possibility" and a vote on that may come out on that this week on Wednesday night's meeting. The town charter only states that a budget vote has to happen prior to June 30th so there is enough time to be able to hold off on the first vote until after the session ends.

TurboTax: The Rap (Extended Version)

With April 18th being the due date this year for our taxes quickly approaching... 

I thought I'd share this video from Remy about the craziness that we all feel about how the chore of doing the yearly taxes...

Do you do your own taxes or do you pay someone else to do them for you?

Increased security at West Hartford synagogue - a reminder

With the events at the Christian churches 
being under attack over in Egypt 
during this Holy Season 
for both Jewish and Christian Faiths... 
We should remember that those types of events,
 could very well occur here in our quiet state of CT...

This news report was from right here in CT not so long ago...

While most people;
 99% of any race, religion or creed are good people...
it's the crazy 1% that do harm 
so the homeland security saying 

"If You See Something Say Something" 
should be kept in the back of your mind...

Keep your eyes and ears open and 
if something looks out of place 
or doesn't seem quite right 
follow your gut instincts
and speak up to a local security or police officer

If You Ain't thought of Murder, You Aint Been in Love @ Bluebird Cafe

Today my #Artful8ths post is sharing a video of a friend;

Paul "PEZMan1963" Z.; who has left CT )0;}

 
PEZ; as he is affectionately known by many, left only partly due to the high cost of living...
Like many who have left CT he was sick and tired of getting his pockets picked by our elected officials and the crazy government overreach. 
 
#MalloysMess has chased many friends and family out of CT

CT's loss has been a #Win for the Music & TV world 
PEZ transplanted to Nashville and is on his way to #FameAndFortune 
So one day I'm going to get a Signed Copy of his "Gold Record" when he hits it big...
(0;} Then I can brag #IKnewHimWhen {;0)

Just Some "Twitter Fun" - #Dr Seuss Break Up

Twitter can be a great source of Quick Information
But it also can be a place for a bit of tongue in cheek fun



Example is the trend on a hot summer weekend when many school romances come to an end
"#DrSuessBreakUp" was an exercise in creativity for some singles & those who have had bad break ups in their past...

How the Minimum Wage Creates Unemployment - #FridayFinances

A short little video which explains how the minimum wage forced upon employers by government officials actually hurts both businesses & people looking for work. 

The government really has no business meddling between the contract made between the employer & the worker...
