There was a brief bright spot in Connecticut in the 61st District as Republican Tami Zawistowski won the Special Election to replace Democrat Elaine C. O'Brien who passed away seven weeks ago. Ms. Zawistowski won by a large margin also in the election.
Could this be a trend for November? Could it mean the end of Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule? Maybe we are seeing that taxpayers are irate over the way Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule has damaged Connecticut economically? The tide has turned and the Democrats are going to be in full spin mode trying to salvage November. I feel their losses will be mounting through this year.
Another example of the State Legislatures lack of reality, is the Senate led by retiring Senate President Pro Tem Don Williams passed a bill to ban genetically engineered grass seed designed to resist pesticides and herbicides. However the product apparently has not been developed yet or is in the market. The House voted down the bill. My question as a taxpayer is why was this bill even discussed? With all of the economic problems Connecticut has this was the most pressing issue he could legislate? And why is Mr. Williams a leading candidate to become President of Quinebaug Valley Community College? Political connections? How is he qualified for this position? After teaching for 32 years why am I not qualified? I forgot I am not part of the politically elite that have used their political offices for personal and economic gain as is done so well by Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule. Taxpayers serve our elected officials here in Connecticut-this is just another example.
