TIME FOR A "WE THE PEOPLE" CALL TO ACTION
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!
In a city that has been run for almost ten years through corruption and incompetence, it now seems that we are rising to a new height. In a city as financially depressed as Hartford, Mayor Perez is once again proposing a tax increase, an increase in spending, and no mention of controlling or reducing spending.
Yesterday when I posted the proposed budget, the response from blog readers was almost immediate. It is time to be heard and make a change.
I couldn't agree more and a few of you have stepped up to offer to help begin organizing demonstrations at budget hearing and Council meetings.
The time is now to start taking back our city and our local government.
The name of this blog was never more fitting than now.
Let's start by making our voices heard at next Tuesday's Budget comment session at Bulkeley High School. The hearing will be held at Bulkeley High at 300 Wethersfield Avenue, beginning at 6:00PM.
I'll post more on this in the next couple days, but from the couple people that have stepped up to help, we want to be there and be heard. Signs, banners, chanting, loud voices, bring it all as we send a clear message to the Mayor and Council that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
Instead of residents and businesses talking about packing and leaving, maybe it is time to send the politicians who refuse to listen packing instead.
NO MORE TAX INCREASES!!! Instead let's send the message to politicians that it is time to end the frivolous travel. It is time to end "drivers" and other frills for the Mayor. No more "training sessions" at the Orlando Palms for a dozen people at the City's expense. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
If you are part of a group that can turn people out, or even if you just want to bring a few of your neighbors, the time is now. Taxpayers in Hartford can't take anymore of this insane spending.
Feel free to call me or e-mail if you can help organize this demonstration and as always, feel free to post your comments here.
It is time to end the talking and begin the action.
