I TAKE IT BACK, MAYBE WOODEN DIDN'T FIND A BACKBONE

I usually think that if you are going to be making accusations against someone, be a man and own up to it. Anyone can find some stooge to carry their water for them, and today Council President Shawn Wooden did just that.

Although he sent out press releases apparently attempting to show how upset he was with his Senate race opponent, he apparently wasn't upset enough to sign his name to an SEEC elections complaint.

The complaint below was apparently filed today by Councilwoman Cynthia Jennings and Hartford Democratic party operative John Gale.

As the complaint states , much of the evidence is subjective. I have to agree with that. There are no clear cut facts as to whether Coleman's mailing was improper or not. Is Coleman's objection to the stadium deal as candidate Coleman or was he representing his constituents as Senator Coleman. Since every news report I saw identified him as Senator Coleman, I think that it would be hard to prove  anything he said was as a candidate and had no bearing on his position as a Senator.

 The law does seem to be somewhat ambiguous and actually addressed in two different titles of the Connecticut General statutes

Like I said in the previous posting, lets get to the facts and knock off the nonsense. It is beneath the dignity we expect of the Senate.

Maybe the Councilwoman should take some time writing checks for her back taxes rather than writing baseless SEEC complaints. What is next , a statement on ethics from Councilman Aponte?

City money for the Gale's said...

Attorney John Gale and his daughter have been on the City payroll for years. His daughter received City money for her business and Attorney Gale gets alot of City legal work.Jennings lives in Windsor and wanted her Council salary to be 90k...what an outrage she is.Neither have even 1/10th the ethics that Senator Coleman has.

leave Wooden alone, he'll just do anything to get elected. Anything. Yesterday he's for a baseball stadium, you know, that done deal stadium. Thought support for a stadium will be popular. Today, after learning there's no support and no money for a stadium, Wooden is now against a stadium. This guy is clueless about budgets and finance. Clueless. Let him say anything he wants, just don't pay any attention. And remember to show him the door coming election day.

Kevin: Please review the document you attached to this post. I do not believe it is the document you describe in your post.

Much ado about very little at the SEEC, but hey, remember how bad things were here before we had the SEEC?

Perhaps we should stop funding mailing of printed material altogether by our Solons in the Nutmeg Legislature. Our household got two of the Coleman letters, and they were, of course, round-filed without being read. Same thing happens with clutter sometimes received from the (easily over-)estimable Minnie Gonzales.
At the Senator's website I find nothing about the baseball stadium. But, speaking of abuse of taxpayers and mis-expenditure of public money, I did find this reference to Coleman's excitement over a transfer to UTC.
---------
"...the State of Connecticut will allow exchange of approximately $20 million per year of UTC’s previously earned but unused tax credits to finance the construction, up to a maximum of $400 million. The exchanged credits will be offset with tax reductions over a 14-year period..."

Wooden is a weasel, he feels entitled and when things don't go his way he runs.... he kinda looks like Forest Gump;" Run Forest Run", Run the hell out of Hartford, you couldn't get closer out of the city, living on the line, being on the fence as a so called Council President, teaming up with the Pervert Msyor for self reward, Wooden you are a USELESS LOOSER, SPINELESS MAN with NO PERSONLITY, VISON or knowledge of Hartford,

Lets see how he handles the Stadium Protest today, he should ask for a spot on yhe team as a SWITCH HITTER, we know he can do that!

Could you be more specific, where exactly he collect his rent checks, we should know the truth about our elected officials, not only what they're telling us
