  1. Rocky Hill Democrats cancel fundraiser honoring Doyle.

    Democrats listen to Healy.

    Rocky Hill Democrats have canceled the May 9th event and will reschedule later in September. It has also been learned that Paul Doyle will not be their honoree at that future event.

    On April 21st CT GOP Chair, Chris Healy said; “Rocky Hill Democrats Shouldn’t Honor Doyle”

  2. I’d be interested to see how many people on here think Lamont is actually going to run….

  3. Bruce Rubenstein

    I hear thru the grapevine that Ned has met with some democratic operatives lately to help him assess the race….It is very certainly that he is “bitten by the bug” of public service, but who knows what he will do.He would be as least as good a candidate as any of the 3 candidates who are often mentioned and possibly better, given his successful business backround.

  4. State employees received this e-mail today . . .

    “TO: Managers, Supervisors & AFSCME Employees
    Subject: AFSCME Union Contract Vote Cancelled

    Please be advised that the AFSCME Union has cancelled their contract vote scheduled for tomorrow April 24. No information is available at this time on a rescheduled date for voting. Employees should direct any questions to their Union.

    You may consult the AFSCME Union web site at: http://www.local749.org . The telephone number for AFSCME is: 203-213-8450″

    I also hear that the State Police and Corrections Unions are considering voting against the proposed union contract agreement, because they are not fearful of layoffs.

    Is the Rell – union compromise at risk? It certainly seems like it.

  5. Is the Rell – union compromise at risk? It certainly seems like it.

    21,000 General Motors employees weren’t too worried about layoffs either.
