One Week Ago
One week ago, some changes took place in two Connecticut towns that will help advance economic freedom.
The residents of New Britain rejected the failed liberal policies of Mayor Tim O’Brien. They had had enough of the education and tax issues facing the town and the senseless 9-1-1 tax. Last Tuesday New Britain residents replaced Mayor O’Brien with Erin Stewart.
In Meriden, a town where PLA agreements drove a school construction project 30% over budget, the voters held the Mayor accountable. Mayor Rohde, who had vetoed the city council’s attempt to remove the PLA and re-open the bidding process, was replaced.
As Thomas Jefferson once said, “The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.” If our state’s and our town’s economic conditions are going to change for the better, we must continue our efforts to advance economic freedom and liberty at the state and local levels.
Thank you for your vigilance and all you to do engage our elected officials on the issues that impact us all.
