The Wesleyan Democrats suggest you vote Democrat on Tuesday. The Democratic candidates and issues on the local ballot will be:
Candidate for Congressional Representative ROSA DELAURO is a member of the House of Representatives since 1991, endorses Universal Healthcare, and is a member of the Labor-Health, Human Services-Education as well as chair of the Agriculture subcommittee.
Candidate for State Senator, PAUL DOYLE has represented Middletown in the State Senate since 2006, has introduced legislation that is pro-environment and is tough against hate crimes. He is also the Chair of the Aging Committee, and the Assistant Majority Whip.
Candidate for State Representative, JOSEPH SERRA has been Middletown’s State Representative since 1992, has a strong voting record for gun control and pro-environmental issues, is Chair of the Select Committee on Aging and serves on the Legislature’s Judiciary and Transportation Committees.
Candidate for Registrar of Voters, SANDRA FARACI is the incumbent registrar.
Should there be a Constitutional Convention to amend Connecticut’s Constitution? NO because right-wing lobbyists will use the convention to ban gay marriage, outlaw abortion, and weaken environmental regulations and workers’ rights.
Should the State Constitution be amended to allow 18 year olds to vote in primaries?
YES because young people’s voices deserve to be heard.
Have fun tomorrow, guys. This should be an interesting day.
