John McNamara wrote" The fifth district should remain what it is now.: a mix of urban and suburban and the wealthy and the working class voting together. Taking New Britain out of the 5th. District will create an imbalance and reduce the chances of advancing the state's common interest by its Congressional delegation".

Yes John, it would make a change by joining the 1rst District with your losing your socialistic hold onto the population in our area.

This change should have occurred a long time ago.

When in England ,
at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the
Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of

It’s been about a month since the inauguration ceremony for the new Council and the Mayor. In that time, Mayor O’Brien has ordered a hiring freeze - one had been in place for years -an d then went ahead and hired: a new “communications director” (Sherwood), and pledged to hire 27 new police officers. A grant has come available that will pay the salaries of some of the police candidates while in the training academy. What NB taxpayers have not been told is that taxpayers will pick up the costs for the benefits package for all trainees while in the academy.

A three-member “Task Force” has been formed to audit the city’s budget. I’d like to know how you audit a budget! A Budget is just a line item document that, when approved by the Common Council, shows where each department will be allowed to spend funds. If the Task Force is going to be allowed to determine if departments are spending money “wisely”, then what is/was the purpose of having the Finance Board, the Mayor and the Council scrutinizing the departmental requests and then having the Council give final approval of the budget? The NB Charter specifies how a budget will be prepared, by whom it will be adjusted and then, finally approved. Nothing the task force does can usurp the Charter.

Also, tell me, why do the Mayor and his Communications Director have personal e-mail addresses and not city addresses, e.g., O’Brien’s is, Aren’t these two using city computers? Is there a problem with “transparency” here? Watch closely folks!

Finally, as the titular head of the Democratic Party in New Britain, perhaps Mayor O'Brien can get the people elected with him to pay their taxes, namely, Alderman, Rahsheen Brown, Constable, Peter Spano, Constable, James Rathbun!

Peter Steele Qualifies for Campaign Grant
NEW BRITAIN – Today the State Elections Enforcement Commission approved Peter Steele’s application for a public grant from the Citizen’s Election Program for the special election of the 24th General Assembly District.

The CEP required Steele to raise $3,750 in small contributions and have at last 113 donors that reside within New Britain and Newington. The approval of the application means that Steele’s campaign will receive a grant of $19,500. Steele’s report submitted more than 140 individual donations totaling over $3,900.

“I’m happy with the overwhelming support I’ve received and I’m encouraged that so many people want me to run for the seat,” Steele said. “As I meet with the district residents and listen to their concerns, it’s clear that we have to change the way the state government is operating. New Britain and Newington residents worry everyday that they will be hit with another tax bill from Hartford. People can’t afford it they are fed up, and so am I.”

“Residents need an experienced job-creator, like myself, to help bring jobs back to Connecticut and get our state working again. I will bring common sense and balance back to the Connecticut Legislature,” Steele added.

Steele is a 62 year old lifelong resident of New Britain; he is a US Army veteran having served our country in Vietnam. In addition to being a real estate agent, Pete worked for eight years under former New Britain Mayor, Timothy Stewart, as his executive aide. He has also served on numerous boards and commissions within the city including Chairman of NB Housing Authority, board member of NB HRA, member of NB Parks and Recreation commission, and former president of PAL board of directors.

The Special Election is scheduled for Tuesday January 10th.

BRISTOL — For decades, former Bristol Press Publisher Bart Barnes pushed, prodded and poked those in power to get a highway that would connect Bristol to the interstate system to the east and Thomaston to the west.

Though he lived a long time — 96 active years — he never saw it happen.

“That was probably his greatest disappointment,” Donald Selina, former general manager of the paper, said shortly after Barnes’ death in 2004.

Now, though, the new Route 72 extension from Plainville to Middle Street — a truncated version of the roadway that Barnes sought — will carry his name.

New Britain Busway station bids lower than estimated - The Bristol Press (

New Britain Busway station bids lower than estimated - The Bristol Press ( NEW BRITAIN — The state Department of Transportation has received bids well below previous estimates for three major construction contracts for the New Britain-Hartford Busway.

The low bids for the three contracts averaged about 20 percent below engineers’ estimates, officials said.

Estimates for construction of the Busway station in downtown New Britain ranged as high as $35 million, but the lowest bid came in at $26.7 million from Manafort Brothers Inc. of Plainville. The downtown station is expected to be the largest Busway station, situated on Main Street and extending back toward the current police station.

A segment of the station will be built in a northerly direction along an abandoned rail line, over Route 9 on a new bridge, to Stanley Street, a distance of approximately 0.7 miles. The off-ramp from Route 72 to Route 71 will be realigned to allow express buses from south and west of New Britain to enter the station area.

NEW BRITAIN — The Common Council is expected Wednesday to approve the formation of a six-member committee to review the city’s response to the late October snowstorm, despite former Mayor Timothy T. Stewart’s assertion that one member is biased and that the inquiry should not be done.

Democratic Alderman David DeFronzo, who sponsored the resolution to review the response, said Friday the committee is not aimed at singling out any one person or department. Rather, DeFronzo said, it will look at how the city can do a better job the next time a major storm hits.

A council agenda released Friday included the names of the six people who will be appointed to the committee should the council approve its formation, which is expected.

DeFronzo has taken issue with Stewart’s decision not to open the city’s Emergency Operations Center during the October snowstorm

Another reason why Obama has GOT to go.

According to NASA administrator Charles Bolden, Obama now thinks it is more appropriate for America's space program to tout the alleged scientific contributions of Islam than it is to push the frontiers of space exploration.

Forget about exploring Mars, the purpose of NASA is to raise Muslim self-esteem.

Or, as Obama might put it: "Ask not what NASA can do for America's space program, ask what it can do for Islam!"

The New Mayor's First Executive Order.


The new Mayor's executive order instituting a city wide hiring freeze lasted only moments with his subsequent appointment of Phil Sherwood as his communication director for 45K annually.

The Appointment of Rosemary Klotz was prudent since he had to replace his predecessor's aid, but many are questioning the higher salary negotiated with this new employee by Phil Sherwood—who apparently has the sole authority to determine employee salaries within the new administration.

The Mayor appointing Manuel Reyes as the New Police commission chairperson was an excellent choice but--appointing the wife of an alderman to the police board, one that owes back taxes together with her husband, sends the wrong message to the taxpayers—that not paying your taxes is something this administration rewards or even applauds!

The hiring freeze continues to be vacated with the hiring of 18 new police officers with O'Brien stating that he decided to make an exception to his hiring freeze because these officers are funded by a federal COPS program that Police Chief William Gagliardi requested in order to alleviate the shortage of police staffing--which is greatly needed for the citizens safety. Another unanswered question is who pays for these 18 salaries when the COPS grant runs out?—a common problem with all COPS grants.

During the election process Mayor O'Brien opposed the Costco plans A & B and recently announced that he is reviewing the options for building the Costco Store on Hartford Road, but the busway has his full support. Of course we just learned of plans to build low rent public housing projects at or near each of the busway stops—a fact that was kept remarkably secret during the many public hearings.

The Mayor recently announced the appointment of a financial review task force giving full access to all city departments with all three appointees having great credentials. But the question arises will they be paid for meeting with the department heads during the daytime or will such meetings occur in the evening with the department heads and/or employees required to attend these meetings to answer operational procedures drawing overtime from the city for attending?

General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis To Beijing, China.

In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will
invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research

This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year but
paid no taxes-the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in
the United States.

So let's get this straight.
Obama appointed GE Chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission
on job creation (job czar). Immelt is supposed to help create jobs.

I guess Obama forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed
to be creating those jobs.
If this doesn't show you the total lack of leadership of this President,
I don't know what does.
Please pass this on to others and think twice before buying a GE
