Are our Council Democrats All Homophobes?


Apparently Alderman Trueworthy chose the correct minority group to viciously attack with hateful remarks because the Democratic members of the City Council seem like they couldn't care less about one of their own Democratic members of the council launching a vicious and hateful attack against gay people. Is it possible that the Democrats on the council share Trueworthy's dislike for gay people?

A number of these Democrats have gone on the record excusing Mr. Trueworthy's disgusting behavior, and even in the face of the Courant editorial calling for Mr. Trueworthy to resign from the council completely, the majority of his fellow council Democrats are publicly stating that he should stay on the council and fight for his job.  Based on their rallying behind Mr. Trueworthy, it appears that this is just the kind of hateful conduct our local Democratic Party stands for!

Do you think that this group would be so forgiving had Mr. Trueworthy gone to Broad Street and made nasty comments to a pair of restaurant owners simply for being from Poland?

How about had he gone to Arch Street and attacked a couple who owns a business there, calling them vile things because they happen to be Puerto Ricans?

What if Mr. Trueworthy were to malign an African American couple with the "N" word simply because they happen to be black?  Before you get upset about such a reference here, let us remember that Mr. Trueworthy reportedly used such vile words in his attack of these business owners who happen to be gay--an incident he admits to.

Had the minority group he victimized been one of these other races or ethnicities, do you think the Democrats on the council would be so forgiving?  Would they be so quick to circle the wagons in defense of his outrageous conduct?

If you agree with me that they probably would not, then the only possible conclusion must be that the rest of the Democrats on the council must share Mr. Trueworthy's homophobia, otherwise, where is their outrage?

"Isn't it time for Trueworthy to Go?"



It is time for Mr. Trueworthy to step down from the city council completely and to take a long break from public service.

It has become common knowledge that he publicly embarrassed himself and the city in 2 recent incidents. 

In the first incident he publicly referred to a woman by using the “C” word or even worse and then told her to go do something sexual to herself.  At the root of this sickening conduct towards a woman was that he seemed to feel he was better than her because he as much as told her so during his intoxicated tirade.
In yet another incident he created a public disturbance in a crowded restaurant by displaying what he described as his personal disgust for homosexuals by reportedly yelling anti-gay remarks across a crowded restaurant at the married gay couple that owns the restaurant.

Mr. Trueworthy has publicly admitted that both of these incidents took place and has apologized for his disgusting and hateful conduct and blames his actions on his admittedly being intoxicated at the time of both of these incidents.  As a token of his sincerity he has offered to step down from his position as the Mayor Pro Tem on the Council, but says he will remain a member of the City Council. But can the public accept him on their council after such openly hateful conduct directed towards two separate minority groups and can we accept his excuse that the booze made him do it? 

Mr. Trueworthy says that his conduct doesn’t really reveal his true feelings toward women and homosexuals, but science tells us otherwise: 

"You can't pour vodka on a turnip and have it say anti-Semitic remarks," and "Alcohol can't make you think or feel things,"  says Gary L. Malone, MD, an addiction psychiatrist and the medical director and chief of psychiatry at Baylor All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas.”

"People should be held accountable for what they say drunk as well as sober, and forgiveness should not be based on 'the alcohol made me do it'…”  adds Carleton Kendrick EdM, LCSW, a family therapist in Boston. "I don't accept that because one does not explode in the tirade that he came forth unprovoked without believing in the thoughts that he expressed," he says.
"Alcoholics will tell you that they try to watch what they say when they are drunk, but that's a conundrum because alcohol frees the tongue to say what is in the heart," he adds. (Is Alcohol a Truth Serum, By DeniseMann, WebMD Feature Reviewed by Louise Chang MD)

Mr. Trueworthy tells us that he doesn’t really hate these 2 groups that he offended, but experts are telling us that alcohol can’t make you say something that you don’t really feel in your heart just because you are intoxicated.  No one can tell us for sure what is really in Mr. Trueworthy’s heart or mind, but after his disgusting conduct toward women and homosexuals, how can either of these groups or even any minority group ever accept him to represent their interests on the council?  Is this the kind of vile and degrading conduct that our local Democratic Party is willing to accept from their leadership? 
As Mr. Kendrick said in his report, people need to be held accountable for what they do when they are drunk and we should not accept “alcohol made me do it” as an excuse, especially when such hatred was launched against 2 distinct minority groups.

It is time for Mr. Trueworthy to stop blaming alcohol for his conduct and do the right thing for the city and the people he was elected to represent including the women and homosexuals he so openly defiled by resigning from the council.

New Britain City Hall Rumors!


Rumors have it that the common council Alderman, President Pro-Tempore, Michael Trueworthy in the presence of Former State Representative David Pudlin is no longer welcome at the West Main Street Pub Restaurant for undignified and abusive language used by the Alderman.
Sadly, this is a poor example of what the New Britain Democratic party has selected to represent the city’s taxpayers, who incidentally, has made known his desire to run for the office of mayor.

Border deal stuck on Dems about face - Washington Examin

“While the border bill has stalled, there is still a small chance for a deal by Thursday, which is the last day the House is in session until Sept. 8. Democrats and Republicans are at odds over a 2008 deportation law that is preventing the fast deportation of the thousands of child migrants who have come here from Central America. President Obama initially backed a move to change the law in order to speed deportation of Central American minors. Federal officials say 61,000 unaccompanied children have crossed the southern border into Texas since October. But under pressure from immigration rights groups, Obama has since backed down and Congressional Democrats now say they oppose changing the law, which currently requires the government provide immigration hearings for Central American youth, a process that can take years. This week, Democrats will have to decide whether a provision to change the 2008 law is a deal breaker, since Republicans in the House are unlikely to pass a border spending bill without it. Both White House officials and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., hinted Democrats might give in on allowing a change to the provision… If Congress agrees to pass a spending bill, it will likely be smaller than Obama's $3.7 billion request.”

Bridgeport BOE Issue!


The Bridgeport, Conn, Board of Education is contemplating re-naming the Warren G. Harding High School which was named after our former President however, the structure has aged and is being replaced and they are entertaining renaming the new school in honor of President Obama.   The liberals in Bridgeport should be reminded that President Harding school was named after our 29th. President and  naming the new proposed school after any other President would indeed be shameful in denying the students of the historical heritage of their former President.

The Haircut:

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut.
  After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.'  The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank
you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the
barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you , I'm doing community service this week.'
The cop was happy and left the shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you'
card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill,
the barber again replied, 'I can not accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.'  The Congressman was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen
Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

The “TANS” proposal to the common council membership!


When the city hired a consultant to advise the council membership of the necessity to avoid a takeover of the city’s finances by the state three of the members continued with their disbelief that this could happen for nearly a period of three hours.  They were advised that this similar situation occurred to the cities of Bridgeport and Waterbury, Conn.  When the voting occurred three of the Alderman that voted for the takeover by the state were Aldermen David DeFronzo, Michael Trueworthy, and Adam Platosz.
Rumors have it that David DeFronzo has planned to run for mayor during the next election cycle overshooting Trueworthy’s desires to venture for the same Democratic party selection for the same spot.
The electorate of the city of New Britain should be forewarned to not re-elect these three Alderman that voted for the state takeover of our city’s finances, by their voting for the “TANS” proposal, because they were not really representing their electorate’s best interest.  

Why would Hamas negotiate with John Kerry after getting $47 million from him?

Because Kerry is as weak as his boss, "OBAMA."

The COSTCO Dilemma !


Alderman Michael Trueworthy has been quoted, in a local newspaper, with his introducing his plan of eminent domain which his party chairman has been accusing Mayor Erin Stewart of possibly doing, on his blog, over the Costco proposed building in New Britain, but Trueworthy has added a new wrinkle to this issue with his citing “ We need it for public use and access for public safety equipment.”  Many are asking how can Alderman Trueworthy introduce his eminent domain proposal when in reality it’s a business to business issue?
Alderman Louis Salvio was absolutely correct when he criticized Aldermen Sanchez and DeFronzo when the Democratic Council waved millions of dollars of potential income from the tax agreement agreed by the HRA agency and the city for its addition they built on Clinton Street with their supporting the waver.
From day one, upon the introduction of the COSTCO plan, Alderman DeFronzo has opposed it and continues to do so.

“After first supporting common-sense changes to the 2008 law that is making it more difficult to resolve this crisis, the White House backpedalled and failed to include those changes in its formal request to Congress. Meanwhile, many Democrats in Congress have reversed themselves and now say no changes to the 2008 law are acceptable.  As I said last week, I don’t believe the American people will support sending more money to the border unless both parties work together to address these policies and actually solve this problem. The lack of leadership from this White House, and President Obama’s refusal to stand up to critics in his own political party, are jeopardizing our ability to find common ground and help the kids who are caught in the middle of this crisis.” – House Speaker John Boehner in a statement on the president’s demand for new border spending.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is taking the next step today as he is expected to order 1,000 members of the Texas National Guard to defend the Rio Grande Valley amid an ongoing surge in illegal immigration. The plan, outlined in a memo leaked by a Democratic state legislator who opposes the idea, would put the troops in place over the span of a month with the aim of freeing federal immigrations and border officials to attend to the tens of thousands of migrant minors already in U.S. custody.

How did President Ronald Reagan handle a similar situation in the summer of 1983? Watch Megyn Kelly and Chris Stirewalt discuss that incident and its lessons for today. One takeaway: Reagan didn’t speak publicly on the subject for four days and spoke with gravity from the Oval Office in a primetime address when he did. “[President Obama’s] endless talking, his endless fundraising, his endless effort to control every 15 minutes of every news cycle saps him of the ability to speak with authority and resolution when he needs to,” Stirewalt said.

While a pair of fellow Texan lawmakers look to modify a 2008 law that many blame for the current border crisis, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says that he’s more concerned about undoing a 2012 executive order Obama issued allowing the children of illegal immigrant to remain in the U.S. “Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier [told Politico] the senator’s “top priority” is to end the deferred action program, noting that he is drafting a legislative proposal to prohibit the White House from broadening the policy. “We believe that needs to be a prerequisite of any bill that is considered by the Senate,” Frazier said.


In recent weeks, Democrats have decried racism toward President Obama, including in the form of a Nebraska parade float depicting Obama’s presidential library as an outhouse. That float is now the subject of a Department of Justice probe. Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano argues that America’s first freedoms are at stake: “Surely, government officials can use words to defend themselves; in fact, one would hope they would. Yet, when the people fear exercising their expressive liberties because of how the governmental targets they criticize might use the power of the government to stifle them, we are no longer free.”

Politics May Prevent Obama From Going His Own Way on Illegals


WaPo: “A pair of lawmakers from Texas will introduce bipartisan legislation in Congress on [today] to speed up the deportations of tens of thousands of Central American children who have entered the country illegally across the southern border. Sen. John Cornyn (R) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D) say their bill aims to amend a 2008 law that currently requires the federal government to provide greater legal protections to young immigrants who attempt to enter the United States from noncontiguous countries. The legislation would rewrite the law to allow Central American minors be treated like those from Mexico and Canada, who can be deported more quickly. Under the plan, unaccompanied minors from any country would be able to have an immigration court hearing within seven days of their processing by Health and Human Services, and an immigration judge would be required to rule within three more days on whether the child would be allowed to stay or be deported. The bill authorizes 40 new immigration judges to help process the cases. The lawmakers are calling their bill the HUMANE Act, an acronym for: Helping Unaccompanied Minors and Alleviating National Emergency.”

CPOA isn’t a one-party organization

I am writing in response to a recent Herald article as an ultra-conservative registered Democrat and former president of the Citizens Property Owners Association for 18 years.  We had members of both political parties, among them many well-known Democrats (mayors, city officials, department heads and professionals whose party affiliation had no bearing) and they chose to be taxpayer watchdogs. All were conservative thinkers.

To assume it was a one-party association for taxpayers is ridiculous. The concern of this association is to keep city government accountable for its spending and taxation. We always welcome members to be a partner for New Britain’s good welfare.

Incidentally, as its former president over the years, our association had the best working and cooperative relationship with former Mayor Timothy Stewart who was always receptive to taxpayers’ concerns. We look forward to the same spirit of cooperation from our mayor, Erin Stewart.

Congratulations are now in order to Michael DeGrandis, newly elected president of this organization in its 90th year to continue our worthwhile mission.

New Britain Mayor Faces Criticism Over Social Media Posts -


A local paper honored State Representative Robert Sanchez who is seeking his third term by citing the many good things he has done but failed to recognize that he was formerly an HRA employee under Former mayor and state Commissioner, Donald DeFronzo.   All the city residents cannot help wondering why HRA had its tax liability forgiven by the O’Brien Administration for 5.5 million dollars but are slowly connecting the reasons why Commissioner DeFronzo gave Former Mayor O’Brien a state job, this of course poisoned any potential of his son David of ever being able to be elected mayor of the city as his father was.

The HRA connivers is all the electorate need to recall.      

Alderman Louis Salvio Attacks Fellow Alderman for Supporting O'Brien's False Income Budget Proposals

Other than articles printed in local daily and weekly newspapers one sees precious little in letters to the editor from local residents about important projects being considered by New Britain. I guess many of these people prefer the anonymity of the blogs where they can indulge in name calling, profanity and nonsensical comments, with impunity. This letter makes just a few comments about one proposed New Britain project, the possible coming to the city of the membership type retail giant, COSTCO.

While some blog commenters and even some City officials have concentrated on what they consider negative aspects of the proposal, few have seen and spoken in favor of the possible economic benefits to the City. E.g.: the addition of 220 jobs to this area, good jobs with benefits, averaging better than minimum wage; much needed tax revenues for the City - yes, less than originally mentioned but additional monies that the City does not have now. The benefits are many to the greater number of taxpayers while the negatives are few.
On the issue of property taxes: it is patently obvious that some commenters confuse the issues of abatement of taxes and waiving of taxes. Because of cost overruns resulting from unforeseen circumstances, Costco has requested tax abatement from New Britain, NOT tax waiving! Tax abatement means reducing the amount of taxes, payments made over a short period of time - seven years in this case . Taxes will be paid, all new revenues.  Waiving taxes means forgiving them, perhaps in perpetuity. The city gets nothing, forever!
EXAMPLE. During the last months of the O’Brien Administration, the Common Council (then, 13 Democrats and 2 Republicans), at the request of Mayor Tim O’Brien, PROUDLY waived the property taxes of The Hunan Resources Agency (HRA) of New Britain on Clinton St.  Potentially, over $20 million dollars over just 20 years. Nine (9) of those Democrats still serve on the Council today. Commenting on the Costco proposal in a local newspaper today, Alderman David DeFronzo said, “  . Council member David DeFronzo, who has opposed the project from the start, said tax incentives would make it even less attractive.”  It was OK though to waive HRA taxes! In The Fall of 2013, when writing profiles of candidates running in the municipal election, Herald writer Robert Storace quoted  Alderman DeFronzo as saying that he (DeFronzo) strongly supported O’Brien’s budget. Go figure.

Obama’s Vision for American Military Might: Caring for Illegal Immigrants and Fighting for Muslims


It looks like congressional Democrats got a little ahead of the White House in touting the president’s decision to drop efforts to deport tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors who have surged across the southern U.S. border to take advantage of the administration’s policy of granting sanctuary to migrant children. After the AP cited Hill sources claiming that President Obama, bowing to liberal worries, would drop his request for rapid deportation authority, the White House pushed back saying that the request was still part of a package headed to Congress today seeking billions in new spending and other legal changes to address the border surge.


Puget Sound Business Journal: “Nearly half of insurance brokers polled nationally have considered leaving the industry in the wake of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – meanwhile, employers say they need them more than ever before, according to a report by Aflac. A potential exodus of brokers could make it more difficult for large and small businesses to lose that expertise just as things are getting really complicated. Brokers help companies give employees the best and most affordable coverage and insure they comply with the complexities of the ACA….Brokers have only seen their jobs get more difficult since the dawn of the Affordable Care Act. They're under pressure to deliver employers low-cost health care, but that can be increasingly difficult. Others fear losing customers to public and private health exchanges. And when brokers look elsewhere for work they take their expertise with them. Many had previously expressed concern that the introduction of the health exchanges would take business away from them.”

The Road Not Taken: Could City Take Back Land From Target’s Landlord?

Problem solved?Take access road away from Tartaglias by eminent domain... Costco To Make Pitch For Tax Breaks



Monday, July 7, 2014

To the Editor/ By: Alderman Don Naples

The editorial, “Money Management 101,” that appeared in the June 27 Herald does a disservice to city leaders, especially Mayor Erin Stewart. While the Herald shakes its head and wonders “where have all the leaders gone?” the mayor, her staff and city department heads have been working tirelessly to get New Britain’s finances and major projects back on track.

While not pointing “fingers of responsibility at any one politician or party,” the editorial laments a two-year delay in the Costco project, and the loss of $904,416 in federal grant funds due to two years of failure to commit a total of $1.2 million to a specific project. It’s obvious to everyone but the Herald editors where the problem was. The O’Brien Administration’s decision to abolish the Department of Municipal Development left the city without anyone to administer federal grant funds and the projects that they created. This was a disaster for our city and we are paying the price for it.

One of Mayor Stewart’s first acts following her election in November was to restore the Municipal Development Department. This was not an easy task, given the city’s recent extensive reorganization and the financial crisis at that time. After some initial squabbling about over-extended bonding (which threatened the city’s credit rating) Common Council members from both sides have been working together with a few exceptions to grapple with a broad range of issues facing New Britain. Much of the preparatory work is done in council committees, before resolutions are presented to the full council for a vote.

These committee meetings draw little attention from the press or the public.

It’s easy to take pot shots from afar. The editorial says “the city and its leaders must up their game”. My response: Up yours by reporting what is actually happening — good as well as bad — instead of making controversial statements in a vacuum. Only then will you recognize the strong leadership that is right under your noses.

Remembering The Hartford Circus Fire 70 Years Ago Today:

Veterans please read!!

It doesn't matter to me if you are a veteran or not.  Please read and forward this to all your e-mail buddies.  It needs to go viral.

The 2014 United States elections will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. During this midterm election year, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives and 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested in this election. Get out and VOTE!!!!)
A movement has been started by our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014...They are organizing themselves, but this can be done by all of us. The President, the Commander in Chief, has made the Rules of Engagement (ROE) so difficult, that our troops are often killed before they can even get permission to fight. Nothing has been done to stop our troops from being murdered by the Afghanis they are training, either.

Now, the President wants the US to sign on to the UNs International Criminal Court (ICC), which would allow the UN's ICC to arrest and try US troops for War Crimes, without the legal protections guaranteed under US Law, and from which there is no > appeal. The President, with his Democratic control of the Senate, has nearly all the power.
If the Non-Establishment Republicans, and Conservatives, can take back the Senate in 2014, our troops can once again be protected from unnecessary danger.

Please consider this, and send it on to your mailing lists.
Interestingly enough, when GWB was president you heard about the military deaths in Iraq  and Afghanistan almost daily. With Obama in the White House, the mainstream media has been strangely quiet. -
More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the five years before that. Many have died since August. During the last six month, over 50 additional NATO and US servicemen have been murdered, inside jobs by those who are hired to be a "force for good in Afghanistan."
The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-staff for the Sikhs that were killed. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president.
It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war. Obama has had 5 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform. But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president's party. Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November 2014 mid-term election, if they all respond.
The one million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turnout to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.
Veterans: Please forward to your lists.

High Priority!

DTC Chair Fails at Basic Math

DTC Chair Fails at Basic Math

In a recent update to his blog (, DTC Chairman John McNamara accuses Republican Aldermen of trying to “weaken” New Britain’s blight ordinances. He then goes on to assert that this is “payback” to unnamed “out of town landlords”. This tired allegation did not stop the people of New Britain from electing Erin Stewart over Tim O’Brien by a thousand vote margin, but apparently Mr. McNamara doesn’t know a losing argument when he hears one. Maybe he feels these baseless accusations will have more traction the second time around.
But let’s take a second to look at his actual claim. The current ordinance imposes a $250 after a 30-day grace period to repair the violation. The amended ordinance would call for a $90 ticket per violation that is issued at the time a violation is cited and if that ticket is not paid within 15 days it is subject to an additional penalty of three times the original amount.
Mr. McNamara is claiming that:
No matter how you do the math the $90 fine even when it triples weakens anti-blight enforcement and takes  an important economic tool away from the city to crack down on blight..
However, a quick look at the math proves him dead wrong. Here is a likely scenario, a building inspector notices a blighted building. The grass is overgrown, there are a few broken windows, perhaps some other notable problems. Now what happens under the two plans:

O’Brien’s Plan

Under this plan the inspector cites the violation and the property owner has 30 days to fix the problems. If he fixes them, no penalty, but lets assume he does not. At the 30-day mark he is hit with a $250 ticket, the officer then needs to return every day to issue another ticket in order to make the $250/day citation work. What if the owner cleans up the problems from the original citation but now there is a NEW problem? Well, then the 30-day grace period starts all over again.
The bottom line? At the end of the 30-day mark the city has between $0-$250.

The GOP’s Plan

Under this plan the property owner is immediately hit with a $90 ticket at the time of the violation. They then have 15 days, not 30, to fix the problem. If the ticket is not paid by the 15 day mark then the bill jumps from $90 to $360 ($90×3, plus the original ticket). If the property is not cleaned up by the 15 day mark the city can then go in under the clean and lien policy and fix the problem and bill the property owner (in addition to the ticket). What if the property owner cleans up the property? They still have a $90 ticket that they need to pay. This is important because if you give every violation a grace period and no penalty there is no incentive to upkeep your property. Just wait for it to get bad enough that you are cited and then go in and clean it up.
The bottom line? At the end of the 30-day mark the city has between $90-$720 and also has the opportunity to go in and clean up the property.

What’s better for the City

Part of the reason O’Brien’s blight policies were a complete failure during his tenure was in addition to having endless revolving grace periods he was unwilling to committed the needed city resources to address the problem. Smart property owners could easily game the system to their advantage and avoid paying fines while honest working citizens were often targeted for minor infractions with no knowledge of how to comply or fix the problem. The new plan closes glaring loopholes in O’brien’s failed policies and also creates a strong disincentive for property owners to allow their property to repeatedly fall into decline.
One only has to look at the lack of “blight” revenue raised during O’brien’s entire tenure to see that his policies were abject failures. For Mr. McNamara to defend them shows that he cares far more about stirring the pot of partisan politics than he does about actually improving the blight conditions in our city.
