WINTER FOLLOWS AUTUMN AND MOVES ON INTO SPRING
December 21st: This is the darkest day of the year.
MARCH WAS FOR ID#47
As a matter of fact, more than half-a-dozen from audience did speak up at the end. We actually asked it.
FEB. 20th GOV. LAMONT SET THE TABLE AND NEXT DAY, AS BEST AS I COULD FIGURE, NO GOOD NEWS FROM OPM...
OPM Secretary lays it out day after the budget message, to Appropriations Committee.
- States that those who can afford it will pay more ("those" means "towns" in this case)
- Claims this proposal to
pass along teacher retirement is only current costs and not legacy
obligations - negotiate better contracts is the solution? You
LWV of Weston "Speak Up 2019" Feb. 9. 2019 at Weston Library
As it rolled out...
How to explain the school budget? And below, perhaps more intimidating - do we have control of CT's either - "fixing the damn budget" 2019?
"Speak Up 2019" like the Yukon Quest? No. Why? There is no barking permitted. However, one of the final questions was actually an excellent reminder of major events for 2 and 4 legged athletes - WOOF!!!
Standing room only and
some were pleasantly surprised that attendance had not suffered and no
one seemed to miss the FORUM...since no one asked a question! Good
job, Weston-Today! Thanks to Facebook - generated younger attendees!
CHENA AT KIWANIS DOG JAMBOREE 2019? RESERVOIR RUN?
CHENA CHENA CHENA
Yukon Quest 200 Champions!!! Chena in swing! YQ1000 team finished #3...
HOW DOES THE STATE OF CT RESEMBLE PARIS? SORT-OF...IF THIS BILL PASSES, PERHAPS, WHICH HAS BIPARTISAN SUPPORT? TAX ON ALL BAGS
We're on the case! Environment Committee doing hemp and a bag (even paper) tax; Committees
to have organizational meetings in the next week. Highlights of
Governor Lamont's address to the Joint Convention here
ALTHO' POLITICS IS LIKE FOOTBALL...
Countdown to "Speak Up" on February 9th...can Weston lead the way to rebirth of civility? We never lost it!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO GOVERNOR MALLOY AND SOME IN THE FOURTH ESTATE MAY NOT MISS YOU.
Action, motion and ready at the draw...
Having been familiar with his earlier, long stint as Mayor of Stamford, I
can tell you he is blue to the core,
but wound up like the inside of a "SPALDEEN"
New face for "Speak Up" February 9, 2019...
