Boughton does the News-Times

Saturday, May 27, 2006
Time: 11:56 AM

I received a lot of emails regarding the online forum with Mayor Boughton at the News-Times and after checking it out, I don't blame any of you who chose not to "join in the discussion."

I mean really, you can't directly ask the mayor a question (it's done by a moderator) and it seems like many of the questions are not being answered. The forum set-up is very wierd (if not plain awful) also as people have to continously refresh their browsers to see whats happening (two words to the News-Times: Java applet).

Anyway, we've cached the interview but there really wan't anything really meaningful discussed so turn off the computer and enjoy the day (it's too beautiful a day to be inside your house).

I have plenty of video to show and I'll roll out the footage over the weekend. I'm going outside!

What happened to the extra details

Thursday, May 25, 2006
Time: 11:55 AM

Hmm, this is very strange. Take a look at political calendar for the committee meetings on Danbury's website and you'll notice something rather odd.

Let's take a look:

Three committee meeting took place on 5/22 which you can see here, here, and here.
Notice the section named extra details. One meeting was for the BRT development on Kennedy Place, another was for BRT - Request for Sewer and Water Extensions, and the final one was for Request for Sewer and Water Extensions - 12 Clapboard Ridge Road

Okay, no problem. Lets continue to 5/23:

There were two committee meeting on this day which you can view here and here. One was for Wireless Edge Lease and the other addressed the Duck Pin Bowling Lease. Again, no big deal.

NOW, lets go to 5/24 (now pay attention):

There were two committee meetings on this day which you can view here and here. One was for Absentee Landlords BUT take a look at the other meeting. Notice something missing? Well, yes, there is no detail or explanation to what this committee meeting was all about.

Why was their no details to this meeting...maybe it had to do with it being the most controversial of all the committee meetings as it has a lot to do with immigrants and the mayor's proposed ordinance on "parade permits."

You think it was strange that the website didn't mention the details of that meeting. Well, not really and I'll explain it all in great detail later as this particular "ordinance" should sound alarm bells throughout Danbury. I couldn't make it to the meeting but I'll give everyone the scoop on what happened including some very interesting video highlights which should shed light on the real meaning behind this so-called "ordinance."

Note to my readers at City Hall: please don't waste your time changing the page because Google cached the original page...

Whoa!

That's expensive.
The first condominiums at Poet’s Landing near Candlewood Town Park will be offered for sale in early September.

The units are priced from $525,000 to $975,000, with the higher prices reserved for the two-story penthouse units that have dual master suites.

[...]

The penthouses are about 2,100-square-feet in size, and on the fourth floor, the deck gives the owner a view north of Candlewood Lake.

Poet’s Landing includes boat slips for each of the 88 condominium units. It includes an outdoor heated pool, whirlpool tub and a clubhouse. The project also includes a 15-person party boat with a crew.
I think I'll pass.

Mayor Boughton stepping into my neighborhood

Tuesday, May 23, 2006
Time: 4:19 PM

Are you serious? I must be dreaming? Mayor Boughton stepping into my arena. Has he any idea how many people read my blogs every day?

Let's give Mayor Boughton a big ol' online welcome!

I encourage everyone to sign up at the News Times website and join in the discussion this Saturday. In fact, I'll make sure I'll forward this to all the national bloggers I know (and beleive me, I knew quite a few) and see if we can get a few more people from around the country to sign up (ha, I said a few).

I'm sure if I give this online forum enough web exposure on the various blogs and newsgroups between now and Saturday, we can cripple the News-Times server with people who are just itching to ask Mayor Boughton a question or two.

Let's make this an interesting online forum, flood the News-Times server with questions, and scare the hell out of online editor Eugene Driscoll.

Oh, this is going to be good...

Xenophobe journey to senate ends

Monday, May 22, 2006
Time: 10:33 AM

Oh no, say it ain't so! Please do tell me this is true. What will we do now that our favorite racist moron is out of the senate race?
The only unknown at the start of Saturday's convention was which Republican would be selected to run for U.S. Senate. Democrats on Friday nominated U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., for a fourth term, but he faces a primary challenge from Democrat Ned Lamont.

The Republicans vying for the nomination were former state Rep. Alan Schlesinger and Paul Streitz of Darien, but Streitz dropped out earlier in the day, leaving Schlesinger as the only candidate.
I'm heartbroken.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
