With less than a week to go until the primary, Democratic State Senate candidates Duane Perkins and Terry Tierney are hitting the airwaves.

Wisely taking advantage of the Olympics, the Perkins campaign released a very impressive new TV ad entitled "Fresh Ideas, New Energy" which is set to be broadcast on Comcast over the next few days.
The Perkins campaign for State Senate released its first campaign commercial being shown for the Democratic primary on August 12th. The spot dubbed, “Fresh Ideas, New Energy” which is also Duane Perkins’ campaign theme is the title of the ad and it will be shown on a number of cable stations starting Wednesday, August 6th and through the day of the primary.

Duane Perkins said, “I am proud to be able to share some of my biography and positions on the issues through the mass media. To be able to produce and run a television ad demonstrates my ability to win this primary and will further my name recognition so that I am in the best position to be elected in the general election.”

Amongst the two candidates competing in the August 12th primary, Mr. Perkins is the only candidate to qualify for the Citizens Elections Financing. Mr. Perkins said, “I am now able to focus on my grassroots efforts of going door to door and communicating with the voters my message of being the best candidate to support issues that matter to working families and my determination to stand up for what is right.”

Terry Tierney is scheduled to be a guest on the local access show live call-in show "Ideas at Work and Beyond" (which will broadcasted live on the internet). Tierney will answer viewer's question about his campaign, outline his platform, and explain why he feels he's the better candidate to challenge Republican Mike McLaughlin.

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.
