Foley and Boughton's hometown papers have one thing in common...

...The News-Times and Greenwich Time both endorsed the Dan Malloy/Nancy Wyman ticket.

The Malloy campaign issued the following statement in regards to the endorsements:
The Greenwich Time and the Danbury News-Times, the respective hometown papers of Republican candidates for Governor and Lt. Governor Tom Foley and Mark Boughton, have both endorsed Dan Malloy’s candidacy for Governor. Malloy has also been endorsed by the New York Times, the Hartford Courant, the Connecticut Post, and the Norwich Bulletin, among other papers.

The Greenwich Time says that “this campaign is about experience, and whose is best suited to the job of governor,” and that only one candidate – Dan Malloy – “took over a city where it was not entirely safe to walk the downtown streets at night and left a place with a thriving core.” They also note that Malloy “steered a city toward a new identity as a financial center, provided preschool for poor children, was a leader in providing affordable housing, began the difficult process of revitalizing a depressed waterfront district -- the list goes on.”

The Time also says Malloy “has proven he can go out and get businesses. He did it for Stamford. And during a time when Connecticut cities were losing population, Stamford's rose under Mr. Malloy,” and they said that when it comes to taxes, Stamford’s increases “were modest compared with other communities.”

They conclude: “This is an election about experience. And if ever there has been someone with the right experience to be governor, it's Stamford's former mayor.”

The Danbury News-Times says that: “After two decades in which the state's largest cities have continued to deteriorate and the educational system has failed many of its children, and with a massive $3.5 billion deficit looming, Connecticut needs a strong, effective, experienced governor to make the hard decisions that will need to be made. We believe Dan Malloy is the right leader for the times.”

They conclude: “These are tough times, and they require a governor who has the best combination of leadership skills, experience and compassion to take the state in the proper direction. We firmly believe that leader is Dan Malloy.”

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.
