The dishonest one is at it again...this time it's about education

Wednesday, October 05, 2011
Time: 8:51 PM



The dishonest one is at it again...this time Boughton misleads the public regarding the political makeup of the Board of Education.

Danbury Patch
Boughton said if Lynn really thought education was a priority for the city, she would have recruited a full slate of candidates for the Board of Education, rather than half a slate. He said the Democrats controled the board until 2009 for the previous 30-plus years. 

"They had all the time in the world to expand the classrooms," Boughton said.

Nice try Mark put those in the game know that you're lying your ass off.

Although this requires a bit of explaining (which I'll do in a future post REAL SOON) Boughton knows he's being dishonest about the Democrats running the Board of Education for years as a simple look at the voting record will reveal that a CLEAR majority of decisions made by the board involved the MAJORITY of Republicans and two Democrats which combined really ruled things on the BOE. The remaining Democrats on the board were actually in the minority and for years openly complained about the two Democrats who conspired with the Republicans to control the board.

Again, this entire episode is rather complex and will take a bit of time to fully explain but I'll break things down for everyone in a future post (which will include video) REAL SOON.

Boughton has no time to debate Taborsak because...


Time: 5:06 PM



...he's more interested in checking out the seven foot provolone at Stew Leonards today!
A 7-foot long, handcrafted "Il Giardino Provolone Gigante" will arrive at Stew Leonard's at 99 Federal Road on Wednesday.
The arrival of the big cheese in the store's deli is in conjunction with a 25th anniversary celebration Wednesday at 5 p.m. Stew Leonard Jr. will speak, as well as Mayor Mark Boughton, who will be there with a proclamation naming Oct. 5 "Stew Leonard's Day." There will be free refreshments.

I guess we all have our priorities...and in Boughton's case it includes making any phoney excuse to avoid debating someone who can really call him out on his 10 years of dishonesty and misleading the public.

Boughton said what?!?

Tuesday, October 04, 2011
Time: 5:23 PM



It's official, Mark Boughton is a dishonest, two-faced moron.
In an interview with Mayor Mark Boughton regarding space issues, Boughton said, “Look at Morris Street School, look at their test scores. It begs the question, why do you need a new school if they are scoring higher than the magnet school? It's heartwarming to see the good work they are doing. They got it down.”


So in other words, although schools like Morris and Shelter Rock are suffering from exterme overcrowding to a point where classes are being taught in closets and art programs are taught from a cart, in Boughton's world, when it comes to educaiuton under his watch all is okay because the school officials are finding insane ways to cope with the lack of support they've received from this joke of a mayor.

...and lets not forget that this remark comes from the same person who ran to the gullible Christine Rose at the Danbury Patch to brag about a so-called "purchase" of a building to ease overcrowding in schools (which is nothing more than a campaign gimmick to counter the criticism Boughton received on his god-awful education record from Lynn Taborsak).

As a parent, ten years of this dishonest nonsense from this clown is enough!

No love for Boughton at Wooster Heights

Monday, October 03, 2011
Time: 10:36 AM



Seems like someone isn't a fan of Danbury's last honest man.

As the dishonest one avoids debating Lynn Taborsak and one places his over-the-top campaign signs around town, one resident decided to make a statement and leave Boughton a message on his sign on the corner of Wooster Hights and W. Wooster Street.











...I guess that 10 years of Boughton's "People Over Politics" nonsense is really resonating with everyone.

DHS principal notifies parents about school fights on FRIDAY EVENING?!?


Time: 8:30 AM

Talk about a Friday evening dump...this email prepared by officials at Danbury High School was sent to members of the board of education last Friday at 3:30.

We are sending the following message out (in real people voices - Portuguese, Spanish and English) at 6:30 tonight.

Good evening parents, guardians, and students. This is Mr. Bocaccio, principal of Danbury High School. I’d like to take this opportunity to communicate with everyone. On Wednesday, before school there was an altercation involving 10 students. This situation was quickly attended to and all students involved were appropriately disciplined. The remainder of the day, with the exception of the persisting rumors, proceeded as usual. Today was a very normal day at school. I am very proud of our student body, almost 3,000 strong, where students come together to work and study on a daily basis. I want to thank our parents for their concern and support. I wish everyone a pleasant weekend, and I look forward to seeing our students on Monday morning.

I don't know about you but sending this message on a Friday evening is a tad bit insulting to parents who should had been notified about the incident at the high school at the same time school officials reached out to the community leaders such as Rev Pitts and the Hispanic Center for assistance...which was on WEDNESDAY.

Sending a message to parents two days after the fact and claiming that on Wednesday "the remainder of the day, with the exception of the persisting rumors, proceeded as usual" when community leaders at the Hispanic Center not only chased down Dominican students who feared that there would be more altercations between themselves and African-American students...
Alvarez-Dimarzo said that when word of the brawl got back to her, she got into her car to look for some of the students she had come to know in her time with the Hispanic Center.

She said that many of them had donned "Dominican Pride" T-shirts after school let out, making them easily identifiable.

"I talked to some of these kids yesterday. They're not looking to fight because someone's black," she said Thursday. "They're afraid of getting beaten up and they're angry."

...put also posted the following message on Facebook later on Wednesday calling for calm.
This post goes out to my Danbury High School youth! I want to talk to you, but more than talk I need you to listen to what I will ask of you. To the members of Trinidad I will say Dominicana Soy! But I will not excuse nor tolerate the use of ethnic pride for violence. I recognize your need for acknowledgement and respect. I am saddened by the incidents at DHS today. I've had the opportunity to meet with some of you this afternoon. Thank you for listening and thank you for taking the shirts off. For those that I haven't seen today-hear me out. Trinidad you have an open invitation to see me, talk to me and meet with me. I'm putting the ball in your court. My doors are open for conflict resolution. Use me as your vehicle. Allow me to hear and better understand what you are going through. No reprimands no accusations. But I need you to put weapons down-I need you to not use violence and gang intimidation tactics. Allow me to help you resolve this conflict. I will hear and not judge your side of the story. But I will ask of you this-no violence-call the fight off-do not allow one more friend to get hurt. To all other friends, please if you have access to DHS student community at home, in the community or any place else or even if you don't let's lead by example. Please share this post and help me reach every DHS student today.
Peace.

In short, DHS interim principal Bocaccio's message was two days too late as parents could had worked in conjunction with Rev. Pitts and the Hispanic Center and played a significant role in assisting in calming the situation down.

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.
