Last night, Democratic delegates representing the 109th District endorsed David Arconti to run for the State Rep. seat being vacated by Joe Taborsak.

Earlier today, Arconti issued a press release which included a transcript of his nomination acceptance speech:
Thank you Mr. Chairman, thank you to my friends and family here, and most importantly thank you delegates of the 109th district for choosing me as your nominee. I am proud and honored to accept your nomination as the Democratic candidate for State Representative from the 109th district. I would also like to especially thank Representative Joe Taborsak. Jay has been a great State Representative for our district as he has secured millions of dollars for Danbury from the State over his tenure. I look forward to picking up where Jay left off. I am honored and humbled that you have trusted me with that responsibility.

As many of you know, I come from a long line of successful public servants. I am excited to carry on my family’s tradition of serving our community. For those of you who may not know, I am a native Danburian, attended Danbury Public Schools and have a Public Health degree from Southern Connecticut State University. During my term, I look forward to advocating for increased access to affordable preventive healthcare, sponsoring efforts to bring more jobs to our city, and working with the State to make sure Danbury receives its fair share in education funding for our children.

I can’t express how excited I am about this campaign and introducing myself to the residents of the 109th district. This race is going to be a lot of hard work and I will need everyone in this room to help in any way that is possible. But I know that with your support, we can and will win in November and keep this seat “blue” in the Democratic column for the next two years maintaining the outstanding tradition of quality service to the people of this district and all of Danbury.

Thank you.

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.
