CT 05: NY Congresswoman Maloney endorses Dan Roberti

Monday, June 11, 2012
Time: 6:52 PM

UPDATE 6:00 PM Now that my videos from the presser are uploaded, here's my write-up on Roberti's event in Danbury.

Today, Dan Roberti paid a visit to my neck of the woods to talk about his plan for job creation as well as receive the endorsement of New York Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney at The Bridge to Independence and Career Opportunities (TBICO), an organization that focuses on job training and employment transition for women in Greater Danbury.

PRESS RELEASE:

Dan Roberti, Democratic primary candidate for Congress in Connecticut’s 5th District, today was endorsed by U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York City’s 14th District. Mr. Roberti and Congresswoman Maloney toured TBICO, located at 22 Eagle Road, Danbury, a non-profit career center where women are provided with free job training to enter the workforce or transition into new careers.

“I am proud to endorse Dan Roberti in the race for Connecticut's Democratic 5th Congressional District nomination,” Congresswoman Maloney said. “Dan has proven himself to be a champion for women’s issues, ranging from job training to health care coverage. He is determined to work through partisan gridlock on Capitol Hill in support of common sense job creation efforts in order to continue to strengthen our economic recovery.”

Mr. Roberti said he was proud to accept the support of Congresswoman Maloney. “Her dedication to fighting to help people across a broad array of issues will be a model for me when I get to Washington. I look forward to working with her and representing the people of the 5th District,” Mr. Roberti said.

Congresswoman Maloney represents Manhattan’s East Side and western Queens and is a senior member of both the House Financial Services Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. She received national attention when she asked, “Where are the women?” regarding the makeup of a panel testifying before the Oversight and Government Reform Committee on religious groups’ concerns over a federal rule requiring insurance coverage of contraception. Rep. Maloney questioned why no women were on the panel – which consisted of five male clergy and educators – and why a female Georgetown law student had been barred as a witness.

Congresswoman Maloney announced her endorsement of Mr. Roberti following a tour of TBICO, The Bridge to Independence and Career Opportunities. Rep. Maloney and Mr. Roberti observed the training programs offered to women re-entering the workforce or entering it for the first time. The non-profit organization has served the Danbury area since 1993. It works with human resource professionals and other decision makers in the upper Fairfield County and lower Litchfield County areas to pinpoint job opportunities.

From earlier today, here's video of Roberti's presser in Danbury.

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.
