REPOST: A primer on the Democratic candidate for State Senate in the 24th district

Thursday, November 03, 2016
Time: 12:54 PM

I'm putting the finishing touches on my breakdown on State Senate candidate Ken Gucker and why I believe that he was probably the worse choice for candidate of State Senate in the 24th district in recent memory.

As someone who has known this local gadfly and his antics for nearly ten years, I'll provide a inside look at the self-described "activist" and explain how when it comes to the REAL history of this particular individual, lets just say that the devil is in the details and I'll be skipping the State Senate potion of my ballot on Election Day.

In short...VOTERS BEWARE...although McLachlan is God-Awful, Gucker is not any better...in fact, in many ways, he's worse...MUCH worse. As a preview of things to come, here's a re-post I did on the soon to be least-qualified/losing candidate for Danbury's only State Senate seat.

With weeks until Election Day, people have been wondering when will I start writing on the various races in the area.

You won't have to wait much longer!

In a preview of my series of upcoming posts on the race for State Senate in the 24th district, here's my latest TV appearance where I gave briefly described my thoughts on the campaign of the self-described "community-activist" Ken Gucker...

Trust me, you should stay tuned for the details on the race for State Senate in the 24th district as well as my take on all the races for State Rep in Greater Danbury...lets just say that I won't be holding back...

More to come very soon.

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.
