Danbury Democrats nominate candidate for third ward council seat...who does not live in the third ward

The gross incompetence of the Democratic Town Committee's leadership strikes...AGAIN.

Last Monday, former mayor and disgraced town committee chairman Gene Eriquez continued his on-going con job on the public when he announced his "full slate" of qualified candidates for the upcoming municipal election. Unfortunately, like most of the Eriquez's statements during his term as party chair, his claim that his slate is "full" and qualified is a bit of a stretch.

Since there are SOOOOOO many questions regarding Eriquez's "full slate" of candidates, I'll take on the easiest example of the chairman's questionable judgment first and save the rest for future posts.

Last week, Danbury Democrats nominated political novice Jessica Ellul (pictured to the right) to run for the position of City Council in the Third Ward.

There's one simple problem which any chairperson prior to Eriquez would had caught in a nanosecond...Eriquez's choicefor the city council's seat in the third ward DOES NOT LIVE IN THE THIRD WARD.

According to the Certification of Party Endorsement form submitted to City Hall, Ellul listed her address as 84 Great Plains Road...

According to the City of Danbury Street listings record, available online at the City of Danbury Registrar of Voters website, 84 Great Plains Road is located in the second ward.

Pictured below to the left is Ellul location at 84 Great Plains Road (to the right) and the City of Danbury's street listing/ward locator map (to the left). The red line in the image to the right is the border between ward two (left) and ward three (right).

Ellul's house is located to the left of Great Plains Road...which is in ward two.

The fact that Ellul is not qualified to run for office in the third ward is not her fault but the fault of the party chairman Eriquez, vice chairman Ken Gucker, and members of the committee who were in charge of the vetting process.

A simple address verification procedure (which was common practice among DTC chairperson in prior election cycles) would had picked up the discrepancy in a matter of seconds...but again, this is the "new and improved" town committee whose leadership would have you believe that the sun is shining in the middle of the night.

More later...

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.
