2. Did I miss the memo about a primary happening in Danbury?
To make a long story short, over the last sixteen years, this site has gone through several major transformaitons and many of the free file servers used to store video and audio content at that time have long vanished. Meanwhile, it's become difficult for readers to find my old video footage of past debates over the years, which deprives the public from hearing about pasrt issues of concern in the city.
Fortunately, I archived most of my video and audio material over the years...unfortunately, retrieving old content among thousands of DVDs over a sixteen year period is a LONG and VERY painful process.
In order to make retrieving old content easier, I'm in the process of updating the "election section" area with links to all of my political content form 2005-present day. As in previous elections, I also plan to provide coverage of upcoming debate/forum schedule as well as provide the public with any material from the candidates.As a bonus, I'm in the process of retrieving articles on the campaigns during each period as they appeared in the newspaper; for example, here's the Newstimes profile on then Democratic mayoral candidate Dean Esposito as it appeared in the paper back in late October 2005; the article details the personal sacrifices Esposito's endured in accepting the Democratic nominaiton from a party that was desperately attempting to rebound from it's historic 2003 loss and fall from political relevance that has plagued the Danbury Democratic establishment to this day
Come back to HatCityBLOG often as the site gets updated and ready for the end of the campaign season!

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.
