(Sorry for the long delay; no, I haven't moved all of my content to Facebook or abandoned the web verison of HatCitBLOG. Things will be back to speed here soon as I give this page an update).
Here's the long-form verion of Tuesday's results.
Word of caution for new readers: this report is different than the traditional returns in news reports. the primary purpose of the long-form returns is to provide a VERY VERY detailed breakdown of the results in each of the city's seven wards.
At first, understanding the report can be a bit overwhelming (it's over 100 pages), but once you get the hang of reading the report, you'll appreciate the attention to detail. Please free to leave a comment if you have a problem understanding the report.
I'll give an analysis of the data and the election later as this data takes a LONG while to export and do a cross-compare analysis to the return data of previous races, which are also over 100 pages (you get the idea of the amount of work ahead).
04.25.22 (RADIO): WSHU Latino group call on Connecticut lawmakers to open a Danbury charter school
06.03.22 (OP-ED): KUSHNER: "Career Academy ‘a great deal for 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.
