Why are there UnContested Races in CT?

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

It is true there are too many UnContested Races in CT’s General Assembly this year & in years past & if things do not change this will be the future as well…

The July 21st article in the Hartford Courant  http://www.courant.com/opinion/op-ed/hc-ed-too-many-ct-seats-uncontested-0721-20160720-story.html

points out that “due to apathy” & “lack of leadership” seats are going uncontested during a year when there should be not only full ballots but also high voter turnout since it is a presidential election year

Copied & pasted from the article 
What a shame, then, that more than 25 percent of the House seats will go unchallenged by a major-party candidate, along with four seats in the Senate.

& also this from the article
” 16 Democrats will run unopposed by a Republican, nearly all of them incumbents, according to preliminary information from the secretary of the state’s office. “

Shame on the local party leadership for not running full tickets; 
but also shame on the cities & towns people that have not stepped up to run for office.

“We the People” means that each citizen has a responsibility to take some small part in running the country;
That means not just showing up once every couple of years to vote a party line without knowing what the issues are but attending town & even state level meetings at the town halls & state capitol.

What are You going to do to change the “defeatist” attitude that is running rampant in our state?

What are You going to do to help #FlipTheGeneralAssembly ?

Fox News + Google present the 7th Republican Debate

I posted this originally back in january  when the field was “huge” on the Republican side… I’ve got a few questions as I reread the post 9 months later…

Now that the conventions are over & there are only 2 major ticket candidates on all 50+ ballots with 2 minor party candidates attempting to get that access & the attention of the media; I am wondering will the 3rd party candidates be given a spot on the stage?

How much participation we will see from the public & social media networks in these very important debates coming up? Will you be sending in questions by video or tweets or facebook if offered the opportunity? Will you be watching at either a Debate Watching Party or will you be watching from home or will you not bother watching?

Will we see a repeat of the biased debates where the moderators will be attacking Donald Trump while giving Hillary soft ball questions or will we see a debate where actual policy questions are asked?

What are your thoughts? Leave your comments & questions that you have below

The #GOPDebate small stage starts at 7p.
Then the main big stage debate will start at 9p.

The main stage will be missing Donald Trump; who will be holding his own event to benefit veterans on CNN.

It is reported that both Rick Santorum & Mike Huckabee will attend Donald’s event after they finish their small stage debate.
