“Write In Candidate” or how a draft campaign works
But I am going to
Write in Paul Panos
for the Windsor Board of Ed
Why you ask would I write in a candidate that dropped off the ballot… because I know that he cares about the education of our children and he is willing to fight for the wiser spending of our tax dollars at the Windsor public school system…
He was initially on the ballot but he stepped down because he had surgery that was preventing him from the campaigning around the town that needed to be done.
I’m writing in Paul Panos for Board of Ed
because I think that if enough of us do write him in,
now that he’s feeling better and able to get around that
he will agree to serve for another term!
Help me test my theory and
Write in Paul Panos for Board of Ed on Nov 7th 2017!
The HartBeat Ensemble – A Community Art Project Worthy of Public Support
Our youth need creative outlets to keep them off of the streets which hold many opportunities for danger and trouble. The HartBeat Ensemble is just one of several Community Art Groups that offer the youth of our cities and towns an alternative to just “hanging out”. Most of these community groups are Non-Profits with little funding but lots of potential and dedicated volunteers.
Celebrate our youth and the arts by getting involved in any one of the many Community Groups – over the coming months we will showcasing some of the works and youth that are working in the Hartford area.
You do not always have to give money to show support, your TIME or Skills for many of these groups is actually more valuable. Reach out and support the men and women who are working with our youth to find out how you can be a supportive assistant to find out what their needs are.
Can the Right and the Left build bridges and coalitions to be able to make the state and maybe the country a better place?
Can we find common ground to start from to solve some of the problems we face?
Map of CT Divided into 5 Congressional Districts
Can Conservatives, Republicans, Unaffiliated, Independents, Democrats & Liberals find the common ground & work together to solve the many problems in our state and country is a question that I’ve been mulling around since last week when 2 democrats showed up at a conservative meeting in late Feb that was accidently posted publicly comparing it to the town hall meetings where the “Indivisible” group members were in a “Lovefest” with the democrats vs the Bullying that was done at the republican town hall meetings….
I have friends and family that are democrats as well as republican, libertarian and unaffiliated like most of us do and when it’s a one on one discussion even if we do not agree 100% on the issues we can talk civilly and agree to disagree on some items all of the people I know agree that the destruction of property that is being shown is just plain wrong.
One thing that I have noticed is that my right leaning friends know more about many of the issues but my left leaning ones do not. In fact it seems that my left leaning friends are surprised to hear about some of the issues because they’ve not been told about the items which are the problems because the media many times do not cover an issue in full or at all…
Many times the issues that the right side groups have are not spoken about in the media or if they are the media has such a warped coverage that it’s more “propaganda” than actual news coverage…
While the leaders of the right have no real outreach into the public their message and information is not getting out to the public but the leaders of these left-wing groups have the megaphones of the liberal left-wing media newspapers, television news and radio.
One question is why is only the left-wing given the ear of the public that the right just does not have? Where can people go to get educated on both sides of the issues?
How can people work together when the proper information is not put in front of them so that Informed Decisions can be made by the public? When people have both sides of an issue we can talk about what the problems are and how we can solve the problems.
What are your thoughts about what can be done to correct this problem? Leave your thoughts below in the comments.
Other important questions you should ask yourself is “Who Benefits from an Misinformed or Under-Informed Public?” and “Why are the media going along with this?”.
