Windsor Please Write in Paul Panos on 1-7-17

I’m not certain of the process to officially be a 

“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!

 
We Need a CHANGE in WINDSOR!
Tell ALL your family and friends to 
Write in Paul Panos for Board of Ed

Please Share

 
Below is a campaign video from 2016
when he ran for State Rep in the 5th District…

SUSPECT ARRESTED IN FRONT STREET SHOOTOUT – Commentary

Another Hartford young man arrested for illegally possessing a gun after a shooting.

I have some questions and comments as a result of Kevin’s May 7th article. What I do love about We the People Hartford site is that regardless of what side of an issue Kevin does make you think about what is happening around us.

Unlike the “so called professional journalists”, he both listens to the public that are giving tips or their own commentary. Kevin also discusses his findings with those who are commenting.

That’s one thing that is great about Citizen Journalism, the majority of them are down to earth people and more than willing to talk to and with their readers.

Another great thing about Citizen Journalists is that many of them tend to have the breaking news that the “professionals” won’t bother to look into or cover for various reasons.

That being said I disagree with the title of the article in that a “Shoot Out” requires at least 2 people shooting, but there was only one person illegally armed and shooting at a defenseless car and an unarmed woman the way that Kevin’s article reads. So the title should have been “Suspect Arrested for Front Street Shooting”.

Thankfully the young woman who was the target of this young man’s anger was not another fatality for the crime stats of Hartford. I do wonder whose house was this gun found at? Was that person the Legal Owner of that gun or was that person also in possession of a gun illegally?

I am for people having the choice to exercise their right to self-defense and protecting their family from harm but it’s angry young men like this that create problems for LEGALLY Trained, Permitted & Armed people.

Why did he decide that it was ok to try to shoot (only 7 of 12 shots hit that huge target?) a car because he was angry with the driver?

What does that say about our society and community; where a person can grow up thinking that it is ok to escalate a verbal argument into threatening a life and destruction of property?

How much worse is it going to get with so many police officers retiring in Hartford? Will there be an increase in the gang-related shootings and crimes in our cities?

This young man was wrong in what he did; but was he carrying the illegal gun because he was unable to afford to get a gun legally? I do not know anything about this young man so I do not know;  would he have been able (prior to this incident) to attempt to get the training that is part of the requirements to obtain a pistol permit?

What can be done to make our cities safer for the citizens that live there? Our police and fire departments are understaffed with more about to retire. Will more citizens be arming themselves illegally because the powers that be have made the basic human right to self-defense out of reach for the poor, blacks and minorities in our state?

How is the pending Bankruptcy going to affect the police and firemen and public safety for the people in Hartford?

Those are just a few of the questions and thoughts that Kevin’s article and the public comments have sparked for me…

What are your thoughts and questions?

Full article and community commentary can be found on We the People Hartford news site Kevin Brookman Editor & Lead Investigative Reporter


Hartford Police officers were dispatched to 24 Front Street this morning on the report of shots fired.

Upon HPD’s arrival, officers located a 2010 Ford Fusion with multiple bullet holes in it parked at the entrance to the Front Street parking garage. The victim detailed to officers that she had been involved in an argument with here “friends” boyfriend. The boyfriend removed a firearm from his waistband and fired 12 rounds at her vehicle. He apparently needs to spend more time at the range,  since only 7 of the 12 rounds actually struck the vehicle.

Based upon the victims information , the suspect was identified and HPD contacted him. The suspect and his girlfriend agreed to return to the scene where HPD conducted a felony motor vehicle stop and the suspect was placed under arrest.

The suspect, identified as Austin Treadwell, 28, of 20 Front Street, Apt 318 was arrested and charged with numerous charges, including carrying a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of a firearm, Reckless endangerment 1st degree, Weapons in a Motor vehicle, Criminal Possession of a high capacity magazine, Criminal Mischief 1st Degree.

Treadwell had apparently disposed of the weapon, a 40 caliber pistol in East Hartford before returning to the scene. The weapon was recovered through the efforts of HPD.

This warning has been given out back in November by me but this warning post from Kevin Brookman is worthy of a share because he actually has the press release in the article that he posted; in addition to his always worthy of a read even if you do not agree with him commentary.

There were 2 Reader comments plus his own reply that should get people asking some questions about our water bills….

Who are the people that are connected to the reasons why our water bills are going up higher than ever while their corporate buddies are getting a sweetheart deal at our expense….

Head on over to We the People Hartford by clicking the “Go to Source” link below & join in on the conversations…. –

MDC WARNS OF SUSPECTED IMPOSTERS
November 30, 2016
For Immediate Release
HARTFORD  The Metropolitan District Commission (MDC) is advising customers to be cautious of an individual posing as a water company employee in an attempt to enter residential homes.
On Tuesday, November 29, a male suspect claiming to be from the water company attempted to gain access to several Hartford apartments in the vicinity of James Street, telling the residents there was a problem with their water bill. No further details are available at this time.
The MDC urges all residents, especially those who are home during the day, to be alert for imposters by following these tips:
  • MDC field employees wear clothing and drive vehicles clearly marked with the MDC logo.
  • The MDC encourages customers to stay secure within the home while asking for identification from anyone who comes to their door.  All MDC employees have photo identification badges and will gladly display them upon request.  The policy is “No Identification – No Entry” .
  • If someone comes to your door claiming to be from the water company and you do not have a previously scheduled appointmentdo not allow access to your home until calling the MDC Command Center at 860-278-7850 ext 3600 to verify their identity.
  • If you have any doubt about the individual’s identity or motives, or authenticity of their credentials, do not allow them entry into your home and call the police.
 
Maybe the next step should be to distribute a flyer of MDC Chairman Bill diBella and the MDC Commissioners to our suburban neighbors. The MDC’s plan to shove Hartford’s debt off onto member towns will cost residents more than any imposters ever could.
