This has been a very Hot & Trying Summer Season for All of Us.
While I’ve been out door knocking I’ve been thanked for running, wished good luck & only experienced 2 rude people.
I am enjoying getting to meet people in the district & as I’m out door knocking & collecting signatures.
I’m running into some people who I’ve not seen in a long time since our children are grown.
The down side of being out campaigning so far has been the weather – this heat is crazy to be out walking in.
I was also a magnet for those small yellow & black striped bees. I was stung at the concert on the green in Windsor last night. I was going to try to ignore it but even with ice it was swelling so I had to go limping off the town green needing assistance to carry my chairs & little cooler back to the car.
So today I won’t be out walking around I’m feeling a little better but my knee still hurts as I’m walking this morning getting ready for the day, most of the swelling has gone down but it’s still red & sore.
This weekend I will start typing up some of the discussions & questions that I’ve been asked by people that I’ve been meeting. I may possibly do a video response to a couple of them if I’m able to get the problem with the mic figured out.
Have a Beautiful Day (0;}
Hello Friends & Family both Near & Far;
Have you #HadEnough yet?
I need your assistance to help STOP #MalloysMess with your word of mouth spreading the news about this new invasion into our families wallets!
My campaign is small compared to the goliath of the democrat machine that my opponent Eric Coleman has both in manpower & cash available to spend.
But we must not quit just because the odds are great & the fight is rough – I’m not a quitter & neither are you!
We must All do our part working together to Fight the Good Fight. Tooth & Nail, Leaving It All On the Battlefield,
Gov. Malloy has thrown his support behind the Mileage Tax.
This is a perfect opportunity for those of you who are writers to send letters to the editor and social media posts & memes stating that you oppose the enactment of this tax. We must educate our friends & neighbors & coworkers about what is going to happen to us
This not only is a new tax but also is an example of government being able to monitor its residents every move via the gps recording your every trip to the store, classes for your children & your friends & family around the state & country.
We MUST Defeat the democrats this November otherwise this tax WILL Go In Place!
As you drive around the rest of this week I challenge you to think about how much It Will Cost You once this new tax is put into place. Every trip to & from work, to the store for food or parts for the DIY project or trips to pick up the children to & from games & practices, to church …
EVERY TRIP Taxed by the Mile… Dannel & the Democrats will know where you’ve gone the route you took to get there & that is in addition to the nation’s 3rd highest gas tax in the nation!!!
We are losing our freedoms daily & we MUST not sit home crumbling over dinner, we MUST Stand Up & Say NO MORE!
We MUST Vote out the #TaxingTyranny
I NEED Your Help TODAY
to Spread the Word,
to Donate what you can afford to the campaign
to Door Knock
to Call your friends & family
to Volunteer to work with the campaigns
Republicans have another way, there is the Better Plan the Senate Republicans put out regarding transportation.
Put out originally in 2015 & updated in Feb 2016
Help me to #FlipTheGeneralAssembly this November & #VoteRowB!
*** Thank you for your support ***

Haven’t posted an update in awhile because I’ve been busy.
While I’ve been busy around & about knocking doors & attending community & commission meetings & events…
The Elected Officials have been quite busy as well, working on ways to raise our taxes!
On July 1st a slew of new laws & taxes were put in place
The costs for purchasing just about everything has gone up nationwide but then on top of that the CT taxes did too!
#ThanksMalloy & thanks to the members of the majority party #DemocratsRaisingTaxesAgain our families suffer.
The Republicans offered a budget that would have cut spending but kept the services needed for our families but the democrats in the capitol wanted nothing to do with the republican budget…
When you see Eric Coleman & Brandon McGee & David Baram & Doug McCrory walking around in the 2nd District; ask them why they refused to save the public taxpayers money by reducing the amount of the CEP Funding?
Ask them why; if there is no one else running against them on the CT GOP side, did they not agree to eliminate the CEP Grant entirely?
Check out the bottom of page 8 for the amount of our taxes going to their campaigns http://www.ct.gov/seec/lib/seec/2016ga/cep_overview_2016_final.pdf
I mean really why does Eric Coleman need $95,710.00 thousand dollars to run his campaign?
Why do our state reps need $28,150.00 if they have CT GOP opposition or $8,445.00 if they have no one running against them?
Really if they are the ONLY person on the ballot they still get to party with our tax money to the tune of $8,445.00!
Yet they raise our taxes while cutting the services that are needed so they can party?
Is that fair? Hhhmm you know there are some people’s whose whole mortgage is $90k in Hartford,
yet they get to blow that money for some fun for their friends during election years???…
Think about that the next time you’re at the store buying groceries & can’t afford to buy as much as last month or last year.
Call me when you have #HadEnough
641-715-3900 ext 327977# it’s a 24-7 voicemail so call anytime
We’ll be out door knocking & collecting Petition signatures over the next few days.
If you would like to join us be certain to call & let us know where you’re at so we can arrange to swing by.
Theresa would love to meet your neighbors so she can talk about why she is running for office.
We’re coming to the end of the month & the start of the heavy election season
We need your assistance to fight the Taxing Tyrants in Hartford.
Will you help us with a donation of $20.16 or more in our fight against the #TaxingTyranny of the democrats in our capitol hill?
These career politicians are well funded & working hard to keep their positions of power over us.
We are working towards bringing some sanity to our crazy capitol hill.
The career politicians have lost touch with the reality of what they do up there on capitol hill is hurting our families every day.
Do they think we all have money trees growing in our yards?
Taxes are hurting us as we pay increased prices for everything now to start with but on top of that our elected officials have added more taxes.
Oh they love to say it’s just a little tax but it’s slashing into our family budgets a thousand little slashes everyday.
We need YOUR Help to fight the career politicians in Hartford,
Show your support for Common Sense Spending & Balancing the State Budget with your social shares & your donation today.
Help us get Theresa Tillett up to the Citizen’s Election Qualification Funding Goal of $15,000.00 so that we can go into battle fully armed.
Thank You for Your Qualifying Donations.
People are excited about this election, primaries aren’t normally high in people coming out to vote but there is a big number first time voters & conversions of parties this election so the turnouts are higher than normal…
Did you plan to vote in the Primary on April 26th & were you able to vote?
If you live in CT we have Closed Primaries so You can only vote in the Party Primary that you are REGISTERED With, many people knew that they were either UnAffiliated or Registered with a Different Party & changed to Republican during the proper time period so they could vote in the Primary on April 26th.
Some people did change but not in the proper length of time; which in CT is 90 days prior to a Primary if you are Registered with a Party to change to another party before you can vote in a primary to prevent any funny business with the voting & candidate selections at the conventions.
Sadly there were people that never voted in a primary before so they did not realize that all the years that they have been voting they were actually registered as a Democrat or as UnAffiliated or in one of the many 3rd parties that CT has so that when they showed up to vote their name was not on the book & they weren’t allowed to Vote on Tuesday April 26th.
Were you one of those people?
Were you surprised at your Voter Registration Party Affiliation when the Moderator Called the Registrar of Voters’ office or were you surprised about the rule requiring you to be Registered with the Party in order to vote in the Primary?
To win the Presidency it’s not just the Popular vote but the Electoral College Delegate Votes that are needed to put the man or woman into the highest office of the land
Below is a map showing the current votes from the Electoral College as they currently stand
The map is interactive & I’m guessing as the days go forward the map will be adjusted as new information comes in
