State Libraries Cutting Hours

Raymond Withers-Tong, a law clerk, at the law library
at Superior Court in New Britain, where the hours are
being reduced due to budget issues.


Deirdre McPadden, director of judge support services, said the financial crisis, combined with the retirement of two law librarians, resulted in this decision.

The latest budget season hit the court system hard, with the state Judicial Branch having to deal with a $77 million reduction in the budget for the 2016-17 fiscal year.

According to McPadden, for the law libraries, officials have not been able to fill positions or replace people who have retired.

There are 12 law libraries located in state courthouses, and now, more than half will be operating on a reduced schedule.

Starting Oct. 1, seven of the 12 libraries will be open four days each week.

"At this point, it is indefinite and until further notice," McPadden said. "Given ongoing staffing shortages and recent retirements, we have determined that it is necessary to further curtail the hours of operation in the Judicial Branch law libraries. This decision was made with great reluctance, after a careful and thoughtful assessment of library operations statewide."

George Washington Leadership Foundation Adds Two Important Leaders 

Alexandria, Virginia - September, 13, 2016- The George Washington Leadership Foundation (GWLF), a Political Action Committee dedicated to recruiting, training and electing Republican veterans to state and federal government office, is proud to announce the addition of two prominent political and military experts to our advisory board. We are honored that General Michael Flynn and Edward Rollins have joined GWLF. These leaders will not only add tremendous insight and advice, but their association with GWLF speaks volumes about the principles that GWLF promotes.

“The United States is better off when those governing were willing to put their life on the line to defend the laws they seek to pass” -Carl Higbie (Founder)

General Mike Flynn is a decorated veteran and retired United States Army lieutenant general. General Flynn also served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, and chair of the Military Intelligence Board.

Ed Rollins was assistant to the President during Ronald Reagan’s first and second term and is a highly sought after Republican strategist and campaign consultant. Mr. Rollins has worked on numerous high profile elections including as the campaign manager for President Ronald Reagan’s 49 state landslide victory in 1984.

“The role of American veterans who have served in Congress is outstanding. Many are natural leaders trained in a discipline unlike their fellow citizens and enduring experiences unique in this changing world. It is imperative that we encourage, the men and women who have served their country, to continue to serve by running for political office. It is imperative that we, their fellow citizens who have benefited and been protected by their service do everything we can to encourage, support and help them serve again. Their service will only make America better and more representative of the values that have endured throughout our history!”   -Edward J Rollins

“If Joe Courtney has any integrity he’ll start returning their money right now”, says Daria Novak, Republican Candidate for Congress in Connecticut’s Second Congressional District.

Madison, Connecticut  – “There is a Federal probe underway, two people have already been named in ‘pay for play’ and the Democrat Party in Connecticut is under a Federal Grand Jury Investigation”, stated Daria Novak, the Republican nominee for Congress in Connecticut’s second congressional district. ”Joe Courtney needs to come clean, declare and return any money he’s ever taken from the Connecticut Democrat Party and not allow them to spend any money in this district.”

Novak, who is gaining momentum and running even or ahead of incumbent Democrat Joe Courtney in polls, is determined to end the culture of corruption that shadows politics in Connecticut and Washington.

“In Congress I’m not going to be sitting down on the job like Joe Courtney, or taking play for pay deals to fill political or personal coffers.”, continued Novak. “The people of Connecticut’s second congressional district deserve better from all of us. C’mon Joe…denounce that corruption and let’s make this election about issues. I’ll meet you face to face as often as you dare, all over the district. Let’s earn votes, not buy them.”

NumbersUSA - McDonalds hires H1B guest workers; fires 70 Americans in Ohio

Media
Response
Author Photo
Confidential: Do Not Forward

Guest worker programs not just a tech issue

Please read, share, and discuss "McDonalds Hires Foreign H-1Bs, Fires 70 American Accounting Staff" by Neil Munro, the reporter who three years ago challenged a panel of journalists to pay more attention to the issue.
Some details about the lost jobs in Ohio:
"...the 70 Ohio jobs that McDonalds outsourced to lower wage foreign graduates are not Silicon Valley technology and software jobs - they're white-collar accounting jobs performed by graduates from mainstream business schools...

"...The outsourcing in Columbus, Ohio, was explained as a cost saving effort by a McDonald's spokeswoman....

"...The {contracting} company is a spinoff from General Electric, and its biggest owner is Bain Capital...

"...The outsourcing deal was revealed when McDonalds sought federal taxpayers' funds to compensate the 70 fired Americans."
Munro reports that "the foreign population of white-collar temporary workers, dubbed 'guest-workers,' now exceeds 800,000, including roughly 650,000 H-1B workers on multi-year visas."
These visas are not limited to the tech and IT fields:
