Short Stories from the Insider: Enough is Enough

Short Stories from the Insider: Enough is Enough

Enough is enough. Mayor Dan Drew insinuating that he has no knowledge of this recent flyer attacking Council candidate and former Mayor Seb Giuliano is a crock. If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you. (Portland Bridge with new lights)

Dan Drew held a fund raiser for the Working Families party (as contrasted with his own reelection committee) and the proceeds of which paid for this mailer. To claim no knowledge ,let alone no direct involvement with it just insults everyone’s intelligence.

Everyone knows that this is Phil Pessina in conjunction with the democrats have a goal in mind. Now you can see why the Republicans did not nominate Phil for reelection. Now Phil is being used and played by the democrats (along with the Working Family party) to do their dirty work? Phil on strings, not to smart, do you think?  It’s very hard to believe that the Working Families party had the funds to disperse the flyer. People, this is how the democrats work with money, dishonestly.

Another thing Mayor Dan Drew continues to say he works in a bipartisan manner as quoted on the Middletown Patch November 1st 2013: "We've spent the last two years fixing problems and we have a vision for the city that we hope to move forward in a unified, bipartisan fashion."

WHAT BYPARISAN FASHION! He has an 8-4 majority on the council. The true fact is 10-2 majority with Phil and Joe. Does he really think the citizens of Middletown are stupid? If the common council had a republican majority or even split than he would have to work in a bipartisan manner to accomplish what all believe is good for Middletown. We need less spending and lower taxes and more business in town.  But with a majority he doesn’t have to work hard at all to get what he wants.

He constantly say’s the city is moving forward when in reality it’s not moving at all. Take a look around and you will notice numerous residential for sale signs all over town. People are not only leaving Middletown but the State Of Connecticut because they can no longer afford to live here. When students graduate they are relocating to other states that have jobs and fewer taxes. Let’s wake up and smell the coffee.

The democrats are destroying our town and state. They target low information voters to stay in power and the rest of us suffer. Therefore please get out and VOTE ROW A November 5TH.


  1. Honest question.

    I know that our city government wastes money. A majority of them do. They don't have to worry about costs like a business cause they choose how much of a bill is sent to you to pay. And you have to pay.

    Wouldn't it be nice for Coca-cola or Burger King to send you a bill they set every month or year for a service you have to pay for. I can tell you right now if the capitalist world worked that way why in hell would you worry about cost control?

  2. Why does it matter who is behind it? Seb did say those things, he's a loose cannon and he's running for office again so it's relevant.

    Honestly, would anyone want to have someone who throws darts like a monkey and refers to an elected body as "terrorists" governing their city?

  3. It is a political flyer from a MAYOR who is running against nobody! Strange..

  4. What gives Dan Drew the right to use the City's emergency robo call as his own personal campaign tool? Illegal

  5. cromwell, hope you are paying attention!!! If this guy calls his own town "piddle" what do you think he'd call yours if he was your town manager? But hey, he can choose your next public works director by using Bonzo or Bubbles, after all can't get worse than the last hire. Or maybe he'll hire his mom, after all don't all professional town managers believe in patronage over qualifications and experience? And when he disagrees with selectmen, hey they are terrorists! Make your first town manager a memorable one and please take sebby, piddletown doesn't want him.
