It is very exciting to
announce the first slate of candidates to be endorsed by the Tea Party Caucus
of the CT GOP Town Committees. The TPC
is a state-wide coalition of Republican Town Committee members dedicated to
nominating and electing Conservative candidates who are committed to upholding
the Constitution of the United States
and the Constitution of the State of Connecticut
and to a smaller, less intrusive and fiscally responsible government.
By majority vote, we, the
members of the Tea Party Caucus of the CT GOP Town Committees hereby endorse
the following candidates:
For Treasurer – Bob Eick
Bob’s decades of experience
in capital investment and business management is what is needed in Connecticut, today. He has a proven track record of private
sector success that can we can “capitalize” on.
Bob will put our fiscal house in order, assuring the soundness of our
pension and other investments.
For Attorney General – Kie
Former Marine and Wesleyan University grad, Kie stands for repeal
of the State income tax and abandoning Common Core, leaving education decisions
in the hands of local school districts and the voters. He pledges to use the Constitution as “an
operations manual” and to support the Bill of Rights.
For Secretary of the State –
Peter escaped Communist Albania
along with three of his brothers. His
parents and seven other siblings were not so lucky and suffered greatly at the
hands of the communist government.
Having actually seen and endured political persecution that actually
cost lives gives Peter a unique perspective.
He will diligently protect the integrity of the election process and
uphold and defend our Constitutions.
For Lieutenant Governor –
Penny’s years of service as
Representative to Stafford Springs give her the knowledge and experience needed
to be an effective liaison between the Governor’s office and the
legislature. She will stand up against
high taxes, job-killing over regulation, and federal control over education
while working to create a business friendly environment that is conducive to
job growth and preserving our civil rights.
For Governor – Martha Dean
A nationally known, highly
successful and well respected attorney, Martha will reign in an out of control
and over reaching state government that is apathetic to the needs and plight of
our Citizens, including Justina Pelletier.
She has worked in business and constitutional law, is an advocate for
preserving the environment and wants to overhaul the family law system (that is
currently failing our state’s families) and to preserve the civil rights of all
residents. Martha will get our fiscal
house in order, work to reduce business crippling regulation, repair and
modernize our state transportation system and assure local control over our
All of these candidates
recognize the connection between the Right of every Citizen to keep and bear
arms in defense of themselves and the State and a free and open society where liberty
is preserved for all. Without the Second
Amendment to the US Constitution and Article 1, Section 15 of the Connecticut
Constitution, all other civil rights are in jeopardy of falling to the whims or
tyranny of the powerful. This slate of
candidates will assure that future generations have the Right and opportunity
to defend themselves, their families and the State.
This team represents Connecticut’s best hope
for reversing decades of legislative and administrative mismanagement. Their goals and values are similar, enabling
them to work in harmony toward creating a prosperous, well educated, free and
safe state where all Citizens can enjoy the blessings of Liberty.
Addendum to the Press Release of May 6:ReplyDelete
Martha Dean's surprise withdrawal from the gubernatorial race on Friday caused the Tea Party Caucus of the CT GOP Town Committees to reconvene for an "emergency" vote, in order to select another candidate for endorsement.
As a result of that vote, held Saturday, Joe Visconti has the endorsement of the Tea Party Caucus. Joe's broad appeal to Caucus members stems from a combination of his unwavering support of the civil rights of individuals, (in particular the right of all citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the state), his background as a blue collar construction worker, his dedication to creating a business friendly environment and his commitment to keeping education in the hands of parents and local school boards by opposing Common Core.
