How Are Our Public Officials Doing?

My opinion of our public officials

In the past two or three weeks I have been doing research on almost all of our public officials. I have checked into their voting record, attendence, and other minor details to see how I would rate them. I then decided to rate each official on my opinion of their performance. Therefore, these numbers are my approval ratings of each official. I stress that this is my opinion. 

United States Senator Richard Blumenthal- 95%

Governor Malloy-85%

President Obama- 85%

Representative Delauro- 80%

Mayor Maturo- 80-85%

Senator Fasano/Representative Albis- 75-80%

United States Senator Lieberman- 60%


For the few that have a range of numbers that means I was unable to come up with an exact number due to lack of information or an erray of other reasons.

If anyone has any questions regarding any of the reasons I gave certain people a certain percentage, please ask and I will glady give my reasoning for that.

Anne, If you are refering to the item Patrick created I have nothing but respect for Patrick and thought that he might want to follow up on this as he did list Representative Albis in it I thought he might be kind enough to take a look at the different elected positions here in town such as Board of Finance,Board Of Education and The Town Council. I would be interested to see his views on these elected officals. If you are refering to my becoming an elected official I thank you for asking and as of last night I threw my name into the mix as a candidate for Town Council to represent the residents living in East Haven's Third District. I welcome any thoughts you may have and look forward to many positive discussions that will produce results for the residents of East Haven.

Why is it on another posting it was reported you were not at the meeting of the DTC? And again, would you be asking the same questions of a domcratic controlled town council as you did above in referring to this current TC? Would you, I doubt it.

I will admit that I have very little interest in the Town Council and for that reason, I will not do one on the Town Council. I will leave that up to someone who has more interest in that subject matter. I am quite surprised no one commented on the fact that I did this in a bipartisan way and rated Democrats and Republicans as though they did not have a party.

Patrick, I noticed that your rating survey of politicians was indeed not biased toward any party affiliation. It is refreshing to read something done in such a manner. My only concern is how criteria for each rating is quantified to reach these conclusions. However they were reached, you should be applauded for your efforts. You certainly have a bright future ahead, one which many may benefit from.
