Cubellotti to Run for State Representative

The East Haven Republican has announced his intentions to run for the 99th District seat in the state House, which is currently occupied by Democrat James Albis.

The following is press release submitted by the Cubellotti for State Representative 2012 campaign.

On Monday, March 19, Craig Cubellotti announced to the East Haven Republican Town Committee his intention to run for the office of State Representative in the 99th Assembly District.

Mr. Cubellotti began by thanking the RTC “for giving me the opportunity to speak with you tonight.  I would like to announce that my campaign has filed the required paperwork making me an official candidate for the office of State Representative of the 99th Assembly District.”

He continued by introducing Beth Purcell as the campaign treasurer and asked committee members for whatever contributions each can give.  “Our intention is to utilize public campaign funding. To qualify we must receive donations from at least 150 registered voters residing in East Haven and reach a monetary requirement set by the state.”

Craig ended his announcement by extending an invitation to anyone who wishes to help with the campaign. “Of course there will be many volunteer opportunities so please contact anyone on the committee if you’re interested in helping out.”

For further information or to volunteer for the campaign, email Jim Midolo at Cubellotti99th@gmail.com.

Craig, my family & friends wish you the best of luck in this great endeavor you have decided to take on .... I'm sure when you are elected to represent our Town as a State Representative..... you will be East Haven's shining star. Good Luck & God Bless !!!!

Mr Hoff, all I recommended is that you go to his e-mail address which you did, but did you ask the questions? Maybe Mr. Midolo is his manager. Even if you got the information you are looking for and he excelled in his credentials, you still would not vote for him, for he is a REP.
I have begun putting the pieces together of just who young Mr Cubellotti is the first item of note is that he ran in Novembers election and although the Republican Party won Mr Cubellotti who ran for Board Of Education, on the Republican ticket won the fourth lowest amount of votes with only 3,086 votes in a losing effort in Novemebers election being a Republican Party endorsed candidate. If only 3,086 voters in East Haven including Republicans, Independents and other voters had faith in his abilities and skills to be on the Board Of Education then why should we as residents now have faith in his abilites and skills to be State Rep?

Unlike being a leader of the "STUDENT COUNCIL", his well connected opponent brought to the table on his first run for the seat. Thanks for your studious and clearly biased research, Mr. Huff...
Richard Poulton March 22, 2012 at 03:02 PM
I noticed you left out the two hand picked democratics that also did not win a seat on the B of E. Lets see one got 2993 while the other only got 3102 votes. But I know you will say they are not running for another office.
Rosie March 22, 2012 at 03:21 PM
Hysterical. A "young" republican is running for office, yet he can not possibly be qualified. A "young" democrat ran for office, and they were over the moon with joy. You guys are so transparent it is disturbing. Really, you need help. For the record, I know and like young Mr. Albis tremendously..he has not yet been tainted by the party. He actually works for ALL the people of East Haven, not just the DTC. Hope he remains this way....
Lou March 22, 2012 at 03:53 PM
Guess some people are no longer in favor of "UNITY". Robert, why does it seem that you are trying to cause trouble with every post you write? Why can't you just congratulate the man and move on?
Michelle Petroccio March 22, 2012 at 04:13 PM
Craig, wishing youthe very best of luck! You are a fine young man from a wonderful family, and it is a pleasure to know there are young people inour community that are prepared to "take the bull by the horns" and give back what East Haven has given to them. I am confident that your list of supporters will grow very quickly now that the word is out! Congrats to you on this challenge!

Seems like quite a few snippy comments that are completely uncalled for. Why don't some of you give Julie a chance to follow-up with a story. This is just a press release.
Rosie March 22, 2012 at 05:29 PM
I don't have the answers, as I do not know the candidate. I was just making an observation...unless there is a -D after his or her name, you will continually criticize and condemn. It really is getting a little old, and frankly nauseating. But, hey, have a great day!!
Richard Poulton March 22, 2012 at 05:32 PM
. Nice touch Rosie.

Maybe people just don't want to respond to you! Find out yourself!
Lise Cavallaro March 22, 2012 at 07:13 PM
Well, don't know whose comment was deleted in response to me, but feel free to find me on facebook and we'll chat.
Dan McCann March 22, 2012 at 07:38 PM
Robert if Jesus was a republican you'd have a problem with it. Everyone knows you and what you're all about. I think Craig is an excellent candidate. Maybe Mr. Hoff you should run so we can ask what your qualifications are. To you are a partisan hack
Coming from you Dan thats a compliment.
Luigi (the original) March 22, 2012 at 08:33 PM
Just out of curiosity, you want an answer to your questions. Please then answer this, two years ago, what were the qualifications of Mr. Albis? I mean after his candidacy was announced your DTC spoke of how "nice" it was having a "fresh" face in East Haven politics. Seemed experience wasn't all that important to him then, so why are you so concerned now? Instead of congratulating the young man, as you did Mr Albis.
It appears the following was left for me to answer by Luigi the original: "Just out of curiosity, you want an answer to your questions. Please then answer this, two years ago, what were the qualifications of Mr. Albis? I mean after his candidacy was announced your DTC spoke of how "nice" it was having a "fresh" face in East Haven politics. Seemed experience wasn't all that important to him then, so why are you so concerned now? Instead of congratulating the young man, as you did Mr Albis."Normally one does not answer a question with a question unless they are lacking in knowledge of the answer to the intial question asked...However allow me to refresh your memory at the time Mr Albis ran the first time he had experience working both with the town and serving it's many residents.James Albis worked as the Community Development Coordinator for the Town of East Haven, serving as administrator of the Town’s Housing Rehabilitation Program. James worked in the East Haven community in a variety of ways, including serving as an instructor with the Yellowjacket Marching Band, giving private music lessons, interning at the East Haven Probate Court, substitute teaching at EHHS, and tutoring homebound students. He has also worked for Yale University’s Office of Development as a Human Resources Assistant. I firmly believe now as I did then in James commitment to the East Haven community. Now can anyone tell Me Mr Cubelotti's credentials?
Richard Poulton March 22, 2012 at 10:23 PM
Just amazing. A re-write from the Albis bio found on his own web-site. Almost word for word. Come on Robert you can do better than this. Why not wait for the Patch to do a follow-up. But we all know that will not make you happy, only because the following follows his name "(R)"
Dan McCann March 22, 2012 at 10:47 PM
Robert hoff is someone who wishes he was someone thats why he questions everyone. Ignore him
Ivanna D. Truth March 23, 2012 at 03:43 AM
and how many jobs did james up and leave to move on to a new hobby? better yet,, how long did he spend at any of them. what were his qualifications to work for the town of east haven.....oh his name... who replaced him. Megan MCcaulife aka Megan Mauro hmmm another coincidence on the family tree of the DTC..... what were her qualifications? outside of daddy in law.
Captain Blood March 23, 2012 at 12:34 PM
Everyone has the right to run for Office, I do not know this young man but I wish him some luck for I will support Albis for State Rep.
Ivanna D. Truth I find it interesting that you choose to mention Megan but fail to mention Mayor Maturo's daughter who is currently employeed at town hall and despite the Mayor putting a "spending freeze" in place gave his own daughter a raise. Pure and simple Ivanna nepotisim pure and simple.
Richard, You seem to indicate through your response that I have something against people who have an R next to their name this could not be farther from the truth. I do not play the game of disiking or liking someone just because they have an R or a D next to their name....I do however look at the record of achievement when considering candidates for office. I also have many friends that I work with for the betterment of our town many people who have an R next to their name.
Richard Poulton March 23, 2012 at 01:18 PM
Robert, I only state that (R) issue based on all your comments in the past about the last election and prior to it. I to have many friends that have a (D) after there names. But you and I both know when it comes to the vote, its that letter that counts. I will split my vote - will you?
Dan, I find it interesting that you consider me to be "someone who wishes he was someone" and plead with everyone to ignore me but yet you continue to read and reply to my postings here on facebook. I would rather think that residents are free to read what they want and reply to those postings that they feel are worth replying to. Censorship is a tool used to hide the entire picture and often time conceal the truth so Dan what is it that your afraid of and trying to conceal? Those who fail to question often follow blindly behind and that can be a dangerous thing that can often lead to disastorous results and so I will continue to raise questions.....Will you continue to try and practice censorship?
Luigi (the original) March 23, 2012 at 01:29 PM
PERFECT.... that's really all that needed to be said regarding this post. We all know your politics Captain, now we also know you got some class!
Megan March 25, 2012 at 05:34 AM
Ivanna.....outside of daddy in law?? I'm megan, since you'd like to bring my name up, you should be aware that I was more than qualified. I have a university degree, and I don't believe you would find any board member or member of the East Haven Community that would say I wasnt . Also, in today's society a woman who has worked hard in gaining an education and experience can use her maiden name. I'm not sure why that has anything at all to do with anything.
GG- April 25, 2012 at 01:34 AM
Mr. Cubellotti is going to make a fine State Rep. He is honest, he is smart and he is politically savvy. He is a self made man and the state assembly is going to be lucky to have him. If you doubt his qualifications, ask yourself this question....how has what you've got worked out? Given the situation all over this country at all levels of government, it's time to start anew. Give this guy a chance and see what he does. If you don't like it, vote him out.
I wish him the best of luck on this endeavour but since you have brought up the fact that he is politically Savy can you tell me what he has achieved politcally?
robbone June 07, 2012 at 03:19 PM
all i know is after having a conversation with albis and he stated that illegal immigration is a good thing .hes not in his right mind.look at the want ads theres no jobs in the state or country why do you think unemployments so high.alot of companys get rid of good paying workers and hire illegals for half the pay dont give health insurance.and he thinks this is a good thing theres not even minimum wage jobs out there.maybe if he lost his job to an illegal person he understand but thats something he never have to worry about.so if he truly wanted to represent the good' honest'tax paying people of east haven he wouldnt be in favor of illegals here.california with the most illegals is bankrupt' hospitals are closing down from so many illegals going there and not paying there bill.ask him why he thinks illegals are a good thing then you'll understand his mind set.
