The following is a press release from Dan McCann, one of the lead organizers of the new East Haven local town committee of the Independent Party of Connecticut.
On January 24, 2013 at 7pm, there will be an informational meeting regarding the formation of the Independent Party of Connecticut in the Town of East Haven.
The meeting will be held at the East Haven Community Center a.k.a East Haven Senior Center located at 91 Taylor Avenue, East Haven, CT 06512.
All residents of the Town of East Haven who are over 18 years of age and are eligible to vote in elections are encouraged to attend.
We also encourage members of the Independent Party of Connecticut who reside in the Town of East Haven to attend as well as any Democrat, Republican or any other minority party in East Haven who are interested in changing parties and joining a party that is interested in putting East Haven Taxpayers first.
We will have voter registration forms for any intention.
“It is time East Haven removes the two sided political system that has polarized the East Haven Community for the past 20 years. With the Independent Party of Connecticut the residents of East Haven will now have a major 3rd party to represent their issues, hear their concerns and affect change for the betterment of East Haven. Aligning ourselves with the Independent Party of Connecticut, the residents of East Haven will have the 3rd largest political party in Connecticut represented in East Haven and it will allow voters to access Local, State and National Offices on the ballot. It will provide the freedom to vote as an Independent as well.
Over the next several months we will hold meetings to organize the party, arrange districts and select district members throughout the Town of East Haven. We expect our new party will have a seat at the table with Democrats and Republicans and we expect to be a major player in the upcoming Old High School discussions, 2013-14 Budget Session and the November municipal elections.
We look forward to seeing everyone on January 24th and begin the hard work to put East Haven in the right direction.”
