New Third, Independent Political Party Forming in East Haven

Organizers are holding an informational meeting — which is open to all registered voters in town — regarding the formation of a new local town committee in East Haven for the Independent Party of CT on Jan. 24 at the senior center.

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.”

Well stated @George Kenyon, "Both have their gravy trains and both have helped destroy our town. There is many good people in both parties, but sadly, the people making the decisions are doing so for their own needs, not ours. This is hopefully the first step in making East Haven a better Town that puts its residents first." There is definitely good people in both parties. I believe the biggest hurdle for this new party is going to be the fact that people in general do not do well with change. Although change is sometimes scary and intimidating it is often well needed as in the case of typical East Haven politics. The old time politicians in this town are banking on the ideology "We should not be afraid of change, we should return to the old ideas." I say NO. I hope to see many towns people at this first meeting supporting and embrassing change. Contributing their thoughts and ideas for a better East Haven. If we continue to travel the same path day in and day out, we will never encounter positive change... Your voice counts.

I am glad to see any change to politics as usual in CT. Hope this is just the start of a bigger movement. After all, generations of mindless voters have voted unthinkingly for incompetent career politicians like this one (DeLauro), who was at least good for a laugh last week (and very often) in her ridiculous choice of attire. http://www.theblaze.com/blog/2013/01/03/photo-meet-congress-craziest-dresser/ The comments are a needed chuckle, such as these: "Another complete embarrassment for Connecticut! Female Ichabod Crane!" Rollybones ..."is this person actually a man or cross dresser?" FormykidsVA "She might be rich, but she dresses like she picks from a garbage bin." Livia "What in the World?…my eyes are hurting!…make it stooooooooop" Elisheva "It appears that a series of throw-rugs threw up on Keith Richards." Slapweasel "Looks like Keith Richard’s twin brother. That haircut does not help in the least, clearly." Piper60 "Uh, lady, you are way too old for those boots, and those hair streaks… total fashion FAIL!" AllAmericangirl22 (DeLauro will be 70 yrs. old in just a couple of months.) This comment may be the most insightful: "She is a Liberal, that is what happens when a Liberal grows older physically but maintains their childlike liberal mentality." Jenny Lee
