One of the more interesting State Rep races in the state is in Danbury with two young politicians vying for the 109th seat vacated by Joe Taborsak.
Here’s my interview with Democratic David Arconti and Republican Andrew Wetmore.
Elizabeth Esty’s campaign took a hit when a 2005 video surfaced that showed the Democratic Congressional candidate telling individuals in her hometown who did not like the recent town revaluation that they “are always welcome to move to one of our neighboring towns.”
During one of her last campaign stops on Sunday, speaking to a congregation at Mount Pleasant A.M.E. Zion Church, Esty explained the rationale behind her comment and how her statement led her to run for office.
You can view Esty’s entire remarks in Danbury below…
Following in the footsteps of Danbury City Clerk Jean Natale, Danbury city council majority leader Pauline Basso, and immigration hate-group leader Elise Marciano, another one of Mayor Mark Boughton’s close political confidants exposes his racist undertones.
If you know former “>city councilman (and immigration hate-group sympathizer) Robert Arconti, you’re not surprised…although I’m sure some people at the Danbury News-Times would be shocked to see their former Human Resource manager, Carol Arconti’s, name proudly displayed on this offensive piece of garbage.
I wonder how former Mayor Gino Arconti would feel about his family’s name being associated with such blatant racism?
