SEIU BACKS ESTY FOR THE 5TH
This week the Service Employees International Union Connecticut State Council (SEIU), with 12,000 members in the Congressional District, endorsed Esty. The SEIU Council includes six local affiliated unions – Congress of Connecticut Community Colleges, Connecticut Employees Union Independent, Connecticut State Employees Association, International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local 731, New England Health Care Employees Union District 1199, and SEIU Local 32BJ.
“We endorse Elizabeth Esty for Congress because our members are confident she will stand up and fight the radical right wing tea party agenda,” Paul Filson, Director of the SEIU CT State Council said. “We know she will champion rights for workers and their families. She will fight to protect the promise of Social Security and Medicare. She will push for common sense investments in education, services and vital infrastructure improvements for Connecticut’s 5th Congressional district.”
Said Esty “SEIU has a uniquely diverse membership and a proud 90 year history of building and strengthening America’s middle class. I’m looking forward to standing with SEIU and the more than 12,000 SEIU members in the 5th District to fight for the fair paychecks, collective-bargaining rights, and secure retirements that hard-working families deserve and to protect the Medicare and Social Security benefits that our seniors have earned.”

HONORING CASIMIR PULASKI
Public officials, including State Senator Terry Bielinski Gerratana, State Rep. Peter Tercyak, State Rep. Bobby Sanchez, Alderman Larry Hermanowski and former Mayor Lucian Pawlak, joined veterans and residents October 14th in the annual observance honoring military commander Casimir Pulaski (1745-1779) at the city park and monument at the end of Broad Street. Pulaski fought for freedom in Poland and in the American War of Independence and is widely honored as “the father of American cavalry”
“To summarize, then, the true Romney plan is to create an economic boom through the sheer power of Mr. Romney’s personal awesomeness. But the campaign doesn’t dare say that, for fear that voters would (rightly) consider it ridiculous. So what we’re getting instead is an attempt to brazen it out with nakedly false claims. There’s no jobs plan; just a plan for a snow job on the American people.”
New York Times Columnist Paul Krugman from “Snow Job On Jobs” October 18th
