Connecticut, it's YOUR time!


Credit:  https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/af/37/88/af37882de9a84bc8da70a7252c07219e.jpg

ezs note:  If you live in Connecticut (as I do) there's a special call I'd like you to make.  Connecticut has a good record in terms of transgender rights, but there's one area that's been left behind.  It's in the, uh, "practice" of "reparative therapy", a crackpot pseudo-science with all the merits of Kirilian photography.  If you wanna give it a try, go ahead - but just know you're being ripped off - big time.  Fortunately, my State Senator Beth Bye (my hero!)  is working to get Connecticut out of this business entirely. If you live in Connecticut,  please call your state representative and state senator and tell them that "reparative therapy" has no place in Connecticut medicine.  Just like Kirilian photography.  Thanks.

Connecticut's 32nd state Senate district

ezs note: Next Tuesday, voters in Connecticut's 32nd state Senate district will hold a special election to replace Rob Kane. Although I am somewhat reticent to endorse anyone in this race, unless Eric Berthel (R) shows forth ironclad endorsement for transgender people, I would likely encourage you to vote for Greg Cava (D).  (Petitioning candidate Dan Lynch is also running.)

Above all, I urge you to vote.  It's your one chance to directly affect who your state Senator will be.  So, uh, vote!

ezs note:  Oh boy.  Donald Trump - president.  Isn't that just wonderful.

Well, I'll tell you what you do.  You call or e-mail, often.  I don't think that it will matter that much dialing Trump's number - but I do think it will matter a great deal to your representative.  But - ya gotta call.  If you are uncertain who your representative is click www.house.gov and enter your ZIP code.

But - ya gotta call!!

The rest of the ticket


Credit:  http://www.canivote.org/New-Election-Day-2016jpg.gif

So far, I have covered the top of the ticket by selecting Hillary Clinton (D) over Donald Trump
(R), Gary Johnson (L) or Jill Stein (G).  Here is the rest of the ticket.

US Senator
Richard Blumenthal (D) over Dan Carter (R), Richard Lion (L) , or Jeffery Russell (G)

US Representative
John B. Larson (D) over Matthew M. Corey (R) or S. Michael DeRosa (G)

State Senator
Beth Bye (D) over Mark Merritt (R)

State Rep. (18)
Andrew Fleischmann (D) over Rob Levine (R) 

State Rep. (19)
Chris Barnes (R) over Derek Slap (D)

In the 20th State Rep. district (Joe Verrengia-D) and the Judge of Probate (Owen Eagan-D) both are unopposed. As far as the Registrar of Voters goes, hell, flip a coin - they both get in.
