Lamont Kicks off Labor Day in New Britain

If you’re so inclined, here are links to my [Tip-Jar] and [Wishlist] (see below for details)
Just a couple of short hours ago supporters, volunteers, and at least three elected officials (State Representatives Peter Tercyak, Tim O’Brien, and Deputy Majority Leader Demetrios Giannaros) gathered in solidarity behind Ned Lamont. Lamont was set up across the street from an abandoned Stanley Works building, and told the crowd that “deserted plants are not inevitable, they are the results of bad choices.”

Selected quotes from the event and video:

Deputy Majority Leader Representative Demetrios Giannaros
“People like Ned Lamont, who have the business expertise and economic expertise to go in there into the Senate and challenge what they are doing, and hopefully introduce new economic policies in addition to international affairs policies that will make the U.S. what it was during the Clinton administration. The country that was looked up to, and everyone was proud of, and the world was really looking up to us for direction.”

Attorney Richard Kazinsky of New Britain
“I can tell you that health insurance is a very big issue in my office. I have very high deductible, bare-bones insurance for my staff, and it’s my biggest expense other than salaries. We certainly need universal healthcare and I’m very happy that Ned Lamont is here to talk about that very issue.”

Ned Lamont, Democratic Nominee for U.S. Senate
“We oughta have a strong labor movement, a union movement, that starts fighting for working people again to make sure that good paying jobs stay in this country and that work pays.”

Ned’s going to be very busy this Labor Day weekend, here are a few of the many events listed on his website:

Amazon Honor SystemAs will become customary, when I go to an event and post a video (in this case an exclusive, unless you plan to watch the Tokyo Broadcasting Station), I’ll post a plea for contributions to the tip-jar or purchases from the wishlist. I’m going to add a few other items to the wishlist–such as books or CDs–because I’ve received more blank tapes than I may be able to use by November (I will probably share them with ctblogger and CT Bob).

Please note that for some reason, the Amazon paypage isn’t coming up. At least, when I click the tip-jar link it directs me to a generic shopping page. I suspect (hope!) this problem will be resolved soon. (If the paybox is visible in this post, then chances are the paypage/tip-jar is working)
