FOR THE SAKE OF THE FUTURE OF NEW CANAAN, STOPPING THE WASTEFUL SPENDING OF YOUR TAX DOLLARS, THE RUBBER-STAMPING OF UNNEEDED PET PROJECTS, THE MIS-HANDLING OF OUR TOWN’S FINANCES BY NON-FINANCIAL INCOMPETENTS YOU MUST: “VOTE ROW D FOR ROY A ABRAMOWITZ –PETIONING CANDIDATE FOR TOWN COUNCIL” THE ONLY CANDIDATE WITH A PROVEN FINANCIAL BACKROUND WHO ONLY CARES ABOUT REPRSENTING YOUR VOICE, NOT A SLATE OF CANDIDATES HAND-PICKED BY THEIR FRIENDS OR PARTY POLITICS. Why would you vote for incumbents who have: •Never held a financial position •Are responsible for approving budgets and spending your tax dollars utilizing inaccurate financial documents. •approving over $1,000,000 in legal invoices to fight a $250,000 arbitration •Approve unearned pensions for their buddy •Hide behind closed meetings in Executive session not accepting accountability for their actions •Strive to hurt our resident commuters by building housing in the lumberyard New Canaan train station parking. Our resident commuters pay 70% of the Town’s taxes •Spend $700,000 “non-reimbursable” to ship Sandy tree limbs to upstate New York when they could have sold the wood. •Spend $75,000,000 on the Board of Education but accept a ranking of 15th in the State and 544th in the country. Again no accountability, just spend away. NEW CANAAN NEEDS CHANGE ON THE TOWN COUNCIL NOW AND I DO NOT MEAN A “SLATE OF CANDIDATES” THAT WILL CONTINUE TO VOTE IN UNISON WITH THEIR INCUMBENT CRONIES. PROTECT YOUR TAX DOLLARS AND THE FUTURE OF YOUR CHILD IN NEW CANAAN. PLEASE VOTE ROW D FOR THE INDEPENDENT PETIONING CANDIDATE WHO WILL BE YOUR “CHECKS AND BALANCES” AGAINST CLUB POLITICS AND WASTEFUL SPENDING. HISTORY DOES NOT LIE, THE INCUMBENT CANDIDATES DO!!! JUST READ THIS COMMENT FROM A NC REPUBLICAN TOWN COMMITTEE MEMBER: There is no question that The Gang of Four is arrogant and presumptuous and willing to do everything short of arrestable offenses to win tomorrow. I think they know that there is going to be a LOT of crossover voting as well as "outside the box" voting. By that I mean that allegiance to party orthodoxy is flying out the window. We may have a town full of Rs, but many feel no loyalty to the caucus-endorsed slate, starting with me. May righteousness prevail tomorrow... “VOTE ROW D – ROY FOR A VOICE”

Rob for the job has changed this year to Roy for the Job Give Rob the help he needs
Tom November 05, 2013 at 11:55 AM
I happily voted for Roy! Bugs Bunny got my vote for 1St selectman. It was the better choice!
Roy A. Abramowitz November 05, 2013 at 12:18 PM
Thank you Tom, hopefully the electors will realize the urgency of getting real financial persons on the TC and not vote for friends responsible for higher taxes, wasteful spending and have absolutely no financial expertise or experience just talk a good talk
Tom November 06, 2013 at 08:29 AM
Nice turn out Roy. Sorry we couldn't make it happen. I think it's time for a bumper sticker. "Don't blame me I voted for Roy" and "Roy told you so".
Roy A. Abramowitz November 06, 2013 at 11:51 AM
Thanks Tom. Congrats to the winners. However it is slate politics and the popularity contest all over again. 18 votes separate three R candidates. Same for the two winning D's. The party voters came out. 1947 R votes , 1627 D votes total 3,574 total votes out of 3,481 actual. So figure 93 crossover votes for Kathleen Corbet. Conclusion the phone banks got out their constituents and the 3,500 independents and unhappy 4,553 Republicans and 716 unhappy Democrats did not vote. Until this changes nothing will change. Proud I am responsible for a real debate, and bringing the issues up for the good of New Canaan. However I am done.
Tom November 06, 2013 at 02:32 PM
I am sorry to hear that you are done.
