It's not a win for Darien because the shuffle is a total loser. I need to quote myself. When the Republicans announced their candidates in June. I said "On November 8th at 8:30pm these will be the newly elected, expect higher taxes, small town intellect, and no clue of the global economy." It's the voters who elected Obama. It's the voters who perpetuate "leaders" who are lack-luster. Does this mean Obama will be elected again?? History repeats itself. Where is a next downtown property we can purchase for administrative offices? Does anyone else realize the shuffle is a total blunder? Special thanks to my supporters. If you thought the Republicans were doing the right thing you would have voted for them. They are not. Fun fact. I spent 190 dollars on my campaign and got 63 votes. $3 per vote. Looks like more of the same for Darien... higher taxes... ... ...

We have very low taxes in Darien compared to other towns. Check out CERC reports http://www.cerc.com/TownProfiles/Customer-Images/2010/Darien2010.pdf Its about time we did something for the 2,500 people over 65. I refer you again to the Cerc report that is put out by the state of Connecticut.

"Only have a 100 million dollars of debt." "No other projects in the pipeline." "Affordable senior housing on Edgerton Street, 'No cost to the taxpayer'." And... the Tooth Fairy. I need to take the Republicans campaign and write it into a children's bedtime story. Children are the only ones who will believe it... but then again, kids are pretty smart, too bad they can't vote.

"... but then again, kids are pretty smart, too bad they can't vote. No, not exactly. A short story from two years ago. We stopped by a Burger King to grab some quick food. The electricity was out. So, the cash register was inoperative. They were refusing to take orders because they had no way to make change. After we explained that most cash registers have a lever on the bottom, which open the cash drawer, that part was solved. (Not a single employee knew that.) A few minutes later we got our food and the real fun began. They had a battery operated calculator and they added up the order. Both my wife and I had added up to bill (upside down and in our heads) and come up with the same answer. When we told them their calculator number was wrong, they used it again and came up with a different number (still wrong). When a third attempt was made and a third (different) answer came out, the manager said, "Just give them the change on their (our) number. I'm sure they are right." We ate our meal and departed, certain that no one in that store was capable of making change without a register that told them "how much change to give." I know, that's a terrible thing to say of our current math teaching. (It also proves that math teaches are not even teaching kids how to use a calculator accurately.) No, kids today are not "pretty" smart. and they shouldn't be voting. It was a pretty good system we had when only people who actually owned land could vote. No, not fair, but it was good.
