LETTER: Special Election Democratic Ploy

May 27, 2015 Elections, Opinion No Comments

ball
To the Editor:
Scott Jackson left office on April 17.  If he had stayed in office until the beginning of May, there would have been no need for an expensive town-wide Special Mayoral Election on Thursday May 28***.
I believe that the Special Election is a cynical ploy by the Democratic Party machine to get Curt Leng established as the incumbent before the regular mayoral election in November.
I also believe that we need better candidates, in November, than thoseon Thursday’s ballot (see sample ballot below).
If you agree with me, please fill in “1D” on the ballot for a write-in protest vote.  I have agreed to allow my name to be used as a write-in candidate because I am qualified to be Mayor of Hamden, as you can see if you look at my profile and experience on LinkedIn, for example.  However, you should write in whatever name you choose.
If you want better candidates for mayor in November, write in your protest vote and share this message with your friends and neighbors.
Ann M. Altman Ph.D.
***”The town charter calls for a special election if there is six months left in the departing official’s term, which means the parties could be faced with holding three elections this year: a special election to finish out Jackson’s term, likely in June; a primary in August to determine candidates for the November election; and then the November election itself.” (New Haven Register)
