Bartok named Wright's campaign manager

Press release from state House candidate Chris Wright, hot off the presses this time (wow, that's an archaic cliche...):

Chris Wright, the Democratic candidate for state representative in the 77th Assembly District, today named Bristol resident Laura Bartok as his campaign manager.
Bartok attended Bristol schools, earned a Bachelors in Social Work from Eastern Connecticut State University and a Masters of Social Work from the UCONN School of Social Work.
“I am excited to have Laura on our team,” Wright said. “She knows Bristol and the people who live here and has been active in politics and dealing with issues that matter.”
Bartok is active with the Connecticut Young Democrats, has worked on Chris Murphy’s congressional campaign and on several legislative campaigns. In addition, she was the Assistant Clerk of the General Assembly’s Commerce Committee this year.
“I believe that Chris is a great candidate who will represent the best interests of residents in the 77th District,” Bartok said. “He knows the issues that are important to people and during this campaign I know his message will resonate with voters.”
If you have any questions, or would like to get involved in Chris Wright’s campaign, feel free to call Laura at (860) 919-5021 or email the campaign at

A neo-socialist who works for other neo-socialists (the obnoxious, arrogant Chris Murphy) is helping another neo-socialist (Chris Wright).

How fitting.

Who cares who his campaign manager is? Is this because he doesn't know the district or the people in Bristol? What Volunteer positions has Chris held in this community? Not things that are involved in Politics, but real community involvement like Bristol clubs and organizations.

Doesn't Wright know Bristol enough himself? He has to hire some hack from the state Democrat Party to help him?

Who has been managing his campaign until know. Why the sudden change? Why is this news?

Three minutes in conversation with the man and you will realize that Wright is WRONG for Bristol

It's OK cause she is a republican though She doesn't need a campaign manager because Burns has her on his arm all the time. Can't she do anything on her own? Is she running or is Burns running again? You guys are hypocrites for sure! If you want to do nothing but bad mouth people who don't think like you , your on. Anybody can snipe!

If she is like Burns then Wright has my vote.

Please inform me of the grammatical errors you find. First of all your error is not capitalizing the word; Republican.

Are you referring to my phrase "the Democrat Party"? Sorry, that is corrcet grammar. It is the Democrat Party NOT the Democratic Party. Thge use of the term "Democratic" (with the capital "D") is incorrect. Are you s "Democratic"? ALthough I am democratic, I am not a Democrat (large "D") therefore I don't belone to the Democrat Party. The use of "ic" at the end is an incorrect (and politically sneaky) use of grammar.

First of all, where is this comment coming from? This article is about Chris Wright, not Jill - so this strikes me as very odd. What does this have to do with Chris hiring a campaign manager?

Secondly, Ron Burns is a great guy - if you think otherwise then either you don't know him or you are just being partisan.

Thirdly, Ron Burns hasn't been around the Fitzgerald08 campaign for quite some time. So to suggest so without actual facts is wrong.

The problem with politics today is that we can never discuss ideas without it eventually ending up in name calling. Let's have honest discourse like Who is Chris or Jill? What have they done? Who is better to represent the 77th district and why? What do they believe, etc?

People's support of candidates should be about the person and not the party. Name calling does nothing to shed light on the issues or the candidates. IMHO, we need more civility.

Anythiong would strike you Republicans odd if it didn't come from you. And this is the perfect example of why you are called hypocrites because you are right this is about Wright not Jill but it's so obvious that you don't say anything about your candidates good or bad. You are what you are and as long as you continue your biased opinions you will get it back so quit the trash or get used to getting it back.

So what does Chris Wright stand for? Or do we have to wait for Ms. Bartok to put the words in his mouth?

It's the ultra-leftist House Democrats (and the AFL-CIO) that will be pulling Wright the puppet's strings.

Dear Sir

I am not a regular poster here. I read some of this blog and made a civil observation. You can trash talk all you want if it makes you somehow feel better, it is America after all.

I corrected false statements and just suggested that this manner of discourse wouldn't be all that effective. I maintain that opinion. I do however understand now how this type of thing results in name calling, which I still won't do however.

Thanks for the enlightenment! :))

You want to consider switching to decaf... :)

And you Sir can't fool me . You are one of the Republicans who are in fact asking for it. We just give it back and we don't start it as you should know.We don't name call unless the republicans start it. Tit for Tat !

And you wise guy might want to switch to coffee decaf or not. Have a nice day to you and enjoy the blog it is funny !

Seems to be a ton of signs out for Jill Fitzgerald....I think I am going to vote for her..And the only reason I am voting for her is because I see that she is active in the community...Does Mr.Wright do anything in the community? No bashing, just asking a question about Mr.Wright?

cseguin said...

Congrats to Laura on her new post. I don't know her personally, but I've heard from mutual friends that she's smart and a hard worker. You definitely need people like that running a campaign.

As a Republican, I can't exactly call myself a Wright backer, but it seems like he's made a solid choice here.

No Republican would consider a liberal, neo-commie Democrat activist and an employee for the House Democrats a "solid choice".

You're not even a registered voter in Bristol. So please just go away.

@ 6:10 pm

I'm neither, thanks though. What sense would it make for Wright, a Democrat, to hire a Republican as his campaign manager?

I was saying that, Wright, as a Democrat, made a wise choice in choosing Bartok (who is heavily involved in the CT Young Democrats, and other Democrat-related organizations) as the campaign manager.

The comment has nothing to do with my opinions on politics or his platform.

Laura Bartok kicks some serious butt. They're lucky to have her. If you ever met Chris Wright, it's easy to tell he's a good guy. All the name-calling in this blog is just mindless graffiti. I think whoever writes it should be sentenced to community service.

Some of you people are complete idiots. You sit here and bash Laura simply cause she's a democrat...how christian. I can tell you one thing I've personally worked with her on numerous community service projects as well which is ten times more than you shot gun carrying, bible thumping, confederate flag waving, pick-up truck driving idiots could say about yourselves anyway. Why don't you go scream about how you want Nascar to be year long and how you want howdy doody back and keep your garbage off this otherwise informative blog.

Consider the source Ms. Bartok. These people on here are republicans that have yet to grow up. All they do is make up stories and lie.....anonomously at that. They are considerd as "gutless wonders."

Yes consider the source Ms. Bartok. I believe in free enterprise and capitalism, you believe socialism like in Europe. That's why I can't stand your politics. But I still would probably buy you a drink anyway.

Your statements are a complete farce. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Nazis were against free-enterprise (especially if you were a Jew). Fascism is a one party system (kind of like Bristol and the entire state of Connecticut for that matter) where the STATE controlled almost all industry (kind of like the Democrats want).

Do some research before you label someone or something.

Ron Burns was a terrible state rep, voting the wrong way on many issues and unable to discuss his vote with constituents without having an attitude.

Good riddance.
