Colapietro commends those who ran for office

Letter from state Sen. Tom Colapietro to all of Tuesday's candidates:

As always I commend all those who put themselves on the line for their community. They all worked hard and it was refreshing to see the candidates hold a civil campaign.
They are all winners Democrat, Republican and unaffiliated as well.
At times it is a difficult task to be an elected official and it took a lot of courage by all who ran.
Congratulations to all , it makes one proud to have so many good candidates. Please don't give up the ship, the community needs you!
Senator Tom Colapietro

Senator:
I will commend you for doing what is best for the city of Bristol and the state of Connecticut which would result in one act by you... that is not running again.

Tom, have some courage yourself, because some one has their eye on your seat.

I didn't see any thing wrong with his statement! I thought it was pretty gracious. Where did you clowns see anything wrong with it? It wasn't because you can only see Colapietros name? Have fun losers !

Come to think of it isn't that the same threat you Republicans have been using on him for years? I don't think you scare him!

Where is excatly is the threat you're referring to? Perhaps you should borrow Ward's thesaurus for better word usage?

I'm merely suggesting for the good of the people of the state it would be better that the Senator find something else to do besides stay in office and keep Connecticut the rust ridden state it has become.

There you go again, hurling your childish, baseless insults. For one, the writer of the post you're referring to, doesn't need to leave. But perhaps you and your children (if you have any) will soon? If you haven't noticed (and obviously you haven't), the Democrats have been driving businesses (those are things that create jobs) out of the state for the last 20 or more years. Wake up.

1) Please grow up

2) Perhaps the "threat" you're* referring to is from your own party?

*And that's you're as in "you are" not "your" (sic) as in possession.

Tom:
I'm a Republican, I don't agree with you on anything, but this statement was gracious.
Thank You

Say what you will, like me or not, I really don't care. I ran a campaign on what I believed in and 1,059 people voted for what I believed in. Thank you to all of them and congratulations to the candidates that got elected.

What disturbed me most is how this blog attacked Terry Parker. Shame on the conservatives that attacked him because we are supposed to be above that and shame on anyone else to comment on what their "perception" is. He was one of the few democrats that was truly gracious towards me and all I can say is God forbid that you have a child born with a neurological disorder or some sort of handicap. You are a disgusting lot to tease and insult him about whatever his problems may be. At least he had the intestinal fortitude to stand up and fight for what he believed in. Right or wrong, you attack him on that, not the way he carries himself or speaks. I am embarassed for those of you that criticized him relentlessly and then go to church on Sunday and pretend to be of God. Each and every one of you (including conservatives) that slandered him really should step up, print your name and offer an apology. If this is politics in this town, then I can see why nobody chooses to become involved. For those of you that might have a handicap or know someone with a handicap, shame on you, walk a mile in that man's shoes before you can even appreciate what he has been through. Self-righteous pompeous asses, you should be discusted with yourselves for calling someone out like that. I hope you don't live your lives like that on a daily basis.

To 12:17 What you really mean is that you and your so called businesses have no one left to screw so you don't know how to earn it. As far as the rest of your trash you guys started it and I guess you think we can't be childish like you.

To Richard Scarola,
Your post made me wish you'd won.
Thanks for having the decency to write what needed to be said.

3:30 p.m. Wow, you just can't get over yourself, Scarola, huh? it was interesting reading it the first time and deciding whether you did it for votes in two years or you did it with all sincerity. Now I know you did it for votes, because you are posting it EVERYWHERE!!! enough already!

I just found some interesting research on Senator Colapietro and no where in this research can I find where he voted against all the breaks that we as taxpayers gave to businesses small and large. I think it's about time you guys stop lying to the public and yourselves. You are to blind to see and tell the truth. You don't like him , New Departure people, Unions and who knows what else. It's a good thing people can see through your petty leis. It's time you clowns grow up or go away. It's a good thing our elected officials aren't as biased as you three. The record shows that his record is better for businesses and working folks than all your republican friends. Look it up !
