Wright, Nicastro back newspaper legal ads

Press release issue today:
STATE REPRESENTATIVES WRIGHT AND NICASTRO SUPPORT PUBLICATION OF PUBLIC NOTICES IN NEWSPAPERS, OPPOSE GOVERNOR’S PROPOSAL THAT WOULD CURB PUBLIC NOTICES IN LOCAL NEWSPAPERS

“Public’s Right To Know Is Primary Concern”

State Representative Christopher Wright (D-Bristol) and State Representative Frank Nicastro (D-Bristol) oppose a proposal by the Governor that would allow cities and towns to publish important public notices on town web sites rather than be published in local newspapers.
“The public’s right to know far outweighs any possible cost savings,” Rep. Nicastro said. “Keeping legal notice information from citizens is a dangerous precedent that we should avoid. Who knows what comes next?”
“I spend a great deal of time going door to door talking with constituents one on one and I am very much aware that not everyone, especially our seniors, have computers,” Rep. Wright warned. “Let’s not forget them and anyone else who may not be able to access the internet.”
“Elected officials and government at all levels must be accountable to the public and one way that’s accomplished is public awareness of local meetings and legal notices that impact public policy,” the Bristol legislators said.
The legislators understand that governments at all levels are dealing with tight budgets and that unnecessary spending must be constrained, “but, curbing the public’s access to public notices that affect there lives is not a way to go. Taxpayers need more information  about what there government is doing, not less.”

so get off of your computers at the capitol and do something. The savings on this publicity thing is small anyhow but there are a lot of big issues which affect us.

More gas from gas-bag union pawn Tommie Two-Tone Toupe' and gas-bag Chris "little Che'" Wright.

How about putting it on record what the actual labor costs are for all the state employees including their gold-plated pension and benefit packages.

wow, that really builds up my confidence in our legislators but guess that we should be happy that they, at least, thought about something. wonder who gave wright the clue?

For the handful of people that read the notices in the paper it is not worth to keep putting them in the paper. Lets embrace technology. These guys are just grandstanding.

This is about municipal savings..by itself, it is not going to make a big difference. I am all for it, but there are still some who have no computer or skills..so let them read it in the legal notices...probably the least read section of any newspaper.

The MUCH bigger issue here is as an earlier poster identified is the HUGE benefit cost the dumocrates like Nicastro and Colopietro (Wright is so insignificant) have allowed to be paid to state unions.

We have fewer people living in this state then we did 10 years ago and the number of state employees have grown by 25-30%. Why? Because the dumocrates suck up to the unions thats why.

Nicastro Colpietro and I guess we might as well include the fool from the 77th. all need to go...they all vote to increase taxes and spending on any level they can. They are loyal to unions voters not the taxpayers or the non union voters.

great, now that we know what moneies that they want to spend, how about telling us what monies that you are going to cut so that we know how much money we, taxpayers, won't have to pay? The public has a right to know this also.
Up to now, it seems to be too much to ask but how I am going to welcome the november elections, new faces, new principles.

Be polite, please. Be aware, too, that your words will mean more if you identify yourself. If you see a comment that should be killed, please tell me about it, including where I can find it in order to remove it. Do yourself a favor and remember that somebody can sue you, subpoena records from Google and find out who you are. So don't say something you wouldn't want to defend in court.
What a joke this blog is!
