Colapietro seeking another term in state Senate

Press release from state Sen. Tom Colapietro, a Bristol Democrat:
Bristol Senator Tom Colapietro received the Democratic nomination for State Senate Monday night. A moderate crowd filled the town council chambers as thirty-six delegates made their unanimous decision.

“I’m very pleased with the outcome of tonight. I fight hard to make sure that my constituents get their fair share and I know that in all my years in office, I’ve been a strong advocate for my district,” said Senator Colapietro. “Receiving this nomination is proof that the people of the 31st agree and would like to see experience and leadership continue to stand on their behalf.”
The nomination was made by Harwinton First Selectman Frank Chiaramonte and seconded by State Representative Betty Boukus (D-Plainville).
“Tom has always been there to help whenever Harwinton needed something,” said First Selectman Frank Chiaramonte. “He helped coordinate resources to fix the entrance to Harwinton Cemetery and also secured a grant for $420,000 for renovations and construction of an additional building for the Harwinton Volunteer Ambulance Association among many other things.”
“I have worked with Tom for a long time and have appreciated his communication whenever something needed to be done. He always picked up the phone and included me when it came to Bristol. I have a deep respect for the work that he has done and look forward to continuing our work together.” said Representative Boukus.
Senator Colapietro stated that while the last two years have been tough, with budgetary and fiscal restraints compounding the process, he expects the next two to be even tougher. “I understand the situation we are in and think that we all may have to hurt a little to get through it. People want results and are anxious for the economy to improve,” said the Senator. “I’m not the type of guy to run from a challenge and while I am actively campaigning for reelection, I still have a job to do in Hartford. I’m ready for the difficulties that face us in the future and stand prepared with my sleeves rolled up.”

I'll vote for Tommie again only if he ditches the toupe'. Hair pieces are offensive because they promote surgical augmentation.

12:24 pm I see you namecalling cockroaches are out again. You must be jealous of his Toupe because you've been talking about it for years. And stop your lying will ya? You wouldn't vote for him no matter what he ditches. You probably aren't even a registered voter. You can't prove sHHHHHHHH

Tom is not one of me, and he never has been. I have never agreed with the way he voted and the causes he's jumped on the bandwagon for I could never support. Jason Welch seems like nice enough guy, very smart, and has some good ideas. He's probably the best candidate for state senate that we've had recently. Just his way of looking at the state budget is enough to give him my vote. We sure don't want to hand over a huge debt to our kids. What does Tom say about the financial mess that he's helped to create?

10:13 Looks like you got another rich kid to lose again. But what's new? A carpetbagger is better than what? Big L ......again! Remember "nice guy's finish last?"
Same old crap from you jerks!

10:13 Thank god Tom has enough sense to not be one of you useless whiners.

“I understand the situation we are in and think that we all may have to hurt a little to get through it.“

Well, he should understand it, since he's helped to put us in this situation. I don't want to "hurt". I want my Senator to work on cutting the state budget. Tom has refused to do that. He's got to go.

I wish that Tom would have the good sense of public service to step down and let the people be represented with someone who has a vision for the future not someone who protects the status quo. It's been like 16 years.

Please, people of Bristol, pay attention and vote for Jason Welch!

11:19 Blah, Blah, Blah. Ever think you idiots might be the ones who should quit? And for your info it's been 18 years of good representation from someone we know not a carpetbagger.

"Do what you want, cockroaches, I don't need you to win!"



That sounds like something somebody who is running for office would say and as I look up and down this board you are the one calling people cockroaches, jerks,infidels, etc. I don't know if it is you Senator, but if it is you should be ashmed of yourself for talking like a school yard bully.

I can't see how ANYONE could vote for Colapietro based on his record as our Senator. He has done so little, and even that was not for our good. I am glad we have some one like Jason Welch who is willing to do the job well.

8:38 Give up the lying and crying will ya? We are used to you three phonies. It's really useless and old like your same old nasty stuff.
Blah , Blah, Blah. Can't find Anything new ? And I'm really glad you now love your carpetbagger friend Welch instead of your sweetheart Hamzy. At least Hamzy used to (claim) he did stuff. What was it you said Welch did?

If Mary is opposed to Colapietro it is because Ward told her to be.

Strange bedfellows, huh?

11:24 Who cares what you give ! Your probably to cheap to give anyway. We'll never know now will we. Blah, Blah, Blah. I don't think anyone wants your money unless you want to give back the money you already screwed out of them. Kinda like a rat! Take when nobody know's who you are!Try earning a living not ripping people off.

I don't think Tom realizes that there is going to be work involved, hard work to get CT out of the debt which he voted for. This is no time for people who just stand on the sidelines, we need Senators who will have energy and ideas to contribute. Tom should have a plan to get the state out of debt and have a balanced budget. What is his plan?

Who woke up the useless cockroaches?

I think Rell vetoed all of the budgets that came before him. He voted for the last budget that she signed. What is your planb? Oh I forgot you just like to lie! Blah, Blah Blah! What's wrong can't blame any of your friends?

If Welch has a plan to get us out of this mess, I want to hear it. And if it sounds good, he's got my vote. God knows we don't need to go any further into the hole, and we're not hearing a peep from Colapetro.

Anonymous said...

No more who let the dogs out it's who let the rats out. And again Welch has more to do with wall street than Colapietro does. Gaurenteed. Who are you trying to kid. Insurance companies more than helped do this to us. You actually believe that Jason a big time insurance salesman is going to save us? He even makes you look like a two bit insurance gutless salesman. LMAO like the fox n the henhouse.

9:09 we hear a lot of useless nothings from you.Maybe he has more sense than to argue with a faceless cynic like you.

Anonymous said...

7:47, I don't want to argue, I would just like to hear a plan to get us out of this mess. When is Colapetro going to tell us how he's fixing it? I've never heard him say anything about it, as if this debt doesn't exist and we're not heading toward bankruptcy! I'd like to get something in the mail from him about THAT. A plan.

Anonymous said...

12:41 I don't want to argue either . So when and how are you and Jason going to get us out of the mess YOU created?

Anonymous said...

Do you and Jason have a plan? And after creating this mess how will you insurance people get us out of it? What's your plam more cowardly whining? And You people with $$$$$$$$$$$$ are who made uthis mess. Now you come up and fix it! But honestly that would take leadership. Something you don't have under a rock !

It seems our legislators in Hartford love to screw us out of our money. That is why they need to get the old heave-ho. We've got to get common sense in state government.
