So I have posted the article from the Record Journal written by Dave Moran; the post is Statute a sticking point for Dickinson dinner
I have a POLL question up this week regarding the same here on the blog. Please consider weighing in.
Additionally, I have the actual statue - Sec. 9-609. (Formerly Sec. 9-333k). Party committees; designation as campaign treasurer. Limitation on multiple committees. Fund-raising events and testimonial affairs – posted from http://www.cga.ct.gov/2009/pub/chap155.htm#Sec9-609.htm on the blog as well at Supporters of Mayor Dickinson are having a testimonial for him – is this in violation of Connecticut General Statutes?
I am planning to do my next FROM WALLINGFORD article on this topic as well.
Somewhere between the desire for the supporters to have a celebratory event for the Mayor, the statute itself and its interpretation, what is legally binding (or not), and political bravado, there are three simple sayings that keep going through my head:
“The road to hell is paved with good intentions”
“No one is above the law”
“No good deed goes unpunished”
Be sure to check out FROM WALLINGFORD next Sunday.
