At my last Democratic Town Committee meeting our Democratic State Committeeperson told me that the state party got a new communications director recently. Now if you go to the state democratic party website you can see events are now updated, there was an event e-mail sent out today, and the twitter has come alive. I hope the new communications director is reading MLN and might consider introducing herself. I’m looking forward to see a lot more stuff coming out of the state party in the coming months.
I have installed the WP-O-Matic plug-in and so now my posts on the MyLeftNutmeg blog will be automatically imported into the homepage. Their titles will link directly to the posts on the MyLeftNutmeg site but you will still be able to see them here. Hopefully it will keep this site fresher and allow the political posts to get a little more circulation online.
This is the season for Democratic conventions in Connecticut. I will be serving as a delegate to the Judge of Probate Convention (a low key uncontested affair). I will also be serving as a delegate for John Larson, the Congressman I interned for in Washington DC.
Even though these are largely pro forma affairs I was impressed that the candidate for probate judge still called me to ask for my vote and tell me about his candidacy. Turns out he attended the law school I go to and he spent time to share some advice and wisdom. In a time where a lot of people in Connecticut politics are online, I think the phone call is truly one of the most powerful tools available to candidates for connecting with people. It’s all a matter of caring.
Just wanted to share a copy of the e-mail I sent out about the student trustee election results (below the split).
I was waiting for an official announcement to be sent before I sent
this but since it seems that may not happen I wanted to inform you
that Adam Scianna (a Civil Engineer at Storrs) won the Graduate
Student Trustee election. I want to express my sincere gratitude to
everyone that supported me, voted, and sent kind words. It meant a lot
to me and I enjoyed the opportunity to hear your stories and concerns
about our school as I campaigned. While I will not have the
opportunity to tackle these as student trustee, I will continue to
stay involved in other ways.
As always you should feel free to contact our competent and hard
working SBA representatives if you have problems or suggestions for
things on campus. They work hard for you and I know they are more than
happy to try and address problems or suggestions you might have.
