Give Republicans a chance to lead New London

New London has for decades been stuck at a crossroads, wondering in which direction to go, and living hand-to-mouth while trying to decide. Our latest episode has us questioning the all-magnet district for New London Public Schools. We’re also now second-guessing the United States Coast Guard Museum in downtown. 

I believe in the all-magnet school district and have not given up hope. Recent events, however, regarding the apparent loss of state funding for previously approved construction projects and poor information flow to city residents and taxpayers do not bode well for the project’s success. 

I also believe we need to support efforts to ensure the success of the United States Coast Guard Museum. This project lags the all-magnet school district project, so there is time to fix what could be significant issues with traffic flow and parking. 

Let’s make these projects work and choose the right turn. 

The New London Republicans offer five candidates for the City Council and six candidates for the Board of Education. Each is ready to serve and will make the right choices for New London and finally move us beyond the crossroads. On Nov. 7, vote Row B, then watch and see.

This theory is based on 20 years of war in Vietnam (1955 to 1975). The draft did not include college students until they graduated. As the war progressed, students began to agitate against the war: they didn’t want to be drafted on graduation. The above were serious...

All this time off for employees hurts small businesses, eliminates good jobs

Connecticut recently passed a law guaranteeing paid family and medical leave for up to 12 weeks at full pay. Someone needs to explain why every employee who gets a paycheck will pay an additional tax for this benefit whether they use it or not, except for government or municipal employees who...
