Independent candidate Louis A Bevilacqua today mocked the endorsement by waterbury based "an Independent Party" who threw its lot in with bar owner David Rutigliano in the race for the 123rd CT House district.
Waterbury, an impoverished city on the northern fringe of Connecticut is most famous for being the current place of employment of former Governor and felon John Rowland, who is their economic development director, Mayor Santopietro, who brough numerous 'adult' establishments to the city before going to prison and child molestor Philip Giordano.
Waterbury, one of the poorest areas in the Northeast with neither any industry or efforts to empower the people is one of the favorite communities of corrupt politicians. A locally active group of City Council members from Waterbury recently stole the name "Independent Party" forming a political entity of about a hundred people and have endorsed the Republican nominee for the 123rd House district Dave Rutigliano.
Recently, in Waterbury, the Republicans endorsed the Democratic candiadte for Mayor in municipal elections. "an Independent Party" have also recently endorsed Wrestling maven and North Carolina native Linda McMahon for the US Senate, who also happens to be the Republican nominee this year
"Not sure why Trumbull unaffiliated (Independent) voters outnumber Democrats and Republicans combined, but I would argue that is one of the reasons why the GOP is no longer confident of success on their own in our town. They need a gimmick such as a false party nomination to trick people into voting for Dave." said Mr Bevilacqua "The Trumbull GOP has obviously nominated so many bad candidates who clearly are not doing the work for the people."
"If you want a real republican who knows the ins and outs at the state capitol, someone who will provide independent leadership, vote for Bevilacqua," concluded the candidate.
