I am planning to attend. I hope any CT FReepers will also go.
If anyone has another CT ping list please use it for this.
I plan on leaving Waterbury around noon (1/2-day vacation from work) - I can take someone who needs a ride - please Freepmail me if you want to carpool.
Excellent. Glad you posted the info.
Looking forward to the *numbers* of those attending to being reported as extremely low.
I have written and called everyone on the *the list*. I have as yet, received NO reply or acknowledgement. Talk about battening down the hatches. These ELECTED officials are operating outside their roles.

Got there around 1:00 - shuttles from Cabela’s were great - saw some video’s from this morning - wish I’d have been there - great turnout.
Dropped off letters to the six Legislative leaders along with my Senator and Rep. (Governor Malloy’s office, too).
Today we came with only letters - no pitchforks. This time.
