State of CT Senate and House of Representatives: Vote yes for HB-5724

      Jennifer Buchanan

      Bridgeport

This bill is to extend an existing provision that prohibits municipal employees from serving on a municipal board of finance except where permitted by charter or home rule ordinance. The citizens of Bridgeport have asked the City Council to comply with the City Charter that prohibits a city employee from being elected to the City Council. The city attorney has ruled the state law supersedes the City Charter. The passing of Bill HB-5724 will close that loop hole and allow the city of Bridgeport to elect a governing body with no conflict of interests. The state of Connecticut will only benefit from having cities that have sound governance policies in place.

To:
State of CT Senate and House of Representatives
Connecticut Governor
Connecticut State Senate
Connecticut State House
Vote yes for HB-5724

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      We have one-party rule in CT. We have to get rid of the corruption at every level and support "the people" running government again.
