To The Editor:

A crystal ball has been dusted off at the capitol and apparently Gov. Malloy along with the Bond Commission have predicted that the new governor of Connecticut requires an additinal toll study believing the last four studies somehow are not sufficient, this new study comes with a borrowed 10 million dollar price tag which “we the people” have to repay. Obviously the good ole crystal ball is spot on as is our current governor’s and bond commission’s thought process but what if the new governor has other ideas besides tolls or wishes for a different kind of study or believes the last four studies are sufficient what then? What do our state representatives and senators think?

It does seem odd that this was proposed and passed while the people’s representatives were out of session, very odd indeed. It matters not if you support tolls or not this decision should have been left for the incoming governor and our legislators not the exiting Malloy and the Bond Commission. People of Connecticut this is our own doing this is our fault the blame falls upon us “WE THE PEOPLE” elected our current leader not once but twice.

Regardless of what political party you belong or agree with we can agree this party isn’t working for us the people of Connecticut this election I hope Connecticut voters will vote in favor of change not the same ole same ole.
