Final Days for the Ferries? Employees Given Pink Slips

Jul 15, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Patch.com

Will the Connecticut DOT make good on its November 2010 announcement warning of elimination of our historic ferries crossing the Connecticut River? Yet another sad indication of the possibility of ending that scenic transport happened yesterday, when ferry employees in both Chester-Hadlyme and Rocky Hill received termination notices as of Aug.

Malloy on his rampage to further destroy Connecticut economy. This week the Malloy administration announced that Cigna Insurance was given a 50 million dollar tax break and a 18 million dollar loan for hiring a 120 new employess by relocating their Pa. operations here. The same day Electric Boat announced 140 layoffs. Giving a net gain of 20 jobs to the state. The 20 new hires cost the state 50 million dollars in tax revenue and the 18 million loan to Cigna will more than likley turn into a grant at the tax payers expense.

2 days later Uniliever in Clinton announced their leaving the state, putting over 200 people out of work, adding to the number of companies who have already fled the state since Malloy took office. No doubt many more are contemplating leaving Connecticut for more business friendly states.

To be fair Gov. Rell I liked her, screwed the people of Connecticut by buying all those new rail cars and by adding further to the deficit with the new bus pathway from New Britian to Hartford, both of these costing the Taxpayers 100`s of millions of dollars.

Malloy is a strong supporter of O`bama, both are Socialist who have shown their blatant disregard for what the people want, they just don`t care. At this rate Malloy will kill off the middleclass leaving Connecicut for the rich and the poor, eventually the rich will slide down to what was once the middleclass as more of their monies are taken and given to the poor as state welfare rolls expand. It`s Malloy`s version of O`bama wealth distribution.

For those who voted for this clown, I hope your happy as now your going to pay the price for your stupidity. I was a registered Democrat who is now an Independant and would suggest that all who are upset that that their party has been hijacked by the Socialist go to their Town Clerks office and change their affilliation to Independant, if enough people do this it should send a strong message to the leadership of their displeasure..
