Hovey manages to offend many groups every time she opens her mouth. She tells people to vote for her instead of "another tax and spend democrat." She puts down Bridgeport constantly and yet makes sure to point out that her husband is a Bridgeport firefighter (got to get those firefighter votes). She says she's against public funding even though she used it 2 years ago. She says she wouldn't bother our busy police department about sign vandalism, and yet we hear from her neighbors that she flooded town hall with complaints about them.

Sure wish Ms. Hovey would put an end to our and her suffering and just open her home to inspectors.... if there is nothing there she gets the last laugh, if there's something there.....the public gets the last laugh...simply enough

At least, unlike her opponent (who is evidently called 'mount' for more than one reason), SHE doesn't rip off her skirt for the teacher's union every time it says "boo".

This is a perfect example of the report abuse option, this kind of content should not be allowed, I know Topix is a free for all but this woman is a wife and mother and volunteers for her community. Don't like her or her politics? fine, but this trash is disgusting.

The Newtown Bee Endorsed Mount:

“Once again, we are endorsing the candidacy of Democrat Michele Mount for election in the 112th Assembly District. As a member of the Town Council in Monroe and as a former legislative liaison for the City of Bridgeport, Ms Mount has a grasp of the issues and challenges facing Connecticut's towns and cities. Her advocacy for property tax relief, support for education, and investment in tourism and tax incentives for small business reflect the interests of Newtown and Monroe. She is articulate and can think on her feet, as we saw in The Bee's October 19 Candidates' Debate. She is truly representative of our towns."

Mount has been fighting to stop rising property tax and reform. She wants more to come from the State not from property tax payers. Hovey in 8 years never even tried to lower property taxes.

Wow, that is a totally baseless and vulgar comment.

Whenever anyone in Monroe supports passing the budget they are swooped down upon, bullied and belittled. But it's exactly what I've seen with Hovey's supporters. Get out your guns & shoot us all down.

Do you realize this sort of thing happens all the time? I'm not dismissing it, but do you really think that this is some sort of felony?!? People do work without permits ALL THE TIME. I don't know her, don't think she's done much of anything for monroe which I've said in previous posts, but do you really think that this amounts to anything? I'm sure that everything you've ever done in your life was perfect. Ever pay cash for something? Hell, if I can find a way to save some of my own money from the taxman I go for it. Do you own your own business? Do you report every dime you make? Every deduction is spot on? If so thats a first. C'mon, be honest.
Talk about self-righteous justification! Where should we draw the line? I agree with your comment about Hovey doing nothing for the Town of Monroe, but I don't agree that small businesses have the right to cheat the system. Do you run your business out of the home and have trucks parked all over the yard? That's illegal too, altho you'd never know it since it's never enforced in monroe.
