Money talks and so does Jim Miron's campaign debt

There are 109 comments on the www.ctpost.com story from Jun 6, 2010, titled Money talks and so does Jim Miron's campaign debt . In it, www.ctpost.com reports that:

Jim Miron, Stratford's first and former mayor, raked in $98,932.72 last year from his supporters. His campaign committee spent money on consultants, direct marketing and printing, from campaign literature to lawn signs. And when it was over, Miron's campaign committee was $31,468.30 in debt.

It's unclear when or how Miron's committee will repay the vendors the campaign has stiffed. That's because campaign committees are not like regular debtors. And Miron has no personal liability for his campaign's deficit ...

He doesn't have to. He can steal it from everyone in the State this time:

The only person I know who can match Miron for chutzpah is Fred Musante. Don't they make a lovely couple?

maybe the businesses he stiffed should go after him the way the grave stone families wen after his daddy. to say he is not responsible is ridiculous, someone had to have an authorization to place the order-so that is who they should go after.
of course he will go after public financing, both he and his daddy need a boat load of money to pay people back.

jim miron should NOT be representative of anyone- he can't manage his own finances, he couldn't manage the town's, why in the name of hell would ANYONE want in involved with the state??????

look forward to reading about the larceny charges against him...such a deserving and fitting move.

Miron’s mayoral campaign now promises to pay Andrew Graphics $300 a month until it clears the debt.

Blumy, CORRECT. And Judge, I am happy for everyone who is NOT owed money by the Miron campaign. This family is happy to stiff people, as we all have seen in the past. Good luck getting your money back, folks.

I agree with this and brought this to light why did Blummie let this man slide for so long then campaign time comes..time for court..too coincidental? McMahon although a "nice lady is a ding a ling..not qualified and clueless. Leaving Peter Schiff who had someone listened to him since 2001 we probably would not be in this economic mess..Look up on Youtube
Peter Schiff was right

Last thing we need is another Dodd!!

Jim Miron for Senate The state's 2011 budget is projected to be in deficit by about $700 million, and a $3.8 billion shortfall is estimated for 2012. We need a Governor and General Assembly singularly focused on spending

Jim Miron for Senate We need to work as a State to create more jobs and create opportunities to grow emerging areas such bio-tech, alternate energy, green building and entertainment. In the meantime at least 2.5 million Americans who lost thier jobless benefits can eat and feed their families.

Suppost Jim Miron! I do !!!!!

Stratford was a much better LEADER then Harkins. Everyone would rather have a leader that at least made decisions , even if you didn't always agree, rather then a puppet for republican power people in town

“Rest assured that you are first on the list to be paid. 100 percent of any money received by the campaign is going to be allocated to Andrew Graphics,” Miron tells Fiorillo in his February e-mail.

Andrew Graphics has been (unwillingly)supporting for a long time now.

He should have fired himself the last day to collect an extra 6 months severance and paid back his campaign that way. Why didn't he think like that... haha

Jim's adult life has been dedicated to public service.

He is a proud and decorated veteran of the United States Army 82nd Airborne Division and 2nd Infantry Division. In addition to stateside posts he also served overseas in the Republic of Korea.

Jim has worked in state government in both the executive and judicial branches.

In 1994 Jim Miron started and built a successful business from scratch whose purpose was to advocate for people.

Jim has been involved in many different community enhancement efforts from serving as a volunteer on Town Commissions to starting a not-for-profit that raised funds for local causes.

Most recently, Jim served a four year term as Stratford's first Mayor.

Jim is passionate about fixing what is broken in government. He wants to work to make Connecticut a better place to do business and help create a culture that fosters economic growth. He wants to work to save our environment, help our veterans and be the kind of elected representative that is no nonsense, straight talking and works for his constituents.

Jim Miron was elected Stratford’s first Mayor in a historic election held in November 2005 in that he squeaked in with only 34% of the vote and completed his tenure in December 2009 due to his crushing defeat by John Harkins who barely had to run a campaign.

Like TR says:

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

James Miron is the MAN in the arena fighting the good fight

I gotta admit, he sure knows how to come up short.
