I don't believe this story at all. I watched Fox News last night and Jimbo was on it. He said the story was false and then announced he is running in a Democratic primary against Obama for President! He also announced that the Burturlas would hold the postions of Attorney General and Secretary of Homeland Security.

Jimbo always thinks big!

WE'RE BACK !!!!!!
The people in the streets are all talking and they are all saying the same things........

harkins is overrated..... the same unions that turned their back on the Miron machine are about to turn their back on Harkins.......

It's politics in Stratford folks......
Harkins .......nothing planned on Shakespeare
Harkins....... LOng Beach West..... against voter's wishes
Harkins ....a phony, plain and simple.... it doesn't mean that I am saying he is a bad guy, because that is not the truth, but.....he just isn't a good politician.

I think you are right on one thing which is Harkins is overrated. I am thinking when he was in the minority in the state rep postion he could hide as he never had to make a tough decision. You cannot hide as a Mayor and we are seeing how weak a Manager he is. The budget he submitted and passed was an embarrasment and an insult to the taxpayers. He was not elected to rubber stamp union proposals which is what he did.

However, to your disappointment the Miron troops will never be back!

Give Jimmy a break, the guy has to eat!(and try and keep his old man out of jail). My guess is his unemployment checks are about to run out so he needs to skim some campaign money fast. Berchem & Moses wanted nothing to do with him after he was kicked out of Town Hall, so that option is out. And how on earth can he think about hanging his shingle up again? His practice was lame before he was mayor and now with what everyone knows about him and his 4th tier law degree I doubt anyone will be lining up for "quality" legal advice!

Jim can take a lesson from his family friend & Democratic mentor- our illustrious A.G. Any statements made during his time as mayor could easily be explained as simple cases of where Jim "misspoke" or "misacted" . The Long Beach thing, the Army Engine Plant thing, the Animal Shelter thing, the Brooke thing, the Shakespeare Theater thing, the Justin thing, the Christian thing, the McNeil/Soto thing, the Buturla things, the Taxes Are Lower thing, and any other thing where he may have been criticized for his words or actions. He has my vote for State Rep! What has Kelley done? Jim ran a great town - down

Omitting the rest of your comment..you are wrong about LBW I and those that took the time to read the so called agreement should have realized listened to those who knew that was no SALE but in fact a Offer/Option to purchase with so many w-opens(wide opens) it wasn't worth the paper it was written on. In addition to which the ballot was fraudulent as well. Despite warnings of other's & myself, those cognizant of the true nature of this scam, the dumb dumbs voted for a bogus sale I said long ago would never come to fruition..as it was Merely an loose Option to screw up Stratford and nothing more! There is alot to the real deal few know about...but that's another nightmare!
Heard Kevin is a Sweetheart and has my vote, that is for sure infact Kevin Kelly has 10 votes from my family alone!
Bravo Kelly 2010!!!

CO Sorry, Phyllis. Usually agree with you. While I would NEVER vote for Miron for anything, Kelly is not a "sweetheart." I have personal experience with that. I am not a person who enjoys being lied to or having sneaky, cheap political tricks done behind my back. Choice between Miron and Kelly? I vote "NONE OF THE ABOVE." There should be a much better candidate out there somewhere -- hopefully --

John Dempsey??? HUH???? Even worse than one of the other choices!!!! Do you mean to tell me that there is not ONE honest person of integrity who wants to run for this position? If Miron, Kelly and Dempsey are the choices, the only option for me would be to leave the district!

I thought some guy from Shelton is also running for the Republicans. Don't know about him, but I would give him a close look. Under the circumstances, I would have to say that BOTH Stratford political parties are not worth scratch. Shelton is no prize, but this is a terrible situation!

"Former Mayor James R. Miron is considering running for State Senate in the 21st District ..."

As the failed former mayor of Stratford, Miron has already proved the "Peter Principle"; once again, he's in over his head.

Miron got beat up really bad in the last election. I guess he want's to get his Asx beat again. Now all he needs is Loschiavo as a campaign manager.
