Politicians and the mainstream media haven’t seemed to discuss immigration policy much since the 2008 campaigns for federal offices, when they made it a prominent and seemingly critical issue. Recently, however, President Obama issued an executive order outlining a new deportation policy less aggressive towards some young, undocumented immigrants that meet his criteria.

Team Russell Set to Win Norwich, Majority of City Council Seats

Team Russell has thrown its hat in the ring to save the people of Norwich from its own City Manager, Mayor and Council. Having seen his property taxes double in the last five years, enough was enough – Bill was running for mayor.

He will be joined on the ticket with Libertarian candidates for City Council Cyndia Shook, Michael Holman, Ashley Pryski, Kyle Degray, and Chandler Alfred. This is the first time the Libertarian Party of Norwich will be actively running and fully ballot qualified for a majority of city council seats in Connecticut.

According to Russell, the goal is to “turn Norwich right side up”.  Norwich was selected by the Libertarian Party due to a large volume of complaints from citizens and an unusual set of circumstances that would make it an excellent test case to show what Libertarians will do in office. For example:

- Tax foreclosures and taxes continue to reach record levels

-The city purchased an ambulance to promote tourism

-Norwich, a small city of approximately 60,000 people, spent $350,000 on an armored police vehicle

-Norwich currently operates a golf course and an ice rink it cannot afford.

-Norwich’s City Charter effectively renders the City Manager in charge – the City Council and Mayor effectively have no responsibility or accountability absent a charter revision, one that Team Russell will implement from day one.

It’s official. Bill Russell collected enough signatures to be placed on the ballot for Mayor of Norwich.

We have scheduled a meeting to form the Libertarian Norwich Town Committee. Anyone who wants to be involved in starting the committee or meet up with us in general to see about getting involved can attend. We’ll be meeting at Old Tymes in Norwich at 3PM, May 16th. Anyone looking to run for City Council should also be in attendance.

Happy New Year!
