Shelton Democrats Respond To Violence in Washington
January 8, 2021
The actions displayed Wednesday at the Washington Capitol Building constitute an act of sedition. And horrifyingly, this insurrection was incited and led by the sitting president of the United States with help from Senators Cruz, Hawley and Scalise.
The president and every federal official take an oath of office solemnly swearing to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
The people that stormed our nations’ Capitol are domestic terrorists. The people who incited them to perform this act are also domestic terrorists.
We need to hold these people accountable and defend our country including the President and members of Congress.

City voters have resoundingly denied proposed revisions to the City Charter, according to unofficial tallies provided by the Republican Town Committee that do not yet include all absentee ballots.
Residents — by more that twice as many votes — denied proposed changes which included elimination of the Board of Apportionment and Taxation, increase of party maximums for elected positions, formation of a citywide technology committee and allowing the aldermen to bond 3 percent of the municipal budget without referendum.

Shelton Buses FOIA Fiasco ONGOING
April 3, 2020
In clear violation of Federal laws, Mayor Lauretti and the City Government have stalled
efforts to fill a FOIA request made in November, 2019. His decision to take over school
buses was a failure from the start - no buses for first day, and unverified drivers.
Residents demand "SHOW US THE SAVINGS."
The Shelton DTC's Chair, Dave Gioello, has been pursuing the FOIA on behalf of concerned parents and continues to move the legal process forward during the current crisis.
