Above is a decent article on the recent house vote to repeal the death penalty. Please get involved, the Senate is next to vote on this, let the members of the CT Senate know in no uncertain terms that we will not vote for anyone who now votes to abolish the Death Penalty. We will remember thier vote in our voting booths in the next elections; this is an core issue of public safety and there is no more important decision that as lawmakers they will make..
Below is a link to a listing of how each member of the house voted. Bear in mind that Mike Lawlor as co chair of the judiciary committee, has had a great deal of influence over the entire democratic legislative vote on abolishment. He is an ex- prosecutor and has been vocal against the DP for many years. We will have to rely on the people of East haven his consituants, to remember his abysmal voting record in all matters of criminal judicial safety in the next local election.
