Message from AFSCME President Lee Saunders
important for our communities to know that, as public service
workers, we never quit... Our streets will always need cleaning,
our neighborhoods will always demand safety. We do this work not
to get rich, but because it matters... The way public service
workers speak with one voice is through our union. Its through
AFSCME the police and firefighters can improve life saving services
we provide our communities... If the Supreme Court sides with
special interests in Friedrichs
v. California Teachers Association it could diminish our right
to a strong voice on the job. But we'll never quit fighting for
our rights and our voice. Without a strong voice for public service
workers, communities all across the country will suffer.
We're AFSCME and We Never Quit .

Understand the issue and realize the court ruling does
not mean she didn't do it..
Immunity is a doctrine in U.S. federal law that arises
in cases brought against state officials under 42 U.S.C Section
1983 and against federal officials under Bivens v. Six Unknown
Named Agents, 403 U.S. 388 (1971).
Qualified immunity, when applicable, shields government
officials from liability for the violation of an individual's
federal constitutional rights. This grant of immunity is available
to state or federal employees performing discretionary functions
where their actions, even if later found to be unlawful, did not
violate "clearly established law". Click

I would like to recognize the outstanding and efficient
professional efforts of the New London Police Department
for the investigation and identification of the person
responsible for last weeks tragic, hit and run fatallity,
on route 32 in front of Connecticut College. The efforts
of the first arriving officers and investigative personnel
were significant and effective, however, the investigation
was greatly enhanced by the extra efforts of Sergeant
Kevin McBride, all involved personnel are recognized for
the determination, care and commitment to safety in the
City of New London.
Also recognized for outstanding community efforts are
police department personnel, Brenda Flemming, Officer
Max Bertsch, the Police Union and other members of the
New London Police department for their significant and
committed efforts in the "Adopt-A-Family" holiday

quite impressive for the police to proactively show and
display such a caring and empathetic attitude in this
Please share these incidents of city workers going above
and beyond and ensure my office is advised of the many
