March update
So go ahead and listen to the HYV mentors from Smith College with their privileged liberal arts education that costs $75,000 a year (that’s 2.5 times the New London annual per capita income of $28,450) as they prey upon ignorance and raw emotions with their demands to defund us. They are woke and know what best for the rest of us.

John Russell and Kat Goulart are collecting signatures to reverse the repeal of the 80 Cop Ordinance.


Support from The Day

The vote is likely to be demoralizing to city police, and needlessly so. The council controls the purse strings and approves the budget. That includes setting the police ranks, whether the 80-staffing ordinance remained or not. But by putting a slash through that number the council has picked sides, and it’s not the side of police.
