In addition to our events and actions we will begin posting pieces regarding the Constitution both State and Federal as well as informational pieces about a wide range of topics.
In the last month we have taken action regarding 2 Executive Orders Governor Malloy has issued. Executive Order #9 attempted to unionize child care providers (Daycare workers) in the state. And Executive Order #10 attempted to unionize all home health aids in the state. We The People Of Connecticut has taken action regarding both of these unconstitutional Executive Orders.
The action taken so far regarding EO 9 include an open letter to Governor Malloy notifying him that he is in violation of the Connecticut Constitution and asking him to rescind it immediately. This was done on September 26th 2011.
Executive Order #10 similarly attempts to unionize all Personal Care Attendants. Which include in-home healthcare providers for the elderly or disabled. The Governor was notified as to the unconstitutional nature of this Executive Oder as well with a letter outlining the violations and again asking that the order be rescinded. This took place on October 3rd 2011.
Here is where we catch up to our current action. Yesterday, October 17th, We The People Of Connecticut formally petitioned the Connecticut Legislature to begin formal inquires into the unconstitutional actions of the Governor regarding Executive Orders 9 & 10. We are asking for an official bi-partisan inquiry and for the legislature to take the appropriate action to make these Executive Orders conform the Connecticut's State Constitution.
We are always looking for people to help us. As this organization gets bigger (as it has been doing over the last few months) it is becoming harder for us to focus on what we need to do. If you would like to help, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking for all sorts of help, we are spreading ourselves way too thin!! So if you are thinking you would like to get involved some how and politics as usual is not your cup of tea, try going in a constitutional direction!! We could use your help.
