Well hello there!
It's been a while since I've had the time to write a little blog on whus.org, so I thought I'd put a quick note up before I get too busy again.
This week on The Gay Agenda (Sunday nights at midnight, through 2am Monday morning), we will be talking more about the upcoming election. We'll focus on the federal Congressional race and the local state senate race this time.
I will also explain how the house and senate work, and probably get all angry about the 420 bills that have been passed by the House of Representatives but have been held up by the Senate. I haven't done a big long radio rant since The Politics of Singing over the summer, so this will be cathartic for me.
Of course, we will also be playing lots and lots of political punk, folk, and hip hop... expect to hear Roy Zimmerman, Ludacris, Mista Mayday, Bad Religion, Aus Rotten, Against Me! and much more...
And don't forget, if you're usually asleep by midnight on Sundays, you can listen to all of our previous broadcasts if you click here.
Quick links to local races:
If you are registered to vote in Storrs, Mansfield, Canterbury, Brooklyn, Putnam, Scotland, Thompson, Windham, or Willimantic, you will be voting for the state senator in the 29th district. Democrat Donald Williams has held this seat since 1993, and was all set to run uncontested until conservative Independent John Hallbergh stepped up to run against him.
If you are registered to vote in most of eastern Connecticut, including Storrs and Mansfield and Willimantic (find your district here), you will vote in district 2. Democrat Joe Courtney has held this seat in congress since 2006, and his opponents are Green Party candidate G. Scott Deshefy, Republican Janet Peckinpaugh, and Libertarian Dan Reale.
