To the Editor:
The Secretary of (the) State (SOS) recently sent out hundreds of thousands of requests for absentee ballots. More than 20,000 never made it to their destination because the out of state mailing company she hired did not mail them. It leads me to believe that our Hartford Democratic administration is even more incompetent than ever. It is no secret the state of Connecticut is in dire straits when it comes to our finances. Every dollar counts. The total amount spent on the mailing etc. is not readily available but to be assured a family of four could easily live handsomely for several years on it. What did it produce? A royal challenge for the town clerks offices across the state. The Shelton Town Clerk’s Office was swamped. They had to open, check the registry, fold ballots, instructions and stuff and mail some 3,000 envelopes. Almost half of which were never returned.
