Tell your Representative what you think of their vote on Justice McDonald!
When Justice McDonald was nominated by Governor Malloy, 46 of Connecticut’s most prominent and respected lawyers sent a letter to the legislature that spoke to the dangers of confirming judges based on partisan concerns or because of one decision. They said doing so “threatens the critical component of the checks and balances that undergird our democratic system of government.”
But that is exactly what happened yesterday when the House voted on Justice Andrew McDonald’s confirmation. The House approved the confirmation of Justice Andrew McDonald on a vote of just 75-74 with every Republican but one voting no. With five Democrats also voting no, the Republicans are on their way to stopping the confirmation of Justice McDonald simply because he was nominated by the sitting Democrat Governor.
Now is the time to make sure your Representative hears from you about their vote!
