Help us take the Connecticut Republican Party back!

Should we prevail and return the party to it's rightful owners (registered Republicans) no one will need to spend a day downloading data to find this stuff.

    Payroll and staff expenses should be there too.

    We'll put it all online on the ctgop.org site.

    We've allowed poor stewardship of our donors dollars, and it has to stop.

    It's no wonder our base is dismayed, disgusted, disenchanted, and disengaged.
The state party should answer to, and behave like our Town Committees.

Our Town Committees work, they win more often than they lose (we control over 
half the municipal governments in CT right now) and not one of them would
put up with what  you'll see below.

Obviously the party by-laws need some looking after.
The office of Chair simply has too much autonomous authority without seeking so much as
an "Okay that sounds good"  from the committee itself.

In fact we should insist on some changes regardless of who takes the chair, if I do we'll move
quickly to do so,  just in case I drop dead or something.

You can decide for yourselves what expenditures were unnecessary; but of the 271K you'll see
here I'd bet you'll agree that at least 150K of it was a waste.

Expenditures of a Dubious Value.

Why only 9% of Connecticut Republican Party money is spent directly on candidates.
