The recent report by the Connecticut House Republicans raises some major concerns about the manner in which dangerous felons are released back into the population. It seems clear that this policy must be reexamined and immediate steps taken to ensure public safety.
The early release program was a tragic stain on the rule of Chris Donovan and liberal Democrats in the Legislature, said Lisa Wilson Foley. "Early release of violent criminals, a record tax increase and more punishing regulations on business is the Donovan record."
"This change in the law would never have occurred without the support of Speaker Donovan who set the legislative agenda."
"The actions by the Democrats who followed Speaker Donovan at every turn have reaped some bitter fruit for citizens who now live in fear of violent criminals being set free for purely political reasons."
"Imagine what Chris Donovan would be like in Congress? That is why I am encouraged by many voters who are supporting my candidacy as the common sense answer to Chris Donovan’s big government approach which values the rights of criminals over law abiding citizens, unions over the private sector and out of control government spending over hard working tax payers."
