GBT - Greater Bridgeport Transit

#SOSTF
Connecticut’s transportation system is dependent upon the State’s Special Transportation Fund (STF). Without funding from the STF, bus and rail service i...s reduced, and then ends. Today, the STF is nearly out of money and the future of transit looks grim. This creates serious problems for anyone who depends on the bus or train in Connecticut. If you, your family and friends, your employees, your students, your clients or customers use the bus, now is the time to contact your legislator.

HOW TO CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATOR
Here’s where you can find your legislator and share your thoughts - http://bit.ly/sostfct

Once you find your representative, make sure you click on his or her title to send an email or you can click on your legislator’s name to go to his or her webpage where you can find a phone number to call to share your thoughts.

"They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence. We call BS!
They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. We call BS!
They say guns a...re just tools like knives and are as dangerous as cars. We call BS!"

The LAST thing we need to stop funding is transportation in Connecticut.

Having already canceled $4.3 billion in transportation projects because the Special Transportation Fund is headed for insolvency, Malloy on Thursday said he was... optimistic that the administration will have additional TAR funding to release later this spring once the legislature acts to strengthen the Special Transportation Fund.

"This happens nowhere else other than the United States of America — this epidemic of mass slaughter, this scourge of school shooting after school shooting... W...e are responsible for a level of mass atrocity that happens in this country with zero parallel anywhere else."

When someone tells you that you can't support responsible gun ownership AND gun reform, take a breath, find your courage, and speak truth to bullshit. Both are ...possible. At the exact same time. Don't let people frame the debate for you.

We know refugees inspire you, but last year, you inspired refugees with your amazing show of support at the Run for Refugees! Help more refugees attend Sunday'...s Run For Refugees 2018 with a donation at http://bit.ly/2niXLtw.

Joseph from the Congo, wrote a beautiful note in tribute to you:

"The joy of finding ourselves in the USA, resuming our lives, peace at last in our hearts and a smile on our face because we can finally plan our lives and guarantee a stable future for our children. For me, seeing old people, mothers, men, young people, children, babies, and even people’s dogs climb that hill...with a single message that I felt: 'You are not alone, we are with you.'

What a show of love! What a show of support! What a show of solidarity! Along the way, even though I had a smile on my face, my heart was flooded with tears to see you climb that hill with us despite the weather, take time out of your life to run and walk, covering 5K with us. On behalf of all Refugees, my family, and myself our great and heartfelt thanks. For me, you are my HEROES."

Be someone's hero. Show refugees you care. Donate now at http://bit.ly/2niXLtw -- and then share!

"Of the Democrats that are up in 2018, I guarantee you there are many of us who will not agree with as much as 20% of what they say and stand for but I promise you that you will disagree with 100% of what their potential replacement stands for. We cannot afford to be purists.

We have the power. We have people behind us, we just have to harness that power."

- Senator Kamala Harris
