Greenwich's Harry Fisher has an interesting letter to the editor out today, detailing the George Soros-funded money coming into Greenwich's, and other municipal elections, to support the "Indivisible" parties. If you still believe that these people have nothing but improvements to Tod's Point on their agenda well, you're naive.
Here's an excerpt, but read the whole thing:
To the Editor:
Non-residents, and their money, have entered local Greenwich politics with a clear objective to influence our election for town offices, and by extension, policy for years to come. In over 30 years of local involvement, I have never witnessed anything like it. If successful, the attack
would have a negative impact on your tax bill.
Hard evidence can be found in filings by the campaign for Sandy Litvack, Democrat for First
Selectman, whose campaign took in 62 percent of contributions through September 30th from non-residents, versus zero for Republican Peter Tesei. We not know how much went to the two parties in town, but my bet is a similar pattern. And all should watch for the next set of reports due this week.
That money is being spent. Make no mistake, these are highly coordinated and expensive efforts utilizing print, pre-recorded robo calls, social media, video and banner ad insertion to your computer and phone, and activists interacting to a high degree. I wish we could follow the money to determine who is paying, and who is being paid, but we do know some things.
