Weston RTC Statement Regarding Political Violence

January 2021 

Statement from the Weston Republican Town Committee 

The past 10 months have been as upsetting, and unsettling, as any period in U.S.  history. 

The coronavirus came to our shores and quickly grew to a global pandemic that  continues to kill and mutate. Racial tension has increased throughout our nation,  creating conflict and violence. Across America, looters destroyed their own  neighborhoods as a form of protest. Rioters tore down statues on college campuses, in  city squares, and in our nation’s capital. Recently, we witnessed a group of  militants storm and deface the U.S. Capitol building, leaving several dead in their wake. 

As we’ve seen all too often, these domestic acts of terrorism can originate from all  points of the ideological spectrum. But no matter who lights the match, it’s up to all of us  to put out the fire.  

We must denounce every act of violence and terrorism – no matter the source. We must  teach our children, while reminding ourselves, that the path to policy change is through  the legislative, legal, and electoral processes. Our Founding Fathers declared and  fought for these rights over 240 years ago, and we’ve vigilantly protected them to this  day. Republicans have participated in and support non-violent protests as an effective  way to achieve social and political goals. 

Let’s work together to denounce hatred and violence of any type, and from all corners of  our country.

Kim Healy – Let them Play!

by Kim Healy

Connecticut legislators need to intervene and ensure that our state’s high school football players are permitted to play this season with full teams. The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) announced that it would follow the state’s Department of Public Health order, which would prevent these young athletes from playing this season. This is not fair, nor reasonable, and it is parents who should decide what is best for their children, not the state.
