LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

To the CT ACLU,

You claim: "Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and the fundamental right upon which all our civil liberties rest. The ACLU works to protect and expand Americans' freedom to vote."

Yet King Ned of CT has suspended voting rights and the ACLU is silent; Taxation in CT towns without a vote https://portal.ct.gov/-/media/Office-of-the-Governor/Executive-Orders/Lamont-Executive-Orders/Executive-Order-No-7HH.pdf what can the ACLU be counted on to do?

In my town, a 4 person majority on our board of finance is about to pass a tax increase without a vote, authorized by edict from the wannabe king and dictator, his "excellency" the governor

In the CT constitution, SEC. 7. The general assembly may provide by law for voting in the choice of any officer to be elected or upon any question to be voted on at an election by qualified voters of the state who are unable to appear at the polling place on the day of election because of absence from the city or town of which they are inhabitants or because of sickness, or physical disability or because the tenets of their religion forbid secular activity.

The law that grants powers from the legislative branch to the governor can NOT exceed what’s required by the CT constitution.

Is there anything the ACLU can do? We have food distribution, grocery shopping, can go to CVS, we can buy beer, and on May 20th get a haircut.

Certainly VOTING is a right and essential. If the ACLU stands for anything, this is the cause of the century.
