High school auditorium dedicated to Brozek By Kyle Swartz The North Haven Citizen

“Pat Brozek had few, if any, mere acquaintances,” said former North Haven superintendent Dr. Mary Jane Sheehy of her past colleague, former assistant superintendent Patricia Brozek. “Instead, she had friends.” Many of Brozek’s friends gathered Nov. 13 at North Haven High School’s auditorium for its formal dedication in honor of Brozek, who died unexpectedly while in office last May at 62. A series of speakers remembered Brozek during the evening ceremony, before

the official unveiling of a new plaque outside the auditorium dedicating it in her name. “Pat was born in 1950 and passed away in 2012,” Sheehy said onstage before an audience of several dozen. “How did she live her ‘dash’? I mean the dash between 1950-2012.” Sheehy recalled that, during her “dash,” Brozek worked in North Haven’s education system for 39 years, beginning as a teacher. In almost a decade of employment, she also served as assistant principal, athletic direc-

Firefighters Jason Cusack, left, and Anthony DeSimone load bottled water onto a fire truck to bring to their North Haven station Friday, part of an effort by firefighters from area towns to bring relief to people in the Rockaway Point area of New York’s Queens borough who are still suffering after the damage of Hurricane Sandy.

Volunteers help region with Sandy recovery By Richie Rathsack Special to The Citizen With the power back on for most people in Connecticut, some local organizations are turning their attention to helping residents of neighboring states. On Friday, a group from the New Haven County Firefighters Emerald Society, a benevolent group made up of firefighters of Irish decent throughout the region — including North Haven — spent the day shopping for supplies

for people in the Rockaway area of New York City. Anthony DeSimone, president of International Association of Firefighters Local 2987 in North Haven, said the national group put out a message asking for various supplies in demand in the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. “It’s just devastating,” DeSimone said of hearing reports and seeing pictures of the damage.

In its eighth year of promoting literacy in the community by sponsoring a dictionary project, the North Haven Rotary Club recently distributed hundreds of Webster paperback dictionaries to public school children in the third grade at the four elementary schools. At the Clintonville Elementary School, Rotarian and Chairwoman of the Board of Education, Anita Anderson, attended the event and expressed her gratitude on behalf of the Board, as did the building principal at each of the schools. Serving as the event’s chairman for eight years, Rotarian Brian Coughlin described the global scope of Rotary International, as well as the North Haven club’s focus on service to others. He was followed by Michael Hallahan, the club’s president, who challenged each class to locate words and use them in sentences. Nearly a dozen Rotarians participated in the distribution of the dictionaries, held on Oct. 23 and 24. Some members explained the origins and use of the text, as well as its lasting value, despite today’s focus on technology. Text and photo courtesy of David Marchesseault, Rotary PR Chairman

Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. It has officially been an annual tradition since 1863, when, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens,” to be celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. As a federal and popular holiday in the United States, Thanksgiving is one of the major holidays of the year. Together with Christmas and the New Year, Thanksgiving is a part of the broader holiday season. The event that some Americans commonly call the “First Thanksgiving” was celebrated by the Pilgrims to give thanks to God for guiding them safely to the New World. The first Thanksgiving feast was celebrated in 1621 and lasted three days, providing enough food for 53 Pilgrims and 90 Native Americans. The feast consisted of fish (cod, eels, and bass) and shellfish (clams, lobster, and mussels), wild fowl (ducks, geese, swans, and turkey), venison, berries and fruit, vegetables (peas, pumpkin, beetroot, and wild or cultivated onion), harvest grains (barley and wheat), and beans, dried Indian maize or corn, and squash — all washed down with homemade wine. Two traditional treats were absent: cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. One ate with one’s fingers from wooden trenchers or scooped up food with crude clamshell spoons. The first documented thanksgiving feasts in territory currently belonging to the United States were conducted by Spaniards in the 16th century. Thanksgiving services were routine in what was to become the Commonwealth of Virginia as early as 1607, with the first permanent settlement of Jamestown, Virginia holding

a thanksgiving in 1610. The New England colonists were accustomed to regularly celebrating “thanksgivings” — day of prayer thanking God for blessings such as military victory or the end of a drought. Today, the holiday is focused on giving thanks, spending time with family and friends, feasting and gorging on turkey and stuffing, cranberry sauce and vegetables, apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Also, people attending worship services, roads and airports crowded with travelers and vacationers,

Malloy: election results should buoy Dems By Mark Pazniokas The Connecticut Mirror

In a prelude to the upcoming legislative session and his 2014 reelection campaign, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Thursday that Democrats should be heartened by

the failure of Republicans to make state legislative gains in Tuesday’s elections by running against his $1.5 billion tax increase. “Tough times require tough decisions that are not immediately popular,” said Malloy, a Democrat whose


job-approval rating languishes below 50 percent as he approaches the midpoint in his first term. “But people in Connecticut understand what leadership is.” Malloy was not on the ballot, but the GOP legislative minority built an election plan around mailers and ads connecting Democratic legislators to the governor and the taxes they raised to ad-

dress an inherited deficit of more than $3 billion. Democrats retained their majorities of 99-52 in the House and 22-14 in the Senate. “Democrats should have a takeaway. And that is you should not be afraid to make tough decisions, particularly if you are transparent about those decisions, if you explain why those decisions were necessary,” Malloy

Malloy Continued from page 4

J. Brendan Sharkey of Hamden, who is slated to take over as House speaker in January, said the GOP’s message was heard and rejected by voters. “I think the Republicans did make it clear that they were making it a referendum on the governor and his leadership,” Sharkey said. “They clearly were trying to make that the issue, and it didn’t stick.” “The lesson I draw is that the Connecticut electorate is

sophisticated,” Williams said. “They weren’t in the mood for vicious political attacks.” Malloy has reason to be heartened by the legislative results, but he also has ample reason to be concerned about reelection. His margin of victory over Republican Tom Foley in 2010 was 6,404 votes out of more than 1.2 million cast — the closest gubernatorial race in Connecticut since the election of Democrat Abraham Ribicoff

in 1954. Foley is one of several Republicans considering a challenge of Malloy in 2014. An Oct. 24 Quinnipiac University poll found Malloy with an approval/disapproval rating of 45 percent to 41 percent, an improvement of his August numbers of 43 percent to 44 percent, but less than a solid foundation to launch his campaign for a second term. The governor’s team

See Malloy, page 12


message was sound, but their timing was premature. In a presidential election year, especially one with a high-profile contest for an open U.S. Senate seat, the electorate was not ready to focus on the governor, they said. Both noted that Tuesday was the first presidential election year since 1992 in which the GOP did not lose legislative seats. Republicans hit Democratic incumbents hard on taxes, the Hartford-to-New Britain busway approved by Malloy, and the Risk Reduction Earned Credit Program, which allows inmates to reduce their sentences in return for participating in reentry programs preparing them for release. “I wish we could have made the legislative races about what happened in Connecticut over the last two years. The tax increase, early release program and others,” McKinney said. “At the end of the day, we were not successful in making the election about that.”

“In 2014, there is no distraction of a presidential race, no Linda McMahon or anyone else running for Senate,” Cafero said. “It clearly is an election about the direction of the state of Connecticut, its incumbent governor and its incumbent state legislature. That’s what it’s all about. All eyes are on that. No distractions.” The leaders of the Democratic majorities, Senate President Pro Tem Donald E. Williams Jr. of Brooklyn and

Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s budget office says the latest estimates from the state’s legislative and executive branch budget offices show Connecticut’s tax revenues have fallen behind by $52.7 million since April, when the last revenue estimates were released. But House Republican leader Lawrence Cafero Jr. on Friday accused the administration of trying to “put lipstick on a pig,” and said it should have revealed that revenues in total have fallen at least $128 million behind what was originally budgeted. Cafero said he believes the

state is in “very difficult fiscal shape.” Office of Policy and Management spokesman GianCarl Casa said the administration is not trying to hide anything and OPM was just comparing two revenue estimates. He said state lawmakers will be briefed on the details on Wednesday. Revenues from both the state’s sales tax and corporate tax are among the top laggards. Sen. John McKin-

ney, the Senate’s GOP leader, said he believes the deficit could be as much as $205 million, enough to require Malloy to submit a deficit mitigation plan to the General Assembly. “This is the fourth consecutive time revenue projections have been downgraded since the Malloy budget was adopted,” he said. “This administration needs to recognize this trend and begin preparing for the worst.”

McKinney each are considered potential gubernatorial challengers. The administration and the GOP already are struggling to promote conflicting political narratives. Malloy’s is that he cleaned up a Republican mess, and the current shortfall is relatively minor. Republicans say the state’s finances remain uncertain, despite a record tax increase in Malloy’s first year. On Thursday, Malloy reiterated his vow to balance the next budget without new taxes. He said he is open to working with Republicans, but the GOP leaders say his analysis of the Democrats’ 2012 legislative victories indicate otherwise. “On election night, I saw Mitt Romney and Barack Obama give incredibly gracious speeches, one in defeat, one in victory,” McKinney said. “Barack Obama, rather than gloating, spoke of trying to bring the country back together.” Malloy’s senior adviser, Roy Occhiogrosso, said the governor was not gloating, but drawing a reasonable lesson in the Democratic victories - and the GOP’s pointed attacks. “They chose the strategy,” Malloy said.

society decided to spend $1,000 on supplies including food, batteries, blankets and gloves to bring to affected areas. “We began collecting food and water and blankets, anything we can bring down to help people,” Meriden firefighter Brendan Noonan said. North Haven firefighters Jason Cusack and DeSimone walked through the aisles of BJs Wholesale Club in North Haven Friday afternoon, browsing for supplies. Seeing the firefighters in uniform, a woman asked for help retrieving a heavy item off the shelves. Cusack was quick to help her out while he was looking for the best deals on bottled water. Firefighters became friends with several of their New York colleagues in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when public safety crews from throughout the region responded for assistance. The society knows at least five firefighters who lost their homes in the Rockaway area and has heard that the area is home to many more police officers and firefighters. In addition to bringing supplies, the firefighters plan to grill hamburgers, hot dogs and hand out other food items to police officers, firefighters, residents and workers in the area. “Just to give them a warm meal and a little comfort they may not have had for a while,” Cusack said. Paul Shipman, spokesman for the Farmington Chapter of the American Red Cross, said many volunteers came from 12 states to help out in Connecticut after the hurri-

cane. As large-scale efforts in the state are winding down, the attention is shifting to New York and New Jersey. “We still have folks that are doing casework and following up with people. The sheltering wound down as power came back on,” Shipman said. “Now we’re switching gears. Of the people who came into the state to help us, most of those people are going on to New York .

McMahon should have started at the bottom By Chris Powell

Linda McMahon could be considered a hard lesson for Connecticut’s Republicans — if they had any interest in politics and public policy. Twice now, despite having no qualifications for high office, McMahon has purchased the party’s U.S. Senate nomination and the party has been eager to sell it, only to find McMahon dragging down the party’s whole ticket. Two years ago the McMahon disaster cost the Republicans the governorship. On Nov. 6 the McMahon disaster may have cost the party its best chance to recover a seat in Connecticut’s

congressional delegation, the candidacy of state Sen. Andrew Roraback in the 5th District. Connecticut Republicans don’t have to be masochists to wonder what might have been accomplished if even a fraction of the $100 million spent by McMahon on her monumental vanity in the last two elections had been spent broadly on supporting the party’s more qualified candidates throughout the state. But the other way for Republicans to look at McMahon is the way she touted herself to the electorate — as a “job creator.” She was a meal ticket for her consultants and contractors and

even for those party activists who, though not put on the campaign payroll, were so well fed and refreshed at campaign events, as they were again Tuesday night at the Stamford Hilton. The open bar may have eased their disappointment with McMahon’s margin of defeat — about the same 12 percent as two years ago — but it did nothing to restore competitive politics in Connecticut. Indeed, McMahon’s legacy may be that she struck the fatal blow to competitive politics here. McMahon’s handlers were supposed to be so clever. See McMahon, next page

Letters to the Editor

Dismaying results

To the editor: The election results posted are more than a little dismaying: In North Haven, Romney received 5,990 votes and Linda McMahon garnered 5,911. To those persons who voted for those two candidates, I say why? McMahon obviously thought she could buy votes with her own funds. She flooded the networks with

negative ads and personal attacks. She made implications that had no factual basis. Romney was not much better. His infamous “47 percent” remark revealed his true position. His refusal to release tax returns and answer questions about his investments in China was widely disclosed in the press. I wonder about the 5,000 plus voters who cast ballots

for these two people. Do they share a belief that the Bush recession was Obama’s fault? The facts remain, the president has done remarkably well in the face of an obstructionist Congress and those right-wingers that want him to fail. The Tea Party has been rebuked. God bless America.

An Ounce of Prevention

Do you know where your thermometer is? By V. Deborah Culligan, RN, MPH Eating is a big part of the holiday season. The cookbooks and traditional family recipes come out for those special holiday treats we make but once a year. Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s we can consume a lot of food. So it is not surprising that it is also a time of year when health departments see an increase in foodborne illness, commonly known as food poisoning. It can happen to anyone! There are many simple actions that you can take to reduce your chance of foodborne illness. How often have you actually used a food thermometer to check the temperature of your cooked meats, poultry and stuffing? For some the answer is “never.” But the simple use of the thermometer can greatly reduce your chance of food poisoning. Food thermometers should not only be used for cooking raw foods to completion (such as turkeys

and roast), but should also be used when reheating carryout meals and leftover. Food thermometers allow you to cook foods to proper temperatures, a basic rule for food safety. A second basic rule for food safety is to wash hands and cooking surfaces often. Never underestimate the power of handwashing as a tool for health. Bacteria can spread from food to you via sponges, dishrags, cutting boards, counters, utensils, and countertops. Surveys have shown that while consumers have become more aware of food safety hazards, they still practice some risky behaviors. For example, of those surveyed, 97 percent wash produce but only 34 percent change daily dishrags or sponges used to wipe kitchen counters. Thirty See Prevention, next page

tor, girls’ softball coach, high school principal from 19922007, and, finally, assistant superintendent. “She was successful in every stage of her career,” Sheehy said. “And that was for one reason. She had compassion, based on an unwavering set of convictions of what’s right and what’s wrong.” “And no one enjoyed life as much as Pat did,” she added with a laugh, lightening the event’s atmosphere. “I believe her loss will have an impact on the economy. She spent her own money as well as she spent the Board of Education’s. The catalogues of Eddie Bauer and Pottery Barn will miss her orders significantly.” Growing up in North Haven, Brozek attended local schools, bringing her connection with the local education district to a total of 48 years. “She was a woman whose word and loyalty to others superseded all else,” Sheehy said. “Pat, you lived your

Mostly they were just cynical and unscrupulous. They refused to let the candidate be questioned by news organizations, lest her vast ignorance be publicized. They tried to intimidate journalists out of mentioning the horrifying trash the candidate produced while chief of her wrestling exhibition company. They sought to disparage as a “career politician” any rival familiar with public policy. They portrayed McMahon’s challengers for the Republican nomination as RINOs, Republicans In Name Only, and then quickly discarded her own party affiliation and invited people to vote for her and the Democratic presidential candidate. They deluged the airwaves with commercials against her Democratic opponent depicting trivialities as scandals. And on Election Day, to cadge votes from lower-earn-

“There was only one Pat Brozek and that was a leader, trusted colleague and dear friend,” he added. “It is as North Haven High School principal that many of us will remember Pat. She defined the position for us. Her motivation was always compassion. She took action whenever a student or parent was in need. Her style was to take the right approach first, and ask

ing people thought to be easily confused, they even placed at polling stations campaign workers wearing McMahon T-shirts resembling shirts worn by members of the Service Employees International Union, which was supporting her opponent. McMahon’s overwhelming propaganda barrage was scary and even totalitarian, but in the end it may have been just too much, serving mainly to remind voters of her wealth and unscrupulousness, and it won her nothing beyond the baseline Republican vote. Two years ago she was beaten by a “career politician” and this week she was defeated by one of less renown than the first. Not even $100 million could transform mere vanity into substance. Conceding defeat Tuesday night, McMahon deigned to tell reporters that she would not be a candidate for governor in two years. After all, no one runs for

governor unless he wants to do more than the posturing and pandering senators get away with. And Connecticut isn’t scheduled for another Senate election for four years. Of course McMahon’s hometown, Greenwich, will have an election for its Board of Selectmen next year. That’s where Connecticut’s last Republican senator, Lowell P. Weicker Jr., got started, and there is always plenty of room in politics for people who want to start at the bottom, learn, show what they can accomplish, serve, build a record that can be tested, earn trust, and possibly advance. This procedure may seem quaint to someone who has all the money in the world and is accustomed to buying anything she wants, but apparently Connecticut still prefers it.

questions later.” Brozek’s brother Greg thought the auditorium was a proper place to name after his sister. “She loved music and the arts and would have been honored to have been connected to this theater,” he said during his speech. Superintendent Dr. Robert Cronin said that while he had only worked alongside her for 13 months since his 2011 hire, Brozek’s assistance was enormous. “During our time together, Pat used her background, connections and knowledge for good and to help me,” Cronin said in his speech. “She extended nothing but kindness and respect to me. I am indebted to her for that.” “Her love of North Haven and its schools was palatable,” he added. “She wanted only what was best for North Haven and worked tirelessly for that goal.” After speeches — and after a performance of The Beatles’ In My Life by NHHS’ all-female a capella group Key of She — Michael

Freda dedicated the auditorium to Brozek. He also officially proclaimed Nov. 13, 2012 in North Haven as Patricia K. Brozek Day. “May this be symbolic of the wonderful legacy this woman left behind,” he said to a crowd outside the auditorium, where Brozek’s plaque now adorns a column. Dallai concurred with Brozek’s brother that the auditorium was an appropriate choice. “This theater was Pat’s favorite part of the high school, the ‘crown jewel’ as she called it,” he said during his speech, fighting off tears. “Whenever she conducted tours of the high school, she would always conclude with this theater.” Thus, it’s at a beloved spot of Brozek’s where her name is cemented for the consideration of future generations. “By naming this theater in her honor, we guarantee that she — and all she did here — will never be forgotten,” Cronin said.


for food safety is to refrigerate promptly. Cold temperatures keep harmful bacteria from growing and multiplying. Refrigerate or freeze perishables and leftovers within two hours. Never defrost at room temperature. Divide large amounts of leftovers into small, shallow containers for quick cooling in the refrigerator.

Cross-contamination is the scientific word for how bacteria can be spread from one food product to another. It is important to separate raw meat, poultry, and seafood from other foods in your grocery cart and in the refrigerator. If possible, use a different cutting board for raw meat and poultry products. Always wash your hands, cutting boards, and utensils with hot, soapy water after they are in contact with raw meat, poultry, or seafood. Don’t use the same plate for cooked foods that you used for the raw food. (For example, when grilling outdoors, do not put the cooked steak back in the dish you brought it outside on.)

Youth football 3-2 in postseason’s first round By Ed Tantorski Special to The Citizen

North Haven Youth Football was 3-2 in the opening round of the Shoreline Youth Football conference championship series. The eighth-graders rolled past North Branford, 38-6, in their opening playoff game. North Haven struck first on Jack Steinman’s 17-yard pass to Billy Sgro on the opening drive. Colin Finkle’s (4-5) extra point kick made it 8-0. Tommy Dodge’s 10-yard run made it 14-0. On North Haven’s third drive, Stienman found Mike Gagliardi on a 36-yard pass to put the Indians up 22-0 at halftime. Maroon-and-White went up 30-0 on Dodge’s subsequent run of 41 yards. North Haven finished the scoring on Steinman’s third touchdown pass of the day, finding Gagliardi for 42-

yards to make it 38-6. Bowen Brennan recovered an onsides kick and Carson Tebbets blocked an extra point attempt. The offensive line of Paul Murray, Justin Kastenhuber, Dustin Byrnes, Henry Pearson and Tebbets controlled the line of scrimmage all day. The Indians will host Madison next week in the semifinals at Vanacore Field at 12:30. North Haven’s seventhgraders advanced to the second round of the playoffs with a 24-0 victory over Guilford. North Haven opened the scoring when Nick Perillie threw a touch pass of 30 yards to Gabe Martinez for a touchdown, and with a Ricky Stober two point kick put the Indians up 8-0. North Haven scored its second touchdown of the game in the second quarter when Julian Martinez scampered in from 25 yards out, and after another

Stober kick, Maroon-andWhite was up 16-0 at halftime. Joey Gargano and Christian Somma in the secondary shut down Guilford’s passing game, and also came up big against the run to hold Guilford in check all afternoon. Martinez capped scoring in the third quarter when he ran his second touchdown of the game in from 40 yards out, and with Stober’s third extra point kick, the seventh-graders sealed the victory. Eric Millard, Zach Orth, Steven Chamberlain and Steven Erbe all helped in support of the shutout. The seventhgraders will host Branford in the second round of the Shoreline Youth Football Playoffs. North Haven’s sixth grade lost to Wallingford, 14-0. The offense was led by Noah Pastore, Michael Collins and Alex Ciaburro. Jack Peruso

tively. Junior Ethan Suraci also found the end zone for Maroon-and-White. Senior Sam Biller was 4 of 5 on conversion kicks and Pecora ran in a 2-point conversion. Lyman Hall passed their way to a pair of touchdowns to cut the score to 42-14 before Indian Junior Chris Brockett broke free for a 45yard touchdown with 1:32 to play to cap the scoring at 4814. Things got out of hand very quickly in this game for the Trojans. After they kicked off, Suraci broke through the line for the Indians and took off for a 60-yard touchdown to put North Haven out in front 7-0 only 1:06 into the game. A little over three minutes later, Pecora took off for his first score, this one from 86 yards out, which made it 13-0. North Haven would tally one more touchdown before the end of the first quarter, when White ran one in from 34 yards out. A bad snap on the

In the second quarter, Pecora scampered 67 yards for his second touchdown. Soon after, White found pay dirt from 7 yards out and the Indians took a 35-0 lead into halftime.

Led by Pecora (5 carries for 190 yards), White (11 carries for 96 yards) and Suraci (5 carries for 92 yards), the Indians kept the ball on the ground and amassed 500 yards rushing. Coach Anthony Sagnella’s See Football, next page

had a great lead blocking afternoon as fullback. The defense was led by Kevin Anasulis, Eli Doheney, Arron Bell, Kevin Spencer, Nick Dodge and Devan Brockanmer. Spencer also had an interception. The North Haven fifthgrade squad won the first round of playoffs against Guilford, 33-14. Ethan Okwuosa had three touchdowns for the day and added two two-point conversions. Tyler Jacques added another touchdown and Joe Urtel had the longest run of the day with a 52-yarder up the middle. The whole team played together to come out on top in the first round of the playoffs. Next week the fifth-graders take on Clinton. North Haven fourthgraders (3-5-1) lost their opening round playoff game 13-12 to Southington (8-1) on

Sunday. After a first quarter Gino Schiavo interception, North Haven took a 6-0 lead into halftime thanks to a 35yard touchdown run by Zach Peters. After Southington tied the score at 6-6, North Haven scored again in the fourth quarter after a 45yard pass from Zach Peters to David Pace got the Indians to the Southington 2-yard line. Pace punched in the touchdown two plays later making the score 12-6. Southington drove for a touchdown of its own and managed the extra point to close the scoring at 13-12. The Indians gave a great effort, and were aided on defense with efforts by Patrick Lillis, Damian Carrano, Nick Judd, Justin Pirellie, Justin Nadolny, Steven Marciano and Aaron Barbiero. Ed Tantorski is a member of the NHYF executive board.

old-school offense only threw the ball four times and junior Evan Manameit completed one of them to sophomore Joe Corniello for 26 yards. Following his traditional showing of sportsmanship, Sagnella took his starters out once his team’s lead became insurmountable, and 37 different players recorded at least one tackle. Junior Nick McInnis led the team with seven tackles. North Haven’s record now stands at 6-3 with one home game remaining on Thanksgiving Day versus Amity. Even with a victory in that game, the Class L State playoffs remain a long shot at this point.

Friday, November 16, 2012 — The North Haven Citizen


Super PAC evolution By Kyle Swartz Money never had more potential power in an election cycle than this recent one. November’s presidential election was America’s first following the U.S. Supreme Court’s odious Citizens United decision of 2010. That misjudgment prompted creation of “super PACs,” fundraising organizations which can accept unlimited donations from people, corporations and/or unions to independently support or attack politicians or political causes. Leveraging billions in donations, PACs flooded airwaves nationwide with negative ads. They funded other forms of campaignbased advertising, like mailers. Recipients of finances included Obama and Romney both, and candidates all the way down to entrants in local races. The imprint of special-interest money was everywhere. Thus, on Nov. 6, Americans could see, on the largest scale possible, how PACs and their piles of independent dollars could affect voters. Which, refreshingly, was not much. Many candidates who received significant monetary assistance ended up as losers. According to numerous media sources, casino magnate Sheldon Adelson infamously became the highest- spending political donor of all time this election season in support of eight candidates. But none of the Adelson eight won. Moreover, American Crossroads, a PAC co-organized by Republican strategist Karl Rove, spent $104 million to support or oppose 19 total office-contenders. The return on investment? Two politicians

opposed were defeated. All other 17 races finished opposite as to how American Crossroads attempted to manipulate them. Regrettably, such poor results almost certainly don’t signal a slowdown for PACs, but an evolution. Already on forums such as, pundits are predicting the future of outside fundraising: less negative advertising, more analytics. This means financing voterbloc identification studies and “get-out-the-vote” movements, ballot-swinging methods proven more effective than attack ads. Money shouldn’t have equal or greater worth on Election Day than voters’ independent voices. While Nov. 6 momentarily upheld constituents’ advantage over PACs, it’s likely a matter of time before these associations discover new ways to gain increased leverage. There is hope. In an August question-and-answer session on, Obama expressed interest in repealing the Citizens United decision. Although this wouldn’t disallow PACs, it would limit considerably their fundraising capabilities. In Obama’s second term, several conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices could retire. If America’s highest judicial body gains applicable voting numbers, it should strike down Citizens United, reduce super PAC power, and return balloting back to what it should be: voters forming opinions solely based upon convictions, and not money-driven outside influences. Kyle Swartz is editor of The North Haven Citizen and an editorial associate at the Record-Journal, Meriden.
