– 94.9 Radio Show Hosts Lee Elci and Lori Hopkins-Cavanagh will join to talk about a variety of subjects including what radio used to be like compared to now and the Democrats.

– Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Concordia University Travis Smith contends that “superhero” stories are not just the amusements of a misspent youth; they have serious moral significance and can teach us important lessons about the happiness of individuals and the well-being of a free society that depends on people behaving responsibly. He argues that when citizens perceive problems as too large or serious, they tend to feel powerless and look to superpowered persons in politics to do the “work of saving us through the application of coercive measures”…which results in “regulating, prohibiting, pursuing, persecuting, and punishing.” But can superheroes be good role models of ethical behavior and personal responsibility for a free society?

– Jason Giulietti, Connecticut Economic Resource Center (CERC) Vice President of Business Recruitment has been named one of North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers, according to a list developed by an industry consulting firm.

BRAD DAVIS SHOW SCHEDULE: SEPTEMBER 25TH

GOOD MORNING, GOOD MORNING, GOOOOOOOOOD MORNING! Here’s what’s on tap for this Tuesday edition of the Brad Davis Show!

 

  • Spokesman for Triple A North East, Robert Sinclair, will talk about the 2018 Driving Costs Analysis or drill down more deeply into one aspect of higher driving cost, increased insurance rates.  Everyone is seeing their auto insurance bill go up by five to ten percent for a number of reasons.

 

  • Senator Len Suzio will talk about, John Fabrizi, Bridgeport’s Mayor from 2003-2007, a guy who bleeds Bridgeport, is now a resident of Florida:  “It was economic. I’ve lived here all my life. It was a very difficult decision, but the driving force was economics. My property tax is less than $1,000, and we’re saving about $3,000 on motor vehicle taxes. And we’re lucky, we are people who have the opportunity to do this. A lot of people don’t have the opportunity. The state looks like it will take at least a decade to get out of this — not years — a decade. I can’t blame the unions. They’re fighting for their people, and the politicians want the unions to get elected. But the agreements in place now are not in sync with the times. New folks have to get something like a 401(k). The new governor has to get Connecticut not only solvent, but attractive to young people and businesses. Right now, it’s disastrous in Connecticut. When people with money are moving out, that’s not a good thing.”

 

  • The Communications Manager of the Better Business Bureau Serving Connecticut, Luke Frey, will discuss when a natural disaster strikes many people look to help in any way they can- most of the time that is financially, Luke will talk about tips for Charitable Giving After a Natural Disaster.

 

All that and your calls, sports with Brian, and news of the day, heard exclusively on the Talk of Connecticut from you radio or smart phone app!

BRAD DAVIS SHOW SCHEDULE: SEPTEMBER 21ST

BRAD DAVIS SHOW SCHEDULE: SEPTEMBER 21ST

Wrap up the week and prepare for the weekend with the legendary Brad Davis! Here’s what’s on tap this morning:

– We dive back into the Connecticut bridge issue as the bridge report came out yesterday, and it’s not good…

-Senator Toni Boucher is co-chair of the transportation committee, During Wednesday’s presentation at the Council of Governments, DOT commissioner Redeker also updated local officials that the Bond Commission previously authorized $10 million for an evaluation of tolls, following the governor’s executive order. Redeker said the goal is to put out a request for proposals for assistance in developing a strategic plan for DOT’s funding needs over 20 years, find out where the funding gaps are and what tolls might do if enabled, and complete revenue estimates, traffic impacts, environmental assessments, preliminary designs and public outreach. “That said, none of that’ll happen if the new governor doesn’t want it, so we’re kind of waiting to see what happens in the election,” he said. “It would have to be a governor or legislature telling us to go forward, and if we started, it would be four to five years before we’d be in a place to actually start collecting tolls.”

Redeker said DOT has run numbers that show tolls could generate a billion dollars net per year, and 40 percent of that would come from out-of-state residents. By comparison, to generate $1 billion with the gas tax, that tax would have to be raised by 60 to 70 cents a gallon, he said. Redeker said he’ll do as directed regarding tolling but there are some reasons to do this to shift the burden. “In fact, you could put tolls in and lower the gas tax probably and really shift the funding profile to out-of-state [drivers] and trucks paying more of their share,” he said.

– Dr. Peter Glidden,a Licensed Naturopathic doctor with 30 years of clinical experience will talk about suicide is on the rise. Anthony Bourdain & Kate Spade are the tip of the iceberg. Did you know that one of the side effects of anti-depressants is suicide? I bet your audience does…

– Senator Kevin Witkos is serving his fifth term in the state Senate. He became the Deputy Senate Republican President Pro Tempore in January 2017 and he proudly represents the 8th Senate District, which includes the communities of Avon, Barkhamsted, Canton, Colebrook, Granby, Hartland, Harwinton, New Hartford, Norfolk, Simsbury and Torrington and will talk about: We’ve only recovered 88 percent of jobs lost in the recession,” said Eric Gedje, the vice president for governmental affairs at the Connecticut Business and Industry Association, the largest business organization in the state. “Other states have done a much better job. Massachusetts has gained back more than 300 percent of their jobs.” The state legislature has enacted two of the largest tax increases in Connecticut’s history, according to Gedje. Despite those, he said, the state is collecting less revenue than before the increases.

– Curtis Robinson will be into talk about The Curtis and Sheila Robinson Foundation Gives to Residents in Need. Southington Police, Central Baptist Church in Southington and Southington Community Center Partners with the Robinsons to Help Families.
