GOVERNOR RELL ISSUES PAROLE BAN
On Friday, September 21, 2007 Governor M. Jodi Rell announced her decision to ban parole for all individuals convicted of violent offenses, pending a review of the probation and parole process. Like all other CT residents, members of A Better Way Foundationís Clean Slate Committee were outraged by the home invasion murders that occurred in Cheshire. CSC shares Governor Rellís concern about the public safety of CT residents.
The position of CSC is that the rehabilitation of inmates through education, vocational training and mandatory counseling, in addition to fair employment and housing opportunities for formerly incarcerated individuals, is a piece of the public safety solution currently being ignored by Governor Rell and the Judiciary Committee. CSC believes that punishing all eligible parolees because of the actions of a few is compounding an already serious problem. If you disagree with Governor Rellís parole ban, CSC requests that you contact her office and politely express your view.
The Governorís office can be reached at (860) 566-4840, toll free: 1-800-406-1527, TDD (860) 524-7397 or Governor.Rell@po.state.ct.us. Please let CSC know that you have contacted Governor Rell. Call (860) 673-1597 or email email@example.com after you have contacted the Governorís office.
