Conor Kennedy meets Springfield voters

State Senate hopeful Conor Kennedy of Hartford was in Springfield today gathering signatures to get on the August primary election ballot. Filing deadline is May 26.


  1. This kid needs to go out and get a real job and some real world experience. We've had enough of unaccomplished politicos seeking a name and game for themselves but having no experience in any walk of life other than the cocoon of "government". Go out and out some callouses on those soft palms of yours and fully understand the meaning of real work and how government by full-time politicians takes and wastes more out of every dollar you earn.

  2. God help us. Another liberal that has achieved NOTHING that feels compelled to seek self justification. Here's a hint Conor, pay some serious dues in mastering a trade or running a commercial enterprise. Pay for your own health care, a mortgage, feed and clothe a family, while saving for college and retirement. Get a reality check on just how hard the rest of us work and deeply resent your ilk wanting to feel good about themselves at our expense. Now go get a real job and see just how well you stack up to the rest of us.

  3. I just read his webpage - and yeah, sorry Kennedy - but you haven't even had a real job yet lol. You've been skiing.

    Molly Ivins wrote, "George W. Bush got money from his father's friends [to fail in his startups]. This made him a successful businessman." I don't think Conor Kennedy needs to imitate either him or, for that matter, the premier Republican candidate in the US, Donald Trump (bankrupted 4 times, but nobody asks his investors how they feel about him).

    1. Chuck, you invariably miss the mark every time!


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
