When former five-term Town Councilman Michael London sat down to write a commentary detailing his reasons for quitting the Republican Party and registering as an unaffiliated voter, he expected his words would get a reaction. That was the point. But even he is shocked at the amount and intensity of the feedback he has received.
“I’ve received a lot of comments, and most of them have been surprisingly supportive,” London said Tuesday, four days after his his column, My Party’s Over: Why I Quit the Republican Party, ran in the Hartford Courant. “But some of the ones that weren’t supportive have been really off the wall in some ways.”
