Many Democrats regard DiPace's involvement with the nuns as that of a loyal stooge, rather than as a mastermind. They believe he did what Pat Tallarita and Tony Troiano wanted him to do. There is an attitude that when DiPace was kicked off P&Z, "He took it on the chin for the rest of us."
Loyalty is the coin of the realm in relationship-based politics. DiPace's election signals the triumph of the Old Guard.

Democrats of Enfield seek help. Help is available. There are support groups for the abused.
First, you stand silently while your past leaders mistreat the Felician Sisters. Forcing the Sisters to go all the way to the Supreme Court of CT.
Now, you elect the front person of that embarrassing, costly, legal debacle as your leader.
Are you being intimated? Being manipulted? Humiliated?
What prevents you from changing leadership?
