Middletown mayor: Lapse in judgement to seek campaign donations from staff MIDDLETOWN — Hoping to stem a rising tide of criticism involving a letter he sent to city employees at their private addresses looking for contributions to his gubernatorial bid, Democratic Mayor Daniel T. Drew has apologized, describing the incident as “an error in judgment.” Last week, Drew sent a letter asking for contributions — specifically $100 gifts to his campaign for seeking the nomination for the state’s top...
CROMWELL >> The Cromwell Belden Public Library will resume its regular hours beginning next month. The library had reduced its hours over the past six weeks because of a staff shortage and a regular, abreviated summer schedule, officials said. Now, however, “We are pleased to announce that as of Oct. 2, we will fully back up and running with our regular hours and with a full staff,” Library Director Kara Canney said.
CROMWELL >> First Selectwoman Susan S. Bransfield said she is thrilled at the mostly positive response from Cromwell officials about working on a possible joint fireworks display in 2018. Bransfield had mentioned the idea to Town Manager Anthony J. Salvatore in Hartford last month. Salvatore’s initial response was very positive. But, he told Bransfield, he had to bring the proposal to the Cromwell Town Council for consideration, which he did last week.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
