This inconvenience could have been avoided if everyone involved was doing it to help others instead of get nice cushy high paying jobs with benefits.
Or if we stopped attracting people unable to support themselves in the first place.
Perhaps when cyclists are taxed to fund them? "Avid" cyclist says alot. Theyre usually the ones in the way refusing to yield because they have a right to the road too. I bicycle alot around here, its a non issue as long as you realize that, despite the PC rhetoric, the roads BELONG to motor traffic.
We didnt develop & build our roads for recreation. View Comment
This is surprising? Just close the damn doors & stop wasting OUR money.
If its an anti poverty agency its failed anyway since its been there forever & we have MORE people seeking help than before. Programs like this perpetuate poverty as much as anything else they do.
This country is inhabited today by a bunch of whiny immature children. NOBODY ever said anyone has a right to never be offended. Its free speach & the lack of respect for that cornerstone of our society is disturbing, but not surprising. We already expect big govt to take care of us, why not shield us from unpleasantness as well? View Comment
How quick these unions dump a person when a democrat who used to be a member is running. Rilling has the Governor and a Congressman, Moccia has Cafero & McKinney. Given the way Cafero & McKinney are just liberals in Republican clothes I think this doesnt look good for Moccia. Much as I HATE thinking about Rilling in charge the Republicans deserve to lose if they cant stand on conservative principles anyway. View Comment
Any plans to get these folks across the road? Theres not even a sidewalk under the bridge on the east side. Metro North NEEDS to modernize this station and address the problem of their riders dashing across a busy street (made worse by a narrow bridge) during peak traffic times. East Norwalks traffic issues are largely due to this bridge & the riders not being able to get where they need to go without leaving the station. View Comment
LMAO its unbelievable the way the liberal dems blame everything on the miniscule republican presence here. EVERYTHING we deal with today is the result of 20+ years of virtually unchecked liberal democrat policy.
Support the Democrats here in CT & you support high taxes, high unemployment, zero growth and disappearing industry. About the only ones truly better off today than 20 years ago are living in projects, collecting checks & milking the system. View Comment
Personally it sickens me how much money matters, especially in a race like this. That either has to spend a dime when we all already know them would be funny if it didnt matter so much. People who change their mind on this because of marketing are shallow at best.
The thing is, none of these guys is qualified to say if the work WE pay for is good or not. Virtually EVERY street Deering has done has low & high manholes & catch basins, sometimes they even reset them & still cant come up flush. They mention potholes in the article, WHY are there so many? Why are patches in our roads done so shabilly that within weeks they become pits?
Who do we have inspecting these things that let this stuff slip? Whats his/her qualifications? Our WORKERS are generally top notch, but the administration lacks the ability and knowledge to know if a job is good or not.
all these guys think somehow being involved in politics means their opinion is worth something even if theyre clueless. They think WE are clueless too if they expect us not to notice that usually its weeks or months before a road gets cut. I wouldnt listen hard to anything Rilling has to say about paving, or much else except police work. What makes him an expert at anything except running the PD? And running it poorly I would add.
See the biggest issue is accountability, none of these bozos are accountable for what goes on during their watch. Sure they will SAY they are, but action speaks louder than words. How about fines for shody work or witholding payment until pavement meets catch basin?
The article is just politics, but it does highlight just how ambivalent & irresponsible the city govt is about spending our money. View Comment
So they shot up an unarmed woman and then displaced a bunch of other people searching her home?
I guess The Collective up there thinks its ok to just start blazing away at people who get into accidents? From what Iv real she was the only fatality.
This is just the most recent of many eye openers where law enforcement has gone totally overboard. The days of erring on the side of caution seem to be in the past. View Comment
