No we don't.. I went and looked at US NEWS High School rankings and No Norwalk school is ranked.I went to the rankings where I was raised and the school is still nationally ranked: Total Minority Enrollment (% of total) 97%, and Total Economically Disadvantaged (% of total) 70%. So please lets forget about the economics and minorities. START LOOKING AT THE TEACHERS in NORWALK! View Comment
If there is a toll on Exit 14 South on I95 that means the back up will be up to Westport. Rt.1 and Merrit will become the major roads for those who do not want to pay a toll. So if you live in any of these area by Rt1 and Merrit traffic will rise by 100% if a toll happens.
You want tolls then have 1 toll and that is coming into the state and $5.00 fee for all cars and for $5.00 first axel and $2.00 extra per axel. All this at the welcome to Ct entrance. View Comment
To your remark about where Mr. Mc Carthy lives and city carting. The 6th tax district has been not getting city picking up its trash since the late 70's. The reason was they voted to leave Norwalk at a time where they where 5% of population and 15% of revenue.(I might be mistaking with the 15%) So to keep them part of the city City Hall thats right city hall said will give you a the money to run your own trash pick up and other means to run your district.
So Please stay on topic about the BofE and why are taxes are going up due to bad MANAGEMENT BY THE BofE 3 years ago. I moved here 15 years ago and my taxes have gone up over 150% percent since then. All for the teachers,city workers and their union. Which are still crying for more money to improve the education system while local area schools pay less in property taxes and have a better school system than we do.
He is getting a what? 21% RAISE while others are getting laid off. He is raising our taxes to top it all off. Get the heck out of town pretender mayor! Get your bags and get out of Norwalk Moccia because you are DONE! 1 LESS VOTE! View Comment
Then if they would have moved Washington Village to Webster parking lot the city would have sold the old property.
I think the city council should bring into LAW that NO FAMILY MEMBER can buy any property from the city while there family member is serving the city as council,mayor, or even city employee. Even if the person leaves office,resigns or is VOTED OUT FOR 4 YEARS. This includes part of a trustee or group of investors.
Bring that into the next meeting mr. Kimmel View Comment
Anna voted no so her mothers plan can be used and no the flood plain. We all know flood plains are very helpful to the community. So her mom wanted the park extended so more flood water can come in and destroy Washington Village.
Thank you to the 13 who voted yes.
Why did Dunleep voted NO? I notice she was in favor of the rebuilding Washington Village but still voted NO, 13 voted yes. Is there something I am missing here since her father spoke against the flood plain. Am I missing something?
Its time that all employees of the city pay for there family members benefits.Family members do not work for the city or anyone in the city.That's right all city employees(teachers,city hall workers, police and fire)
WI-FI? Why not worry about the trains to be on time, fix the tracks, and trains that do not break down. I love that internet is more important to the person that does not use Metro North into Manhattan. WAKE UP!
The question is was the reporter next to these 3 people with her tape recorder or she stepped away and left the recorder on while she was away from her seat or room. If she did step away it's illegal, but if she was standing next to them and was holding the recorder in front of them
she has every right to publish the report.
Now I find it a conflict of interest having the town counsel being the mayor's lawyer. He should resign as city counsel. Norwalk should look for a firm that has NO DOING WITH THE COUNSEL OR CITY HALL. I mean no donations or has represented any member of the common counsel or Board of Ed or any political office in the area. View Comment
What is need if the child is not doing his homework then have the parents come in in the morning and have them miss work. Once one does this a fire is lit that I missed work because you are not doing your work at school .If the child continues not to do its work then the child should be left back. .
Mr.Pena as a Latino and not being born in this country but a citizen of this great country. A piece of advice, Please keep on doing what you are doing. Do what you do because you are Warren Pena not Latino Warren Pena.We are all proud we are from and grandparents are from but we should be proud that we are Americans most importnt.
Want to make a difference in the latino community then do it but not with the press.
So be proud and work hard because nothing is given to you. View Comment
