Norwalk use to be a place where one would argue we were only 80,000 we get to 100,000 and a lot of things change from grants to expenses and matching funds can't wait till that scale is tipped then what.Odd how 10,000 people just showed up. View Comment
14 grand replaces what use to be a phone call where you could be ignored or double talked now no contact at all and it costs more.
Robo call still an active first response or has that been shelved also and replaced? View Comment
“In the state of Connecticut, there’s been over 270 heroin overdose deaths and that number has been going up every year,” said Dr. J. Craig Allen of Rushford Center, who works with patients as young as 13-years old who are addicted to heroin. “The number of deaths related to heroin and the other opioid medications like Oxycontin, Percocet, and so forth was over 500 last year in the state of Connecticut.”
Rowyaton kids are to have plenty of oxy a damm shame but it is Norwalk View Comment
Be nice if Jim took the time to listen to those who have in the past described safety concerns and daily operations that needed work.He comes off knowing what the problems are yet never took the time to listen to others.Crime is something Jim never took into consideration or the fact Amtrack and MTA are not the only ones using these tracks.After explaining communication among agencies were at best poor years ago nothing never changed.Its good Jim has expertise in some areas but those he is not familiar with have gone unchanged and ignored over the years.
The night this last accident occurred windshields on more than one locomotive in the same area were broken by unknown objects a fact that surfaced early.The safety of riders is another issue ignored by many from the platforms to the parking lots that seem to have increased over the years.
MTA police blotter published would eliminate a lot of smoking mirrors in place by politicians and ridership board members.Why it hasn't been done with all the power Jim enjoys is the question.
Not enough is done to and reported to ensure transparency something Ct is known for on any city or town level.
Qualified personnel means what on a MTA train? Maybe if this gets an answer others will realize there is work to do on this subject.The last accident in NY suggests there wasn't.The key to running anything right is checking basic facts something we never hear from officials or advocates.
There bar car seemed to get more press than security and safety why was that?
“This is great news for cities and towns like Norwalk and Darien,” said Duff. People stupid enough to vote for him will trust this proposal.
Bob this is great give more money to those who can't balance a check book and spend it on crap.Thanks for nothing Bob.
Sounds like the hospitals don't agree with Duff in other areas of financial relief,ought to be good in a couple of months when the rest of the State realizes what a loser this guy is. View Comment
Someone explain what happens in Norwalk to ANY ORGANIZATION THAT DOESN'T FIT the city plan right before they took the pictures?
They call themselves leaders where is the leadership?
Blind leading the blind.
New game where is Andy should be built around this article,runs for Mayor then POOF gone. View Comment
The State has found itself in worse shape with Duff at the helm.Darien votes him is each time ,it isn't rocket science his numbers are wrong.Maybe this time the entire State will reject Duffs antics the voters seem to be smarter as you leave Darien and look elsewhere.
voluntary revenue? Darien has white knuckles holding onto what isn't theres anyways not a plan dressed as a trojan horse.
Duff is no hero just a politician thinking the rest of the State is as stupid as Fairfield county. View Comment
Norwalk never had gangs so this alert never made an impact on NPD.Rilling denied the problem now as mayor he probably wants it all to go away.Meanwhile guns drugs and assaults continue.NPD is bound to catch someone the odds are there. View Comment
Norwalk has race problems folks and Duff isn't one of our leaders if you haven't noticed.Wait till tolls are in place ,as it is Duff is under fire from his own in Norwalk.People were just told what Darien does to people who try and help minorities its been news for the last week.It was nice to see Duff could stand somewhere in his district and be received well.
Dump Duff will be the new body of voters in Norwalk,where they think and vote on their own.This was simply damage control and a bad move on Duffs part to bridge a canyon not a gap.
Wait till Norwalk voters get a hold of this! View Comment
considering what Bob Duff did to our transportation agenda when he had the chance this was not a milestone for Norwalk.Look back on what Bob did for the Brewhouse and many other things he had his hands on this is not what most of us need right now.
How does this help the average resident in Norwalk?Most are having trouble eating heating and paying for medical?
Bob tends to take the easy way out this just proves that.The city hurts now it takes no time in telling him all that by broadband. View Comment
If you think about it Himes has no friends in DC he has voted against the Dowd Frank bill twice as a past Wall st boy his roots are deep and his loyality to Waters from Texas is non existant.She came from Texas to stump for Himes bet we never see her again.Himes was stripped of all things when he returned to DC this just shows he is done.Blumy on the other hand has teamed up with McCain to help our vets nothing like Himes last stunt.
Its a great year for Norwalks politicians Duff and Morris are statewide workers Perone is lost and we have Himes stalled in his own BS.
From the way the year has started expecting anything for Norwalk will only come from a Republican they were elected to help us not use us. View Comment
Does this mean the stats for the T as in stolen cars and break ins from Rowyaton lot bike theft from South Norwalk station robberies from East Norwalk and the petty crime in the Merritt stop was not counted?
Fights along metro where even victims can be stabbed in Stamford yet end up in Norwalk is not a Norwalk stat is another typical smoking mirror
Something else for Bob Duff to be proud of I guess,we could be 78 View Comment
get rid of Himes then maye we will have someone in Washington working for us all.His ads are a trip,those attacking him are great no need to make things up Himes disrespect for the community is obvious. View Comment
That guy Duff has never caught on,Oyster Shell park is nothing more than a hazardaous waste site where no remediation was done it was simply capped.When the tide goes out so doesn't chemicals this is good?
Duff did so much for Village creek but forgot about the chemicals and asbestos found in shell fish in the creek,but thats good?
Sorry folks Norwalk still has brownfields and still has contamination anywhere you go but thats good?
Bobs not the guy to depend on when it comes to facts or serious problems with the environment.
Norwalk still has a power plant that can work or be made into something just as bad and we have what Bob and Chris looking out for us that cant be good.
This lobster thing is nothing but a smoke screen,just like what comes from Lajoies each day its a blue haze decending on those who vote for Bob and Chris.Just goes to show what we really have for politicians and its not good at all.
Last thing the lobster men want is any talk of contaminaton that is right in front of us all.You have to wonder if the fishermen suspected contamination problems would they be the first to say something?
Hanging around with politicians only suggests the type of crew thay may be after all. View Comment
Norwalk gets a free fireboat that cost the city a half milion so far and it does nothing more or does any better than our police boats.Giving the fire boat to the police dept would of been a smart move something Norwalk lacks smart moves.Voting for Himes is a mistake yes that leaves only a Republican but what are the odds anyone can do worse than Himes? View Comment
one cant find fault with those who endorse Bob Duff,most don't know him and are not from his district.Working hard all year long distorting facts is a very hard job one Bob is good at simply look at his record for the city its poor at best. View Comment
Bob Duff smiles knowing he cut St Vincemts not too long ago who take care of Vets and other members of our community and told them to sharpen their pencils.
Bob Duff worked a deal with Bob Diamond reports suggested when workers at the aquarium got their jobs back then Bob Diamond just replaced school workers nothing there suggests pals does it?
Bobs a delivery boy nothing else,what he delivers are pictures showing him doing nothing,the heavy lifting is done by others who would rather be helpful than a politician.
our military veterans certainly deserve nothing less,” tell that to those who are in the shelter or on the streets of Norwalk.They deserve year round help not just at election time.What part of the service did Bob belong to anyways?
