The moderation on this site is very biased and their responsibilities are handled as if its run by children. People posting unfounded derogatory remarks are left to spew garbage about the city government and PD while those defending our PD get deleted.
Kids smoke pot, who even cares in this day and age? Malloys kid is an honest to God criminal, a different story entirely. The most noteworthy thing I find in the article is the fact our chief doesn't live here. Living here should be a requirement of ALL administrative people, if not of every municipal employee. I can understand regular municipal employees living out of town, it is expensive here. But those such as the Mayor, Chief of Police, Police commissioners, Fire Chief and others of high rank should be required to live in the city they run. If for nothing else so they share the tax burden their departments and policies place on the taxpayers. View Comment
We can end it by telling the Island Belle to hit the road, or at least pay the city for the costs incurred by having the entire shift tied up for an hour or so. The dock at Vets is a VISITORS dock, not a commercial venue anyway. As far as the Mayor, he's a political hack and we got what we deserved by electing him. He milked us for decades, retired, moved out of town & now gets to milk us some more.
What we need are less people like the idiots who ruin this board, virtually every one a liberal who knows they benefit from milking the system and blaming the other guy. CYTs business climate is what it is as a direct result of DECADES of virtual uncontested Democrat control. Blaming Rep governors is silly and shallow. Rell and Rowland we far from Conservative but even if they were their effect would be minimal at best with a supermajority of Democrats in the General Assembly. Governors or even Presidents aren't God like the fool in Hartford and the President in DC seem to think they are. They can ACT like it but only if Congress or the General Assembly are on their side. In other words a Conservative will have little effect in the current political arena in CT because the General Assembly wouldn't let them. However any Liberal has free reign in CT and the CNBC data reflects the result of it. I only wonder who these liberal idjits think will pay their high taxes and fund their projects as the tide of taxpayers leaving continues to grow and the pool of liberal "gimme everything free" section 8 housing project welfare mongrels continues to grow.
Better if it became a park to ease the burden on East Norwalk. Of course thats improvement not growth and our philosophy seems to be money money money, though any increase in revenue never equates relief for the taxpayers in the city. SONO DESPERATELY needs a decent sized park capable of being used for sports. View Comment
If in fact the state owns the Bridges then we should be collecting money FROM Metro North and Amtrack as well as any other users of them so the taxpayers done need to pay for it when things weary out. We shouldn't be expected to help pay for somebody else's transportation needs. The Railroads in this nation started & were created as private corporations funded by investors. When they stopped being profitable we should have let them go the way of the riverboat.
Commuters might do well to start living where they work. They are a huge part of why its so expensive to live here. View Comment
One killing since 2012, you clowns need to go back to school, get jobs, get off welfare, move out of the projects and start real lives. The Motorcycles, as noted are for traffic enforcement not vice. If the violence bothers you, when you move out of the projects, keep going. Might like Bridgeport better. View Comment
Its shameful that tax money is spent at all. Let the riders foot the bill. The lunacy of these clowns blaming corporate welfare or Republican big oil tax breaks id laughable. The State of CT has nothing to do with either & its the state which gets milked so commuters can make big bucks out of state on our dime. Live where you work if you don't wish to pay to get there.
Never anything good to say. Our PD does an EXCELLENT job given what they deal with. If we want to stop the shootings we need to start closing down the projects & stop building new low income and municipal housing. Ray Charles could see the correlation between housing projects & crime, they go hand in hand. View Comment
Its a good law on the surface. But its disgusting that this young lady served no time for killing a human being negligently.
As far as bicycles and joggers sharin g the road though we should be reasonable.
In East Norwalk its not uncommon for bicyclists to be in the center of the lane, or riding two abreast making it necessary to cross the center line to get around them. Its a two way street, cyclists who are more than 3 feet from the curb should be ticketed. Joggers in the street if theres a sidewalk should be ticketed. Motorists pay taxes to support the infrastructure, cyclists and joggers do not. End of story. Its bad enough we lose our streets every other weekend for this race or that race in East Norwalk, listening to people whine about bike lanes and inconsiderate drivers who simply want to use the streets motorists pay for is silly. If EVERYONE, even cyclists and joggers, were considerate it would be a non issue. And I do ride a bicycle all the time, have been doing so in East Norwalk since 1976 without issue. A big part of the issue is the traffic brought in by marketing our beach for profit. Let it turn back into a small city's beach again and nothing more will help a lot in this area. View Comment
Bob Duff, a nice guy, is a great example of everything wrong with this state. Smiles & kind words do not feed people or reduce poverty, they don't reduce deficit spending, create jobs or lower crime.
Honestly hunger is not an issue here. We give away millions every month in food, welfare, section 8 housing and more. Our poor eat better than the poor anyplace else in the world. What we should ask is why we have poor, why we have welfare & why we have housing projects. IF these programs worked the numbers on them should shrink every year. But they grow, they grow because the goal of the Democrats is to see them grow, the more poor the more grants & the more times each year the Bob Duffs get photo ops to claim they care and are here to help. Being sick of Duff is not enough. He is just one of many who need to go. We need to vote out most incumbents & certainly all Democrat incumbents. Nobody who looks for more money instead of more jobs is worth a vote. Nobody who wants more low income housing is worth consideration, nobody who wants higher taxes is worth considering and nobody who supports weakening the citizenry to create a safer CT is anything less than an accomplice to every violent crime in the state. Its time to get rid of those who have ruined us the past couple decades. View Comment
Surrounding towns do better not because Norwalks schools are lesser schools, its because of the population demographic. How many kids in Ridgefield, Wilton, Westport or Darien live in projects with welfare leach parents? As far as the tax burden in the area look no further than the Democrats and liberal Republicans we keep putting inn office. NOTHING will get better until we kick the Democrats out of Hartford & replace them with Conservatives who have sustainable ideas. View Comment
The buck stops there, but the buck, what it costs and what it means all come from the legislature. Anybody blaming ANYTHING in CT on the Republican party is out to lunch. How long will it take for people to look in the mirror instead of pointing fingers? Foley stinks but anything to stem the rubber stamping of any liberal drivel that reached Malloys desk is worth it.
Its a very very sad thing when people need to point to predecessors to explain away their guys failure. Its a societal failure, progressive liberalism is not self sustaining. It sucks an economy dry. We let it happen and now we need to vote out all big govt tax & spend politicians of any party. If we voted out every incumbent it would send a strong message. Why on earth do we keep electing the same people who put us here? View Comment
