01/01/08 The 2007 Knucklehead Of The Year Award Goes To .....


When it came to selecting the New York Knucklehead of the Year, however, all distractions were put aside, the nominees were carefully reviewed and the vote was unanimous. Alas, we cannot inscribe the award with an actual name, because there were multiple winners involved in this
Greenwich Police Department disaster.....

Oh, how we would like to actually name all the political geniuses involved in violating civil service rules for the Greenwich Police Department's Captains position. But that is not to be. All those involved can pick up the prize, though, by coming to the rear door of 161 North Water Street in Byram at midnight, knocking three times and whispering the secret password, which is
"Ridberg Is Incompetent."

The Morons Who Did Not Follow The Civil Service Rules And Illegally Appointed Michael Pacewicz Captain once again got the Greenwich taxpayer involved in another expensive lawsuit that the Town lost.

Pacewicz can not even properly conduct a simple internal affairs investigation.

Every time Pacewiez cashes his big fat Captain's paycheck the taxpayers are being cheated.

The taxpayers of Greenwich are paying top dollar and deserve better than the bungling Pacewicz who trys to solve police department performance and discipline problems with amateurish attempts at two bit cover ups.

With boobs like Pacewicz in charge - No wonder murders go unsolved in Greenwich.

01/01/08 - An Opinion From Nick Fortunato Of Greenwich

Norwalk Advocate
Regarding the new voting machines used in November: A family member who had already voted phoned me and said that she didn't see any of the people on the sheet that I suggested she vote for. Having not seen the sheet yet, I said; "Impossible. How could you not see them." I told her that I hadn't voted yet, but after I did, I would call and let her know what I found out....
.....In retrospect (although a worthy cause) the Girl Scout cookie table should've been way over to the side and the voting instruction table directly in front, as voting was the main purpose of the evening. Also, the notice to turn the sheet over probably should've been much bolder with larger type. I suspect that there might've been others who were confused by the sheet having two sides. A quick study of the sheets turned in would determine if the voting on one side was just an aberration.
