04/22/10 Ball Busting Greenwich Real Estate Blogger Is Ordered To Take An Ethics Course And Then Told To Take Down His Blog Post About It

First Greenwich Realtors Got Chris Fountain Fired At The Greenwich Post, Now They Are Making Him Take Down His Blog Posts

This is what passes for professionalism in Greenwich « For What It's Worth

By Christopher Fountain

From an actual email received today from that agent I mentioned earlier, confirming all my suspicions. I have been ordered to take a 3- hour ethics course because I


I don’t know what that seller’s agent is thinking, but as a homeowner in the Calhoun Association, I’d like to see those deals done. The houses are old and tired and the owners aren’t paying their Association dues–a real headache for us. The sooner they get sold and torn down the better. Sure, we’ll all take a hit on our theoretical, on-paper “property value” for a while, but the new houses that are built in their place will ultimately make up for it. We’re only delaying the inevitable, at least in these two cases that I know of–so let’s take our medicine and move forward.

Just in case you’ve ever wondered at the quality of representation you are receiving from Greenwich Realtors.

"My major concern is the effect you, and others like you, are having on our real estate market. Can you imagine the impact an $850K sale for a four bedroom colonial on one plus acres in Calhoun Association would have on the market? It would be one thing if that was all the property could command, and quite another to effectuate the sale using “slick”, in my opinion unethical, maneuvers. There are a lot of people in this town that don’t care what they have to do to make a buck, and you are obviously one of them, but I will not participate! I would ask now that we both just drop this whole thing."

04/22/08 Greenwich Resident Ned Lamont Criticizes Governor Rell's Early-Retirement Plan

The Connecticut State Republican Republican Reminds Voters Of How Bear Sterns, Lehman Brothers And AIG used Smoke And Mirrors

Less than 24 hours after Republican Gov. M. jodi Rell proposed offering early retirement to state employees, Greenwich resident and Democratic candidate for governor, Ned Lamont, ripped the plan.

The Greenwich cable television entrepreneur was soon joined by former Stamford Mayor and Democratic candidate for governor, Dannel Malloy, called the idea penny-wise and pound foolish — saving money in the short term and but costing even more in the long term as state employees head out the door.

The state, they argued, will lose some of its best and brightest as thousands of experienced employees leave.

Mr Lamont has been quoted in the press saying, "The worst part is that the 'savings' this short-sighted proposal offers are a drop in the bucket — savings that are overshadowed by the loss of talent and the time, energy and money it will take to train their replacements, It's time to stop kicking the can down the road."

An estimated 8,000 state employees would be eligible for the plan, and 2,000 are expected to take it.

Since about 1,000 positions would have to be refilled, the state workforce would be cut by about 1,000 positions — saving $65 million per year, the out going Republican Governor has claimed

The amount of savings in both the short and long term depends on the speed at which jobs are refilled.

Mr. Malloy sumed up the plan this way, "The problem with this type of program is clear: They sacrifice long-term economic stability and growth for a perceived short-term benefit. When employees take advantage of the plan they eventually have to be replaced, often at higher costs than if the current workers had stayed on the job. As just one example, in last year's plan we lost approximately 500 correction officers. Obviously, they'll have to be replaced, and it costs approximately $30,000 to train each one."
