I’m so proud of the work that you’ve done. As we enter the final days of the campaign, I wanted to say thanks and to invite you to be the first to see the final ad of our campaign.

I hope that you’ll view our final ad of the campaign here:
It was Dan’s middle class values and experience that led me to become his partner in this election. He’s a straight shooter who believes that good government should work for the people of Connecticut, and that good government can make our lives better. Dan helped create thousands of new jobs and lower crime. He faced many of the same challenges in Stamford that our state faces now, and helped turn that city around.
I share Dan’s values – I love this state, and I want us to help make Connecticut great again for our children and our grandchildren. It’s no easy task: our next Governor and Lt. Governor must be ready to lead from day one, and I know that Dan and I are up for the task. Whether it’s keeping down property taxes, lowering electric rates, or fighting for our seniors, we’re up for the challenges ahead.
I hope that you’ll take a moment to view our final ad, and that you’ll join us on the campaign trail during these final days.
Nancy Wyman

08/06/10 Dannel Malloy Profile: Come-From-Behind Candidate Battling In Close Primary Race With Democrat And Greenwich Resident Ned Lamont

Former Stamford Mayor Dannel Malloy has a history of coming from behind in election campaigns.

He did it in 1995 in the race for mayor when he defeated a Republican incumbent.

He did it in 2006 when he lost in the Democratic gubernatorial primary against New Haven Mayor John DeStefano.

And he's trying to do it this year in a close race for governor against Greenwich cable TV entrepreneur Ned Lamont.

Police: Woman tries to take a bite out of officer at GHS
Greenwich Time

A woman was taken to Greenwich Hospital Wednesday night after families attending sporting events atGreenwich High School reported a woman bathing herself from a water fountain.

The woman appeared to be emotionally disturbed, according to the police report. Police on scene said she was rambling and acting irrationally. When officers attempted to take the woman to a hospital, she allegedly tried to bite one of the officers.

The woman began flailing about and hitting herself in the head, leading officers to try restraining her from doing any further harm to herself, department spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray said.

"She lunged and attempted to bite one of the officers," Gray said, noting that the woman ripped a latex glove from an officer's hand. ....

No charges were filed against the woman, whom police did not identify.

The Police Department's new Crisis Intervention Team was notified, but was not able to respond in time to assist officers. The department formed the unit in mid-July to help deal with calls involving emotionally disturbed people. Officers are specially trained to handle sensitive calls and refer subjects to the appropriate facilities for care.....

School's neighbors miffed about round-the-clock garage lights
Greenwich Time

The lights are on 24-7, and some neighbors have been in the dark about why.

Now these residents say it is time for school officials to flip off the switch at the Hamilton Avenue Schoolparking garage, where dozens of lights have been kept on all day, every day, since school let out in June.

The longer these lights stay on, they say, the more their taxpayer dollars go to unnecessary utility costs.

"It's a waste," complained Donald Perry, who owns property on Charles Street, near the school. "It's like putting your air conditioner on and leaving your windows open."

Charles Street resident Mauro LoParco feels likewise.

"As a taxpayer, I'm asking myself why the hell am I paying for these lights to be on when the town says it's struggling and having money problems?" he said. "It's the little things like that that add up."....

Oh, for heaven's sake – a fireboat for Greenwich? « For What It's ...
Greenwich Blog: For What It's Worth

Greenwich has applied for the return of stolen money in the form of a “free’ fireboat from the feds. There are no free lunches and no free fireboats. The craft wold have to be manned and maintained and, despite one official’s asinine quote that it would come in handy if Captain Sully came out of retirement and decided to land his next plane in Greenwich Harbor rather than the Hudson, no practical use for the thing.

Public safety officials said that homeowners [and Captain Sully] wouldn’t be the only beneficiaries.

“I think if you talk to any yacht clubs or marinas in town, I’m sure they would welcome that additional coverage,” [Fire Chief Peter] Siecienski said. ”The local yachts would be glad if we had it”.

If there’s a fire at Riverside Yacht Club, an institution dear to my heart, and the boats go up well, that’s why members insure their boats. Better they pay insurance premiums than taxpayers run a fireboat.

RTM member Joan Caldwell (no relation, so far as I know) is, as usual, all over this ridiculous idea and I think we’re safe. I’ve never met the lady, but I’d like to – why isn’t she our First Selectman?



Demmerkrat Patriot

I may not recall correctly, but isn’t at least of the frerries the Town already owns equipped with a pump and nozzle for fire use? Someone should check on the bow of the Indian Harbor ….

While I applaud the efforts to recoup some of our tax dollars from the “gubmint”, I would like to see the yearly maintenance and fuel costs for this thing. And, of course, the Greenwich tax payers will have to replace this “essential” craft when it reaches the end of its useful life.

Rather than having Mr. Warzoha apply for grants, perhaps he should be tasked with finding all the equipment that is NOT necessary for the protection and safety of the Town, and get it all off our books.

If your house next to the creek is on fire, and there’s no pressure in the hydrants, who ya gonna call? The Police? The Emergency Management Director? FF?

Why isn’t Ms. Caldwell 1st Selectman? Funny you should ask.

A. She’s busy running the RTM.
B. She brought us Conyers Farm for Peter Brant.
C. She just might be still a replacement for Mr. Tesei. Ask her.

Demmerkrat, my dad proudly claimed to have sunk more US ships than any enemy of the United States because his first task in the Navy when WW II broke out was to to inventory what, exactly, we still had floating among all the boats listed on the rolls. Turns out, ships that had fought in the Spanish American War and long since scrapped (with their steel probably sold to Japan) were just the tip of the iceberg.

Pierre Bergé, Nom de Plume

Hey, we’ve got a police force the size of an Army, so why can’t we have a Navy?

And a Marine Corps too!

Don’t worry, glad Joanie is all over the idiot Fire Chief’s proposal.

Remember Joan Caldwell did PR and lobbied for the pre felon Peter Brandt when he was developing Conyers Farm. Nobody from Greenwich lives there anyway, so why don’t we just raise the taxes on those eyesore houses up to the level of Bedford or Scarsdale and use the extra money for a nice yacht for town officials. It could be renamed Caldwell Farm.

It’s not hard to see why the country is broke!!!
