I’m not a huge fan of term limits, but if I could cherry pick one for a pol, I’d send Chris Dodd to the pit pile.
His latest declaration about possibly nationalizing banks had me sticking fingers down my throat. But, being the open person that I am I’m willing to be persuaded why he should be reelected in 2010 which will be an interesting cycle because it’s also a gubernatorial year.
Feel free to list all the reasons the senator should be returned for (yikes) another six years. What has he done for Connecticut? What has he done for Bridgeport? Also feel free to suggest a replacement.
Hey, what’s going on with Steelpointe? The site, it appears, will be spruced up. See news release from Mayor Bill Finch below:
East Side Street Closures to Allow Work on SteelPoint Site
BRIDGEPORT, CT (Feb. 20, 2009) – Beginning Monday, Feb. 23, several streets in the Steel Point redevelopment area will be closed as part of cooperative effort by the City of Bridgeport and Bridgeport Landing Development to secure and beautify the site. The street closures are intended to discourage illegal dumping, and to allow the City to prioritize ongoing maintenance on the most heavily trafficked streets on the peninsula.
The following portions of city streets will be temporarily closed to car and pedestrian traffic:
East Main Street south of Stratford Avenue to Bridgeport Harbor;
Pierpont Street west of Pembroke Street to East Main Street;
Maiden Lane east of Pembroke Street to the Yellow Mill Channel;
Ann Street between Pembroke Street and Waterview Avenue; and
Hough Avenue (south of I-95) between Ann Street and Stratford Avenue.
In addition, Pembroke Street, south of Stratford Ave. and California Street, east of Pembroke Street are set to remain open to provide access to the M.O.V.E. Yacht Club, the Pequonnock Yacht Club, and Tallmadge Bros.
