Lamont’s Bridgeport Day

Housatonic Community College, farmers market, small business round table, Moe’s Burger Joint and then a headquarters opening on Main Street are among the city visits on Ned Lamont’s schedule today less than two weeks from the Democratic primary for governor.

Lamont will hear from city residents about the changes they want to see, and will outline a vision for Bridgeport residents that focuses on investments in education, local transportation improvements and incentives to help bring economic development to Connecticut’s urban centers.

Lamont will also be joined by local supporters to mark the opening of Ned for CT’s Bridgeport Headquarters on Main Street.

  1. What if Ned put together a five year plan to reverse our current trend that began to deal with the several specific spending areas and revenue opportunities most in need of attention (whatever they are politically decided to be)? And at the end of 1 or 2, 3 or 4 we are on trend and tweaking the last years with what we have learned currently. Would anyone pay attention or care?

    Ken Flatto did it again with budgeting magic and no one paying much attention to the tricks of when pension payments are made or of what bond refunding costs in future years rather than what they may save this year. Will he provide a June 2018 FINAL REPORT when accruals or other journal entries are made as well as audit adjustments to be determined in Autumn when the audit is conducted?? He made fun of that idea last year, and performed it grudgingly the year before. So neither the Council nor you, dear taxpayer, are ever sure of the real numbers in the operating budget. Do you care? Have you told your Council person? Time will tell.
