Residence, What Residence? Plus: Political Tea Leaves, And Rosa Correa’s Appointment

September 29th, 2009 · 23 Comments · Civil Service

You gotta love City Attorney Mark Anastasi. How does a lawyer spew BS? Mark shared his “legal” defense of Civil Service Commission President Eleanor Guedes’ claimed bona fide residence in Bridgeport (even though she really lives in Trumbull).

Another week and still no realistic word on a state budget. Gotta wonder how this is impacting municipal budgets that rely on the state dough to fund teacher salaries and a bunch of other departments. What say you? The fault of inflexible legislative Dems? A Republican governor who doesn’t want to soak her higher-income voter […]
