After the charges, counter charges, letter war and turf protection, Mayor Bill Finch and Board of Education President Max Medina have reached common ground on the BOE easing the city’s deficit.

… And For The Good News, Plus: The State Of School Kids

October 6th, 2008 · 33 Comments · Education, National Politics

Mayor Bill Finch delivers his state of the city address to the Bridgeport City Council tonight. I’ve written my share of these speeches for mayors. (Glad I’m not writing this one.)

Delightful Grumps

October 4th, 2008 · 17 Comments · National Politics

Friday afternoon I spoke to the He-Man-Women-Haters Club, better known as M.A.L.E.S. (Male Active Lively Energetic Seniors). Think Grumpy Old Men with civics savvy. These guys love Bridgeport and national politics. And several of them are blog readers. (The rest would read but for computer familiarity.) And they pay close attention to what posters write. […]
