Turkey Of The Year Nominations

November 18th, 2011 · 18 Comments · Analysis and Comment

Rockin’ time Thursday night at the Downtown Cabaret for the Rolling Stones tribute show. Nice to see a bunch of OIB friends including big Mojo Ralph Mojica, U.S. Senate candidate Sly Salcedo, OIB web designer Sue Katz and Anna looking out of control gyrating to Satisfaction. (Where’s yahooy when you need him?) Before the show […]

Place Your Bets: Finch’s UB Freakout Meter

January 23rd, 2011 · 23 Comments · Analysis and Comment, City Politics

Now that Mary-Jane Foster is exploring a mayoral run, what’s the over/under for the next time Mayor Bill Finch spews a meltdown about the University of Bridgeport? I say before May, but if not May he’ll more than make up for it this summer if MJ, a UB executive, becomes a candidate. Why? Finch cannot help himself. […]

Mario’s Myopia, Weicker’s Wisdom

April 14th, 2010 · 8 Comments · Analysis and Comment, State Politics

Long memories can work for you and against you in politics. Democratic Town Chair Mario Testa still aches, 15 years later, that Stamford-area pols such as then State Senator George Jepsen voted against a casino for Bridgeport. Every Gold Cost state senator–Republican and Democrat–tanked the casino claiming traffic, undesirables, too much this and that was not worth it. New Republican Governor […]

March 19th, 2010 · 100 Comments · Analysis and Comment, City Politics, Library, News and Events

I didn’t see it with my own eyes, but OIB friends who were there report that Mayor Bill Finch clapped from his seat at the reviewing stand when an acknowledgment was offered for the University of Bridgeport float that participated in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. What’s the big deal? That’s a big leap for hizzoner […]

UB Good Now, You Hear

April 28th, 2009 · 22 Comments · Analysis and Comment, City Politics, Education

The hiring of Mary-Jane Foster as vice president for university relations at the University of Bridgeport places an emphasis on relations, one in particular, that could favorably reconnect UB with the mayor’s office. UB has made a dramatic comeback from 1992 when it was broke, in need of financial assistance and on the verge of closing, […]

Blackmail At Matty’s

March 14th, 2009 · 10 Comments · Analysis and Comment, Law Enforcement, News and Events

I’ll tell ya how old I’m getting; I was a scribe covering the remedy order that U.S. District Court Judge T.F. Gilroy Daly issued in 1983 to resolve racial discrimination in the Bridgeport Police Department. Daly assigned a special master to oversee his order that created balance in assignments, promotions, dispute resolution, etc. Critics of […]

Help Me Spend The Moolah

December 3rd, 2008 · 21 Comments · Development and Zoning, Media, News and Events

I’m wondering (and that usually gets me in trouble) with Barack’s talk about pumping billions into infrastructure improvements to ignite the economy what shovel-ready projects can Bridgeport start on assuming money finds its way to the Park City as early as this spring. What wish list would you start on, fix, upgrade, remodel? Congress Street […]
