The last two full monthly meetings of the City Council were packed courtesy of noisy homeowners, predominantly from Black Rock, West Side and North End, cranky about their July 1 tax bills. Affiliates of Citizens Working For A Better Bridgeport helped drive the turnout. They’re trying to keep up the heat asserting in a Facebook post “No, Mayor Ganim, we are not going away until we hear from you with some answers and a concrete plan to address the fiscal health of our city.”
The council reconvenes from summer session for a full meeting on Tuesday. See full agenda here. Public speaking starts at 6:30 p.m. followed by the meeting at 7.
Come out to the City Council meeting to show them that you care and you won’t be silenced until REAL CHANGE comes to Bridgeport.
With poor schools, limited employment opportunities, spiking gun violence, ever increasing taxes, and no plan to create a better future, Bridgeport is headed in the wrong direction.
STAND UP, Bridgeport!
See you next Tuesday.
It’s been a long, long time since large packs of citizens crammed council meetings. Citizen fiscal scrutineer John Marshall Lee and a few others have been regulars for years trying to cut through the tinny council chamber acoustics. Lately, they’ve had plenty of company.
How long will it continue?
