  1. The salary range is $140,000 to $170,000, hmmm, sounds like something Bill Finch will be interested in, I mean he said, “Bridgeport Is Getting Better,” he’s right, $20 million in the red from his term in office. Think about what he’ll do for the BRBC. Yes, “Bridgeport Is Getting Better,” now his ass is out of office.

  2. BRBC Chief Executive. Now there’s a nice, easy, cushy, no-show job (you have to show up only to make one-line statements at photo ops). Just follow the game plan of BCFC President Chris Bruhl, do what he tells you to do, and you’ll have a long, successful run.

  3. *** We all know Finch is up for this job coming this summer, let’s hope he does not get it, after what he did to the city taxpayers before he left office in a poor show from a sore political loser! *** CURSED BE HIS NAME WHILE IN THE CITY OF BPT. ***
