all well and good ,take a look at who gets what and how much,some departments got two men for two years beats any deal given to Norwalk over the last 4 years.What about the police boat they do all the heavy lifting all the saves all the work and get nothing a typical Norwalkian move .Shame no one in city hall knows whats going on when your wife is a council member the last person we need is someone in city hall puling strings for incompetence .Our fire chief has failed challenge anyone to facts just look at fires Norwalk has they save the foundation and thats about it. Reason Norwalk loses so much they never have done matching funds they get squat for that effort. View Comment
be nice if there was a crack down on shootings and misc crime,but we all know there is no money in catching criminals.This last report on drop in crime was a joke something lout of Duffs playbook. View Comment
What about arming us against them?You really all think once its law the bad guys will surrender? This is what got us here in the first place politicians claiming the silver bullet at election time no less.Have any of the people commenting been on the wrong end of a barrel? Course not so its easy to to write a comment sitting safely in your home.The woman who was killed sitting on her porch must of deserved it if your a democrat if you read this thread.What about Norwalks own gun company located at the Merritt? Maybe we should ask them to leave why enjoy the tax from these people when you have Ct taxpayers paying for everything.Thats in Murpys back yard where is the press on this tidbit? View Comment
Murphy is lost look at his friends in Ct,they all seem to be happy with how things have been progressed.Where are the republicans or have they decided to leave this sinking ship called Ct? View Comment
maybe your a firefighter something thats missing from the equation ,maybe they were invited but couldn't find a way to charge overtime for the eventMaybe keeping the NFD from the water is showing us all safety first hand. The is a great event for those taxpayers tired of seeing our politicians fight among themselves they won't be there so go and enjoy the evening.
Sorry to hear Legend how you feel,there has been a few arrests that were just overturned where they couldn't make an arrest stick,should be looking at the mayor he was in charge on the last mistakes.One kid served over a year to have his case thrown out this week,that kind of failure points to the top Mr Rilling is certainly on top.

John is a good guy,he has seen first hand what happens when you think South Norwalk and vote Rowyaton, it doesn't work.If anything he has not made mistakes by jumping on bandwagons and vote policy not fact.Good luck the seat your seeking has no strings.Others may learn from his goal safety is an issue just ask Duff or Rilling they already have an answer for those wondering if the city is in good shape(3 year old data as stale as month old bread).Some of the people running for office have been victims ask them see what they say but not in front of Rilling.

Duff would be the last person anyone would have next to him,Harry must be desperate. Because crime has gone down(Based on information 3 years ago) we are to think Norwalk has seen the quality of life return?What about the daily overdoses,car thefts and house breaks that seem not to take a vacation?
full Democratic team? What team its a mob at best waiting for a fight with each other,or a way to feed off the bottom who cares about the taxpayers just shut up and follow Duff he knows where he is going no one else does it appears View Comment
some of us think Trump is the only one listening,and what he says is fine so far its the truth.Look what Stamford has now Himes? What makes him so ineffective ?He has no clue,send him to Dc and not Trump shows ignorance.Sending Himes already shows stupidity . View Comment
Meanwhile who is running the department? This seems like to much heavy lifting for those who have in the past concealed the fact Norwalk needs more fire protection.The city grows but the fire department doesn't. Not just Recruitment but the need of new equipment to fight fires with.The two fireboats are not a plus to Norwalk hardly ever used and not needed costing us how much? An fire dept audit by consultants is whats needed.Not one firefighter would complain about added protection for firefighters just the union it seems. View Comment
What about the 1895 bridge in Sono on washington st, Norwalk the RR bridge?The other walk bridge just as old is being replaced but what about the other 500 feet away? As far as I can see no one needs this Stamford bridge like those thousands each day going over the two bridges in Norwalk.This shows our politicians have no clue today the Wall st just reported on bridges and what they need to do in DC.One sometimes feel played by Himes when the next day after his sensational PR blurb Washington is now talking taking money away from Ct and sending it to the bridges clearly we weren't told the deal when Himes spoke.Typical political garbage coming from both political politicians on the approach of an election.Send them packing don't send them back to DC.Trump may be crazy but at least you know where he stands behind all of us.

clueless is the first word that comes to mind,too little too late is the first thought.As long as they are not in Norwalk we can rest another day.Top priority right now is the election anything else is just politics.
If these two guys stop passing out feel good grants and put the money to good use we may not be in this mess we are in now.
He said there are other means to pay for such work.tax fireworks imagine how much other states made on Norwalks street fireworks this year leave our gas alone in fact please leave us alone.
Norwalk seems to have has an increase in cancer,over the years the age of victims have lowered dramatically the 40 to 50 ager bracket seems to be noticeable.Cancer studies and possible sites around Norwalk should be clearly marked and clearly noted as potential sites needing cleaned up.A few years back only the sites that could be sold or generated income would be addressed what about the power plant oyster shell park or the landfills all around the 95 7 site are they not still a concern?
Norwalk needs to come clean these task forces need to become independent from political aisles and focus on those who still fish and harvest shellfish in closed areas along the coast,at least some signs waring those out for an innocent small harvest to eat should have some support from the community where they pay taxes.
Meadwow st haze something our conscil member Kimmel should note now that he has done so much for companies operating outside of the environmental box.
Waiting for officials to do their job in between in house fighting and complete chaos at city hall is the norm in Norwalk isn't really the way to go any more for a city this size.
We have an environmental task force some are very qualified and have the compassion and dedication to help clean up our city the Mayor needs to let the dogs out and stop trying to run a city by its image not its need.
Yes our family has been hard hit to those who have spent a lifetime in Norwalk and show no clear gene or history of carcinogenic reach from outside sources.
Whats already been confirmed in Norwalk should be shared to those still losing moving to Norwalk maybe a heads up when areas are bad or have been for years.Real estate and developers need to come clean as we'll we already know our politicians many of them are clueless. View Comment
Could some one point out if you live in Norwalk and get shot you may not be able to pay taxes at all,or is this new Ct death tax set up for this reason Bob? Lawmakers certainly have the basis covered. View Comment
The mayor was asked about shot spotter and said it was too expensive to buy.Truth was you can't buy it you can only rent it ,that has made thee cost come down considerably;A lot of cities have gone to the pre alert system for many reasons one is to find the crime scene so if there is a victim it may save a life as well.
Its fair too say when officers are responding to gun shots shot spotter can tell the responding officers what type how many guns are involved.It can also tell you fireworks another sound that keeps all police departments running all year long.(Duff taxes fireworks he will make some money)They say fireworks are illegal can't convince me after this last fourth.
Its hard in these types of situations for the officer they don't know whats new damage as opposed to old gunshots in cars houses and and anything else the projectile hits .
Norwalk is not alone in incidents only in response it seems at times maybe the next Mayor will have some law enforcement background so the residents can rest assured all is being done.
Odd how no comments don't suggest the overtime the city pays each time this happens may be about the same for a shot spotter station.Its not like the whole city needs this type of protection or is the whole city like Roodner court where many have been shot over the years and many have died.
Those poor victims of this event last night and the night before about the same time what do they tell their children fireworks?
Maybe its a pattern Bridgeport clamps down,the Bronx clamps down where does it leave one to go and shoot up the place.
I'm so glad crime has gone down,as our great leader Moccia once said its just an uptick,no reason for Harry to say anything else.Our council members will certainly be leading a charge away from all of this crime stuff as well there too busy fighting among themselves.
New Cannan is under attack as well in break ins what are they doing? A lot.
Norwalk has been making national news this week must be bad for the new mall developers Norwalk seemed to be such a nice safe city to invest in.
