State money coming to help fix 'Hiker'

State Sen. Tom Colapietro is planning a press conference of some sort Friday afternoon to let the city know that he got some money to help repair the vandalized Hiker statue on Memorial Boulevard. Details to follow.

Good job Tom. I wonder what they'll say about that?

Just because money comes from the State doesn't mean it's free or necessarily a good thing. Last time I checked, I pay State taxes as well...thus the money is STILL coming from the taxpayers any which way you look at it. Or are we too blind to see this? I wish these politicians would just stop doing us so many "favors"...and control their spending more.

Doesn't the city have insurance?

More leadership from Mayor Ward by working with state leaders to secure money for Bristol.

Ward and Colipietro don't talk.
Zoppo had more input than Ward!

I'm just glad those stop signs are there to bugger up the traffic flow resulting in traffic speeding through my street instead.

I guess it's more important to protect a minute number of sight-see-ers in Bristol from speeding cars than it is to protect neighborhood children from speeding cars.

Thanks Mayor "Worthless" Ward and the equally worthless council.

mentality on this site is less than one will get from visualizing the new restored monument - thank goodness that this restored monument will stand tall for something, not like you wimpish, worthless, non-contributing, sniveling, cringing maggots.

When I was in school they taught me: Colapietro = for the dumb.

4:49 You must be one of those "brilliant" Republicans who have to check to see if in fact you do pay taxes. Can't prove it by this blog !

They taught us this in college:

Unions + Democrats + naive electorate = economic stagnation = Connecticut

4:49p.m. - you must have heard that in orientation because it is quite obvious that none of our colleges/universitys have lowered the standards low enough for you to be welcomed into a classroom, even as the custodian.

Like I said before ya illerate spell Colapietro right. You can't even when it's there. C-o-l-a-p-i-e-t-r-o.

9:13 = colapietro forgot his roots and supported zoppo during the primary and is licking his wounds trying to have ward on his side for the senate campaign, pretty sleazy if you ask me.
zoppo can only be what she is and for that we would all have been sorry for if she had won this last election.

Talk in city Hall is that Rimcoski is Wards best friend.

That ought to tell us something.

Colapietro + union money + Democrat majority = less jobs in Connecticut

so Mocabee/Shaffrick/TJ or whomever else you are throwing into the mix, get off your dead butts and put a viable candidate up to run against candidates such as C-O-L-A-P-I-E-T-R-O.
Maybe it is easier to just say that you put someone up to run - GELADINO - if you aren't going to support/promote your candidate - shame on all of you....
