Amen. Finally something published in the Press that makes sense and is well thought out!

I'm sure Frank Nicastro would run to be the first mayor, but likely loose with the large GOP population in New Britski.

Additionally with the number of Catholic churches that the new town would have we could perhaps set up our own Diocese.

I would pass a city sales tax (akin to county sales taxes in most other states) and capitalize on the Plainville business traffic.

If this is even a possibility in the next 10 years I would consider staying in CT!

It just might be time for mr. smith to re-evaluate his policy on drug use .

If he's taking them he should STOP .

If he's NOT taking them , then maybe he should START.

Insanity is live and well @ the Bristol Press.

And these statements have what to do about issues?

Be careful what you ask for, you may get it.

The bigger the entity, the less control and say the people have about issues that concern them the most.

Look up the word SUBSIDIARITY

Smith is joking around while the cities and towns have serious issues to grapple with. What a pompous jerk.

Reading Smith's article was a waste of my time.

What if we just combine Plainville and Bristol since those two towns have similar demographics (population density, housing, businesses, history, etc.).

First step should be to make sure Forestville is part of Bristol.
