Charter revision hearing Thursday

There's a Charter Revision Commission public hearing at 6 p.m. Thursday at City Hall to solicit ideas for possible changes to the city government's century-old blueprint.
If you've got ideas, this is the time to haul 'em out and tell the world.
Actually, I was kind of wondering what happened to the big push a few years ago to change the charter to require a public vote on any project that cost enough money. That was all the rage, then it just sort of vanished.
Anyway, former City Councilor Craig Minor set up an event page on Facebook all about the hearing on Thursday. He established another Facebook page dedicated to the commission itself.
Minor is secretary of the commission, unless someone else wants the job. There are six other members, including its chairman, David Preleski.

We need a town mamager. At best to have a backround it city management. This system is not working in bristol with no educated people in charge for several years and it shows. We took a good city and turned it into section 8 capital of conn.Look around everyday its getting worse.

Can any one answer what came out of the last Charter revision committee that was held a few years ago? Was anything adopted?

Just curious as to if this exercise actually works or not.

Charter requires that it be formed, DOES NOT require that anything has to be done.

We need more people like ZOPPO ane MINOR. Education means a lot. What we have now is a sad bunch of idiots.

Bill, you were elected to a position you failed at twice. Stop with the self ingratiating. Retire live long and happy.

Are you saying that Stortz didn't serve in the military?

How can he be a member of the American Legion then?

1:49 you got that right. The two together will do nothing.

1:49 - if your eyesight is as bad as your spelling, the only thing that you could see is "poop." - idiot.
What is the matter, did your seeing-eye door cry "uuuuuuuuuuuuggly" and bite your ass. - fool.

4:48 Saw it right the two were on leashes . The poop was gone i think they each ate each others. Thats why they call them the union puppies.

thank you mayor Ward said...

Possibly the greatest service Art Ward ever did for this city is beating Ellen Zoppo out of the political scene.

Are you still there?
Do you have any response, or was that just another of your unsubstantiated comments?

No such thing.

He served, he qualified, much to your chagrin.

Did you serve?
