It's about which programs are most important within the schools, input from parents. It's their chance to say what is working, and it's their chance to be heard. No one is telling you you can't go.
Bruce Kimmel what rock are you hiding under? You can't travel through Norwalk without seeing tons of graffiti, broken up roads, construction cones, cops on cell phones, taxes up, school scores down, shootings.. crimes... unsolved... a mayor who doesn pretty much nothing but attend ribbon cuttings and you think it's just Dems who think this? No, Bud, it's us Republicans too who think Norwalk is moving, in the wrong direction. We finally have a great Superintendent, yes, but thanks to you and the Republicans? No.. let's stop placing blame and work together, and I am GLAD the Dem Hopefuls are listening. We need someone with that skill.
Maybe if the city wasn't run by a mayor that likes to tote himself as a "Not Politically Correct Mayor",maybe we would all be lead and run by more civility. But you have a mayor that mouths off, a BOE that has no chutspa to fire a crappy principal but let the taxpayers pay her salary at City Hall at a pretty little sum of over $166K/year, we have a cop that beat his wife but still get to keep his job, another who is often the highest paid Norwalk employee who has a disciplinary record a mile long, we have less services from Public Works but they can have raises and hang out on dead end streets taking naps, maybe the moral of the city citizens would be a little higher. But we have no one in leadership but a couple of odd council members that actually keep a professional demeanor. I have been many city hall meetings, BOE meetings, and I feel like it's all for naught and been a waste of my time. I hope that someone out there listens at some point. View Comment
Are you kidding, the police added no value? That blood alcohol level would render most unable to hold a conversation... calling FF probably saved at least one life. That the mom states she will never forgive the daughter for this speaks how troubled she is. The 15 year old is regrettably a hero, and has made a wise choice to call for help. And if you are reading this, my prayers are with you for whatever else has happened that has lead to this. You should not have to deal with this at your age. I can't stop thinking that you have acted heroically on yours and your sister's behalf and you should always be confident you have a sense of right and wrong inside you. View Comment
Gang Crime. I see no one from the city has taken the Rte 7 connector going south and connected north on 95. That ramp, full of trash (has been like that for years) and those magnificent stone walls on the left side with O_ _L and other GANG tags have that have been there for many years need to be cleaned up. It's basically a WELCOME to NORWALK for all gangs! We don't bother cleaning up your tags, so come on in! Beside that it is just an eyesore for residents. Maybe the Mayor needs to get in his car and travel it one of these days.
It's beautiful inside but with limited hours, how will people ever know when to visit? We have been twice now when it was supposed to be open and most of the stalls were closed. Most of the food was extremely expensive. And how can you make bad gelato? It was awful!
