An Arresting Development

13May08

A VERY good and reliable source has just informed me that a warrant for Richard Miron’s arrest has been issued by the City of Bridgeport.

If I were Rich Weizel, I’d get my butt over to the PD with a photographer today.

It was bound to happen sooner or later.

Larceny in the third degree 53a-124 is a Class D Felony punishable by 1 to 5 years and/or up to $5,000
The degree of larceny depends in most cases on the type and value of the property stolen. The means by which the larceny is committed determines the degree for two offenses: larceny by extortion, which is first degree, and larceny from the person, which is second degree. If the property stolen consists of public records or scientific or technical material, it is larceny in the third degree, regardless of the value of the property. The degree for all other larceny offenses depends on the value of the property…http://www.jud.ct.gov/JI/criminal/part9/

Now, what about those donations by Lakeview Monument to Jim Miron’s campaign?

You read it in the Post (After you read it here)

Stratford registrar charged with larceny
STAFF REPORTS
Article Last Updated: 05/13/2008 04:38:56 PM EDT

BRIDGEPORT — Richard Miron, the owner of the defunct Lakeview Monument Co. — accused of failing to deliver headstones purchased for as many as 80 graves — was charged with larceny this afternoon.

Miron, 73, the Democratic registrar of voters in Stratford, surrendered to police on a charge of third-degree larceny shortly after 2 p.m. He is being held on a $10,000 bond, although he is expected to make bail by later today.

The charge relates to the complaint against Miron by Verna Kearney, a Bridgeport police officer, who paid for a headstone for the grave of her late husband, Nelson, also a police officer, last August. Keraney paid Miron $2,829.50 for the headstone, but it was never delivered to the gravesite in Lakeview Cemetery, according to the complaint. Miron did not return numerous calls she made to inquire about the status of the headstone, and she filed a complaint against him with both police and state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal.

Blumenthal has subsequently filed suit against Miron seeking both restitution and civil penalties.

Other criminal charges may be forthcoming.

It was not immediately clear if Miron’s arrest would affect his ability to continue in public office or his plans to seek re-election as registrar in November.

Miron is the father of Stratford Mayor James R. Miron.

    I believe the defecation is about to impact the rotary oscillator.

  2. 2 sudds

    I say that we have one of our police officers who have been given a “conditional offer employment” arrest him!!!

    Anyone have any guesses as to which officer fitting this description I would personally recommend???

  3. 3 mikereynolds

    Well since that individual hasn’t passed the academy he doesn’t have arrest powers.

    But its an amusing thought.

  4. 4 jezebel282

    City of Bridgeport guys, City of Bridgeport.

  5. 5 sudds

    If Bridgeport residents can be on our Town Council… then why can’t we make arrests based on their warrants??? :oP

  6. 6 jezebel282

    Hmmm…lemme see, how would that work? John Buturla would have Dick Miron arrested by his son Christian and then defended by John’s brother Richard at Berchem, Devlin and Moses?

    Maybe he can get accelerated rehabilitation like his daughter? If only the State Attorney would make it a clean sweep and de-mironize Town Hall for us.

    The Miron’s must have a huge rotary oscillator somewhere……

  7. 7 starlooker

    All I can say is WOW……. First Mike Henrick and now Dick Miron Arrested. What a difference 24 hours make. Imagine if both happened on same exact day? I would be late for work reading all the articles. All I can say is…It is about time!!!!!!!

  8. 8 jezebel282

    Not so fast there, Star.

    The budget hasn’t passed yet. Where would Dick get $100,000? Look for the invoices from Berchem, Moses & Devlin increase by, say, $100,000 plus interest?

  9. Could this be the beginning of the end of the Miron dynasty?
    Could this be the beginning of the end of the Miron administration?
    I can hear the dancing in the streets.

    Flashback: Miron resigned once before, took his pension and vacation payout and came back within a month.
    Never say never!

    A story on channel 7, about a NYC DEAD BEAT, indicated that when lack
    of payment exceeds $ 1,000, many states move a charge from misdemeanor
    to felony.

    I take no pleasure in Dick’s demise.

    Conversely I have empathy for those who paid him in good faith, and ….

    And, I have empathy for all of those people whose lives he has harmed,
    including mine and people I care about, not dissimilar to the bloggers.

    However, he Jim and the Burturlas / LoSchiavos and others are uwitting fools
    and puppets, which I tried to warn them about. (They would be betrayed)

    My extra jurisdictional postings the last couple of days, were because another
    older friend of the family recently died. It was within days of an appeal of
    redress of grievance. Each appeal appears to be followed by a death. This is
    known as adverse psychology, intimidation, and reprisal under the color of law.

    No every post, is aimed at a Stratford area audience.

    After the end of the drawing of the mIron curtain to a close, some other
    useful idiot will “assume the position.”
    They always kill the assassin.
    They always kill the assassin of the assassin.
    No trail. No evidence.
    Which of you and which of you families will become victims of people for
    whom murder / ruination / calumny is a profession, hobby, and personal schadenfreude?

    As Dick Miron once told me …. “The Republicans do it to themselves,
    everytime…. ”

    Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the …..

  12. 12 freedomofspeach

    Someone should see who posted the bond. Might tell you a lot about the players. What did he use as collateral? He says he has nothing of value. Maybe money from Bridgeport? Maybe the King? Maybe 1george1 is right.

    Are these people psychotic? Who would screw a Bridgeport Police officer and think hes going to get away with it? Talk about arrogance.

    Dont forget to post the link from the news tonight shoing him perp walked or all the news vans out in front of his house.

    So proud to be a Dem in Stratdford today. I hope they run them both out on a rail.

    I hope the news people look into this; it would make a great connect the dots for 1george1.

    How does what Dick Miron affect Jim Miron?

    Sadly, you pathetic souls have nothing on him.

    I pity you.

    The Mayor is not the problem.

    You are barking up the wrong tree….

    FIND the problem…..

  24. 24 officersean

    It is right in front of you….

  25. 25 1george1

    From officer sean:

    FIND the problem…..
    It is right in front of you….

    Hmmmmmmmmmm.
    What are right in front of me?
    1. Quotes from Officer Sean.
    2. The Jeze blog.

    Is the first a confession and the second a subjective indictment?

    Which have merit?
    One or the other?
    Both?
    Neither?

    Critical Parties often have detailed knowledge of each other, and
    each other tend to have “some” basis & truth for cause (& effect).

    Local divide and conquor is bad.
    However, I strongly suggest each side coming forward & confessing “sins,”
    because those with REAL CRIMES sit well above the “catbird seat” much
    like the CONDOR and the LOOKING GLASS.
    I will be ignored and mocked.

    However, I tried to warn Mirons & Burturlas.
    Jim Miron must feel like “JOB.”
    I believe the Burturlas & Berchems will get their turn.

    I believe the “BEST backers,” “DOM’s do NUTS,” and others will find
    their turn in the barrel…

    No one can think or blog, I have NOT tried …..

    I notice officer sean had a measured number of posts, which moved other
    posts from the LIST, not necessarily within this string?

    Was it intentional?
    If so, had someone struck a nerve or a cord?

    If not?
    Not all dots are connectible?

    However, by counting backwards, I wonder if my inquiry with Freedom’s
    comments ….. 😦
    I wonder?

  27. 27 1george1

    Monday night, Esq. Burturla seemed to be in a particularly good mood.
    I ascribed it to the ADVO property already being bid and that he was
    finally taking the AIRPORT PURCHASE off the TABLE. So, I suspected he
    was already counting his money?

    Now, I wonder if his glee had anything to do with the impending arrest
    of Dick Miron?

    Has Norm been cut out of the AVCO & AIRPORT grand theft?
    Are Dick & Jim going to be cut out of the AVCO & AIRPORT grand theft?
    Are the newer police going to be cut out of the PENSION PORK, now that
    certain person is in THE ultimate position and the Miron boy is # 2?

    Of all the people to be BEST PLACED to harm
    Brook Miron,
    Christian Miron,
    Dick Miron,
    Jim Miron,
    LoSchiavos,
    younger police,
    younger fire,
    younger PW,
    Norm / Camillo / Crudo,
    Feehan,
    Henrick / Moore / Imbro / Kubic
    Kelly / Florek / Williams / Ahlberg / et al.
    PENSIONERS, trying to use me & RRC / FACT, for plausible deniability
    Bring in Haddad, to force out the Bloggers’ friends

    who are better placed than R Burturla / Berchem,
    with State & Federal contacts thru J Burturla state police/homeland sec?

    Wouldn’t it be the ultimate irony if DICK MIRON was SET UP by the
    FRIENDS of BURTURLA?

    Wouldn’t it be the ultimate irony if JIM MIRON was helping Dick Burturla
    make $ 500,000 a year (up 300%) when his own Town Attorney and Police
    Chief were helping him to be set up to be the front guy / fall guy?

    Think about it? Who is better placed?

    Haven’t they used Kevin Kelly to protect them on the FEE INCREASE and
    the Charter Revision?

    Haven’t they let the Republicans dominate both C. R. C.?

    Haven’t they let the nominal Republicans make the Ethics changes?

    Haven’t they used certain people and assets to set me up and betray me
    in my Civil Case, so it is not like it is out of their level of M. O., is it?

    I wonder if all the bloggers have been directing their hate at the WRONG
    IDIOTS and PUPPETS, when sitting very prominently and getting paid SIX
    FIGURES SINCE 1996 is a certain …… 😦

    Jeze, Freedom, Sudds, Gavin, Jon, Mike, Cyclops, Star looker< Play write,
    and OFFICER SEAN…
    What if I am right ?

    What if all of you (& I) are being played and being given the Mirons as bait
    and/or sacrificial wolves?

    If I was Jim & Dick Miron, I would at least be wondering how all of this
    stuff could be happening to them, while no problems happen at Berchem
    / Burturla, which affects the MONEY TREE? 😉

    Can you IMAGINE the intricacy of the BETRAYAL? 8)

    Who could possibly suspect and project this INSIDE JOB? 🙂

    While Burturla / Berchem are making millions, Dick Miron had not even been
    able to scoop anything more than $ 30,000 a year from ALL THOSE MILLIONS,
    to the point he could not deliver $ 50,000 in products, which probably cost
    WHOLESALE less than 1/4th of what was charged?

    Hey if Burturla is doing the DOUBLE CROSS, it would NOT SURPRIZE ME,
    but would SURPRIZE many other people, until they matched ……

  28. 28 1george1

    You know, if I was a member of this and past C. R. C. or Town Councilor
    present or past, or Town Managers past and Mayor, or past or present
    Department heads who controlled the Treasury and the Voting, I would
    want to be concerned if the Town Attorney MAY, MAY, MAY be setting
    me up as the people with LIABILITY ISSUES?

    Who votes on the LAWS?

    Who grants Appointments?

    Who votes on the Budgets?

    Hey, if the Town Attorney takes positions which we ignore, is he liable
    or am I?

    I can not comment on a certain Committee, however I have made
    certain positions known, and have multiple locations and back ups
    to prove those positions.

    If I see proof of a trap, I will do what I can to prevent it, but I will
    NOT sign my name to something which I do NOT believe, NOT will
    I ever intentionally do harm to innocents and good people.

    I have advised the Town Council, which I hope they should consider as
    beneficial warnings, on multiple subjects.

    I have advised the Town Council Charter Revision Commission, which
    I hope they should consider as beneficial warnings, on multiple issues.

    At some point, one can only do so much… 😦

    Please look to the History and people, think critically and even with a sense
    of paranoia and cynicism, and THEN make your own decisions!

    One can always count on dishonest people to do the dishonest thing.
    And when they are very intelligent and use COUNTER INTUTIVE PRACTICES…?

  29. 29 officersean

    The problem my dear friend George is black and white.

    Now you must cultivate the information.

    If you do, it may yield a bounty that will change many views.

  30. I think Dick Miron finally got his comeupance! I did the happy dance of joy this morning when I read the headlines. His resignation and arrest.

    I wonder who will be retained to represent him. Think it could be the same firm that represented his daughter – Gulash & Riccio? Somehow, I doubt it’ll be anyone from BMD. While I haven’t looked, I don’t think they’re big on criminal law.

    I would also hope that he’s ordered to make restitution to the 80 plus families he stole from. I could be wrong, but I don’t think that would go away in bankruptcy.

  31. 31 jezebel282

    Thank you for your input, “Sean”. However, I doubt anything will change anyone’s view of Mayor Moron and his family.

    Say, I have an idea! Why doesn’t Mayor Moron take that $2,000 donated by Lakeview Monument (you know, his dad’s company?) and give it to one of the families his dad defrauded?

  32. 32 jezebel282

    Pat,

    We can only hope that Kent Miller represents Dick Miron. That way, he’ll go away for life.

  33. 33 1george1

    Officer sean,
    The term black and white has a rainbow of subjective interpretations.
    One is the ID of a police patrol car.
    You have already ID-ed a bunch of alledged abuses in the PD
    You have also taken a PRO – MIRON position or ANTI > ANTI-MIRON.

    If your allegations are TRUE, then Mayor Miron and Police Chief Burturla,
    with the AID of Town Attorney Burturla have been positioned to fill the
    INTERNAL AFFAIRS, with there OWN PERSONNEL, since about 20 % of the
    SENIOR PD have retired and there have been at least 12 PROMOTIONS.

    Since there has NOT been a massive expose of misconduct of the STFD PD,
    my conclusion is either that
    MIRON and BURTURLAs don’t care and are willing to have status quo
    or
    that maybe they are incapable of exposing such, because they lack ability,
    connections, and proof of which there “may be none” if your allegations
    have no merit.

    Do I believe there is merit to your claims?
    Yes and no.

    It is up to the POLITICAL JUSTICE SYSTEM to change my views.
    So far, it does not look so good for your team. So far…..

    What can you offer me and/or blog viewers anything to change views?
    Some bloggers / viewers will never change.
    Some, like GAVIN, JON, PCS, myself, Sudds, and perhaps Freedom may
    have more, repeat more, of an open mind among the bloggers.
    Yes GAVIN & JON have more political insight than most, although I
    think Jeze, PW, & Hand are probably close? (PW & HAND = Not blog)
    However, among the viewers …… you have a wider field.

    It is interesting that neither the PRO MIRON, nor ANTI MIRON factors
    have made any effort to bring in the GENERAL PUBLIC….

    Hmmmmm?

    Now you must cultivate the information.
    If you do, it may yield a bounty that will change many views.

    I have already blogged, my belief there are at least 2 sides to every issue.
    I “must” do nothing.
    What specific information is there to cultivate?

    What I do know is who the witness list were in my civil Trail vs. Mossman,
    and who the Attorneys, Judge, and Federal / State players were.
    Who were they protecting and why?
    Officer sean > care to give me specifics.

    Oh,
    Note that I never made a huge issue about arresting officers LoShiavo,
    Capossi, & Evans who did not do a COMPLETE, FULL, INTENSIVE, and
    UNBIASED INVESTIGATION, yet just served a misdemeanor disorderly
    conduct TICKET?
    Mossman could NOT get a SINGLE WITNESS for the criminal complaint!
    Mossman sought NO WARRANT.
    Mossman sought NO BLACK & WHITE, nor same NIGHT ARREST, just after
    a disagreement (which is my RIGHT), nor after I came back to the T. C.
    Meeting and peacefully sat 2 rows behind Mossman.

    Neither Mossman, nor U. S. Attorney Droney (became a Federal Judge in
    same building in chambers next to my Civil Trial) investgated a series of
    DEATHS, including FEDERAL EMPLOYEES & their FAMILIES (=Fed Jurisdiction)?

    Burturla’s firm kept my case from Kelly and NEVER investigated DEATHS,
    and performed Malicious Prosecution AND a nephew of friend of
    Burturla/Berchem “happened” to join my law firm the month before my
    Trial, “happened” to be assigned to my case, and “happened” to do such
    a representative job, I tried to go PRO SE?


    So cultivating the information I have …..
    Why should I trust ANYHING a BURTURLA or a MIRON says, does, or
    represents?
    Tell me PLEASE..

    It’s also only 8 AM here and I am just getting to my computer.

    I thought it was a rhetorical question as many of your others are. Also, your request is imposable to provide answers to.

    You already went to Williams, who you say screwed you. In other words, most lawyers do not litigate against the government in cases such as you claim, as well as the fact I assume its been more than 5 years, as well as the doctrine of res judicata has attached.

    Finally, you believe malfeasance, however that is hard to prove in court.

    I am not sure what you’re talking about under Color of Law ( know what it means in legal terms) so I can’t really answer anything to that. Black, White, Yellow, Pink….

    “OfficerSean” has disrupted the thread on the DM topic and has used diversion to try and get us off the subject. It’s a very simple 1L tactic. Jim, if you have something to say about what the real problem is in Stratford (not the Mayor of course) then post it, until then we will enjoy the self destruction of the first Mayor of Stratford and his dysfunctional family.

  36. From opensecrets.org – campaign donations in Dick Miron’s name:

    MIRON, RICHARD
    STRATFORD,CT 06615 LAKEVIEW MONUMENT CO./OWNER 3/22/06 $1,750 Connecticut Democratic State Centrl Cmte (D)
    MIRON, RICHARD

    MIRON, RICHARD A
    STRATFORD,CT 06497 TOWN OF STRATFORD 4/4/95 $300 Democratic State Central Committee

    This doesn’t include the donations made to his son’s mayoral campaign.

  37. Daddy Miron always had lots of apparently OTHER PEOPLE’S CASH to throw around. He drove a very BIG Lincoln Town car; dressed in stylish upbeat name brand clothes; had seasons tickets to all of the Ranger’s games and just loved dining in fancy New York restaurants on a regular basis. Always donated to Democrats, especially to his son’s campaigns using Lakeview Monument checks. He was always golfing at some far away exotic location. He always went first class. He wanted for nothing. Everything came easy – why not? It was always so easy to casually steal from others. So, he resigns. We are still going to take care of him – he lives with his girlfriend who landed a job with the Tax Collector who we pay a salary to and give benefits to. So don’t be jumping with too much joy – it isn’t over for us by a long shot. He still has the last laugh – so far! And, don’t underestimate his ability to land right back in the registrars office. Don’t ever underestimate him.

  38. 38 starlooker

    What worries me is that he will pull the same thing that he did the last time. Another person gets in, makes him the Deputy Chairman, they step down after a while and wham he is back in. Just keep a watchful eye on who is going to run and their relationship with the Mirons. Someone will be sacrificed to run so they can step down and he is back in.

  39. 39 jezebel282

    Star,

    Nothing will really get better until December ’09. It won’t happen then either unless the CRC makes the changes to the Charter (which charter did we vote for anyway?) that prevents this.

    This is why Ben Proto’s position (soon-to-be Town Attorney) is so outrageous. He along with Rich Fredette (yet another lousy candidate for Registrar) and Jim Orlowe ( at Dom Costello’s bidding) voted to take away our protection from hiring/firing abuse by the next King of Stratford.

  40. 40 equaker

    Jeze, I agree with you 100%- But if I post a comment like that,I fear it may get disected and spun a different way.

  41. 41 freedomofspeach

    Amazing, in most governments (state, federal, local) a manager is arrested on a financial crime charge, and thinking that DM used money on deposit, held in trust for others, for personal gain, then an outside (third party or govt agency) audit of his department or tax exempt organization would be conducted to see if there were any issues relating to his public position. Since the apple does not fall far from the tree, and the daughter was arrested on embezzlement related charges, might be more things to look at both the town and dem party level.

    Gavin, would you support a forensic investigation into the dem registrars’ office and the Stratford dem party accounts if he was an officer or leader of that?

    Audit Audit and Audit. Not some party hack either. TC make this happen, show your not water boys for the Mayor. If the dems don’t agree, get them on record that they wont support it.

  42. 42 jezebel282

    Err…Freedom?

    Except for Gavin, the dems ARE the Mayor’s water boys. I guess you haven’t heard the inane justifications Alvin ONeal, Emma Brooks and Amy Wanamaker come up with in support of Mayor Moron.

    But hey, if Miron called me a “backstabber” as he calls Gavin, I could probably win an election for mayor too. What other endorsement would you need?

  43. Read up Town Council members ~ an immediate audit of the Stratford Democratic Registrar’s offices is needed and requested on behalf of the citizens of the Town of Stratford. If anyone can push this to get done, it’s Mike Henrick! He’s proven above all that he’s no Miron water boy!

    Wasn’t it Jim Miron who vowed that audits would be done following all departures????? I think we’re still waiting on some.

  44. Pat,

    Better hurry to have one done in HR. The newly-appointed director was fired from his position in New York and fired from his position with Bridgeport. I don’t know what the background investigation revealed, if one was even conducted – but this person is another loser. But, before he begins his tenure or gets in too deep, as Jez has been calling for, an audit of HR should begin. And, to make matters even worse, the finance director knows that this should be done – was told many times by a trusted member of his staff that things are not right in this office – but continues to ignore the warning.

  45. Jez,

    It is indeed good to be home!

    “an immediate audit of the Stratford Democratic Registrar’s offices is needed and requested on behalf of the citizens of the Town of Stratford.”

    Pat the budget in that office is so small in comparision to the over all municipal budget not sure what you think you would find. Salaries make up for 50% of the total budget and they are defined at budget time without any overtime. The majority of the rest belongs to elections in terms of paying the poll workers.

    Who would you like to conduct the audit – if it’s an outside firm the cost would more than likely outweight the benefit – if it was John Norko’s office would you be satisified with the answer if it comes back that nothing is misappropriated?

  49. 49 gforrester

    Gavin, would you support a forensic investigation into the dem registrars’ office and the Stratford dem party accounts if he was an officer or leader of that?

    Audit Audit and Audit. Not some party hack either. TC make this happen, show your not water boys for the Mayor. If the dems don’t agree, get them on record that they wont support it.

    Again Freedom look at the budget on line – you tell me where anything could be misappropriated from those line items. Salaries pay for both registrar’s and their one person staff. There is no Democratic and Republican registrar’s budget but it is a combined office. How much in terms of tax dollars do you want to spend auditing a department with a budget that is about 1% of the budget, less than that if you want to split it in half and say 50% os democratic and 50% is republican.

    As far as auditing either political party the Town Council has no authority to request that as they are not municipal entities. Campaign finance reports are filed by each parties treasurer with the State of CT and a copy is on file with the Town Clerk for anyone to inspect.

  50. Gavin ~

    Jim Miron said that an audit would be conducted following every department head departure. There have been a few departures since that comment and to date, we have heard nothing about any audits which occurred. He made this “promise” following his Blum Shapiro audit where he publicly singled out and named Pat Naylor.

  51. 51 1george1

    Gavin & PCS,

    Your silence is deafening on the issues I raised.
    No comments at all.
    No comment about sympathy or lack of jurisdiction or rite revelry?

    As far as Registrar office,
    1) Or, why not have the Democrats and Republicans pay for their own PARTY PEOPLE?

    2) Or, why not simply defund it?

    3) Or, why not make it NON PARTISAN, without PARTY AFFILIATION, if the TAX PAYERS are going to PAY FOR IT?

    I know, there are Statutory LAWS, RULES, and REGULATIONS.
    But then I didn’t know MURDER & MALFEASANCE were acceptable, except on certain blogs and certain political justice circles?

  52. 52 freedomofspeach

    1george1, you are rambling and its hard to get a real fact pattern when you ramble. Also its off the thread so I have to dig to find what your talking about. Jez. Could you start a George page so we can keep a thread together?

    “Freedom of Speech >
    5 years for RES JUDICA”

    No Res Judicata means the case has already been judged, nothing to do with Statute of Limitations. Once the facts are heard and judgment made, the only real appeal is based on law. It was my understanding that these cases have been already heard.

    “> What statute of limitations is there for MURDER?”

    None, do you have a death certificate showing that this case was a homicide? If not, then it’s hard to get this back to court, unless an investigating shows that it is likely. I don’t know an attorney who will without major evidence go after a closed cold case without substantial evidence to the facts. If you’re looking for someone to investigate traffic accidents and tie them together into a conspiracy, your not going to find a lawyer to do that.

    “> And the case law for accessories before, during, and after the fact has
    an interesting thresh hold, which Williams had supplied a couple years
    before the Civil Trial. I strongly suspect Williams was co-erced, since the
    ramifications lead to Federal Judges, U. S. Attorneys (plural), F.B.I. and
    Federal / state / & multiple LOCAL Party personnel. Williams left a paper
    small/focused trail, which he did not have to do and is too smart and too
    tight to the vest to do, except to leave it as leverage.”

    And this means what; he left a document trail showing he was right?

    “Oh F. O. S.
    You did NOT recommend ANY HONEST LAWYERS, for ANY VENUE, did you?”

    Based on what you have told me and what I have gleaned from past posts, there is not a lawyer who would touch these cases. As such I would not attempt to recommend one.

    There is no specific venue for these accusations that you are making. Sorry. The courts are clear on what actions may be adjudicated; in order to get to court you have to have evidence that would stand up in court.

    “Oh F. O. S.
    You understand docketing right?”

    And what does this have to do with it?

    “My uncle died Sept 23, 1997.
    I chastize Mossman Dec 12, 1998 > Not investing series of Deaths
    (including my uncle/godfather/best friend)”

    So you’re saying the police did not investigate or that they found nothing? I read the above post on the traffic accidents. I am not sure that anyone could put them together and find anything. Are you saying that all these rear end accidents caused a death? If so then the accident report would make the decision on if it was misconduct with a MV or vehicular homicide.

    “I get arrested Dec 13, 1998
    > NO WARRANT
    > NO PURSUIT or EXIGENT
    > Day AFTER disagreement NOT REPORTED by 3 REPORTERS PRESENT
    who each filed stories about raucous Political Meeting”

    I hate to tell you, you missed a few. They don’t need a warrant to arrest you, and apparently they did. Arrest based on speedy information that the officer felt was reliable. It’s the second channel of arrest. But you appear to have received a misdemeanor summons, and a police office witnessed it, and they had a witness to make a statement, so no warrant was needed.

    “> (Debbie Rose does DEMOCRAT NO WITNESSES came FORWARD to SUPPORT Mossman’s claims”

    And this means what? She made a statement to police.

    “The Disorderly Conduct charge is nolle Oct 31, 2000.”

    So the criminal charges were dropped for some reason by the state. Why was it dropped?

    “The case goes to trial in Hartford (why up there?) Sept 16, 2004
    I had asked Williams and then the Judge for a different time frame
    due to the coming anniversary of the death of my Uncle/Godfather/
    Best Friend.”

    I assume this is the civil case you talk about. Depends if you sued a state agency then Hartford would be the jurisdiction. Not even sure what the basis of you case is and it maybe too old and not in the archives. Was this in state or federal court? What does you asking to have a different date do with anything? Also, no idea what the case was about so I can’t help you there.

    “Verdict entered SEPT 23, 2004
    7th Anniversary of the DEATH of my uncle/godfather/best friend”
    Ok, and I assume you lost.

    “Oh F. O. S.
    Isn’t there a MAGIC NUMBER related to 7 years of RESJUDICA in FEDERAL
    Statutes of limitations?”

    No idea what your refering to, the context is very fuzzy.

    Freedom,

    There is no boundary to George Mulligan.

    “Jez. Could you start a George page so we can keep a thread together?”

    If only….

    Yes, I could, but George would not use it. George could start his own blog too, it’s free. But he won’t.

    George has a special pass. As much as he…ummm…goes on…he truly does try to do the right thing for Stratford citizens.

  54. 54 equaker

    George, I can honestly sympathize,and understand how you must feel. I ‘ve lived in Stratford long enough(18yrs) to witness first hand how some of the departments which we pay dearly for operate.Zoning,B.O.E.,P.W.. Though I have never been arrested,I have called upon Stratfords finest for help on some serious issues during these years and am sorry to report that I’ve had little to no satisfaction from them in any instance. I’m not saying that the whole department is rampant with injustice, I know a few guys on the job who are the best and would do everything to see that the law is being upheld. But there are some inside it seems, that don’t really care about the general public,there are some it seems,that have another agenda than being a lawful officer,and there are some who believe they are the police,judge,jury and punisher all themselves. I’m sure it is the same on the state level as well and I can relate to you a report that I gave to the state in the mid ’90’s concerning a local buisness person who I had documented proof,witnesses,testimony of others against that was squashed beneath the feet of some of the very people you have named. I know my experiences are not on the same scale as yours but I have had that feeling of being raped of justice and having the ones that you are supposed to count on for support turn you away. You have my support.

    F. O. S.

    Similar to Whitey Bolger, what I am blogging is I believe certain F.B.I. / Justice
    actively participated in and/or covered up MURDER. for political reasons.

    I believe I made it clear NO POLICE will INVESTIGATE, because certain politically
    connected people PROTECT PATRONS.

    Further they control autopsy and investigation. Since you were the one who bought
    up Sean Bell in the past, which is no where near the massive level of crimes that have
    been committed through 2 + centuries by the USA or other governments, is it so hard
    to believe a completely vertical organization can committ and cover up murder.

    In the Church committee and subsequent USSR wet work, there is such a thing as NON DECERNIBLE BIO TOXINS.
    Experts in PATHOLOGY know organic (untraceable) substances can cause:
    > Heart Attacks
    > Cancer (accelorated)
    > Kidney failure

    As a self proclaimed high priced Lawyer, I suspect you have seen the spectrum
    of analygous political corruption; abuses of intelligence, trust, and profit; games
    for pyschic gratification, turf, and self preservation.

    I wondered if you KNEW 1 SINGLE GOVERNMENT LAWYER, JUST 1, who HAS
    INTEGRITY, whereas from my experience the world would be better off if
    all of the POLITICAL SUPER GRADERS, GOVERNMENT LAWYERS, and their
    SURROGATES / SYNCHOPHANTS all committed SUICIDE ??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I do NOT ADVOCATE such and WISH NO HARM to ANYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Let them live a long and prosperous life. I pray there is a GOD. I pray GOD
    will JUDGE them and let them rot in hell, forever.
    However, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER wished TEMPORAL HARM and I simply
    speculate if the world would be a better place if they were never born?

    Jeze, thank you for the FREE PASS.

    Even at your MEANEST ANTI-MIRON, I think I far exceeded exposing a
    personal MEAN STREAK (or HURT), which I contain.
    However, I never lied nor harmed anyone !!!!
    I always set forward an honest effort for corrective, not punitive acts!

    I know there are some decent government Lawyers.
    And more Lawyers are decent, who are non government ones.

    However, since the Military Political inJustice system are the ones who
    tried to make me a JOB – LIKE figure > back at them!

    Only a Christ, MLK, or Ghandi type people can forgive trespasses.
    I have not sought revenge, simply tried to exercise right to petition for
    redress of Grievances and protection of others and self.

    F. O. S.
    Let them kill off your family, and then you write without rambling. scum.

  56. 56 1george1

    equaker,

    you posted while I was blog ranting.

    I want to thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU
    for your personal SELF RESPECT in expressing sympathy, whether I ramble or not,
    and whether I could meet LEGAL THRESH HOLDS or NOT!

    There are a lot of good police.
    There are some bad police.
    There are some in between.
    My experience is that political connections trump Constitutional,
    Legal, Ethical, Moral, and even human decency in the Military and
    Paramilitary organizations, and certainly in the political justice ….

    equaker, I have first person conversations with at least 6 citizens who have
    been threatened for their political activity.
    NONE trust POLICE Management and Political Justice system!
    Can anyone blame them?

    In the early 1990s, one Town Councilor’s Car was FIRE BOMBED and the
    NEXT NIGHT another Town Councilor’s Barn was BURNED and POOL LINER
    was SLASHED. There are other documented TIMING situations….

    equaker, I honestly was expecting no one on this blog to express sympathy.
    This blog is an outlet to vent, probe, learn, teach.
    And I had created a blog and still have a website http://www.stratfordct.net

    I would rather be on a blog elsewhere, where I have NO CONTROL and
    NO WAY to prevent editting and manipulation, if it was chosen to do so?
    Why, despite potential of digital manipulation, my own blog ….

    “As a self proclaimed high priced Lawyer, I suspect you have seen the spectrum
    of analygous political corruption; abuses of intelligence, trust, and profit; games
    for pyschic gratification, turf, and self preservation.”

    First I never said I was a high priced lawyer that assumption was made by others. I just answered a question. My profession is irrelevant to my comments or opinions.

    The answer is yes I have seen a lot of things, but not all. I don’t have a problem with an attorney strongly advocating for their client in any forum, that’s what they do. I don’t have a problem with huge fees generated by them, you do get what you pay for. And as with all other things there are good and bad, as well as good and evil. When things go bad, I want the best, most hard nose lawyer I can find.

    “I wondered if you KNEW 1 SINGLE GOVERNMENT LAWYER, JUST 1, who HAS
    INTEGRITY, whereas from my experience the world would be better off if
    all of the POLITICAL SUPER GRADERS, GOVERNMENT LAWYERS, and their
    SURROGATES / SYNCHOPHANTS all committed SUICIDE ??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    I know a lot of government, and private sector lawyers who are dedicated and hard working for the taxpayers. They do their jobs within the constraints of the law. I actually know some who left the profession because they could not do their job in the way that they wanted.

    You can’t paint them all with the same brush.

    “Let them kill off your family, and then you write without rambling. scum.”

    You don’t know me and can’t understand what tragedies I have had in my life, or what others have had, and perceive what the causes and losses were. I am sorry for the losses you have had, but please don’t try and tell me how I would or do feel about things, or how I did or do react to them. We all have our demons, we all have had tragedies, its called life.

    I do understand that if you truly feel the way you feel, and if you perceive that you have been wronged, and if you cant get anyone to believe you, then you feel justice is not served. It becomes your reality.

    But I am sure there are people you might know who have had unfortunate events in their lives, divorces, lost their homes, custody issues, lost jobs, who no matter how hard they try to convince you, you know that some of the actions and reactions are truly their fault. They try and transfer that blame to others. I am not saying that your issues are not real, I don’t know, seems very far fetched, but its not like these things haven’t happened before, and they are real to you.

    Back to the subject at hand.

    Be well.

    From the CT Post

    Registrar will serve out term says son

    Meanwhile, it appeared Wednesday that Miron intends to serve as registrar until his term ends in January, and not step down immediately as language in a statement he issued after his arrest had led many to believe.

    However, Miron remained unavailable for a second day in a row to elaborate on his statement, and the indication that he plans to serve out his term was based on an “interpretation” of the letter by his son, Mayor James R. Miron.

    On Wednesday, the younger Miron said his father had not resigned, but that it is his “interpretation of the statement” that Richard Miron would continue to serve in the post he has held for 18 years until his term expires in January.

    “I fully support that decision, but as far as I know he has not resigned,” the mayor said. “I will also not make any comments regarding any personal or business issues involving my father.”

    FOS: He has to pay the loan against the towns retirement plan back when he leaves town employment. Wonder where he is going to get that money.

  59. 59 officersean

    Remember that song: “If God where one of us”?

    Let me say something here:

    This hatred directed against the Mayor is from people who obviously support another candidate or have some personal axe to grind.

    They literally have no legitimate or meritorious criticism of the Mayor and his job performance so they seek to sling mud on him based on what other persons who are related to him do.

    Rather than hanging out by a computer lying, gossiping, distorting, hating they should get off their arses and do something positive and proactive.

    I would first suggest church. Ask God for forgiveness. Remember: let he have no sins cast the first stone. Also, let us remeber that the sins of the father are not the sins of the son.

    What the father did was wrong. No one is defending that, including the Mayor.

    I only hope that you people do not have or work with children because your hate filled, lie distorted world is a bad example for the kids.

    God bless you all.

  60. 60 jezebel282

    Sean, buddy….

    Do we have to remind you about appropriating $500,000 of State tax money for his own comforts, hiring Mark Haddad, Rich Buturla’s brother John, having mayoral “aides” with no job description or discernible hours, rarely showing up for work, taking junkets on our coin, blowing off important meetings (like 500 teachers, administrators and citizens), conducting punitive and selective audits, losing 35 employees in 29 months…

    Proactive? You mean like acquiring the signatures of more than 10% of the registered voters in Stratford in less than 90 days? Or serving on the CRC?

    “They literally have no legitimate or meritorious criticism of the Mayor and his job performance so they seek to sling mud on him based on what other persons who are related to him do.”

    Jim, you really ought to get Heather to write these for you.

  61. George ~

    I apologize. I haven’t responded because I didn’t have extra time yesterday to digest your posting. I started reading it, and sometimes, like others, get a little lost.

    Sean ~

    I don’t have a personal axe to grind as far as Miron is concerned. My disgust is with what Jim Miron has done – before and after he was elected. I didn’t vote for him and have no family members who were on the receiving end of his axe.

    Jim Miron is not and has not been a leader. The only thing he has going for him is his ability to speak well, publicly. He puts on a great presentation, but it’s all fluff and no sincerity. There are some people, however, who will continue to be wooed by that.

    What he’s done now – “interpret” his father’s resignation as a resignation after his term is completed, is just unbelievable. It’s like every other “interpretation” he’s made – spun to his favor.

    Serving on CRC #1 precluded him from running or accepting a paycheck from the Town; however, spun his way – and opined by a buddy – he was allowed to.

    There’s tons of BS coming out of his “bunker” and his mouth. No matter how eloquently spoken, it’s still BS. He puts so much spin on things, the taxpayers are left dizzy and not knowing which end is up.

    I’ve said it before – I don’t know the man, but the mayor stinks!

  62. He is going to fill out the remainder of his term as registrar… I told you, don’t underestimate this family! He’ll be back before we know it.

  63. 63 jezebel282

    Cyclops,

    Dick Miron as registrar of Voters in the largest presidential election in memory? We sure are lucky here in Stratford. It’s a good thing Pat Ulatowksi oversaw the installation of the new voting machines.

  64. 64 freedomofspeach

    I am not sure why the party wont force him to step down considering the civil court case for theft of over $100,000 and now the criminal charges, with sources saying many more are coming, like at least 4 more counts. Since both are related to a breach of trust and fiduciary responsibility, fraud, and theft, why would the party he belongs to not make him step down? Why would his son, the Mayor, not ask him to?

    Oh this is Stratford and everyone is waiting for some sort of buy/cash out. Oh and it’s a Miron.

    And Gavin, about the audit, well if he stole or misappropriated $1.00 from the town, and that’s kind of likely, it will make it that he will never serve in a public office again. The townspeople deserve to know if that is a fact.

    I remember hearing that there was some sort of cover-up in Hamden or North Haven that ended up with the towns finance director being arrested for hiding evidence. Think, that might be going on here? If not, then Mayor Miron will have no problem allowing a TC selected auditor reviewing the operations that Father Miron managed. And you can have the money transferred from other accounts just like the Mayor does. And if he does not allow it, then its obviously a no confidence vote.

    Maybe he is hoping that by the time Jan rolls around, he will have settled with the state on the consumer protection action, and then go bankrupt, not pay the fines and the money he stole, and not have to pay back the loan to the town. Since he will owe taxes, the IRS and then the state will have first dibs on the money that secured the loan, and the town will be out the $10 grand. I hear he does not have the condo in his name or its in more than one name.

    Interesting plan.

    Also Gavin and TC, still waiting to see who B & L is, are they registered with the state? Who are they, what are their licenses to do the work? Where’s the report? Is DM getting a piece of this job?

    Jim Miron told me in his meet the mayor, early in his term:
    “All publicity is good Publicity.”

    Still true? 😦

    I don’t respect either Dick, and they contributed harm to me & mine.
    I actually pity dick miron.

    As for Burturla ….
    Thanks to Jim Miron, son of Dick, Burturla has made over $ 500,000 each
    of the last 2 years and a minimum of $ 5,000,000 since 1996, thanks to the
    help of Dick Miron. If I was Dick Burturla, I would have loaned Dick Miron
    $ 50,000 – $ 80,000 at low interest and paid for Term Insurance policy, so
    when Dick dies (which does not look far away), Burturla would be repaid.

    There are many ways this could have been done, to be untraceable. And
    if Burturla had to give up the Town Attorney position, in order to do so,
    if he were a good friend of Dick Miron, whose help has helped Burturla
    get other positions in other Towns, so what?
    > It is not like Berchem lacks Putz & Schmucks to cover the position.
    > Oh, I forgot, Burturla has AVCO, AIRPORT, & SHAKESPEARE on the Agenda.

    Hey Dick, the way african tribesmen catch monkeys is to put cookies in a
    wide bottom, narrow neck vase, and anchor the base.
    > All the monkey has to do is unclench his fist, to let go of the cookie in
    order to get away, so he could slide his hand out of the vase…. 8)
    > Monkeys get trapped, because they won’t let go of the cookie. 😉

    Thank you again. I neglected to express empathy for your past experiences,
    which, to a degree mirror my experiences, with similar people.

    It also gives blog concurrance that my experience, in town, is not exclusive.

    e-quaker, your concurrance gave pause to the posters and very likely to the
    viewers. As such, it may lead to others coming forward about the bigger
    problems than the mirons / burturlas, who are bad enough!

    Even Dick Miron has the self image that he was the good guy, from a brief
    conversation with him.

    Mossman could not look me in the eye…

    At Town Council Meetings, when I move to sit in the front row, left center,
    Burturla will put his left hand to the side of his head, blocking his eyes from
    me, and he will even turn his back to me, to face the Chairman….

    For awhile, Dick Miron could not look me in the eye….

    2 years ago, I crashed a DTC Meeting and had a brief one to one conversation
    with Tony Schirillo. His response?
    Whenever we speak, you make me feel so bad ……….

    LoSchiavo sought me out at the end of a Town Council Meeting. I explained
    I knew the politics of the Blue Wall, and I do not believe he and the other 2
    had anything to do with the deaths which I sought investigation. However he
    and they did not do anything about those.
    LoSchiavo has been expecting a follow up …..
    Meanwhile, he knows what he did and didn’t do …..

    =

    When people are alone at night or shave in the mirror or put on makeup,
    they have confort when they think they got away with something…..
    However, when they know and realize they were wrong
    And when they know there will be consequences, it makes for mental
    anguish, which leads to physicial problems.

    =

    There are people outside of Stratford, who will torment them far worse
    than a guilty conscience….

    They always kill the assassins, who kill the assassins…
    ALWAYS!

    Freedom,

    I was blogging, while your latest was posted.
    So my thank you was for your thoughts and sentiments from
    the earlier blog.
    Perhaps you do not remember all of your blogs, since you wrote you
    get paid several hundred thousand dollars, which led me to blog you
    are a high priced lawyer. Not that I would get the time of Day from
    anyone you admire as an HONEST LAWYER, but I would like JUST ONE
    NAME of someone you regard as BEING PERSONIFICATION of VIRTUE in
    the LAW PROFESSION? Just one!!
    Oh. Equaker had no problem following my rambling.

    I appreciate and expressed empathy and sympathy to equaker,
    who has similar town experience of quashed complaints.

    Freedom,

    “Maybe he is hoping that by the time Jan rolls around, he will have settled with the state on the consumer protection action, and then go bankrupt, not pay the fines and the money he stole, and not have to pay back the loan to the town.”

    Since Dick Miron’s attorney specializes in bankruptcies, I assumed that was the plan from the beginning.

    Apparently Dick appears to have managed a “get out of jail free” card too:

    Docket No:F02B-CR08-0233074-SProgram: Court:Arresting Agency:Arrest Date:Bond Amount: $0 (This case only) Bond Type:
    Activity: Arraignment Next Court Date: 5/22/2008 10:00 AM

    Miscellaneous: Bridgeport GA 2 LOCAL POLICE BRIDGEPORT 5/13/2008$0 (This case only)Promise to Appear

  68. 68 1george1

    One of the benefits of being arrested for the pretextual Disorderly
    Conduct charge was to see the complete disgrace which is the
    Criminal Justice System.

    The Assistant State Prosecutor meet the charged.
    If you have political connections or lawyer with political connections,
    then you get special treatment.

    If you are someone like me, who asks embarassing questions about the
    political scum in the White House, Senate, Congress, local & state
    officials and the slimey blue wall, there is a mark on the case file to
    give a hard time.

    If one is black, hispanic, or simply poor and especially young and/or
    ignorant / unconnected, then these LOW LIFES STATE’S ATTORNEYS
    BULLY & POSTURE.

    Once the people go before the JUDGE, the Prosecutors are puppets
    who play the ROLE, when the JUDGE asks them rhettorical questions.

    These States Prosecutors and Public Defenders APPEAR to BUILD UP
    favors from existing LAW FIRMS, for the time the will retire from the
    State Position, to go into PRIVATE PRACTICE…..

    Suppose there was 1, let’s call him HARRY JOE BOOTLICKER.
    Suppose each WEEK he would get 1 CASE where he could GAIN a future
    FAVOR from a LAWYER or LAW FIRM.
    Suppose 1 particular LAW FIRM accessed and gained favorable situation
    for their respective clients every 2 months on average, or 6 times a year
    over a 20 year period, for H J BOOTLICKER.
    From those 120 cases, the LAW FIRM could have earned $ 5,000,000
    in DIRECT COMPENSATION and $ 100,000,000 in FUTURE COMPENSATION.

    Now when H J BOOTLICKER does NOT get an Appointment to the FED
    or STATE BENCH, will any LAW FIRM refuse for PAY HIM $ 200,000 a year
    or MORE, for a couple of years, until he is ready for Private Practice?

    The more cocaine and meth that gets on the street, the more JOB
    SECURITY Judges, Prosecutors, Trial Attorneys, & General Practicioners
    have to get fast and easy money…
    Can’t pay the Attorney?
    Easy enough…
    He will get a 2 month continuance, so the kid can sell more drugs to
    come up with the money for the Attorney & Bail Bondsmen who each
    go to Dinners and Campaign Fund Raisers as a form of Kick Back to the
    people who appoint the JUDGES.

    Why is the WAR on DRUGS a 40 year failure, where it cost $ 60,000
    a year to jail a kid and $ 12,000 a year to Educate a kid -> Publicly?

    Could it be Freedom & Jim /Officer sean / Florek / Proto / Dicks
    & others, that the Political Justice System of Elected / Appointed
    Fed / State Judges –
    Fed / State / Town Attorneys –
    Fed / State / Local Enforcement –
    are selfish drones, every bit as destructive as military WAR planners?

    Freedom of Speach > Crime pays, doesn’t it?
    Especially if one passes the BAR, and savors the WHINE, while making
    sure the masses get KOOL AID.

    Yo, Notice the PRICE & QUALITY of
    PERSCRIPTION DRUGS &
    CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES

    On the former there are constant recalls on QC & price increases
    On the latter the quality retains FDA levels, while prices stay low
    and the discreet distribution networks is uninterupted.

    Oh Freedom, I’ll bet you will attribute my synopsis about your
    PROFESSION as being rambling and unintelligible, yet,
    most readers will understand EXACTLY what they allowed in the
    USA! I hope those in Maclean, Arlington, D. C., & Langley who
    can intercept any e-mail or phone call if it has KEYWORDS in it
    like BOMB, AL QUADA, TERRORIST ATTACK, ASSASSINATE a V. P.
    or some such NON SENSE understand the concept, which will
    casue harm to those they love and care about – of

    George,

    I’m giving you your own page. Could you please keep it to Stratford on the other pages?

  70. 70 gbcheddarheader

    WELL IT’S BEEN MONTHS, LIFE HAS BEEN JUST TO BUSY LATELY AND YOU KNOW THAT I’VE READING JUST DON’T HAVE A LOT OF TIME TO COMMENT THESE DAYS. BUT YOU KNOW I JUST COULDN’T GET BY WITH OUT COMMENTING ABOUT DICK AND JUMBO MORE ABOUT DICK THOUGH CAUSE HE’S JUST ONE MORE SHINING EXAMPLE OF WHY WE VOTERS SHOULD WORK EVEN HARDER TO RID STRATFORD OF THE NASTY INFESTATION THAT HAS OVER RUN THE TOWN HALL.
    BUT THEN I’M THINKING THERE’S NOT GOING TO BE TOO MUCH HARD WORK TO BE HAD OTHER THAN A GOOD FUMIGATION BECAUSE THE DIP WAD’S KNOWN AS THE MIRON’S ARE DOING A PRETTY GOOD JOB ON THEIR OWN. SO STRATFORD JUST KEEP READING YOU’LL DEFINITELY HAVE YOUR HEAD ON STRAIGHT THIS TIME AROUND WHEN YOU VOTE FOR THE NEW MAYOR.
    OH YEAH AND OFFICER SEAN (WHAT A JOKE) I HAVE TWO QUESTIONS FOR YOU AND THEN SOME COMMENTS ON YOUR HILARIOUS POST.
    1. IS YOUR GUN BIGGER THAN JUMBO’S
    2. IS IT TRUE THAT ONE SIZE FITS ALL WHEN WEARING A BULLET PROOF VEST.
    SO WITH OUT FURTHER ADO………….
    OFFICER SEANS SAY……………….
    Remember that song: “If God where one of us”?

    THANK THE LORD HE’S NOT YOU.

    Let me say something here:
    This hatred directed against the Mayor is from people who obviously support another candidate or have some personal axe to grind.

    NO SIR JUST PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS TO THIS TOWN. UNLIKE THE VERMIN THAT HAS INFESTED THE TOWN HALL. THE AXE TO GRIND WILL TRAVEL IN FULL SWING ONCE THE NEW MAYOR HAS BEEN ELECTED. I SAY THAT THE FIRST BIG INVESTMENT SHOULD BE TO CALL THE ORKIN MAN AND FUMIGATE TOWN HALL TO RID IT OF THE NASTY INFESTATION THAT HAS OVERTAKEN THE TOWN HALL.

    They literally have no legitimate or meritorious criticism

    HMMMMMM……………..ARE YOU SURE YOU WANTED TO USE MERITORIOUS???
    ACCORDING TO MERRIAM WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY: MER•I•TO•RI•OUS
    PRONUNCIATION: \ˌMER-Ə-ˈTȮR-Ē-ƏS\

    I GUESS IT’S TOO MUCH THE THINK THAT YOU NUMBSKULLS STILL CAN’T WRITE SOMETHING INTELLEGENT AFTER ALL THESE MONTHS. NEXT TIME GET HEATHER TO PROOF YOUR COMMENTS SO YOU MAYBE WON’T LOOK AS STUPID AS WE ALL KNOW YOU TO BE.

    of the Mayor and his job performance so they seek to sling mud on him based on what other persons who are related to him do.

    SO WHERE’S THE MERIT IN JUMBO’S JOB PERFORMANCE? TO DATE WHAT HAS HE DONE EXCEPT TO FIND NEW AND EXCITING WAYS TO ROB THIS TOWN BLIND AND CRAP ALL OVER THE GOOD CITIZENS OF STRATFORD?

    Rather than hanging out by a computer lying, gossiping, distorting, hating they should get off their arses and do something positive and proactive.

    LIKE JUMBO AND HIS MERRY MEN ???

    I would first suggest church. Ask God for forgiveness.

    MAYBE YOUR FATHER SHOULD TAKE SOME OF THIS ADVICE AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS, WHAT A DISGUSTING LOW LIFE PIECE OF SCUM HE IS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY SUFFERING FROM TREMENDOUS LOSS. WAY TO GO DICK!!!

    Remember: let he have no sins cast the first stone. Also, let us remeber that the sins of the father are not the sins of the son.

    WHAT A JOKE, CAUSE THE APPLE DOESN’T FALL TO FAR FROM THE TREE REMEMBER THAT ONE.

    What the father did was wrong. No one is defending that, including the Mayor.

    THEN DEMAND THE FATHER’S RESIGNATION AND RESTITUTION TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT HE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF.

    I only hope that you people do not have or work with children because your hate filled, lie distorted world is a bad example for the kids.

    YEAH THAT’S A GOOD ONE OFFICER SEAN!! ACTUALLY IN A HATE FILLED, LIE DISTORTED WORLD, WE WOULD BE BLAMING THE VICTIMS, SAYING THEY GOT WHAT THEY DESERVED FOR NOT DOING A FULL BACKGROUND CHECK OF DICK AND THAT DICK WAS ACTING AS A PERFECTLY NORMAL HUMAN BEING BY FULFILLING HIS NATURAL NEED TO TAKE MONEY FOR SOMETHING HE DIDN’T DO. AFTER ALL ISN’T THAT WHAT THE WELFARE SYSTEM HAS BECOME ALL ABOUT?

    God bless you all.

    STOP THE BLASPHEME OF HIS NAME, WE ARE BLESSED.

    MAYBE THE HELL CANDIDATE UP THERE IN TOWN HALL SHOULD TAKE SOME OF YOUR ADVICE.

  71. 71 jezebel282

    Ahhhh…nice to see GB is the same sweet self we remember!

    (Except for that poor choice of football teams)

  72. 72 gbcheddarheader

    That was low, I might have to start shopping around next year find a better team say like the Patriots!!!!

  73. 73 freedomofspeach

    I find it amazing how a person who is indigent as DM claims to be (he can’t pay any bills or return the money he stole) and who was supposed to be bonded out, got a Promise to Appear release instead. Me thinks that some strings were pulled by the Mayor.

    News people, this is a great questions to ask, as you reported he had a bond requirement. Add this to the back door surrender, and it looks like a story on political favoritism.

    What did Miron call his buddy Willinger? You know the guy who’s law office was raided by the FBI in a corruption scandal and was one of the bag men for the Bridgeport Mayor. The rest of us would have had to do a perp walk, as well as post the house for a bond.

    Nice thought is that he can only use Accelerated Rehabilitation once, like his daughter he will use up his one and only get out of jail free card on this charge. The next 4-6 charges, some from different departments, if the politicos don’t allow him to merge counts, he can’t AR out of them. He would have to take the convictions and do the time. He wont get jail time, just long probation.

    Hey sudds where are my signs??????

  74. 74 freedomofspeach

    CORRECTION

    Please allow me to correct my statement, as a word seems to have disappeared, “allegedly one of the bagman for the Bridgeport Mayor”

  75. 75 freedomofspeach

    Next shot, lets get the truth on the Mayor, maybe they can share cells.

    FROM THE CT POST

    Richard Miron must resign post
    Article Last Updated: 05/15/2008 07:31:53 PM EDT

    Richard Miron, Stratford’s Democratic registrar of voters, must step down from his position immediately for the good of his community and its voters.

    Miron, who has been engulfed for the past five months in complaints of failing to deliver as many as 80 cemetery headstones purchased from his now defunct monument business, was arrested Tuesday on larceny charges by Bridgeport police.
    Local law enforcement and state officials have indicated Tuesday’s arrest could be the first of a series of similar charges to be lodged against Miron.

    For that reason and the fact that state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has already filed legal action in Superior Court seeking restitution and civil penalties against him, Miron should resign his post, attend to his mounting legal problems, and make way for his deputy to take over the registrar’s duties.

    This is a presidential election year with candidates for Congress and the General Assembly as well as a handful of local offices on the ballot. It requires much more work and preparation than other election cycles, including late voting by presidential ballot.

    After his arrest Tuesday, Miron, in a vaguely worded e-mail statement, said he would not be seeking re-election to his post this November, but it continues to be unclear whether he will step down before his term ends in January.

    His son, Stratford Mayor James R. Miron said he interpreted his father’s letter as meaning he would serve out his term, but the elder Miron remains unavailable for comment.

    Miron’s remaining in the part-time registrar’s post only continues to exert a negative impact on Stratford, which already has garnered more than its share of unfavorable attention.

    Many of the families who have accused Miron of bilking them have steadfastly maintained that his personal business problems would receive scant attention from public officials because of his lengthy political connections.

    We firmly don’t think that will be the case. However, the elder Miron should resign immediately to assure the efficient running of the Democratic registrar’s office and to effectively eliminate any suggestion of political favoritism in the handling of his personal legal woes.

    FOS: Lets see 80 counts of Larceny in the third degree punishable by 1 to 5 years and/or up to $5,000, add a couple of crimes against the elderly, and he might just get to spend some time counting inmates rather than votes.

  76. 76 1george1

    Freedom,

    Based on his latest resume, I surprized “W” hasn’t hired him for a
    White House gig.

    Hey Kevin O’Connor is now # 3 in the Justice Department,
    and if “W” uses the same qualifications that fit for Gonzales,
    Mike Brown, Ashcroft, and others, then maybe Dick Miron
    can find a D. C. spot, like K. O’Connor.

    And because the STONE HEARTED, ROCK HEADED, DEAD BEAT
    loves pretty rocks with writing, they have a lot of that in D. C.

    And maybe other people like Burtula & Norm can relocate too?

    Since this blog is called arresting developments, I wonder how
    many bloggers believe most senators, congress, and politically
    appointed, ranking bureaucrats at Federal, State, and LOCAL
    levels, do not belong in jail?

    Certainly we have multiple local candidates for conviction?

  77. 77 gbcheddarheader

    George I have to agree with you there, I say this entire country needs to clean house and start fresh.

    Stratford just needs to clean house period!! I think vermin like the Miron’s need to be extracated and there needs to be new blood running the show. It’s time Stratford washed away the sins of the father and I would also bet there are plenty of sins of the son as well. Why do you think he fired everyone and there’s no one left with experience in town hall. Jumbo needs to surround himself with his little evil minions to make sure that no one knows questions what he’s doing and Lord knows with all that experience walking the halls of town hall now can they really know what’s truly going on.

    I say the residents of Stratford should DEMAND a full audit of the books to really see what Jumbo and his band of merry men have been up to.

  78. 78 freedomofspeach

    Jez, have you gotten the info yet?

  79. 79 1george1

    I still can not believe that R Burturla had not come to help R Miron,
    before this mess got out of hand, unless there are more things than
    meets the eye?

    We know the Town & Board of Ed paid R B, between $ 5 & $ 7 m since
    1996, with every year being 6 figures & each of the last 2 years being
    $ 1/2 m.

    We know that R B & R M were almost joined at the hip for most of those
    years, whenever one was seen around town hall.

    Obviously we know J M appointed R B as T A, for that $ 1/2 m, while dad
    was making under $ 30 k.

    We also know a T A has influence and some things like Pensions and some
    contract awards “might” mean as much Revenue as the visible payments.

    We also know that being a T A and asst T A gives experience and credibility
    to get similar posts in other Towns and BoEs, which adds to the Revenue,
    and Dick Miron & Rich Burturla activity in the “D” party with surrogates &
    psuedo “R” supporters, help the overall revenue.

    Looking at a scale trying to balance mutual benefits, it appears that Dick
    Burturla got the better of the trade. Heck, the scale between Jim M &
    John B, is virtually equal…..

    My experience is that at a certain age, it is time to move out a Mafia boss
    to move in new blood, and there are changing of the guards in political
    bosses, too, and in both cases the older ones don’t have a happy ending
    in too many cases. (unless you don’t like them)

    I also noticed the local bar asssociation had a dinner honoring a second
    generation judge …. at Mario Testa’s Restaurant ????

    We also know there is ALWAYS an angle or a game being played.

    The question is, what is the real agenda? I have my suspicions…
    Could there be “resting developments,”
    while there are “arresting developments?”

  80. 80 jezebel282

    Freedom,

    Yes I did. However, the cases seem to have little relevance and do not connect directly to interested(ing?) parties.

    Editor’s note: “Dumstein” continues to spam this site and is blocked. “Officer Sean” and “Dumstein” are the same person. I assume there will be others.

  81. 81 gbcheddarheader

    Dumstein???? Rhymes with???????????????????????
    Someone’s getting scared!!!

  82. 82 gbcheddarheader

    Not sure what happened here, post didn’t go through,
    But does dumstein sound a little like……….?

  83. 84 1george1

    GB

    I believe the dumstein is a slap (semi – slander / anti-semetic?) at David
    Blumstein (How is Pat?) who was a prominent petitioner.
    > dum backwards = mud (like TalMUD)
    > dum (no b or bee)
    > stein is german from stone. Many jewish are AskeNAZIm, German/East Europe.
    Yiddish is kinda of a German / Jewish mixture

    In Europe and even the USA, the ranking intelligencia would use TAG NAMES
    for psychological effect of gaining positive identification.

    (One reason I believe British Intelligence was behind Rudolph Hess, as the
    Hebrew alphabet begins with what looks like an s (or the alpha = beginning
    = highest, ergo ss, becomes highest of the high. Of course the Nazi SS was
    the antithesis. And the use of the abbreviation of NAZI for national socialist,
    was I believe a quite intentional way to suggest to AshkeNAZIm Jewish that
    it was really a pro-Jewish group. Most people/culture are vulnerable to the
    Graven image of affirmative ICONS.)

    How all this relates to Stratford is that I believe the TAG NAME Dumstein
    is anti-semitic and a slap at David B, and many of the blogger / viewers,
    who are also Jewish, among whom support Jon Best.
    > I like Jon as a person, but do not support as a candidate.
    > Obviously, Jon has a wide range of supporters and critics.

    GB,
    The bloggings of one who calls himself dumstein or officersean appears to
    be the Mayor or certainly one of the Mayor’s supporters.

    The officersean postings would make for interesting reading at Police HQ,
    since it portrays MANY of Stratford’s police in a VERY UNFLATTERING WAY.

    Despite or perhaps of because of my problems with Mossman (Republican
    appointment I believe) I gained Respect from many Stratford Police because
    I fought the system by the book.
    > D Burturla / D Miron & friends needed to cheat to beat me in Civil Court.

    I will not articulate several instances where this support was manifested with
    not just respect, but kindness by several of Stratford PD, so as not to expose
    them to reprisal and color of the law. However, it was real and by multiple
    officers, via multiple occasions over the years. There are a lot of GOOD COPS!

  84. George ~

    I sent an e-mail to Dave Blumstein today. Pat is doing good ~ coming along well.

  85. 86 1george1

    Thanks PCS,

    There are some who criticize Patty U or Carol C, or might to Pat B.
    Personally, I never had pause to consider questioning their integrity.
    Every request was done or responded to appropriately as far as I can
    tell. I have never gotten everything I asked for, but some things are
    beyond the legitimate pale.

    It is because of Carol C, as a person, that I chose not to make issue
    about certain things about her husband Bill C.

    My dealings with Pat B, were / are nominal, compared to Carol C &
    Patty U. She was / is OK.

    Even so, I wish everyone to be healthy, happy, and have a long life.

    Some … when they meet their maker ….
    While Mirons / Burturlas are jerks, I doubt they make my top 100 …

  86. 87 gbcheddarheader

    George,
    You are very astute about your speculations of who “Dumstein”/OfficerSean is. It’s pretty clear as you can read the syntax and see that it’s Miron/many of the evil minions. How sad that our tax dollars are paying for this imbecile and/or his lackey’s to monitor the blog and post incoherent comments.

    If I were the “real” officers of the Stratford PD, I’d take note of the ugly disrespect that Jumbo pays to them. I guess since there’s no longer any “lazy” employees left in town hall he’s focusing is ugliness on Stratford’s finest. Too bad for them, but oh there is definitely light at the end of the tunnel for those guys cause little jimmy and the minions will be standing in line at the unemployment office before too long. The sad part is that we’ll still be paying the unemployment for those losers even after they’ve vacated town hall. There’s truly no justice is there.

    Oh yeah George, Anti-Semetic, isn’t that Jumbo’s middle name, Jimmy “Anti-Semetic” Miron. Calling Jewish women “bitches” and I’m sure some other colorful names. But that’s what Jumbo’s all about now isn’t it.

    Can’t wait for the election, can’t wait!!!!

  87. Survey results ~ 93.7% believe that Jim Miron should request the immediate resignation of his father, Dick Miron. Father or not – he’s got to go….NOW!

    Oh, and is there a list anywhere of every Town Employee who gets a Town supplied car? I noticed a car with the license plat “S-6” in a certain Patterson Avenue driveway. I just don’t understand the logic in a part-time employee being supplied a vehicle.

  88. 89 jezebel282

    PCS,

    Patterson Ave?

    Dick Miron is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday May 22, 2008. I think a welcoming committee on the steps of the courthouse would be nice, if anyone can take a long lunch that day…..

  89. Jeze ~

    Yes, his address is listed on Patterson Avenue. The same address as a certain girlfriend of his.

    If only I worked in B-port. I used to work in the G.A. long ago, quite a daily circus there.

  90. Pat,
    Ask for the assigned car list from the CAO and/or the PW Director – it is public information and cannot be withheld. Barbara Gorman, Daddy Miron’s girlfriend lives on Patterson Ave and he lives with her. Why would a pw car be at that address? Perhaps she needed some maintenance work done??????

  91. 92 1george1

    A close friend has many Jewish friends and government contacts.
    His version of a conversation at a VFW, was dramatically diferent
    than the official version. My friend was not there and so what I
    have is hearsay, but it was decidedly anti-Semetic IF TRUE.

    Some of my postings caused grief to a Jewish person who communicates
    with me. Because I explained circumstances from the past and the fact
    that there were Catholics, Protestants, Mason/Shriners, Jewish, and a
    whole range of people who were called upon to affect my past, she was
    able to understand that I was not Anti-Semetic and my comments were
    the anti-thesis of anti Semitic.

    There was a letter to the Editor today or yesterday, where the Israeli
    Press are able to host a broader spectrum of opinions relating to the
    Israeli / Palestine – Arab issues, in that NO SIDE is 100 % correct, to be
    putting it kindly & mildly.

    And even good people with good intentions can cause big problems.

    Soon Dick Miron will be out of the picture, as will many of his devotees.

    Stratford will still have problems, just one less provacatuer. And the Devil
    you know, is sometimes not as bad as his replacements.

    Where has Burturla been in helping Dick Miron?

    1. Some chump change could have solved the Tombstone mess?

    2. Some political and legal advise would have pre-empted problems?

    3. Isn’t Burturla aware of the damage Dick Miron could do to Berchem,
    based on what Dick knows about Stratford awards, change orders,
    appointments, fees, and all kinds of financial and legal situations?

    4. Isn’t Burturla aware of the damage Dick Miron could do to Berchem,
    based on what Dick knows about Milford, Shelton, Bridgeport, Fairfield,
    Norwalk, Hartford, D.C. & other contracts, clients, awards, change orders,
    appointments, fees, and all kinds of financial and legal situations?

    If I am Jim Miron, I would truly, truly wonder whose side Burturla was on?

    And if he came to the same conclusion that I have that Esq. Burtula and
    Police Chief Burturla are like foxes in the Hen House (& I think John is
    more honest & capable than Rich, yet I wonder IF there are LIMITS) then
    we might have more turn overs.

    While Mr. & Mrs. LoSchiavo have been apply rewarded for loyalty and the
    upper Police and Fire have too, the moneys spent in 2007 / 2008 for Police,
    Fire, Attorney, and PENSIONS are in Black and White.
    > The rationale may be good for cover stories, but is not “good” management
    practices, never mind “best” management practices.

    Stratford has bigger problems than who Dick beds?
    In fact at 72 and in poor health, if Dick satisfies at least one Stratford resident,
    then he appears to be ahead of some others?

    Pat – I’ll get a list of Town owned vehicles assigned to staff. I do know that the plate S-6 is a municipal plate but I believe that the vehicle is owned by Mr. Miron but as a result of both his and Mr. DeCilio’s elected position they are both entitled to use municipal plates on their private vehicles since they use there cars for “official” business during voter registration drives and elections. I don’t know if Mr. DeCilio is using a municipal plate but I believe that his predecessor Mr. Dean Paradise did have a muni plate on his vehicle.

  93. 94 1george1

    What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a municiple plate
    on a personal car?

    Or are municiple plates only used on municiply owned vehicles?

    Are there mileage and other expense related financial considerations,
    which could be used or abused?

    Are there Federal, State, and/or Local Tax advantages?
    If so, what are they? Inquiring minds… 😉

  94. 95 jonbest

    This issue came up several years ago in the Town of Seymour. The issue should be who insures the vehicle if it has municipal plates and what are the rules for usage?
    How do you seperate personal use from offical use.

    Hope this helps

    George,

    The relationship between Buturla and Miron will be answered two ways. Either a forensic audit of Berchem, Moses & Devlin’s books or what Jim Miron’s starting salary will be in December ’09 when he’s hired by Berchem, Moses & Devlin.

  96. 97 1george1

    Hi Jon,

    You got to the core of my point.
    Although the specific advantages & disadvantages would be interesting.

    Jeze,
    I saw Jim Miron, Rich Burturla, and a few Town Councilors last night at
    the Building needs Committee. They did not appear happy with me.

    Could be about the 5 page overview of the 2 days of Budget Work Shops,
    which I e-mailed to C.A.O. McCauley & Finance Dir. Norko..
    1 more Budget Workshop to go Wed nite. What a mess this town is!
    Can’t pin it all on Jim & Burturla. However I did point out plain and clear
    examples of mismanagement and political priorities in 2006 – 2007 ->.
    As far as Jim getting into the Berchem firm, it still existing = highly likely!

  97. 98 jezebel282

    George,

    I doubt Mayor Moron is happy about anything lately. The only thing he seems to be successful at is firing people. Not many of those left. I doubt any of the ones he did hire would bother trying to make him look good either. Well, maybe Heather Habelka or Ashley Heydu, but that’s only because they have nothing else to do.

  98. 99 1george1

    Actually, Jeze, the Mayor recommended a 1 acre piece of land on or just
    off access road, next to Burns Construction for the Animal Shelter.

    It looks like it is a good fit. It is owned by the Town and has very few
    residential neighbors. It has been sent to Committee. Alvin will have a
    Hearing for the 2nd District in June. It may reach Town Council vote
    by July. Jim gets an attaboy. Gotta give credit, despite displeasing the
    blogosphere.

    Ben Proto made a well documented and reasoned presentation about
    needing a new traffic study for the Avallone Bay Special Meeting.
    > I didn’t realize there were tight limits on topics.
    > Once informed, I was able to make a point on School Bus Traffic,
    which actually laid some foundation for Ben’s argument. He was not
    present when I spoke.

    Jon made good points about EMS.

    One of my gripes about Town Council and other candidates is that
    they do not pay their dues and go to Town Council Meetings.
    Jon goes to Meetings of the Town Council & C R C.
    Ben is on the C R C & goes to Meetings of the Town Council.
    Gavin has several T. C. Committee, Public Hearings, Work Shops,
    and other Meetings and is very active.

    Regardless of political agreements / disagreements, they and other
    pay their dues.

    Dom was at a recent Town Council meeting, despite not being very
    visible recently.

    Fredette & Calzone pop in to Town Council Meeting, as do Dave
    Mooney, Bonnie, & Margo. I have seen Rick Marcone.

    From the petition group, Sue Sulier is oftern there.

    PYE has Marcia Stewart and Mr. Mrs. Runkunis, among a couple others.

    Gotta give credit, where due.

  99. 100 jezebel282

    George,

    “Actually, Jeze, the Mayor recommended a 1 acre piece of land on or just
    off access road, next to Burns Construction for the Animal Shelter…Jim gets an attaboy. Gotta give credit, despite displeasing the blogosphere.”

    Sure doesn’t take much to please you, does it George?

    “Jon goes to Meetings of the Town Council & C R C.
    Ben is on the C R C & goes to Meetings of the Town Council.
    Gavin has several T. C. Committee, Public Hearings, Work Shops,
    and other Meetings and is very active.”

    Geeze, George. Jon wants to be mayor, Ben wants to be Town Attorney, and Gavin…well who knows?

    It’s not like they have nothing to gain. On the other hand, Pat Sperling, Sue Sullier, Karen Rodia, Sylvia Guberman do it because they are good citizens.

  100. 101 sudds

    “Geeze, George. Jon wants to be mayor”

    I can only dream of the day when our town gets such a Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent person as Mr. Best for our Mayor!!!

    Psst… Mr. Best, my resume is updated, where should I send it?

    PS… THANK YOU CRC2!!! 😀

  101. Jeze ~

    Thanks!

    George ~

    There is much to be gained by people like Dave, Bonnie and Margo. They’re Miron “groupies” right alongside Kent, Ashley and Heather.

    I certainly would love to be available to attend the Town Council meetings, CRC Meetings and any other meeting with issues that concern me, but unfortunately my two full-time jobs (the one that pays the bills, and the other that’s paid for with love and appreciation), keep me on my toes. The only think I want to gain is a better place to raise my daughter.

  102. 103 sudds

    How about a job that offers love and appreciation from almost 50,000 residents… plus pays a pretty good salary, free car, employment opps for freinds/family, and daily meetings with George???

    Truth be told it was Burns Construction that prompted this issue. They wanted to do a land swap and low and behold we “found” this 1.84 plot of land that we own and never thought of. Some credit should go to Burn’s construction so we should call the aminal control facility the “Burn’s animal shelter” lol.

    Hey Jez – who knows what regarding me? What do I have to gain – I’m term limited out so not like i’m bucking for re-election – besides – I wasn’t at the meeting last night other than to walk thru chambers after another meeting I attended ended down the hall. So let me get this straight – the 4 ladies are good citizens and those of us that volunteer to be elected are………………………………….

    LOL – ok

  105. 106 gforrester

    Hey Studs did you know we are building a new WPCA facility to handle more sewage – getting might deep in here LOL.

  106. Gavin ~

    You are one of the rare and vew TC members who actually shows that he cares about this Town. Let’s how that whoever fills your seat can follow suit.

  107. Oops, I meant “few,” not “vew.”

  108. Sudds ~

    Does it come with a nanny, houskeeper and cook? LOL

  109. 110 sudds

    Studs??? Freudian slip Mr. Forrester??? 😛

    Although… I personally perfer that name!!! 😆

  110. 111 jezebel282

    Mr. Forrester,

    “who knows what regarding me? ”

    Who knows if you will run for mayor? Are you announcing one way or the other here and now? Lord knows, the Democrats could use a viable candidate, you know. Now, don’t be a tease, Mr. Forrester.

    I have said many times the most thankless job (if you’re not in it for the ego points and cash) is Councilman. There are many, many citizens I have have not mentioned. Those four ladies came to mind immediately.

  111. 112 sudds

    Psst… Gavin… thanks to five idiots on the CRC2 the Mayor can still hire/fire at his/her leisure! You should start sucking-up with me… it could prove to be quite rewarding!!!

    Don’t worry though… if you choose to run for Mayor I can swing both ways for a good position!

    (politically speaking ONLY of course) 😳

  112. 113 sudds

    “Sudds ~ Does it come with a nanny, houskeeper and cook? LOL”

    When you factor in that Miron could have Ashley/Heathe…

    and that five @#$%^##$ #$#%(^$% on the CRC2 voted to allow future Mayors to get away with the same ##@$#%…

    I’m sure you can make it work somehow!!!

    PS… did I ever tell you that I make a wicked good eggplant rolitini??? 😉

  113. 114 jezebel282

    Pat,

    Sudds is right.

    The Council will probably not demand a job description for Mayoral “Aide” from Mayor Moron. If Ashley Heydu can go to class on our time and Heather Habelka can write his letters to the Post for him, I’m sure that when you are elected mayor you can have at least two “aides” that can cook and take a babysitting class.

  114. 115 1george1

    Gavin,
    As usual, you are correct, in that the Burns construction company prompted
    the knowledge that the town owns this property, since they sought a SWAP
    of looking for this piece of property owned by the Town, for a different piece
    of property, which Burns owns elsewhere?

    I was giving the mayor an attaboy, but the bloggers don’t realize it takes 10 to 100
    atta boys, to wipe out 1 awshits!

    I was giving the Mayor credit for solving a 10 year SHELTER “shell” game?
    I forgot to think about asking if BURNS was a REPUBLICAN or UNITED DEMOCRAT,
    rather than one of the PARTY FAITHFUL? As Gavin notes LOL or Sudds HAHAHAHA!

    Jeze,
    I expected you to slam the LOBS
    You did not even say thanks?

    I expected you to pat the friends on the back.

    It is always interesting to see who positions what and where on those and
    the others.

    Some of Gavin’s positions do not go where I would expect them to go,
    which is fine since every one has rights to their own political priorities.
    Gavin doesn’t put it on the blog that I give him props often. Very often.
    However, maybe since I also give props to Jim, ….? 😉

    Studds,

    I like the pulsating embarass face!

  115. 116 1george1

    PCS
    Whether some people are groupies or not, they participate.

    I don’t like Jason Sante and think he is FOS.
    However he participates and I gotta stap back and respect it.

    Kent has done some good things, as has Margo. They could keep
    busy with some other stuff?

    Everyone has their own priorities. When I left the Saturday Budget
    Workshop for lunch break which only had myself and Linda Goodwin
    as public/press, before the break, I passed a school with hundreds
    of school kids playing saturday sports at a School.

    One reason they and you and others don’t gp to Town Council and
    other meetings is that you have your priorities of your children and
    family above civics. It is a proper priority.

    However, there is NO FREE LUNCH.

    The BUDGET is a MESS, because the people who are professionals and
    who live off the Budget can put more time and effort into it than the
    other people. As sharp as Gavin is, I think he would be the first to admit
    straightening out Stratford is more than a full time job, nver mind a series
    of part time job.

    And as critical as I am about the local muffin(g)s, the State and FEDS
    really have done a job on Stratford (and elsewhere) because they can!

  116. 117 jezebel282

    George,

    “Jeze,

    May I refer you to:

    George’s Page
    https://stratfordcharter.wordpress.com/2008/05/15/georges-page/

    No one else has their own page. Does that qualify as a pat on the back?

  117. 118 sudds

    Jez,

    Can I propose a “what is BEST for Stratford” Page???

    Psst… Mr. Best… check out 5.2.4 of the new Charter!!! Wa-hooooo!!!!!

  118. 119 jezebel282

    Sudds,

    Sure! I’ll let you know where to send the certified check or money order.

  119. 120 1george1

    Jeze,

    Stratford does not use certified check or money order.
    Brown paper bags.

    My own page? It is enough to allow me to blog uncensored.
    Especially since I disagree with you almost as much as I agree with you,
    so I gotsta give ya da!

    I am waiting until after Thursday when Indiana Jones speaks at the
    Coast Guard graduating ceremonies, before I use my page in earnest?

  120. 121 jezebel282

    George,

    It’s your page. Use it as you will (less the profanity). And keep the porn to a minimum or Ben Proto might be your only reader. 😉

    It’s not like I ever blocked you.

    Oh…and you’re welcome.

  121. George ~

    The problem I see with these “groupies” is that they will stand behind Jim Miron even when he is wrong. If it’s blue but he says it’s pink, then it must be pink even though they can see the color with their own eyes. Margo – who on her blog stated she was searching for the truth, but when given to her, still argues it’s not. Bonnie Reynolds, a die-hard friend if Miron from school days and her husband, a die-hard Miron supporter by marriage. Laura Dobosz comes here critizing me and other bloggers, but offers nothing substantial that Miron has done since his election. I’m sure we’re all willing to listen – I know I am.

    For how long, on this and the SPT blog were supports asked for examples of the “great” things Jim Miron has done since he was elected. Not one ever came back with anything but nasty and negative comments towards others here.

    I was at a meeting for the Railroad not too long ago. I had a valid question – what happened to the grant money that we had for the railroad station improvements back in 2001? I wanted to know where it went. Bonnie Reynolds, who is not a commuter, but was there, SCREAMED at me that Miron has no control over that money and I made her “want to vomit.” Nice, eh? She had nothing positive to offer and probably should’ve said nothing. I still have no answer on where the grant money went back in 2001 and we’re still waiting for improvements. This morning, I almost tripped walking up the stairs on the metal kickplate bent up, people were dropping off right in the middle of the driveway, horns blasting, commuters frustrated. I guess we know that nothing – except for the new customer service employee to sit in the newly built customer service center (which, incidentally, was supposed to be for station security).

    This whole thing with Dick Miron is just the icing on the sh*tcake that the taxpayers are forced to eat. If Jim Miron wanted to be a stand-up kind of guy and show the taxpayers and citizens of Stratford that he can do the right thing and do what is in the best interests of the Town, he should’ve accepted the immediate resignation of his father not stood by another “interpretation.” That’s just like a lawyer – interepret it to your own (or your family member’s) benefit.

    No matter how hard the honest, taxpaying citizens of this Town fight for what’s right – it looks like it’s never going to matter – there’s always going to be another crooked politician with a law degree who knows how to “interpret” the law to his/her benefit, and we’re the ones who are going to continue to suffer.

  122. 123 gforrester

    Pat;

    When are these railroad meetings held. I was invited to one once by John Harkins but I had a Public Safety Meeting scheduled and could not attend. I don’t get any agenda’s or minutes but it’s my understanding that there is a regular schedule of these meetings.

    I picked my daughter up every Friday from NYC and dropped her back at the Station on Sunday’s and your right the place looks terrible. I saw our PW workers out on Friday (on OT no less) working on the North bound side during rrush hour pulling up bushes and the like and it’s obviously the Town built the info booth but the place needs other major work. There was a series of letters going back and forth between Haddad and the DOT last Oct/Nov and I’ll find my copy and see what we were given permission to do. I know the canopy was one of the things the Town was denied installing. It’s election time for State offices so now is the perfect time to hit our Reps. for some answers.

  123. Gavin ~

    The group that meets (once a month) consists of 6 commuters (myself included), Mike Vickirelli (the owner of The Shell Station), Roger Salls (from the Chamber of Commerce) and a few others. It’s not a Town committee, so there’s no public notice, etc. John Harkins and Dan DeBicella have been and continue to be extremely helpful in keeping the lines of communication open with C-DOT. We have heard that C-DOT is very committed to getting things moving in Stratford. I believe Metro-North officials have visited the station as well.

    The meeting you are referring to was the publicized meeting at the Library. I think those will be held a few times a year – maybe once a quarter – and are open to all commuters.

    Temporary canopies were going to be erected, but that has been scratched and the permanent canopies will be done in conjunction with other station improvements (which I think includes the platform extensions). I think there is an extremely serious issue with locations for interim parking while the garage is built. When the garage is built, it will only create an additional 500 spaces. It certainly won’t put a dent into the parking permit waiting list. The Town needs to be proactive and try and get ahead of the curve on this. Ridership is up 20% this year already and with higher gas prices, it will continue to rise.

    I question the need for a customer service center at the station. The employee who will be hired will work 37.5 hours a week – probably from 8:30 – 5 p.m. Non-peak commuter hours. I’m not sure what complex issues arise during that time to warrant such an employee. Most of the problems are during the morning peak and afternoon peak hours. 5 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. I doubt there’s a great deal of commuter traffic between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. It’s a ridiculous waste of taxpayer money.

    We need visible security and someone to keep traffic flowing into and out of the lots both in the morning and afternoon. It’s one big cluster**** in the lots on both sides – westbound in the a.m. and eastbound in the p.m. It’s nuts! Make a visit – for the morning peaks (on the coffee shop side); and then in the afternoon (on the museum side). You’ll see what I mean about the traffic. I’m surprised there hasn’t been a serious accident yet.

  124. 125 sudds

    Speaking of which… does anyone know who I should contact about getting a GIANT stop sign in the alley next to Stephen’s? Last night was about the 20th time I’v ealmost gotten clipped by someone flying out of there!!!

    A Miron/Buturla move or are they just to lazy to update the website?

  129. P.S. to Sudds ~

    A stop sign? Do they work? I remember (back in the day) when stop meant put your foot on the brake and make your car not move. It seems these days, red lights, stop signs and other visual driving instructions mean very little.

  130. Don’t think the IT department has gotten around to the update.

  131. 132 sudds

    Good point Madam Mayor… I’ll request a speed bump where the alley meets the curb!!!

    PCS,
    It is good to read someone who can logically articulate positions,
    reasoning, facts, and questions.

    People like Gavin, Jon, and Freedom (where’d he/she go?) are
    very good, too!

    Jeze can be very, very informative, while Sudds makes us laugh.

    Don’t know where Kane, Cyclops, and others went.

    I was told today that Dick Miron is not sick (pneumonia) as claimed
    last night (LOB ALERT).

    I was also told today that Burturla was called a SNAKE by Dick Miron.

    Separately, I spoke to Christian Miron last night and have a courteous
    rapport. He had not know why I dogged his dad, and asked him.
    I told him separately.
    He is not a bad kid.
    However, he supports people that are not popular.

    I agree with PCS about prople calling things blue, when they are red.

    I can not believe the gall of Jim Miron, saying he “drove by” the site
    and discovered the Town owned the property, when he publicly stated
    days prior that BURNS had requested a land swap?
    > Yo Jim, did one of the CAPITAL ONE RED PUSH PINS come flying out of
    the SKY as you were approaching the property with a SIGN stating
    “PROPERTY of STRATFORD?”
    > Yeah, you could have driven out there after BURNS made you aware it
    was owned by the Town (How else would you know?)
    > I think you could have earned praise, had you just told the simple truth
    since the animal shelter is a worthy issue?
    > Or, the smart thing to do … Trade with BURNS getting 5 figures extra
    for equal value, and put the animal shelter on the property BURNS wanted
    to TRADE?
    1. Still have Animal Shelter
    2. No lost Property Taxes
    3. Pick up a little cash for Petty funds
    4. Not make an enemy of BURNS
    5. BURNS could become a political donator and voter?
    6. You would get credit, instead of being and/or appearing to be a liar?

  133. George ~

    Let’s see how his arraignment tomorrow gets continued. It’ll probably get stalled until other charges are brought for the other 79 families. Then, there will be a backroom deal to consolidate them all into one so he can apply for accelerated rehabilitation and be record free (after a period of probation, of course).

    Where’s Freedom ~ think something like that can actually be done?

    “Let’s see how his arraignment tomorrow gets continued. It’ll probably get stalled until other charges are brought for the other 79 families.

    Depends on how many different departments have complaints and charges. If it ends up in one GA then I am sure they would move to consolidate all the counts. You should scream if they do, as that’s what he wants so he can AR out of this. However, if people wait until he ARs on the count that he has now, then he has used his get out of jail free card.

  139. Freedom ~

    It would seem more local and confined to one location – G.A. #2 in Bridgeport. So, this would mean that the possibility could exist that all counts could be consolidated and the use of his Accelerated Rehabilition could likely exist for the entire nut.

    The law firm that I suspect he might use (Gulash & Riccio) for this has an extremely good reputation in the criminal law world. Bob Gulash is an extremely saavy criminal attorney and made a name for himself back when he was a public defender representing the truck driver who rammed the toll booth on I-95 in Stratford some years ago. Following that, he went out on his own and is extremely accomplished.

    If it does happen and they’re going for a continuation while discussing consolidation of all counts, there will be screaming in the streets! You can count on that.

    Sudds,
    I am unsure of what your MBA actually stands for?

    When it comes to college degrees, I think the initials / definitions are:
    B. S. = (evident)
    M. S. = More of the same
    P. H. D. = Piled Higher and Deeper

    So what does M. B. A. stand for?

    PCS,
    Appropriate letter to the Editor and question.

    Alert,
    I listened to some of the Monday night WICC T-Berry show.
    I only heard 15 minutes.
    I agreed with a Trumbull callin that it lack respect for the
    people who were stiffed out of Tombstones.
    T-Berry blew him off.
    I was embarassed for Fredette & the Bpt. Officer / wife of Bpt.
    Police captain, as one could hear her pain.

    Next night, I turned on the radio on the way to the Dem vote.
    Who is being interviewed, but JAMES AMman of Milford.

    Generally came across well and capable. (I don’t like him…)

    Caught my attention:

    1) Area 51 is a H O M E R U N.

    Isn’t this a guy who has helped steer things away from Bridgeport/Stratford
    and towards Milford / Shelton. (All Berchem clients)

    2) When speaking about Public Service / giving back to the Community, he
    mentioned what you do “TO” your Town, as opposed to “FOR” your Town.

    Freudian slip?

    It was worth going to the Dem vote, to see who was there and hear who was
    not there.
    Also to see who nominated / seconded whom, and how the votes were cast.
    I try to understand motivations and real positions.

    I gave the Town Council / Gavin certain questions and feed back.

    They gave Burtula a virtual free ride on questions, and did not ask
    certain major questions of Miron / Finance.

    Huge disappointment. But it was worth passing things along to see what
    they ask and do NOT ask!

    I have learned
    1. NO ONE has a LIST of UNFUNDED MANDATES.
    2. Just the Town side, might exceed $ 5,000,000 per yer. (over 1 Mil)
    3. Just the Education side, might exceed $ 5,000,000 per yer. (over 1 Mil)
    4. The ECS short so far is $ 54,000,000 plus interest on borrowing to cover
    shortages/needs. If the $ 160,000,000 + Town Debt was reduce by $ 60 m,
    it might save 1 – 2 Mils in Interest.

    Yet, Finance and C. A. O. do not know.
    Then how could the Mayor or Town Attorney know and bill for UNFUNDED
    MANDATES and work the Town does that the State & Feds do NOT do, like
    RailRoad station, Cutting Grass next to Federal & State Roads, snow shovel
    side walks, side walk repairs, and more.

    Neither Gavin nor the Town Council, nor Finance/C.A.O. seems to care?

    At least NO ONE ADDRESSED in when the entire Town Council had a chance
    to discuss the possibilities with Burturla, Miron, McCauley, & Norko.
    All of the KEY elected / appointed “official decision makers were right there.

    Hey, it is their decision and they will get the credit and the blame.
    I gained nothing giving them the chance to help the Town.

    Thanks. I was pleased with it, if I do say so myself….LOL

  143. 144 1george1

    Yo PCS,
    Saturday your Mayor stated the State DOT was the most unresponsive
    agency, since the Town has had to work on the Rail Road Station…
    Side walk snow along State property & roads
    Side walk repair along State roads.
    Grass cutting along State / Fed roads.

    Yo viewers, no one comments on cutting 1/3rd of your Town Taxes.

    1. Pension off Budget = 3.2 Mils
    2. Annual unfunded Mandates paid = 2 + Mils
    3. ECS $ 54 m + interest repaid / covered = 1 1/2 Mils
    4. AVCO + econ development = 1 1/2 Mils
    5. Town + Ed Grants for Revenue = 1/2 to 1 1/2 Mils
    6. Budget / Departmental organization / repriority = 2 to 3 Mils

    I do NOT favor Volunteer Fire Dept.
    I favor good pay, benefits, and pensions.
    But not absurd unsustainable ripoffs, which will lead to ah…
    problems.

    —-

    Sudds mentioned attorneys.

    Burturla claimed during the work shop.
    $ 675 monthly stipend for covering meetings
    $ 150 charged per hour to any Attorney work, regardless of firm:
    Brian Leclerk = BMD
    Warren Holcomb = BMD
    Kent Miller = BMD
    Tom Cotter = former State / former BMD
    John Florek > C. R. C. Steering
    Kevin Kelly = Has Esq, Dougiello former BMD

    Lesser per hour rate for paralegal

    No charge for secretary.

    Of course I have been asking for this information and DOCUMENTED
    PROOF since NOV…. sooooo ….

  144. 145 jezebel282

    I’m shocked! Shocked, I tell you!

    (And that Sperling lady was correct again about Miron’s attorney)

    You read it in the Post:

    Miron headstone court case continued
    DANIEL TEPFER
    Article Last Updated: 05/22/2008 03:59:49 PM EDT

    BRIDGEPORT — Richard Miron, Stratford’s Democratic registrar of voters, was granted a continuance this morning in his larceny case in which he is accused failing to deliver the headstone for the grave of a Bridgeport police officer’s late husband.

    Miron, 72, the owner of the defunct Lakeview Monument Co., is also accused of ripping off dozens of people who purchased headstones for the graves of loved ones, but which were never delivered.

    Miron, the father of Stratford Mayor James R. Miron, announced that he will not seek re-election as registrar this November after he was arrested last week.

    So far, Miron has been formally charged with one count of larceny for allegedly taking more than $2,000 from Officer Verna Kearney, who had paid him to provide a headstone for the Lakeview Cemetery grave of her late husband, Nelson.

    This morning, Superior Court Judge Maureen Keegan granted Miron a continuance of his case to June 2 at the request of Miron’s lawyer, Eugene Riccio.

    Miron was not present in court today. Riccio declined comment on the case.

  145. Jeze ~

    His case is being set up I tell you. If all the counts aren’t in by June, he may plead NG until they are and then move to consolidate.

    There’s going to be screaming in the streets and picketers at the courthouse when he tries to take AR for 80 counts of larceny all bundled up into one nice package.

    I certainly hope that these wronged families don’t let that happen!

  146. 147 jezebel282

    Pat,

    I’m guessing Riccio demanded his retainer in advance?

  147. Jeze ~

    I’ll have to consult my crystal ball on that one (LOL). Well, maybe a barter – legal services for a headstone?

  148. 149 freedomofspeach

    I am going to think that if they tried that that the victims should ask to sever the cases, as its clearly being used to utilize the get out of jail free card. Each charge/count will be Larceny 2nd or 3rd, and I would try to get crimes against those over 65 (?) to add additional charges. Around 10 or more. Each charge is separate and distinct from the other, and the victims are not related. They would not consolidate it for a drug dealer so he could AR out, they should not do it for this scum.

    I would then look at the federal criminal charges that I would push. I am sure his books are in order.

    I am also sure there are a lot of political favors flying around, and just so they know they are put on notice that the taxpayers as well as others on this blog will do our best to expose those who will conspire to usurp justice. If they want to see CNN news vans on their lawns and following them to work, then let this politically connected guy get off after robbing from the dead.

    Also, a thought, he cannot Bankrupt out on any criminal court order restitution and fines, or it violates his AR conditions, as such he will loose that option, and have to face time. So if he has to return $100,000 before the end of his AR and he does not, he goes to jail. At least that’s how the system is supposed to work.

  149. 150 mikereynolds

    Just because a defendant applies for AR doesn’t mean the judge automatically grants AR.

    If there are indeed mulitple counts of larceny; 10, 20, 30, etc, I think a judge would have a hard time granting AR. Plus the state’s attorney can object to the AR application and try to convince the judge to not grant it.

    Due to the political connections of the defendant its probably a longshot that AR would be denied but that’s really the only shot at justice.

    Even if AR is granted and restitution is a condition of probation the victims have a very small chance at actually getting their money back. Dick Miron is 72, in questionable health, and unemployed. Where is the money going to come from to pay the victims?

    Perhaps a no show job at City Hall?

  150. Mike ~

    I agree. It’s a hard sell for AR if the counts are consolidated, but, based on his political background, etc., whose to say that there’s not a favor out there being called in.

    While this is all hypothetical at the moment, if this scenario does evolve, it will be up to the families to make enough noise and draw enough BIG media attention to make it impossible to allow.

    Where’s the money for restitution to the victims going to come from? Well, how about his resignation wasn’t accepted as an immediate resignation (by his son, the mayor) in order to make sure the 401(a) pot is big enough to cover most, if not all, of the restitution debt. If he were allowed to continue, he wouldn’t have a paycheck.

  151. 152 1george1

    I was wondering, as long as we are arresting people, …..

    Maybe I should create a poll to ask if people thought crime would go up
    or down, if all the judges, politically elected, and politically appointed
    at each level of government, were put in jail?

    And all of the people in jail were put in Wyoming?

    I know, maybe this should go on george’s blog, but can anyone
    imagine if all of Berchem’s firm was in jail?

    Maybe there would have never been dick miron abuses?

  152. 153 jezebel282

    George,

    Yes…your poll should go on your page.

    As for the Charter, I am going to say again: This is our best chance for efficient, effective and transparent (See? I listen, George) government. It would be a shame to let this opportunity slip through our fingers.

  153. 154 1george1

    Jeze,

    In both cases, the points are rhettorical, plain, clean, and evident.

    Wooops, something just slipped….

  154. 155 1george1

    I did a double check on the 1099s from the Town.

    They have the name of Berchem, Moses, and not the name of Burturla on them.
    As such, it can offset my double billing question.

    Hmmmm?

    In 2006/2007, I was told by the Board of Ed, that they did not send 1099s to corporations and the Board of Ed could only provide Print Outs of what was
    paid to BMD? The claim was BMD was a Corporation and 1099 is for individuals.
    > I found it highly irregular that no formal total on a Government Tax form
    was sent to BMD? CT. Revenue Services; or IRS?

    Yo Freedom?
    Jeze?
    PCS?
    Sudds > Mr. MBA?

  155. 156 freedomofspeach

    “Board of Ed could only provide Print Outs of what was
    paid to BMD? The claim was BMD was a Corporation and 1099 is for individuals.
    > I found it highly irregular that no formal total on a Government Tax form
    was sent to BMD? CT. Revenue Services; or IRS?”

    She is correct, if BM&D is a PC or Inc., then they do not have to send out a 1099, however, if it is an LLC, LLP, or partnership, they do. According to their website, they are a Professional Corporation, and thus do not get 1099s. Individuals will get them if they are paid direct.

  156. 157 1george1

    Then how does the IRS or CT. REV SERVICES get notified how much was paid
    to Berchem or other Corporations, by the Board of Ed?

    Isn’t there some Government FORM (replace 1099) for payment to Corporations?

    I can not believe the IRS & CRS use the HONOR system for Corporations?
    If there is a FORM, I would like to FOI for that info.

    At this point, Berchem has taken at least $ 5 m from Stratford from the Town &
    Board of Ed. If there was the underpayment I believe there is, it would be about
    $ 7 m.

    I believe Berchem & the State have steered Business to Milford and Shelton at
    the expense of Stratford and Bridgeport, so they could force changes on a time
    table, where they could have assets lined up like
    AVCO
    SHAKESPEARE
    AIRPORT
    LBW
    STEEL POINT
    BRIDGEPORT’S EAST SIDE from the Harbor to GE Boston Ave

    As James Amman said on WICC: “Area 51 is a Home Run.”

    Especially if his allies loaded the bases and bribed the pitcher to grove
    the pitch? But the timing would be at the time of his Governor election?

    BMD is a BIG DONATOR to the PARTY (S).
    However, based on what happened to ROWLAND & GANIM, I wonder IF
    the party will allow non Hartford contenders?
    Or maybe BMD was part of the ahhhh …. entrapment?

    Lower level people dragged / tempted the upper people.
    Who caused them to do so?

    Hmmmmm….

  157. 158 freedomofspeach

    “Then how does the IRS or CT. REV SERVICES get notified how much was paid
    to Berchem or other Corporations, by the Board of Ed?”

    There is no form that I know of for PC or Inc’s.

    You can ask an accountant, who might have some idea, however if everyone tht paid a corp had to send a form, that would mean every time you paid a bill over a set amount you would have to 1099 them, like the UI, Water, Gm for car payments, ect.

  158. 159 jezebel282

    Apparently and as usual, lawyers are special case in Connecticut:

    5. LEGAL FEES:
    Payments to attorneys. Attorneys’ fees of $600 or more paid in the course of your trade or business are and continue to be reportable in box 7 of Form 1099-MISC. However, if you make a payment in the course of your trade or business to an attorney in connection with legal services and the attorney’s fee cannot be determined, the total amount paid to the attorney (gross proceeds) must be reported in Box 14.
    These rules apply (a) whether or not the legal services are provided to the payer and (b) whether or not the attorney is the exclusive payee (e.g., the attorney’s and claimant’s names on one check). However, these rules do not apply to profits distributed by a partnership to its partners that are reportable on Schedule K-1 (Form 1065), Partner’s Share of Income, Credits, Deductions, etc., or to wages paid to attorneys that are reportable on Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. The term “attorney” includes a law firm or other provider of legal services.
    Payments to corporations for legal services. The exemption from reporting payments made to corporations no longer applies to payments for legal services. Therefore, you must report attorneys’ fees (in box 7) or gross proceeds (in box 14) as described above to corporations that provide legal services.
    TINs. To report payments to attorneys on Form 1099-MISC, the payer must obtain the attorney’s taxpayer identification number (TIN). Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification, may be used to obtain the attorney’s TIN. An attorney is required to promptly supply its TIN whether it is a corporation or other entity. If the attorney fails to provide its TIN, the attorney may be subject to a penalty under section 6723, and the reportable payments are subject to backup withholding.

    Jeze,
    I am impressed!

  160. 161 freedomofspeach

    Well I guess the $500,000 for the Mayors office does not buy good management. Gavin, whens the investigation into the mismanagement at Public Works going to start? When is the TC is bringing the department head in to discuss the violations of state law? Is this truly a violation of law?? When is his direct supervisor going to put on leave, he’s not a department head? Lets find out why he was hired at all, bring in HR.

    Time for the TC to ask the hard questions. Where is the leadership? It’s not like you guys are getting anywhere with the B & L fiasco. What’s going to happen when you rely on the B & L report and the ceiling collapses and kills someone? OR is this too much for the TC to deal with as there is a multi-million dollar lawsuit coming, and this, as other potential illegal acts of the town employees, vendors, and contractors are not investigated?

    I said it before; this has a story of its own. The Mayor and TC are too busy screwing around to manage the town, and now a death has occurred by a town employee, just like the false arrests they are dealing with in Federal Court, another mismanaged department. Who is the head of PW involved politically with?

    The first thing that anyone competent does when they hire someone is to make sure they are eligible to do the job they are being paid for. Gee, sounds like another person who should not have been hired, was hired. Sound familiar?

    Hey TC wake up!!! Time to Audit all the departments for compliance with laws or don’t fund them. Its pretty simple, They submit to your questioning, or they don’t get funded and drop this bomb back on Mirons lap.

    Oh and at a minimum he should be charged with misconduct with a motor vehicle

    You read it in the POST
    Charges filed in Stratford teen’s death
    STAFF REPORTS
    Article Last Updated: 05/28/2008 12:53:06 AM EDT

    STRATFORD — The driver of a town public works truck that struck and killed a 13-year-old last month today was charged with three traffic violations.
    Carlos Prada Jr. died from injuries when he was hit by a truck driven by five-year town employee Robert Maloy as he was crossing East Main Street from his home to a school bus stop.

    Maloy, who was placed on paid administrative leave since the April 29 fatal accident, was charged with failure to grant the right-of-way to a pedestrian; failure to obey a traffic-control symbol/pedestrian, and operating a motor vehicle without a proper license endorsements. The latter charge refers to Maloy’s failure to hold a license required to drive the type of truck he was driving with air brakes.

    The charges are traffic infractions and not criminal violations, according to an announcement by Police Chief John Buturla and Mayor James Miron.
    The charges were filed based on the police investigation of the accident, and have been reviewed by the State’s Attorney’s office.

    However, Donald Papcsy, a lawyer representing the Prada family at today’s press conference, later questioned whether Maloy should not have to face a criminal charge in connection with the case.

    Maloy, 42, of Orange, will remain on paid administrative leave while officials conduct an internal review on his continued employment with the town, Miron said.

    Prada was an eighth-grade student at Flood Middle School. A tree planting in the boy’s memory is planned at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow at the school.

  161. 162 jezebel282

    Freedom,

    In this Town, in order to be a summer playground counselor you have to be certified in CPR and first aid. In order to be a lifeguard at the Short Beach you have to be certified by the Red Cross. To drive a heavy truck…not so much.

    Now, I cannot imagine how badly Robert Maloy must feel or how he will come to terms with this accident. Even more so the Prada family. Their loss is indescribable.

    On the other hand, I highly doubt Mr. Maloy decided to take the truck out on his own for a joyride. Somebody tasked him with the operation of the vehicle. Which begs the question; how many other Town employees are not trained sufficiently?

  162. Freedom ~

    Rob Maloy was employed for 5 years – his direct supervisor no longer with the Town, and I doubt that the new department head looked at every employees records to make sure everything was in order. He would make the assumption that the people he supervises are qualified to do their jobs. He had no reason to assume anything else. I would think the Town would have been responsible for making sure he had the proper licenses and, if not, provided the necessary training to ensure everything was in order. All applications go through HR, right – who dropped the ball on training? The Town should accept some responsiblity for the fact that he was tasked with doing a job he was not licensed to do.

    One of the things I’ve found out with this accident is that it may not have happened as the Connecticut Post led readers to believe. In reading the story, it sounded like the young boy was hit with the front of the truck; what I have since heard was that it was the rear or the truck. The young boy was called back – apparently by his mother – to take an umbrella (remember, it was a very rainy morning). The driver saw him on the sidewalk and proceeded into the turn, the young boy turned and ran out. The driver never saw the boy leave the sidewalk. The boy was run over by the rear of the truck – not the front. I’m sure if he were hit by the front there would’ve been visible external injuries; I heard there were none, everything was internal. Did he slip and fall? We’ll never know. It was the worst kind of accident that could ever possibly happen, but an accident nevertheless – both in the wrong place at the wrong time. If there was a signal problem – and the CDOT was aware of it and hadn’t gotten around to fixing it – they’re also a responsible party in all of this. It was a state road.

    The lives of the Prada and Maloy family were changed that day – none will ever be the same. I have a young child – my only one. I can’t even begin to think what my life would be without her and I don’t want to. Thinking of how much suffering the Prada family is enduring right now breaks my heart and I pray that they find peace.

  163. 164 1george1

    A source well know in town, pointed out to me that the Driver was given
    not one, but three tickets.

    The liability on each one will be extremely high.

    The source feels the Town Attorney’s office will defend the case in court,
    to run up the billing, knowing the outcome since 3 tickets were issued by
    the Town Police, to a Town Employee.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

    Both the source and I feel for the boy’s family and the driver.

    However, how often do vultures avoid opportunity to dine?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  164. George ~

    Curiously, there’s a line item in the budget -Line item #01401 6061 for “Education.” The description says “Employee on the job training for all divisions of Public Works.” If the driver didn’t have the proper license, when hired, why didn’t the Town provide the “on the job training” that we’ve been paying for each and every year?

    So…where did THAT money end up?

  165. 166 1george1

    PCS,

    1. No clue
    2. 1st I heard of that specific line
    3. I am hard of hearing. I miss things, especially with intentional poor
    sound in the Town Council Chamber
    4. I tended to concentrate on the bigger ticket items.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Re-reading your question, it appears to be about the driver whose
    truck killed the child?

    If that is the case, then there could be reclessness rather than negligence
    on the part of the Supervisor / Department Head / Mayor.
    Freedom and you, both might have opinions abot potential criminal charges.
    However, I suspect the lawyer of the child and the driver can both use your
    question for
    A) Increased and expedited settlement of financial claims
    B) Protecting the Driver from imprisonment, fines, or loss of job.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    So…where did THAT money end up?

    Recent points of contention is that the Mayor can move INTRA DEPARTMENT
    MONEY where ever they decide appropriate, to cover added costs, priorities,
    surprizes, and draw from savings for various reasons.

    The Town Council Controls overall Town, Education, and Department Budgets
    and Bonding, etc.

    Again, if there was reless action, beyond negligent action, there “may” be a
    CRIMINAL VENUE, if a non-political (or political) entity felt it passed the reason
    -able person criteria. (entirely subjective discretion)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    PCS,

    Just my opinion.
    The only bar I pass gets people drunk with alcohol….
    now drunk with power! 🙂

  166. George ~

    It’s a small item, but it does beg the question – if money is earmarked for “on the job training” and this man was never offered or given the property training, then the Town is at fault as well.

  167. 168 sudds

    I don’t know… but it CLEARLY it has NOT been used on training since the accident!

    TRUE STORY…

    I was sitting at the light in front of Sunoco heading on Main Street this morning.

    AFTER my light turned green, a town Public Works truck (towing a trailer/chipper/something-or-other) came whipping up Longbrook (?) Avenue, taking a left onto Main Street!

    If I had gone on the green (instead of noticing them coming and waiting)… I DEFINITELY would NOT be having a good day right now!!

    Seriously… when it’s 8am, and you’re on the clock for another 6+ hours… what’s the @#$%ing rush???

  172. 173 jezebel282

    Sudds,

    You think so? Remember what Mayor Moron said about his sister? “Innocent until proven guilty”?

    TECHNICALLY, if this is the case, Richard Miron is innocent and can run for anything he wants until 2012.

  173. 174 sudds

    Uggh… PLEASE do not write things that make me have to agree with the mayor!

    Secondly… true, but do you really think that the Kool-Aid Drinkers… err, I mean Democrats will shoot themselves in the foot for Dick Miron? If it was something like (oh I don’t know, let’s say hypothetically speaking) embezzelling money from an restaurant far enough awy that no one cares, then I might side with you… but stealing from dead cops in Bridgeport… that’s just a little too sever/close to home!!!

  174. 175 jezebel282

    Sudds,

    “Secondly… true, but do you really think that the Kool-Aid Drinkers… err, I mean Democrats will shoot themselves in the foot for Dick Miron?”

    I hate to say it like this, but Dick Miron knows where all the skeletons are buried.

    So, yes.

  175. 176 jezebel282

    Apparently Richard Miron’s trial is heading from Golden Hill to Main Street.

    The 2012 date entered into the docket database was a “filler” until a real date and courtroom are set.

    Or so I’m told. Stay tuned.

  176. 177 1george1

    Now 1:00 pm. I just got similar info that an arbitrary court date HAS to be used
    for the computer to accept and process court docketing info.

    I was stunned with initial info, as were others. My apologies.

    Unfortunately Jeze, some of those Skeletons which Dick Miron may know where
    they are buried may belong (figuretively) to my family and friends.
    I can NOT prove deaths were NOT natural, without expertise….
    Expertise is NOT available without police wanting to open a case….
    If the politically appointed police are protecting political patrons, who arrange
    for extremely discreet deaths, which APPEAR natural…

    ~~~

    Jeze,
    I believe MLK Jr was credited with stating “JUSTICE DELAYED, is JUSTICE DENIED.”
    I think it was in his letter from Jail.
    He may have been quoting ST. THOMAS ACQUINAS, a DOCTOR of the CHURCH,
    who is someone who TREATS (and cures) PAGAN TEACHING, according to…

    ~~~

    Sudds,

    I was passing the center of Main street, south of I – 95 & RR.
    It was 6:00 pm. Heavy Traffic.
    4 to 5 Town PW were planting ANNUALS (Flowers which die yearly)
    This is 6:00 pm to plant FLOWERS.
    By contract, PW starts @ 7:00 am,
    Since this was JUNE 2, maybe OT for PW has to be used up.

    More OT used in 2007/2008, The better they can make it appear for 2008/2009?

    It really does work that way…

    ~~~

    Hey PCS, maybe that is where the INTRA DEPARTMENT money goes for
    VEHICULAR TRAINING?

  178. 179 sudds

    Hi hate to tell you George, but I left Sterling House at 7:00 last night… and they were STILL planting*!

    * planting… this assumes that you interpret standing around staring at woman from the train walking to their car as working!

    Hi hate to tell you George, but when I left Sterling House at 7:00 last night… and they were STILL planting*!

  180. I hate being overly critical of the PW boys. I’ve known quite a few for many years. I’ve ridden with them (back in my HOG days) and hit many a watering hole with them too.

    Unfortunately, all that nostalgia aside, I do think that some of this work is better done during the regular day hours. I saw them too and wondered why it was being done then. I almost thought, as I pulled out of the train station, that Sudds was finally getting a stop sign at the end of the Stephen’s alley. Then, I saw the flats of petunias and pile of dirt. Pretty, yes; necessary overtime, no.

    I guess it’s all to get ready for Saturday (Stratford Day). I wish I had an “Anyone But Miron” pin I could wear…..LOL

  181. 182 sudds

    Sooo… was that you that the PW boys were “cat calling” at???

    PS… thanks for the reminder… Mr. Salik never returned my call!!!

  182. 183 sudds

    Hey… do you think that if I volunteer to throw in some petunias next year that they’ll let me throw up on of those “this site maintained by ROCKI” like other town offer???

  183. No, wasn’t me…LOL, I go by way earlier than that. I think it was just after 5.

    As I was leaving, there were two PW trucks in the train station parking lot. Not sure what they were doing, but the westbound stairs are finally blocked off and looks like maybe those will be fixed before one of these days. They made a little driveway behind the building that used to be known as the guard shack – probably for the newly created position of “customer service representative” to park from 8:30 – 5:00 every day.

    I’m still waiting for some traffic control in the parking lot – westbound side for the morning peak and eastbound for the afternoon peak. Pulling into and out of the station gives me “commuter rage.”

  184. 185 1george1

    Sudds,
    The PW boys were watching a very fit, long legged, woman with long blond hair,
    walking from the train station, when I was stuck in traffic at 6:00 pm.

    Rare time that studip traffic delays don’t seem to bother guy drivers.

    Of course, girl watching (& reverse for ladies) is a healthy perk of warmer weather.

    Sorry I didn’t get into substantive issues. 🙂

  185. 186 sudds

    Ahh spring… the flowers are growing, the birds are chirping, and the skirts are getting shorter… isn’t it a wonder time of the year??? 😀

    PS… update… drove by at 5:50 last night and several PW workers were still out planting flowers! Seriously… who should I contact about doing this myself… all I ask l for is one of those “this site maintained by ROCKI” signs!!!

    Surprise! Miron pleads not guilty! Doesn’t look like a plea was even offered.

    Miron pleads not guilty to headstone fraud
    DANIEL TEPFER
    Article Last Updated: 06/17/2008 04:08:19 PM EDT

    BRIDGEPORT — Richard Miron, Stratford’s Democratic registrar of voters, pleaded not guilty this morning to defrauding a city police officer by failing to deliver the headstone that she bought for the grave of her late husband.

    Miron, 72, the father of Stratford Mayor James R. Miron, stood before Superior Court Judge George Thim and pleaded not guilty to the single count of third-degree larceny against him. He asked to be tried before a jury.

    At the request of Miron’s lawyer, John Gulash Jr., the judge continued the case to July 23.

    Neither Gulash nor Miron had any comment as they left the Main Street courthouse.

    Miron, the owner of the defunct Lakeview Monument Co. here, is accused of ripping off dozens of people who purchased headstones from his business, but that he failed to deliver.

    Miron so far has been charged only with one count of larceny for allegedly taking more than $2,000 from Officer Verna Kearney, but failing to deliver a headstone for the Lakeview Cemetery grave of her late husband, Officer Nelson Kearney Jr.

    However, city police said they have been talking to other people who contend that Miron ripped off thousands of dollars from them without provided the promised grave markers. More charges are expected to be filed against Miron based on those claims, police indicate.

    Verna Kearney claims there are as many as 89 similar cases of fraud perpetrated by Miron.

  187. 188 sudds

    I guess that with the whole “innocent until proven guilty” thing that our stupid-a$$ Founding Fathers thought up… we’re stuck with him for now then, huh?

    So much for that Council proclamation-thingy against him!!!

  188. 189 mikereynolds

    Entering a plea at this point is a formality. I can’t remember a time when a defendant didn’t plead not guilty after his/her arraignment. Now the case goes into pre-trial and motions get filed back and forth.

    If more charges are filed this is going to take awhile.

    Don’t expect swift justice on this one.

  189. 190 gforrester

    Sudds 2 council members voted against tabling the resolution – myself and the chairman.

  190. 191 jezebel282

    Mr. Forrester,

    See? Guts and courage. Nice job.

  191. 192 1george1

    I am reminded of how many times former Councilor Feehan would pass on
    a vote, and then cast a vote AFTER the matter was decided.

    Such is the case for the Chairman on tabling the Dick Registrar resolution.

    Gavin is the 3rd Vote, and when voting in order as he usually does, does
    have an idea about the outcome of a vote, but without certainty.

    Based on my observations of Gavin, who is very hard to figure, but has a
    healthy ego and sense of self respect, I would tend to think his motives
    were honorable. Tabling the motion would be easy way out due to the
    potential for LIE ABILITY

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Someone has to step up to provide the Headstones!

    Maybe a GRANT? 😉

    Maybe an anonymous check from Berchem and other beneficiaries of
    Dick’s politics? 8)

    It is legal to take out a Life Insurance policy and become the beneficiary,
    which is how they would get their money back.
    I knew KENT had sold TERM INSURANCE.

    Some might consider a thought to have Life Insurance as GHOULISH!
    At least it makes thing right of innocents and not the FOOLISH.

    We can take comfort that if a certain person gets sick, his health care
    covers his entire cost, and the Town picks up 100 % of the deductable.

    And he can still collect his PENSION.

    Oh wait, the State Legislature was debating taking away Pension and
    related rights for people convicted of wrong doing under certain
    circumstances.

    Anyone know if it passed or if it is pending or if it applies to a criminal
    conviction / felony, if it is not directly related to Government activity?

    Richard Miron gets yet another postponement. This time until 17 November, 2008. Aren’t we lucky that he will STILL be the Democratic Registrar of Voters on November 4th?

    (Does anyone think that Rick Marcone will resign and Richard Miron will be Registrar again?)

    If it takes the court 8 months to hear a 3rd degree larceny case, how long would it take for 17 cases to make it through small claims?

    Mossman’s friends – (Burturla & Kelly) among state prosecutors kept
    continuing my disorderly conduct for 22 months.
    (effectively probation, while I was spied on @ Mr. P’s – The original owner
    of the D. A. R. E. Car, a known snitch, tried to hook me up with hookers,
    drugs, scams and even weirder stuff. The local police know and I gained
    their respect by fighting Mossman by the book.)

    I had 4 court appearances and 72 days just to get the police report.

    Disagreement was Dec 14, 1998.
    I was lied to by one of John Williams lawyers to agree to a NOLLE on OCT 31, 2000.
    I would not accept A. R.
    I would not plead guilty.
    I wanted a jury trial or for them to drop charges.
    If I knew then what I know now, I could have demanded FREE DOCUMENTATION.

    Apologize in advance to FOS
    Not all LAWYERS are SCUM – but looking at the crews who have been on
    Clown Council – REVISIONist Committees – Berchump’s firm –
    mIRON CURTAIN hires – Town Committees – State Prosecutors
    – U. S. Attorneys – Fed / State Judges – Williams firm – ACLU
    – Trial Attorneys – Atty Gen – States Dept Council.

    The only attorneys, I have seen do anything to benefit people are the
    Nader people.

    Last week Mike Reynolds gave me a compliment.
    Mike might faint when I agree with the theme of his 2 posts about
    “Dead beat Dick!”

    As Martin Luther King Jr. quoted ST. Augustine:
    “Justice delayed, is Justice denied!”

  201. 202 1george1

    I forgot about all of the scummy lawyers from my days with the USPS.
    24 USPS managers were either related to Lawyers or EEOC purview matched.

    Then there are the scummy other lawyers
    USPS = MANAGEMENT
    NALC = UNION
    NLRB = Oversees Labor / Management legal process
    EEOC =
    Congressional / Senate Staffs Lawyers were cc.
    White House Gen Council was cc.
    CIA & DOD correspondence had cc.

    My appeals were over 40 redundant.

    It’s possible. But Miron usually preferred cash from people he was about to rob.

    Update:

    Richard Miron is scheduled for his 10th court appearance tomorrow August 4th 2009.

    He was at Mill River CC on July 30th playing golf with Mayor Moron, McCarthy (PW) and Buturla. Of course, Thursday is a work day, so they took Town vehicles and were being paid.

    Thank goodness they forced the pro to give them the round for free or we would have paid for that too. We only had to pay for their lunch at the turn.

    I hope the judge wasn’t playing too, otherwise Miron’s request for a delay due to “health” reasons would look pretty lame.

  210. 211 mikereynolds

    July 30th was also the day of the Harkins Golf Fundraiser at Mill River.

    Funny how Miron and Buturla were playing at the same time as John Harkins and his supports.

    I understand the Mayor and Chief were paying particular interest to who was supporting Mr. Harkins.

  211. 212 jezebel282

    Mike,

    You can be sure Miron and Buturla were taking names. Probably checking license plates too.

  212. 213 1george1

    The ability of the political parties to interfer with people
    working and making a living extends beyond the public sector.

    When I was fired by the USPS – waiting for unemployment to start,
    a friend gave me a week’s work … Yes I declared the work.

    Within 2 years ALL of his contracts dried up and he had to move out
    of state losing well over $ 2 million in equity.

    Feds / State / Local police and political offices have all kinds of the
    private information on everyone.
    Certain people make a phone call to clients of clients of clients.
    All of a sudden sales are down 20 %. That can continue.

    Innocent people get hurt due to political reprisal antithetical to
    powers intended within the Constitution.

    However bullies are cowards who get really brave when they can
    act from from view and get other people to do what they want done!

    THAT’S IT! As of right now (since George just PROVED that he is insane) I’m not even going to vote in November!!!

  214. 215 jezebel282

    Sudds,

    Don’t give up hope.

    Somebody may offer you a no-show job yet. Maybe if you shaved your legs?

  215. 216 sudds

    “Maybe if you shaved your legs?”

    Who said that I don’t already???

  216. 217 jezebel282

    Sudds,

    What can I say?

    Maybe offer to lose at golf. But if you score in the 40’s at Short Beach, that may not be much of an offer.

    Cash always works. This is Stratford, you know.

  217. 218 sudds

    WOW… people get in the 40’s at Short Beach??? And I thought I was getting better when I shot that 63!!!

  218. 219 1george1

    Sudds,
    Even paranoid people have real enemies.

    Even the insane can be correct about certain things.
    > The Wall Street Traders and Pundits have contempt
    for the mass of peoples’ “conventional wisdom.”

    If any of you had been maliciously attacked, including
    innocent family and friends, how many of you would
    have rolled over and let them continue at their whim?
    How many would have tried to protect:
    yourself?
    your family?
    your friends?
    your coworkers?
    your support?
    your community?

    For my Jewish friends, it is time to remind Sudds and others
    about the Nazi Germany scenario, shown by Protestant minster
    Martin Niemoeller: (spelling?)

  219. 220 jezebel282

    Sudds,

    “And I thought I was getting better when I shot that 63!!!”

    Maybe if you took some monofilament, tied it to the end of your club with a small safety pin at the end and left it in one of the water hazards. Your experience may be more rewarding.

  220. 221 1george1

    Sudds,

    “And I thought I was getting better when I shot that 63!!!”

    What did you shoot on the 2nd and other holes?

    Or did you shoot some Senior Citizen?

  221. 222 jezebel282

    George,

    (Psst…on a par 3, 63 is the maximum.)

  222. 223 1george1

    Does that mean?

    Once you get to six, the next shot is a gimme?

    Oh boy ….

    Does this Mayor Race and Town need a … MULLIGAN !!?

    No other Gimme’s …

  223. 224 allanwscott

    It is truly AMAZING that this arrest comes a week and a day before the election. It is also truly amazing the article bashing Miron on the second page of the CT Post on Sunday, as well as Rich Weizel’s article in the same paper the same day. WOW!!!!!! It seems too coincidental. Does Harkins & company have that much clout?

  224. 225 jezebel282

    Allan,

    The arrest of Richard Miron for dozens of counts of First Degree Larceny came on May 13 2008. It has been on the docket 13 times.

    The arrest of three Stratford PD officers suspected of “leaking” Christian Miron’s background report came on June 24th 2009.

    In Richard Miron’s case, Mayor Moron allowed him to continue to serve as Democratic Registrar of Voters (at full pay) until Dec 12th 2008 (7 months). Because according to Miron he “was innocent until proven guilty.

    In Captain McNneil’s and Lt Soto’s case, they were suspended (and remain so) without pay immediately (3 months, so far). No “innocent until proven guilty” in this Town if your name is not “Miron”.

  225. 226 1george1

    It is no secret who the CT. POST supports and destest in most
    political races.

    At least Gail Brown kinda balanced her attack, with Miron’s positions
    at the end of her all out attack on Miron in the first 1/2 of the piece.

    I have no doubts about the prejudices and positions of the CT. POST.
    I think they supported BUSH – CHENEY.

    I spoke to a 20+ year Stfd PD, who told me Soto was the finest officer he
    ever worked with. I do not know Soto or Farmer well.
    I like McNeil.
    I have reasons not to like Mossman & DICKS Miron & Burturla.

    I feel sorry for John Burturla.
    I have mixed feelings, as posted about Imbro, for reasons posted.
    I think Mike is probably the most decent of them, but there are
    some things, that need investigating to be put to rest.

  226. 227 jezebel282

    George,

    Miron was so convincing a liar last time, the Post endorsed him. I doubt they will make that mistake twice.

    As for John Buturla…he is an enthusiastic Miron suck-up.

  227. 228 jezebel282

    Update:

    Miron to pay $70K for grave errors
    Published: 06:06 p.m., Thursday, May 6, 2010

    Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said Thursday former Lakeview Monuments owner Richard Miron has agreed to pay $78,098.28 in restitution to 70 customers from whom he stole money.

    Miron, a former political force and Stratford Democratic Registrar of Voters, took money and orders for headstones and engravings but failed to deliver them to the grieving families.

    Many of the families reported the crime to Blumenthal’s office which investigated as did the State’s Attorney.

    Miron pleaded guilty to a larceny and awaits sentencing. He agreed to make restitution during his plea and Blumenthal said victims can expect restitution in two phases, with the first phase beginning within a couple of months.

    No fines? No penalties at all? Not even interest? Nice work Mr. Blumenthal.

    What was that guy’s name, Phyl? Schiff?

  228. 229 1george1

    Where is the Criminal State’s Attorney’s office on this?

    They are the ones who can get prison time, NOT Blumenthol.
    Blumenthol can go after Civil Remedies / Relief.

    Why hasn’t the FBI / Justice looked at this from a Racketering angle,
    with money from Dickie to Jimmy and influence on Town contracts?

    The Town Council ratifies contracts / budgets, but the Administation
    negotiates and signes or doesn’t sigh contracts…..

    Which was worse for the Stratfford Tax payers?

    What happened to the D + R parties of FDR / Truman + Lincoln/IKE?

    “Or suggesting to Sudds that Republicans are the anti-christ”

    They aren’t?

  232. 233 1george1

    Much of my information comes from real Democrats and real Republicans
    who recognize the DARK SIDE, and do not like it.

    Interesting message from the old movie sneakers and the Dan Brown
    books which focus some of the Spielberg and Bond themes.

  233. 234 jezebel282

    George,

    I am not sure we have any of those in Stratford.

    Richard Miron is still a member of the Democratic Town Committee despite pleading guilty to a felony larceny charge(s).

    At some point you would think someone on the committee would have enough balls guts to ask for his removal.

  234. 235 1george1

    Jeze,

    I definitely know genuine D + R in Stratford.
    I also know those who play the game of “pretend.”

    There are some who try to play me.
    Some succeed. Some succeeded.
    It is all good. I do not need much.
    Some also use my ideas for their own.
    My advantage is knowing the agenda or variation.

    There are others who are NFG.

    As bad as they are, and some are dangerous,
    they pale to the real DARK SIDE.

    Lighter sides:
    Last year Alvin created a program to give certificates of
    appreciation to athletes from SHS + BHS who made
    ALL STATE / ALL CONFERENCE / etc.
    Maybe 120 kids.
    Alvin created, assembled, and awarded the certificate by himself.
    Alvin, being Alvin, mispronounced names and stumbled.
    Yet – he did good.
    He recognized kids who deserve recognition.
    Some of those cretificates will make parents and kids proud, as
    some think it is a big deal for a Town Official to award them.
    (Jimmy could not be bothered)
    20 – 30 – 40 years from now some of those kids will stumble on those
    certificates or their kids or grand children will find them, and the
    recipient will revel in stories of the GOOD OLE DAYS of HS

    Bunnell HS had nice producion of Guys n Dolls
    I counted
    44 kids on stage.
    18 stagehand listed in the program
    12 – 14 in band pit

    These are good uses of our tax dollars.

    – Conversely

    When did Stratford become subordinate to and worse than Bridgeport?

    When I read Wikipedia about Al Capone and rampant corruption, where
    only a couple of Federal Accountants were not on the take ….

    Remind you of any places in the USA?
    Remind you of Stratford?

    I think Jeze, Phyllis, and Chris are real Democrats among others.
    I think Sudds, Mayor 2013, Ron, Phin, and others consider themselves
    as real …

    I define a real R or D as someone who would not take part in a scheme
    and believes in FDR based ideas like new deal, square deal, fair deal.

    and who believes in government by the people, for the people, and of
    the people, supporting Inalienable Rights and willing / just consent of
    the governed.

    and who believes IKE’s warnings about unwarranted influence and control
    of public opinion by elites is NOT a good or desirable thing.

    Jeze,
    I believe there are good R + I + D = and when they awake, we will be R I D
