  5. 5 sudds

    Who the @#$% didn’t give Miron a 1???

    Laura was that you???

  6. 6 1george1

    I gave myself a 4 and PCS and someone else (jeze?) a 3.

    If everyone gave PCS a 4 there woud have to be 6 or more voters
    Haven’t computed how mayny it would take to get to get 3.29?

    HUGE UPSET!!!

    Burturla is LOWER than JIM MIRON?
    They were the only two, whom I gave a one.

    Costello is almost as distructed as Jim Miron,
    and my 2 for him, is probably the only difference?

    How come we did not include NORM?
    Oh. I ralized there were no negative numbers… 🙂

    Survey Notes:

    Apparently the overnight period is the time Mironistas come out. I am going to leave the voting open anyway. Hopefully, people who are awake and about during daylight hours will take the time to vote.

    SECRET GOVERNMENT ALERT!!!

    As if the 2 hour executive session last week about Long Beach West was not enough, Republican Town Council Chairman Mike Henrick has called ANOTHER special meeting for the day after Labor Day (Tuesday evening) to discuss Long Beach West.

    Edited by Jezebel…..Once is enough, thank you, Officer Sean….

    More early returns:

    James R. Miron -1.37-
    Richard Buturla -1.38-
    Jon Best -2.31-
    Gavin Forrester III -2.38-
    Mike Henrick -1.85-
    Domenic Costello -1.44-
    George Mulligan -1.94-
    Patricia Sperling -3.30-
    The Stratford Observer -1.69-
    Jezebel -3.25-

    Scale:

    1 = Most dishonest
    4 = Most honest

    These results are a bit depressing. It is clear that those involved in leading this Town have the least amount of credibility. It might be helpful if they didn’t lie as much.

  10. 10 1george1

    Looking at the ratings about my honesty, Jeze
    it appears your readers / minimal posters:

    1) confuse or define honesty with people they like & agree with.

    2) are themselves dishonest. (In some cases = very likely)

    3) just dislike what I post and want to use the poll politically, like they do while cheating the system, as some of them have done. (Very likely)

    These results are a bit depressing. It is clear that those
    involved in leading this Town (excludes me)

    have the least amount of credibility.
    (The narrow minded, self centered blogger poster, don’t like me,
    which is fine and they choose not to believe unpopular truths
    about themselves (= my credibility, but NOT Honesty)
    and the vampires which are the leaders of the political parties,
    LOCALLY / STATE / FED.

    It might be helpful if they didn’t lie as much.
    (Including some blog posters who both support and hate Mirons)

    George for someone who is unstable and rants a lot of times off topic, I think your doing very well. Or the others are doing very bad.

    The question is not do you like someone or their ideas, its “do you trust them’, that means, to me, when the rubber hits the road, can you rely that the actions are trustworthy. Although I am sure you do things that in your heart feel are correct, due to your rants and instability, most people could not risk trusting you in the literal sense of the word.

  12. 12 1george1

    I guess having having an average of 130 people bowl in the league
    which you run is a mark of unstability?

    Or creating and running 3 HS Class reunions when the officers could
    not be bothered and then starting the forth, with carry over seed
    money, only to see the successors squander it is the mark of someone
    who lacks stable leadership abilities and responsibility…

    Perhaps it is unstable to be part of mens softball teams for 15 years,
    and create/run a recreational basketball program concurrantly is the
    mark of someone not worthy of trust…

    Maybe it is the $ 19,000 + raised for MDA in 2 years, after getting the
    bowling league people to turn back $ 435 out of $ 700, to turn into a
    $ 500 donation, which when called in, was called back for verification,
    because people do that to get on TV. Our leading Fund Raisers made
    TV, but I preferred to stay behind the scenes.

    Helping run a 22 team co-ed softball team for over 10 years, while actively
    raising funds for charity, makes me unworthy of trust.

    Or maybe it is 6 years served in Naval Reserve Sea Cadets, having taken
    an oath to “defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic”
    and then taking the oath again a year later in part of a 17 year career in
    the USPS, which was uneventful for the first 12 to 13 years, is something
    causal to rant – when those people entrusted to uphold the LAW, uphold
    the rules, and uphold GOOD FAITH cause problems, much like those who
    did so in Stratford….?

    To testify, much like survivors of war, crime, or holocaust … is that a rant?

    To place everything you own, stake much of your inheritance, be forced
    from a stable career with prime benefits, to protect fellow workers and
    their families and your family and the families of support, the mark of some
    one …. unworthy of trust?

    To be forced into years of denial about certain forces in government, after
    several years of relentless harrassment, after seeing your father harassed
    in years prior with NO way to RELATE to what he was going through, and
    then to WORK, work, work, quietly and persistently to (like diogenes) try
    to find honest men and women, who are like minded in their belief about
    “inalienable” rights, just concent of the governed, and equal protection of
    the law to try, try try, to have a stable system because it is enlightened,
    logical, and the objective of TRULY representative government, a mark of
    someone who is unstable?

    Crazy to prefer to believe in the better nature of humanity, perhaps…

    But:

    Untrustworthy? To work against liars, cheaters, thieves and worse?

    Unstable? To live in the same home 30 years, with a 17 year federal career
    until I tried to uphold my oath and protect peoples rights? And to work
    against Stratford political inanities and subornation since 1998 …

    Rantings of a paranoid, who has proveable and substantive damages?
    Has Jeze ranted?
    Has FOS ranted?
    What about Cain or Cyclops or On Target or PCS or Laura or Mike R or
    Star or Officer Sean – any rants among them?

    RHETTORICAL QUESTION TIME:
    FOS would you agree of disagree that there “CAN” be relationships of a
    “Political” or “Governmental” nature between/among persons at
    LOCAL
    STATE
    FEDERAL

    levels of Government and Parties?

    ~~~~

    FOS – The above is unfair on my part, since I recognized that since you are a Lawyer, and have proven abilities to access LAW, “I know,” that “you know” that the Federal Departments and Agencies are Statutorially MANDATED, within the U. S. CODE, to work with each other, … and with the State and Local Departments and Agencies,
    …along with the 3 Branches of Government?

    Being called crazy, makes me crazy …. 😉

    Actually, I am the most honest and ethical person I know.
    And many a times, I kinda wished I were less so.

    My social life ended in 1984 ….
    They NEVER left me an out ….
    I have to look past the puppets who are all ego and no self respect.

    But those who knowingly have done harm, have a 12/1984 curse upon
    their souls, of which only I and the final judger can absolve.
    There are a couple people whose circumstances forced them into
    choices they preferred not to make. Those desrved absolution…

    Then there are the mostly “unwitting…”

    Sorry to rant and bore all of you, for trying to get you to see beyond
    the horizon and the shadows on the cave walls ….

  13. 13 jezebel282

    George,

    The question in the survey is not “Who do you like the most?” or “Who do you think is the nicest person?”.

    The questions is “1. Please rate the people (Low=Left, High=Right) you would believe if they stated a fact to you:”

    And statements like “But those who knowingly have done harm, have a 12/1984 curse upon their souls, of which only I and the final judger can absolve.” don’t really help your score.

    You should not take this personally. You have been a declared candidate in almost every election. That’s why you are in there. You are doing no better (well, better than Miron) or worse than the other candidates.

  14. 14 jezebel282

    The voting seems to have died down.

    So….some commentary on the “Trust Me” test:

    James R. Miron-1.48-
    Richard Buturla-1.55-
    Jon Best-2.40-
    Gavin Forrester III-2.23-
    Mike Henrick-1.96 –
    Domenic Costello-1.49-
    George Mulligan-1.96-
    Patricia Sperling-3.20-
    The Stratford Observer-1.71-
    Jezebel-3.18-

    1 = Least Credible
    4= Most Credible

    Mayor Moron is the least credible politician in Town. Lower even than Buturla and Costello. It could be that he lies a lot…but that’s just my guess.

    It certainly does not look good for Costello’s chances as an “Independent”.

    Gavin Forrester III and Jon Best are virtually tied, but both have some serious credibility issues.

    Mike Henrick has squandered his opportunity to be an effective Council Chairman.

    The Stratford Observer is viewed as the spokesperson for Miron.

    George Mulligan has been discussed.

    Pat Sperling should seriously consider some public office, if not mayor.

    Jezebel…amazing. People believe an avatar more than they believe their mayor.

  15. 15 gforrester

    Pat – how about accepting a position on the new Transportation Committee. So far it’s the 2 GBTA members – Kubic and Goodsell – Two Council Members – Henrick and Forrester – and Michael Skurchak – Director of Operations of Savoy Linen. I’m still looking for two members from the Railroad Commuters group (hopefully you will be one) and one additional business representative.

    We need a stronger voice to expand our transportation base to include larger train platforms – upgraded station – parking garage that the State has forever been promissing us – better utalization of GBTA bus routes to fit the transportation needs of business and employees.

    Shoot me an email gforrester@snet.net – thanks.

    oh and Jez – “Gavin Forrester III and Jon Best are virtually tied, but both have some serious credibility issues.” – we also need to loose some weight lol

  16. 16 jezebel282

    Mr. Forrester,

    “oh and Jez – “Gavin Forrester III and Jon Best are virtually tied, but both have some serious credibility issues.” – we also need to loose some weight lol”

    Really?

    (Some are just too easy, Mr. Forrester)

  17. Gavin ~

    You should have an e-mail from me soon, if not already.

    Jeze ~

    WOW, I’m still up there on the trust issue… makes me feel good.

    I’ve still got something gnawing at me – I can’t find anywhere in the budget the costs (purchase, maintenance, gas, etc.) associated with cars provided to Town “executives” such as the mayor, chief of police, etc.

    I’d love to see a list of exactly who gets a town vehicle (e.g., 24/7 town provided and paid for). In listening to Sarah Palin’s speech at the RNC, I was reminded that there are towns/cities, states, etc., that this is a “perk” and that it is probably something that can be modified. Taxpayers shouldn’t be paying for the 24/7 vehicles – driven on and off the clock. This means we’re paying for the insurance, gas, maintenance, taxes, lease fees, etc. In looking at the budget – I found absolutely nothing – no itemization, no line items, nada. My question: where is this hidden and why? Is it necessary for the Chief of Police to be provided a town vehicle that he drives to and from work? Isn’t there something a little less elaborate, like he drives his own vehicle to and from his town of residence (Roxbury, I think) and then has a Chief-Of-Police cruiser for his use “on the job”???? We should really be looking at saving the taxpayers money and we’ve got to start really buckling down with the spending habits.

    George ~ any info on this stuff…..???

  18. 18 sudds

    “oh and Jez – “Gavin Forrester III and Jon Best are virtually tied, but both have some serious credibility issues.” – we also need to loose some weight lol”

    I’d hold off for now… those extra pounds could work in your favor when it comes time to “throw down” with Miron!!!

  19. 19 1george1

    Sudds & Gavin,

    I think I have the LEAD in the SUMMO WRESTLING weight class.

    PCS,

    Jeze answered you inquiry about the police chief vehicle. I see multiple
    Town Vehicles in the Week end, besides patrol cars, EMC, Fire Trucks.

    If you send Gavin an e-mail, he will either get you an answer or direct you
    to the right place – maybe Public Works (who probably does most repairs?)

    Jeze,

    How many votes have been cast?’

    In my race vs Gavin and Chuck, but really against Miron / Norm
    I got 5.3 % of the cast votes.
    Better percent than DODD or BIDEN. 😉

  20. 20 jezebel282

    George,

    “How many votes have been cast?’”

    If I recall, there were like 168 or 167.

  21. 21 jezebel282

    Apparently, there will be a different test. And I don’t think Miron or Buturla will win this one either.

    Stratford Police Union Local 407

    NO CONFIDENCE VOTE SCHEDULED SEPT.29 – OCT.1

    ( I sure wish those guys/girls would fix the links on their website)

  22. 22 1george1

    Jeze:
    “How many votes have been cast?’”

    If I recall, there were like 168 or 167.

    Hmmmm.. There were 10 candidates.
    Each candidate or most candiates got a vote.
    Does that mean there were only 17 voters? 😉

  23. 23 jezebel282

    George,

    No.

    Only you received 17. 😉

  24. 24 1george1

    Jeze,

    I was teasing about the precious number 17. (pe)

    Could the real reason for editting my comments be that I don’t kiss your
    butt and are getting too close to the truth about some of your friends
    and yourself, as being very similar to Miron (or worse)?

  25. 25 sudds

    George…

    I believe that I have single handedly proven that Jez does NOT edit based upon personal attacks!!! 😛

    Personal info maybe (and I couldn’t blame him/her/it for that)… but he/she/it can take a political/ideological attack or two!!!

  26. 26 1george1

    Sudds,

    I have to “partially” conceed based on # 24 being posted, rather than
    editted based on relevancy. (this is 3 very brief paragraphs)

    When if / you get editted by straying, which you do (but mostly in an
    innocuous fun way and not undermining their belief structure) –
    time will tell.

    Please google “Emancipation of Belief” by J. K Galbraith from 35 year
    old scenario on the planning and operations systems, which IKE
    referred to as scientific technologic elite controlling Public Opinion
    in his Military Industrial Complex speach. It goes after fund-a-mental
    assumptions, conventional wisdom, and beliefs = credibly!

  27. 27 jezebel282

    George,

    “Could the real reason for editting my comments be that I don’t kiss your
    butt and are getting too close to the truth about some of your friends
    and yourself, as being very similar to Miron (or worse)?”

    No.

    The thing about leading an ethical and honest life is that you don’t have to worry about that sort of thing. Even if you knew who I was, it wouldn’t bother me. Remember, George, I am not a politician nor a lawyer.

    The real reason would be that you write extremely irrelevant, long, disconnected, cryptic and sometimes incoherent posts that have no interest to anyone and only belong in your personal diary.

    Oh..and, George? We both know that you are too nice of a person to mean the mean things you write longer than 1/2 hour.

    So there.

  28. 28 1george1

    Oh..and, George? We both know that you are too nice of a person
    to mean the mean things you write longer than 1/2 hour.

    OUCH!

    Jeze, when I come after a blogger, would you agree or disagree
    that 90 % of the time it is a rebuttal or counter attack?

    I do admit to insulting Burturla / Norm / Mirons and others 😉 often,
    but on a strictly political basis, and I try to keep away from personal
    issues and physical issues,
    except when I insult my well rounded figure.

    Jeze, can those readers and bloggers who do NOT like my posts,
    simply scroll past my typing?
    Ignore me.
    FOS stated his preference to do so.
    Nnanerak stated her preference to do so.
    Others stated they do it.

    I do NOT BUY newspapers or magazines I do not like.
    I skip all kinds of stories, which offend me.
    I channel surf every time I see MANY, MANY TV shows.

    (for the record, I was not making fun of Nnanerak, which is Karen Ann,
    spelled backward. For those who dance to Hava Nagila, spell my last name
    backwards, since Middle East and far East read right to left, while Western
    readers go from left to right. Jewish friends taught me to read both ways.)

    Why not let each person’s mouse do the editting for them to my blogs?

    Jeze, your don’t have some power which forces people to read
    every single post do you? 😉

    Of course if I wrote the 7 dirty words or got personal, libelous, or
    slandering – THAT I WOULD EXPECT and RESPECT for EDITTING.

    I also would REPSECT EDITTING SPAM, which had NO THOUGHT content,
    and people posting under multiple IP addresses.

    Those are far, far different than political arguments about relevancy,
    wouldn’t everyone agree? 8) 🙂

  29. 29 jezebel282

    George,

    I don’t know how much further backwards you’d like me to bend for you. I have given you your own page to post your heart out. Actually TWO of your own pages:

    https://stratfordcharter.wordpress.com/2008/05/15/georges-page/

    https://stratfordcharter.wordpress.com/2008/07/24/georges-letters/

    All I (and others) ask is that you keep your posts elsewhere on topic. The last resort was editing.

    “Jeze, can those readers and bloggers who do NOT like my posts, simply scroll past my typing?”

    There are also rules about dog waste on the sidewalks in this town. Sure, you could simply step over it, but it is a nuisance.
    One can get carpal tunnel syndrome scrolling pasts your posts. Your “enter” key is apparently malfunctioning.

    Post anything you want on your pages. That way if readers want to stop and collect your pearls of wisdom they know where to go. Otherwise they are forced to read your post for a least a paragraph or two before they realize it’s just George going off again.

  30. 30 officersean

    Typical Jezebel censorship.

    No one cares that you gave him his own pages….what is telling is that you do not want his comments on other pages.

    I think the man is a disturned nut but you have all stroked his ego and played with him all along. Now you want to put him in the corner or at the kids table.

    Tsk tsk.

  31. 31 jezebel282

    Officer Sean,

    “Typical Jezebel censorship.”

    Nice try. I have only deleted irrelevant items from George about Masons/CIA/FBI/NSA/Big OIL and other things. I have edited exactly one of FOS’ responses in reply to an irrelevant post from George and…YOU for posting private information about a citizen. If you do it again, you will be banned permanently in whatever permutation you appear in.

    You will also note that is the only posting of yours I have deleted.

    In defense of George, when he does stay on topic, he is insightful and informative. Unlike you, he cares deeply about the welfare of Stratford citizens.

  32. 32 genericscreename

    I find it incredible that there is no one on the list with the exception of Gavin Forrester who is capable of being a mayor and leading this town into the future.

    the mayor has lost most of his credibility

    Costello is a loud mouth baffoon, who has no credentials and torid past , imagine what will happen when his police department employee records get foi’d during the next election

    Best has not held a position of employment longer than 16 months in 20 years and also had a closet full of skeletons.

    People, both the republican and democratic parties are in trouble in this town. none of them have any credable leadership who has stepped forward to take control.

    the next elections will be another dog and pony show

  33. 33 1george1

    Jeze:
    In defense of George, when he does stay on topic, he is insightful and informative. Unlike you, he cares deeply about the welfare of Stratford citizens.

    George:
    For someone who wants me to edit & limit myself, Jeze made a very nice
    case for my relevance. Where Jeze & I disagree, is about interrelatedness
    and relevance, which IF EDITTED, I would not be able to convert sceptics
    into believers, such as GOOGLE: “Emancipation of Belief.”

    I care about the welfare of people.
    Haven’t I even posted that BURTURLA / BERCHEM should LOAN Dick Miron the
    money he needs and pay for an INSURANCE POLICY, listing them as Beneficiary?
    A) People would get their Tombstone
    B) Dick Miron could get probation / AR
    C) The loaners would be repaid with interest, on money they could borrow, in
    no small part due to earnings accrued with the help of Dick Miron types.


    Generic hurt my feelings:
    I did not qualify for the DOG and PONY SHOW.

    I was considering naming my political party > WATCHDOG or PIT BULL
    or PAL 0 me NO

    I declare I am not longer a GADFLY – I am a MAVERIC! 😉

    From this morning’s Connecticut Post:

    STRATFORD Former secretary sues Miron, town
    A former mayoral secre­tary, Patricia Blumstein, has followed up an age discrimi­nation complaint she filed two years ago with the state’s Commission on Human Rights and Opportuni­ties after being fired with a lawsuit against Mayor James R. Miron and the town.
    Blumstein, 63, now the sec­retary to the school system’s chief operating officer, Ben Branyan, said she filed the law­suit against Miron and the town after she was notified by the CHRO that it has still not is­sued a finding of whether there is “ reasonable cause” for her complaint and does not know when it would.
    Because the two-year stat­ute of limitations to take legal action is running out, Blum­stein decided to file a suit in Bridgeport Superior Court be­fore the Sept. 28 deadline.
    “ The clock was ticking and we decided to move forward with the lawsuit because we have no idea when the CHRO will make a determination,” said Blumstein’s husband, David.
    Blumstein, seeking in ex­cess of $ 15,000 in damages, claims in the lawsuit that the mayor engaged in “retaliatory practices” by firing her when she filed the CHRO complaint after she was transferred to an­other department and “falsely cited budgetary reasons” for her dismissal.
    Miron replaced her in the “ identical position with a fe­male 40 years younger and less experienced and qualified,” the suit contends.
    Miron said Wednesday the lawsuit is “completely baseless and without merit,” and that the town will “ mount a rigor­ous defense in court.”

  35. 35 jezebel282

    Officer Sean,

    Gee. That doesn’t sound good for Mayor Moron. That’s not like you.

  36. 36 starlooker

    I for one want to thank Pat for going ahead with this. She is a true role model for us women over 50. What was done to her and the way it was done was terrible. My thoughts and prayers are with you Pat and thank you.

    Et al,

    More interesting developments in Stratford, I have verified as of yesterday that the entire town council, last session and current and the Town of Stratford were served individually with summons’s for an action by a Shelton Developer.

    From what I have been told, the WPCA did not act and allow the developer to connect into the Stratford sewage system, and the current council failed to act on the same issue.

    lets see where this one goes………………

  38. 38 sudds

    “Blumstein, seeking in ex­cess of $15,000 in damages”

    GREAT… with Miron’s ego you KNOW he’s not going to allow a settlement… so we’ll now be paying about $100k in legal fees to defend a $15k case!!!

  39. 39 jezebel282

    Sudds,

    ALL cases filed in Superior Court must claim a minimum of $15,000. I doubt the damages and penalties will be only $15,000.

  40. 40 1george1

    Jeze,

    Are Officer Sean and Generic the same person?
    I doubt they would use the same IP, if they were the same person.
    Maybe he.she forgets which one he/she blogs from.

    Is Office Sean looking at putting Pat in a bad light, whereas bloggers
    tend to like Pat and read it the opposite way>

    Generic’s post is kinda anti-Town Council.
    Who do we know that tries to put himself in a good light at the expense of the TC?

    Sudds
    You are correct about legal cost.
    My advise to Pat is to be careful in her
    1. Choice of Lawyer
    2. Docketing of a Judge, friendly to Berchem / Burturla / F. O. P.
    3. Jury POOL. It is a whole science to rig the jury with too many people
    to be disqualified by 4 challenges. At least Joe Merly claimed I was limited
    to 4 challenges in the Jury selection process.

    Sudds,
    If I was not 100% sure of hard feelings on the part of certain people who
    are friendly to Pat Blumstein and Pat Naylor, I would be suspicious about
    law suits for building Burturla’s billing.

    It was exactly the reason I wanted Esq. Williams to sue Mossman as an
    individual, instead of his capacity as police chief and why I did not want
    to include LoSchiavo, Capossi, or Evans.

    Interesting amagrams related to intelligence community

    Mossman – O. S. S. Man “M”
    Capossi – I O. S. S. Cap
    Evans – Sane “V”
    LoSchiavo – I forgot what I had in past
    Imbro – imbroglio (add “G” lio)
    Vedock – (google Vedoq society)

    “Are Officer Sean and Generic the same person?”

    Two separate computers.

    “Is Office Sean looking at putting Pat in a bad light, whereas bloggers
    tend to like Pat and read it the opposite way”

    Beats me. I can’t remember anyone accusing Officer Sean of being intelligent.

    NOTE:

    At a certain level in the (Military) Intelligence Community they:

    1) Monitor all Voice Data Communications

    2) Are operationally involved in all kinds of CODES. (To them it is second nature)
    (To bloggers and most civilians, it is an alien language & culture)

    3) Have been the means to be Economic Engines for Town / Counties
    for the Executive and Legislative Branches

    4) Are directly involved in Business and Political decsions, since many former
    military officers become involved on Boards of Directors or ranking Corporate
    Managment or in key positions in privately held.
    Example:
    FEDEX created by ex-Military
    INTERNET was part university, part military.
    All Communications Satellites were government owned or sponsored/
    connected.

    5) Stratford has disproportionate D. C. / M. I. C. personnel due to

    “More interesting developments in Stratford, I have verified as of yesterday that the entire town council, last session and current and the Town of Stratford were served individually with summons’s for an action by a Shelton Developer.

    From what I have been told, the WPCA did not act and allow the developer to connect into the Stratford sewage system, and the current council failed to act on the same issue.

    lets see where this one goes………………”

    Yes the WPCA (all council members) were served and one of the issues stems from the fact that the City of Shelton has not followed the terms of the intermunicipal agreement dated 1983 by failing to provide a flow meter (Stratford installed one) and has been sending more waste into Stratford than the agreement called for putting more of a strain on our system. Attorney Kevin Kelly has been working on a new agreement with Shelton for the past several years but Shelton has been less than responsive. Court action was unfortunately not avoidable.

    Gavin,
    There also has been much discussion about the cost of the deputy chief’s new choppers. Is it true the we lowly taxpayers had to pay 75K$$$$ for those suckers? Can you post a link to a copy of his benefit package that shows us where this was allowed? and can you tell us who signed off on it and where/who did the check go to? I find it very disturbing to think that this is allowed at all, and if council has knowledge of it why for the love of God did you allow that to happen?????????????????????????????

    I doubt our dental plan is THAT good but honestly it’s the first I have heard about $75 K for teeth. The benefit plans are not on line but I’ll make an inquiry to see if this report is accurate, and no the Town Council NEVER voted to allocate that kind of money for teeth so we would not ever let that happen if we were aware of it.

    I was interviewed by Mr. Tolomeo so I am aware that he was hired by the Administration but I am not aware of what the hourly rate is because the administration hired him directly. Again I will inquire.

    I can think of so many interpretations and synonyms. … 🙂

  55. Mr. Forrester,
    I want to direct you to the Insurance/HR department – so you can save yourself some time. The teeth payment came from a claim made by the D/C who at the time was either a Sgt or LT, that his police position was so stressful it caused him to grind his teeth in his sleep so he filed an injury on duty claim that this was an injury caused on duty as a police officer. The claim was filed with Eileen Murphy the town’s Insurance Supervisor (remember her)? She fought the claim on behalf of the town – but he won the case and the town had to pay for the repairs and reconstruction of his jaw etc etc to the tune of $75M. He got all new teeth, capped and or implants and total reconstructive surgery and full pay for all the days he took off as a result of his dental surgery and repairs. And, if anything occurs arising from his teeth, we the taxpayers must foot the bill for the rest of the good D/C life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It was not something he got because of dental insurance. No sir, we the taxpayers paid for the whole thing – in its entirety. These are the people who get promoted in the Miron administration.

  56. 56 gforrester

    MY GOD!!!!!

    What year did this happen and how did we loose that case. If a lower rank was stressful we better budget a lot more money now.

  59. 59 1george1

    I have found Gavin to be highly credible in what he chooses to answer.

    Everybody, and I mean everybody, has things they have every right to
    choose not to answer.

    Gavin choose to make a public position on representative government
    stating words to the effect that he agreed with JIM MIRON’S reply to
    Public Forum, as it relates to the Town Charter.
    > I WAS STUNNED!
    NO, not by the fact that Gavin agreed with Jim (OK – a little)
    I was stunned in that Jim Miron’s position was almost eloquent.
    I previously blogged that I too would prefer representative government.

    Here are 3 things I would like Gavin to reply to:

    1 – Yet, honestly Gavin, have or have NOT, Stratford politicians abused
    representative government?

    2 – Yet, honestly Gavin, have or have NOT, USA & CT. politicians abused
    representative government?

    3 – Gavin, On Sept 8 Bob Sammis and I made supplemental presentations
    to the FAC Cover Letter and FAC Report, with NOTHING reported in
    the PRESS. I KNOW YOU READ virtually EVERYTHING SENT to YOU!
    You are aware of DISPARATE SITUATIONS. Why have you remained
    completely silent over the last 5 years of being a Town councilor on
    the PENSION BOARD cascading pensions and expansive obligations?
    (Yes I know there is a contract – that will be a follow up – if answered)

    OK, this can become V E R Y interesting.

    if
    answered?

    who is laying odds?

  60. 60 gforrester

    No wonder – before I got on the council in 2003 so 1st of me hearing about it.

    MY GOD!!!!!

    “The teeth payment came from a claim made by the D/C who at the time was either a Sgt or LT, that his police position was so stressful it caused him to grind his teeth in his sleep so he filed an injury on duty claim that this was an injury caused on duty as a police officer.”

    What year did this happen and how did we loose that case. If a lower rank was stressful we better budget a lot more money now.

    Part of my lawsuit damages vs. Mossman was for loss of teeth from
    grinding / stress. Back issues too.
    I made no secret there were pre-existing.

    My entire law suit was for less than the GOLD TEETH.

    Oh, didn’t JOB, from the Biblical Book of JOB also lose teeth
    from grinding his teeth>
    Maybe the D / C wants to be or envisions himself like JOB?

  62. 62 1george1

    Gavin must have been composing, at the same time mine was posting
    the one just before his.

    Then I immediate started posting the Book of Job post, after I saw
    my post, but Gavin’s popped in before my short post.

    Means it is very likely he has seen my 3 question challenge.

    I am well aware of relationships among Masons and Job’s Comforters.
    There are people who practice the verse.
    Some practice a perverse.

  63. 63 gforrester

    1 – Yet, honestly Gavin, have or have NOT, Stratford politicians abused
    representative government?

    Yes some have George but I personally have not and none of the current Council members have to my knowledge.

    2 – Yet, honestly Gavin, have or have NOT, USA & CT. politicians abused
    representative government?

    Again yes some have George and I believe we are going thru it once again with Alaska Senator Stevens and NY Rep Rangel.

    3 – Gavin, On Sept 8 Bob Sammis and I made supplemental presentations
    to the FAC Cover Letter and FAC Report, with NOTHING reported in
    the PRESS. I KNOW YOU READ virtually EVERYTHING SENT to YOU!
    You are aware of DISPARATE SITUATIONS. Why have you remained
    completely silent over the last 5 years of being a Town councilor on
    the PENSION BOARD cascading pensions and expansive obligations?
    (Yes I know there is a contract – that will be a follow up – if answered)

    It was not reported in the press because the Mayor and I were more interesting and controversial than facts and figures. Reports don’t sell papers and create massive blog streams, discourse does. George I have not remained silent in so much as while a member of the pension board I have voted to maximize our return on investments, change investment managers, changed investment strategy, fully funded the pension obligation as presented by our acturary, AND co-sponsored the very Financial Advisory Committee that generated the report. You in essence answered your own question by pointing out that there are contracts in place and arbritration awards that have been lost by the Town which created benefit levels that can not be ignored or else we will be running up even more legal bills from law suits. The Town has even gone so far as to change retirement plans for new employees but we have to honor our obligation under previously agreed to plans.

    Allow me to INSERT a qualified, which I unintentionally ommitted.

    Why have you remained completely silent

    (TO THE PRESS)

    over the last 5 years of being a Town councilor on
    the PENSION BOARD cascading pensions and expansive obligations?

    ———————————————————————————–

    It was not reported in the press because the Mayor and I were
    more interesting and controversial than facts and figures.

    Reports don’t sell papers and create massive blog streams,
    discourse does.

    GAVIN – Was the action between you and the Mayor planned
    to take headlines away from the contents of the Reports?

    THAT was the RESULT, regardless of INTENT, which you note.
    I must admire that posting.

    —————————————————————————————–

    “I have voted to maximize our return on investments,

    (I am glad you didn’t vote to minimize them or we would really…)

    change investment managers,

    (see next)

    changed investment strategy,

    (In fairness to investments, in 1998 a blind monkey with a dart could
    have picked a 10 % + ROI. Since Y2K – 9/11 – OIL PRICES – there seems
    to be one “DISASTER by DESIGN” after another “DISASTER by DESIGN .”)
    (Gavin should giggle at this, as it is the name of JON’s business.)

    fully funded the pension obligation as presented by our acturary,

    (How it is the PENSION is 65 % or so officially fully funded and likely 50 %?)

    AND co-sponsored the very Financial Advisory Committee
    that generated the report.”

    To my knowledge this is all true.
    However, there is contention about the particulars of the report,
    whereas 2/3rds of the work group essentially put out a minority
    report.
    1) Where the 2/3rd of the work group felt the Cover letter and Report
    did not go far enough and wording although strong did not hit certain
    points
    2) Where a VOTED deletion was NOT DELETED in the COVER LETTER.
    3) Where the Cover Letter made the REPORT QUALIFIED
    4) Where 2/3rd of the Work Group were not getting information or
    interviews as requested. (I will not type that the work group WAS
    STEERED and finding prearranged, just that some things are left to
    be desired.)

    Since these were presented to the Town Council and in doing so
    are covered under FOI, they are fair game to address in this forum.

    ———————————————————————————————–

  68. 68 1george1

    You in essence answered your own question by pointing out
    that there are contracts in place and arbritration awards that
    have been lost by the Town which created benefit levels that
    can not be ignored or else we will be running up even more
    legal bills from law suits.

    (NO I knew what your answer would be. At least in part.)

    A) contracts in place –
    Q – Were there INTEREST CONFLICTS of NEGOTIATORS?
    Q – How do these compare with the private sector,
    Q – How do these compare with Federal contracts,
    Q – How do these compare with State Contracts,
    Q – How do these compare with Area Municipal,
    > Gavin – You have the report. Care to illuminate the readers… ?

    B) arbritration awards
    Q – Were there INTEREST CONFLICTS of NEGOTIATORS / LABOR
    CONSULTANTS / ATTORNEYS / MANAGERS ?
    Q – After contracts and arbitrations were lost,
    were the losers retained?
    were the losers given fee increases?
    > Gavin – You know the personnel & finance. Care to illuminate the readers… ?

    C) created benefit levels that can not be ignored
    > Gavin – You have the report, cover letter, Sammis supplement, and
    my supplement. Care to illuminate the readers…
    on some of the disparate benefit levels and benefits?

    ———————————————————————————–

    The Town has even gone so far as to change retirement plans
    for new employees

    I am 99 % sure there were 882 members of the DBP.
    This year I learned there are 982 members of the DBP.

    Gavin, is it true that newer members under Plan B or 401 a,
    wonder if there is fairness and / or patronage to the DBP,
    as compared to their hiring?

    Gavin, is it true that newer members under Plan B or 401 a,
    wonder if there was QUID PRO QUO to arrange for certain
    Department Heads to be hired?
    If, IF local 407 were to hire a private detective (wink, wink)
    and forensic auditor (wink, wink, wink) to eliminate flotsam
    and jetsam – could other driftwood be caught up in the debris?

    but we have to honor our obligation under previously agreed to plans.

    Gavin: In Bob Sammis supplemental letter he pointed out that
    the San Diego U. S. Attorney or State’s Attorney or City Attorney
    is seeking to repudiate Pension Contracts under FRAUD.

    You can check the blog http://www.pensiontsunami.com
    for a wide range of situations happening nation wide.

    I submitted a newspaper article about NY PENSIONS and an actuary
    who confessed he was working with the unions in a step above voodoo,

    Bob is not the bad guy.
    I am not the bad guy.
    I / we am / are the messenger(s).
    I have been warning the TC for 3 – 4 years along with a few other people.

    You were wise enough to create the FAC.
    I am wise enough, not to get suckered into signing a canard.
    Regardless of the FAC, if changes dont get done, and if Bob, myself,
    and others moved out of town today – would that change the FACTS,
    CURRENT OBLIGATIONS, and a destination over a water fall?

    Yo Gavin,

    Why does n’t the Town of Stratford possess the 2003
    1099 for Burturla?

    >>

    Yo Gavin

    I made copies of the 1998, 1999. 2001, 2002
    2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 Excel Summaries
    about Attorney Fees to
    Burturla / Berchem
    Kelly
    Florek (Head of the C. R. C. on Miron / Burturla Town Payrole)
    Cotter
    Bishop
    who else?

    Gavin as Town Councilor would you ask the finance department
    to create Excel Summaries for 2002 and all of 2003 for all the
    Town Attorneys, such as I provided for you and the Town Council
    at MY initiative?

    It might be something LOCAL 407 and the FIB, I mean FBI might
    find interesting, as to a “possibility” of a “QUID PRO QUO?”

    You Gavin,

    2002 and 2003, wasn’t that a Democratic controlled Town Council?
    You are a Democrat right?

    Lets see, counting backward for Gavin’s terms on the T. C. …
    2008 / 2009 – 2006 / 2007 – 2004 / 2005

    GREAT NEWS Gavin, it was before your time.

    Yo Gavin,
    What was the year of the GOLDEN PARACHUTE?
    Wasn’t that before your tenure?
    What were the terms of the GOLDEN PARACHUTE?

    I know multiple police and fire who were really unhappy
    that so many people who were NEVER INTENDED to be in the DBP
    were added to the DRAINING of the DBP, by adding obligations…….

    At least I was told they they believed
    “that so many people who were NEVER INTENDED to be in the DBP.”

    Yo Gavin,
    What was the YEAR(s) that the
    > Pension was unfunded by the Town Council?
    > number of RETIREES DOUBLED or TRIPLED compared to most years?
    > PENSION UNDERFUNDING increased by the greatest percentage?
    > PENSION OBLIGATION increased by the largest percentage?

    Yo Gavin,
    You may want to “officially” change back to being a Republican.

    Yo Gavin
    Considering one of your comments / inferences about “Team
    Stratford” and the (M. R.) Country Club Republicans, I suspect
    you might be more inclined to become an Independent than (R).

    Someone in the finance department went out of their way
    to make 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001 into the Excel format,
    which I gave to the Town Council and Gavin has them.

    I believe this was directed by his honor to have a comparison
    of Kevin Kelly in place, because previously I gave the Council
    copies of 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007.

    As Mr. Norko pointed out:

    The Town’s MUNIS accounting system was installed mid 2003.

    As a result we have the 2002 payments only in hard copy in
    the basement archives.

    Gavin, can you ask for 2008 in Excel?
    – Truthfully, I am unsure if information from Mr. Norko was
    FISCAL YEAR or PHYSICAL YEAR?
    – Isn’t FISCAL YEAR 2008 over?

    GAVIN –
    Thank you for SUBSTANCE and a CHANCE to DEBATE ISSUES and FACTS!

    If you ran for Mayor and if I ran for Mayor, I would likely take it easy
    on you in a DEBATE, compared to past Ballot candidates. 🙂 8) 😉

    Gavin, I pray this information helps you and good people to keep from
    being sucked into the mire of the mIRON CURTAIN and the BILLING
    BONANZA of Burturla / Berchump!

    Gavin,
    I too would be curious as to what year the dc made his teeth claim. Was it the same time that he found out his daughter was ill???????????????? Now that would cause some stress, or the year that she got pregnant the 1st or 2nd time, then almost died???????????? Or the year that she had the kidney transplant????? Was it the year that his son had a possible seizure while driving on the highway and almost got killed??????(the same one that drives a police car now)That stress is far more likely to be the cause of his issues, should we send him for a psych evaluation??? Is he fit to lead if he can’t handle the stress of writing a traffic ticket or deep 6’ing one???
    Here is a question. Once the award is made, if truth comes to light that was deliberately with held from the proceedings that would impact the outcome isn’t there a way to revisit the award?????????????????????? Even criminals on death row can get a new trial if new evidence is found. I would think that there is a way to handle this that would benefit the taxpayers. Will you look into it?

    ” GAVIN – Was the action between you and the Mayor planned
    to take headlines away from the contents of the Reports?”

    George I am not that good an actor – but if I was I would be part of the opening night act at the Shakespeare lol.

  74. 74 gforrester

    “Will you look into it?”

    It was reported that the incident occured when the DC was either a Sarg/LT which would have been quite a few years ago but I will look into it.

  75. 75 1george1

    Gavin,

    Is it true Team Stratford # 1, #2, # 3, and the future # 4 were modeled
    after “The Producers?

    George I am not that good an actor – but if I was I would be part
    of the opening night act at the Shakespeare lol.

    Gavin > I gave Bob Sammis my complete and unqualified support in his
    supplemental letter about the FAC.
    How often have you EVER seen me do that for ANYONE?

    In a similar spirit, I will take you at your word on the “incident.”

    Incidently:
    1) Unlike my 1998 arrest based on a disagreement between police
    chief mossman and I, where the POST, STAR, BARD, and REGISTER
    all did stories about the raucus Debbie Rose changing parties…

    A) Not a single one mentioned me. (Hence my desire for Joe Merly/
    John Williams to enter newspapers as foundational evidence to have
    at least 2 reporter testify to prove the negative)

    B) You guys HOGGED ALL of the HEADLINES. 😦 😉

    C) I have been asked when your tag team match will be on # 79?
    Actually it was more like a WWE Handicap match, since you started
    with Burturla, who riled up Henrich, who Gaveled Miron, who some
    how became embroiled with you.
    > Only Dick Miron or Vince McMahon could have scripted ….

    Incidently, will there be an unexpurgigated version aired?
    (Who is layin those odds? 😉

    Gavin,
    THANK YOU! If it has occurred in the last 10 years all of the above apply.

  77. 77 1george1

    How does one earn trust, when contentions are editted?

    Do readers and bloggers “trust” other viewers to make up their minds?

    A certain percent of bloggers deviate from the “HATE MIRON” theme
    of the Stratfordcharter blog, to critique me.
    NO PROBLEM.
    I ASK to RESPOND.

    If people do not want to read about contributory factors, who is holding
    a gun to their head? Just ignore my “rants” or “educational opinions / facts.”

    Of all the bloggers, NO ONE except Jeze, has posted more about more
    about the TOWN CHARTER than I have.

    NO ONE has brought forward, including JEZE more diverse information about
    ISSUES in STRATFORD than I have.

    I do not care if one loves me or hates me.

    I do care about unedited positions and the WHOLE TRUTH.

    We can disagree on what WHOLE TRUTH is?

    Yet, how does one discover the WHOLE TRUTH by blocking partial truths
    from being revealed and debated?

    Lastly, a couple days ago a couple bloggers took and connected some DOTS,
    much along the lines of a local conspiracy between a few local people in a
    couple of different parties….
    Guess who contributed to them opening thier knowledge and mind about a
    possibility of the “c” word?

    The more I am editted, the more the Miron curtain rejoices.

    You bloggers claim I am a fool.
    Let me prove it.
    Or let me prove you have been fooled, so you can protect yourselves?

    Or are you, as Jeze asked me: chicken?

    George,

    We both know that editing your comments is my last resort. I have given you TWO places to post whatever you’d like. You refuse to use them. You refuse to come anywhere near posting relevant material within a topic. And then you have the nerve to criticize my editing?

    Once more, George, in case you didn’t get it the first 15 times; This is a blog about Stratford politics and events. This is NOT a blog about George Mulligan and his life story, who he likes, who he dislikes, or who is conspiring with whom against George Mulligan.

    You can either post on the pages I have provided for you or you can be edited, the choice has always been yours.

    George, I strongly suggest that you click on the links and bookmark them.

    Jeze,

    You can ban me.
    You can edit me.
    You can disagree with my facts or opinions.

    But none of those will change what is the truth.

    You are highly intelligent, but very narrow minded.
    Same is said for FOS and maybe a couple others.
    Que sera, sera.

    PCS is relatively narrow focused, yet very intelligent.
    I respect her choice of limited focus.
    One can not be on all issues.

    I have enjoyed the good debates
    I have learned much, expecially from FOS who loved pounding
    me with the LAW on my ignorance.

    YES – I learn from those who criticize me!!

    Kane and Cyclops had good insights and feed back among others.

    Generic (?) is refreshing to read intelligent, open minded, not part of
    anyone’s click. At least so far, unless an excellent actor or actress? 😉

    Departing is such sweet …

  80. 80 jezebel282

    George,

    “You can ban me.
    You can edit me.
    You can disagree with my facts or opinions.”

    I haven’t
    I try not to
    I do when I think you are wrong.

    “Departing is such sweet …”
    That is your option and your choice. No one else’s. If you cannot control your responses, I will.

    Mike,

    Do try to hold yourself together.

    Happy Holidays, to those appropriate.

    Weeeee!

    It’s Budget Transfer Time Again!

    Let’s spin the wheel of pain and see how much the Town Attorney wins this time!

    $461,014!

    I am sure the Council won’t ask a single question about this and vote unanimously on the request.

    re: George #79

    Et al,

    I am not part of any click, and as either Groucho Marx or WC Fields once said, ” I wouldn’t be a member of any club which would have me as a member”

    I am just a simple person who has in my humble opinion objective perspectives on all which is occurring in town and elsewhere. I have considered politics, however I do not believe that I have the patients for it, or the ability to put up with the BS which I see occurring.

    I have been asked by both the republicans and democrats to run for council, others have asked me to run for mayor, neither of which will ever happen.

    so I thank George for his observations of my posts and hope that I can maintain objectivity as time progresses.
