                    Even after December 12th the residents and taxpayers of Stratford will be burdened by the symptoms of James R. Miron’s disastrous administration. These particular examples have violated the public trust on multiple occasions by lying to the public, lying to their own staff, participating in […]

All of which leads us to ask why “Chief” Cavanaugh finds it so necessary to lie to his own firefighters and to the public he is supposed to protect? Or is it because that’s the way he was trained in Waterbury?

Note to male readers: Similarly, it is not allowed to call the FD and request assistance specifically from Asst Chief Murray.

For months now, James R. Miron has been blaming the “Republican opposition” on the Council for every failure of his administration. This is hardly likely. The Charter that took effect on Dec 12th 2005 gave the mayor almost unlimited power. The Council is nearly powerless to stop any antic of the mayor. Witness the hiring […]

Vote? Who Me?


If you are reading this, you are already interested in the election and will probably vote. So no offense, but this isn’t directed to you. It is directed to your family, neighbors and friends. Four years ago, through a split vote, James R. Miron became the first mayor of Stratford in 350 years. He won […]
