Changing for the Better, Really?

Stratford still hasn’t bounced back with any sort of significance since the 2008 economic downturn.  Property values for much of Stratford have not bounced back much at all.  The Harkins’ administration does not really appear to have vision for Stratford’s future other than a bunch of condos, apartment buildings with probably a few self-storage facilities thrown in wherever they will fit (kind of like those condos across from DeLuca field).  What reality is John Harkins really living in?

  1. It sounds like Harkins would like to increase our taxes as payback for his failed effort to sell off the sewer plant. And it looks like he would love for everyone to blame the Council for cutting funding for poor children of Stratford.

    Which will equate with more students, a higher board of ed budget and higher taxes…BRILLIANT MOVE!!!!! In the time being has ANY of those car keys been collected or HUGE raises been reversed???

    Way to go new town council, asleep at the switch already!!!!!!

  3. It sounds like Harkins and Feehan are getting us ready for another increase in our taxes. Perhaps as high as another 4% with no cut in sewer fees.

    The latest is that after passing through a whopping $7.4 million increase in this year’s Board of Education budget without a single cut and issuing $65 million in bonds for the SHS renovation, Feehan claims he is “cracking down” on out of Town students who don’t pay tuition. Really? That’s the biggest BOE problem?

    And what will the Council do?
