Sad reality is that Fairfield County Legisltors have not been successful advocates for transportation. Given the endemic billion dollar CT Budget Deficits we know our future. Our Gold Coast serves CT.

Jim is a good guy we use to sit in on his meetings in Stamford. His solutions to problems can sometimes be worse than the problems themselves.

Maybe he has changed , calling out politicians would be a suggestion ,not for them the state may not be in the red all the time.
