To those of us concerned about City Hall management and its inability to provide affordable City services rather than punitive taxes decreasing property values the top story was the so called Reorg with its $150k “Chiefs” costing the City over a million for the next decade and further demonstrating the “lack of appreciation” of modern business management skills. Business interests closely follow how Norwalk is governed. Which explains why we have a very small business sector.

Second was hiring an Economic Director with a public transporation background to encourage business development in Norwalk. That’s certainly a “novel” approach to economic development. Given the predecessor was from Newtown where there is no economic development to speak of.

Both of these comments reflect the view that Norwalk’s future crucially depends on encouraging a major business sector and becoming a real City. Not just remaining a “commuter City”. That ensures a Bridgeport solution.
