    How can ANYONE put their childs life in NEON’S hands when they should be shut down before summer gets here?

  2. WOW!

    Why would the city of Norwalk give NEON $92,000 to run the summer program instead of another organization! Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!

  3. Things that makes go hmmm

    Don’t forget the mayor stated he is not giving them the money until they have someone in place to make sure they manage the money right.
