Not going to get into an ugly fight over lies, think what you want ,the people that really know me, know it's lies. I am not going to resort to slandering fellow candidates to win. I would rather lose running a clean campaign , than win by being false and ugly about things.

That is exactly right, other companies gave money on the project too, from what I understand. I am glad ya'll did! I appreciate the fact that the road was repaved, it needed it badly.

First of all , I am not a thief. As a matter of fact, I was the treasurer for the baseball committee for years, there was never any money missing and there were NO indiscretions where the books were concerned- and the girls at the bank can vouch for that. The whole committee can vouch for that. Secondly, there is only one person who has EVER accused me of such a thing,(huh?) so I know who is doing this.For whatever reason you just want to see me fall. Third, I think the people of Bridgeport are smart enough to see through what you are trying to do. So go ahead, I am not going to lower myself to your level. I am not going to speak ill of my opponents, or even you. I said I would run a clean campaign, and I will. Because when I tell someone I will do something,I do what I say.

You are really trying hard to spread your lies. The sad thing is, you are too cowardly to say any of this to my face- for two reasons- you are a coward and afraid to face me, and because you know you are lying and don't want to be charged with slander. You make yourself look bad continually getting on here and going on and on with this. Either grow up and quit hiding behind a screen name, present proof of your accusations(which is a physical impossibilty- because we both know it's not true)or drop it. Like I said, the people that really know me will not listen to this.
Nothing personal, but....responding to comments on topix isn't helping your cause. Free advice: don't sink to the bottom of the stink pit by responding on here. This isn't a political debate. It is a place that will drag you down and end up making you look ugly. As a wise man once said, "be yourself for those who matter don't mind and those who mind don't matter." Dr. Seuss.

You are right. I was thinking the same thing after I posted earlier. It's hard not to respond when someone is trying to slander your name.

You have never been honest & respectful. I will say it again you have sticky fingers and I can't even imagine how sticky they would be if you were to actually win but I have more faith in the citizens of bridgeport that they will see you for what you are.

There is NO reason for anyone to start rumors or hateful, horrible comments about anyone JUST because someone is running for office and wants to better their community. If you don't support someone, then don't vote for them, don't get on a public forum and bash them and start rumors, I don't care who is running for office, you have to give them credit for stepping up and actually trying to make a difference in their community. We all won't ever like everyone and that's SAD, but, when it comes to our community, we all need to stick together and try to be the change we wish to see and help the people that are able to make positive things happen, NOT PUT THEM DOWN AND BELITTLE THEM, that's just not right..

If you want to stop rumors prove why you aren't at beaulieu and on the fire dept quit running around crying about it. A honest person wants to clear their name and will clear their name not try to blame everyone else.
